League of Legends Patch 11.16 will attempt to introduce a significant amount of champion customization into the game.

Although the patch will hit the live servers a week later than the usual timeframe, the developers won’t take any blows when it comes to balancing the game.

Hence, this time around, some of the more overpowering picks are going to have their names on the Nerf list. One of the most notable nerfs that will arrive in the League of Legends patch 11.16 is the one that Ziggs will receive.

In the past few weeks, Ziggs had fully adopted the bot lane meta in both pro game and standard matchmaking. But with the upcoming update, the yordle will be less effective in the role.

Additionally, Jhin, Maokai, and Sivir are getting some quality of life updates that can help them get back into the meta.
