League of Legends patch 9.11 – Little Demon Tristana and Yuumi hotfixes

The League of Legends patch 9.11 notes are now available on the PBE, introducing a fan-chosen skin and some significant changes

League of Legends

League of Legends patch 9.11 is now available on the PBE. While we don’t have a new champion to deal with this time (patch 9.10 introduced Yuumi) there are a few pretty significant balance changes worth taking a look at.

Teemo and Malphite were both back for testing earlier in this PBE cycle, but their changes have since been reworked, along with a mini-rework for Wukong. Some of the other balance changes – those being made to Camille, Diana, and Zac – are pretty substantial. Yuumi has been hotfixed during the course of patch 9.10, but there are also some minor tweaks heading to her in patch 9.11.

Elsewhere, the new patch heralds the arrival of Little Demon Tristana. The new cosmetic was the winning choice in a fan poll earlier this year, and Riot’s turnaround has been pretty impressive. Other than that, it’s a pretty quiet update on the cosmetics front, but the balance changes are big enough that I think they make up for the lack of new skins.

League of Legends patch 9.11 release date and downtime

We don’t have an exact release date for League of Legends patch 9.11, but patches normally release on a bi-weekly schedule. With that in mind, expect the new update to arrive on Wednesday, May 29.
