Champion adjustments aim to balance gameplay, including buffs for Akali and Jhin, and tweaks to Azir and LeBlanc. Apart from this, lol update 14.8 also includes bug fixes and ARAM balance changes.

Previously, a big update nerfed the staple frontliners (Ivern, Jax, Volibear), continuing to adjust Radiant Items, and making 3-star 4-costs feel as dangerous as they should be. Unfortunately, since the last patch, players are still experiencing several issues with online gameplay. Today’s LOL update 14.8 will fix a few of these issues.
