Major changes coming to Aatrox in League of Legends patch 9.9 update

League of Legends

League of Legends Aatrox is about to receive a major update in the patch 9.9. This information has been revealed out by the LOL senior game designer Jeevun ‘Jag’ Sidhu.

Talking about Aatrox there always been some issue, sometimes it became too overpowered, where it can easily move in between top lane, mid lane and in trying to balance out things, it got so much nerfed, which it made became unuseful.

Well balancing a game with 100 champions is not that easy, and too for both professional and casual play. League of Legends is a game where tactical abilities can change the course of game and professional players can exploit the strength and weakness of champions very easily. So a little nerf and buff of champions can change the results.

In League of Legends update patch 9.9, Riot games will once again try to balance the Aatrox, by buffing him for normal play and nerfing him for professional play mainly by drastically reducing power in the revive, which should drop his ability to tower dive in coordinated environments and also prevent him from having so many safe matchups.
