Why the changes? 

Matt Leung-Harrison, the lead designer from the League Balance Team outlined some of the thought processes behind these changes. Reksai, Renekton, and Zeri are the only champions to have received nerfs, while the developers have buffed most of the other champions.

  • Galio: Generally pretty weak and is countered particularly hard by some of the mid-range mages in the meta.
  • GP: We're happy with how he's back on Crit & he's no longer ceilinged by Pro, but he's trending a little weak overall
  • Jhin: Is pretty stable in lane still, but giving more of an ability to carry his leads through to a victory later in the game.
  • Lee Sin: Our buffs to him on 13.13 have been relatively ineffective and we overnerfed him quite a bit from his previous changes in 13.7.
  • Pyke: He's a bit weak and we'd like to buff him in ways that don't increase his frustration significantly (though with Pyke it's always a little difficult)
  • Syndra: We believe we've resolved a lot of the Elite/Pro skew on Syndra and have a bit more room to give her a small buff
  • Ziggs: Ziggs WR, esp in mid are a bit sad, especially for a champion who is relatively easy to play for most players. He also adds some flex value to the bot lane meta for Worlds.
  • Renekton: He's been the strongest top laner for a few patches and the Gore buffs pushed him over. Bringing him down a tad.
  • Rek'Sai: Similar tune for Rek'Sai. She's been the recipient of a few nerfs, but Stride was a pretty big buff for her.
  • Zeri: A small tap down to Zeri as she's been climbing up as one of the higher presence champions.
  • Randuins: Receiving a pretty significant buff, it is a pretty under-purchased item overall and aims to also be a good answer to Trist Mid double crit carry comps (especially), but has not been functioning well in that capacity.
  • Seekers: Also slightly undertuned, will be receiving a small buff.
