With the patch 10.17 passed over, and Riots return for a disconnect, recharge, and reboot, which was a week away. The 10.18 patch notes are here for League of Legends, with a tiny number of changes remaining; the cycle is a pause.
However, the usual set of new skins and champion changes are beginning to come. Now let us move on to the new features available in ‘League of Legends’ patch 10.18. Scroll further to know more!
‘League of Legends’: Latest features in store for players
First of all, there is a set of bright and shiny new Psyops skins on the horizon. Not just that, Ziggs, from another alternative universe in the league does a comeback in this patch, with Hextech skin. The good champions, who get to wear the PsyOps skins are Ezreal, Shen, Sona, Vi, and Master Yi. Ezreal receives not only the set of PsyOps skins but also the golden-hued prestige edition. The PBE is now hit with few of the splash art for these items, so players have to check on the champions skin section to get a more superior look.
However, when you look at the balance changes for champions, there seems to be only a tiny amount which is up for testing. However, expectance for the arrival of more is there in the coming days of the ‘League of Legends’ patch 10.18. Not just that, there are also changes in the live game for ‘League of Legends‘ patch 10.17, based on an announcement by Riot on August 19th.
