Hey all! Welcome back to The Review, where I use tables and numbers to talk about what Riot's most recent balance patch actually affected, and by how much.

9.12 was fun, with balance changes to a couple key champions (Aatrox, Sylas), significant reworks (Mordekaiser, Ryze), and random buffs that brought champions back from the dead (Karma). Not much in the way of items in this one, so we'll stick to champions, and take a look at how people are doing on Mordekaiser.

Simple Champion Changes:

Champion Role Change WR 9.11  ⇒  WR 9.12 PR 9.11  ⇒  PR 9.12
Aatrox Top Nerf 50.29%  ⇘  48.86% 10.86%  ⇒  9.18%
Aatrox Jungle Nerf 47.73%  ⇓  44.66% 2.47%  ⇒  1.97%
Aatrox Middle Nerf 50.91%  ⇘  49.82% 2.2%  ⇒  2.49%
Ashe Bottom Buff 51.13%  ⇒  51.68% 4.81%  ⇒  5.45%

Nautilus Support Nerf 51.56%  ⇘  50.21% 13.71%  ⇒  11.94%
Ryze Top Rework v7 45.09%  ⇒  44.81% 4.51%  ⇒  4.41%
Ryze Middle Rework v7 44.51%  ⇒  44.07% 5.87%  ⇒  7.82%
Sylas Top Nerf 47.76%  ⇓⇓⇓  41.07% 5.22%  ⇘  2.60%
Sylas Middle Nerf 49.00%  ⇓⇓⇓  41.30% 12.85%  ⇓  5.45%

Zac Jungle Buff 46.94%  ⇑  49.50% 4.36%  ⇒  4.19%

Notes:

  • Aatrox: And so the roller coaster continues. He got strong for a second there, and likely still is at higher levels of play, but his overall WR takes appears to be back on the downswing.

  • Karma: Oh. Alright then. Absurdly strong in all 3 lanes. Nice. Something tells me this won't last long.

  • Ryze: I'm not even sure if I should bother learning the rework or just wait for the next one. No huge movements in WR/PR just yet, but it'll take some time for the rework to settle in. Probably will end up a fair bit stronger than v6, given the numbers are already about even and people haven't had time to develop mastery yet.

  • Master Yi: Always interesting when a bugfix has that sort of effect on a champion. Probably still not meta, but Yi does clear the 50% mark once more.

  • Sylas: I'm not even sure what to say, outside of: goodbye to solo queue Sylas, you won't be missed (by me at least).

  • Zac: Riot does right by Zac, giving him follow-up buffs are reworking his ultimate last patch. Not sure where he'll land, but in a much better place than he was last patch.

Mordekaiser Top Item WRs by Slot (Patch 9.12, n > 500)

Item Built 1st Built 2nd Built 3rd
Rylai's Crystal Scepter 54.18% 56.89% 59.63%
Liandry's Torment 53.91% 58.52% 61.70%
Hextech Protobelt-01 53.71% 56.56% 63.68%
Hextech Gunblade 51.85% 59.04% 63.94%
Morellonomicon 50.73% 55.42% 61.38%
Zhonya's Hourglass 46.70% 50.74% 58.75%
Nashor's Tooth 56.91% 61.80% 63.77%
Sunfire Cape 50.43% 53.48% 59.62%
Spirit Visage 49.81% 53.32% 60.38%
Dead Man's Plate 55.10% 60.37%
Thornmail 53.78% 56.07%
Rabadon's Deathcap 65.41%
Void Staff 61.06%

TL;DR: People seem to still be experimenting pretty heavily, but Rylai's ⇒ Liandry's appears to be a staple. Protobelt seems pretty good as a rush item. Tank items perform pretty well later on (especially in the 4th or 5th slot which aren't displayed here). Nashor's Tooth is probably silly, but has a decent WR on an okay sample size.
