League of Legends Patch 10.16 Patch Preview: New Champion Balance Changes [PBE Update]  

League of Legends Patch 10.16 will go live next week and we’ve seen a small tease from Riot Scruffy at the beginning of this week. Now he’s got the full changelist with all the balance changes headed to PBE. All the following new stats are now being tested on PBE and will probably suffer more changes until the end of this week.
