Riot shines a light on the upcoming Assassin class changes

Riot lets us in on their vision for the Assassin class and its upcoming changes.

Riot posted on its forums recently about upcoming plans to adjust the Assassin class in League of Legends. The developer has learned from past class adjustments and is planning to put quality of change over quantity of change -- even though it seems like a daunting task to correctly address some of the major concerns with the champions grouped in the Assassin class.

Some of the issues addressed in the post are Assassin damage, their survivability, and their usefulness to the team as a whole. Riot poster, Statikk, reassures players that they want the gameplay of Assassins to be healthy -- giving both sides, attacker and victim, chances to outplay one another. These small windows will allow for player skill to shine, as opposed to people feeling helpless when going up against one another.

There was not a time table given for release of this update; however, Riot did provide a loose list of champions they'd would like to address with this class adjustment. Those champions are as follow:

  • Akali
  • Ekko
  • Evelyn
  • Fizz
  • Kassadin
  • Katarina
  • Kha’Zix
  • LeBlanc
  • Rengar
  • Shaco
  • Talon
  • Zed

This list was reiterated to not be a definitive list, but to be used as a guideline for potential updates.

Which champions would you like to see tweaked or overhauled with this class adjustment pass?
