Patch 10.19 nerfs Akali and Lucian to avoid risk of taking over Worlds meta

We finally know the details of the next version of League of Legends, Patch 10.19, the Patch that will be played in the upcoming 2020 World Championship.

This Patch brings some small changes to finish shaping the meta for the biggest international tournament. Once again, is Riot Games’ Lead Gameplay Designer, Mark Yetter, who has described all the details and also has cleared two extra things:

In the first place, the nerfs that Talon and Nunu received with the last Patch 10.18 will be removed with the release of the new version, since according to the data gathered by Riot Games, both champs “are actually not as strong as they previously appeared”.

Second, it seems like the videogame company has realized how dangerous Akali and Lucian are in their game, and how big the risk that they “could take over the worlds meta” is. That is why Mark Yetter confirms that they have added small nerfs to both champs, in order to avoid a 100% pick and ban with these two.

With this two important news being clear, here we got the nerfs and buffs list!
