League of Legends Patch Notes — Patch 11.2 Preview (Galeforce and Kraken Slayer nerfs, Senna Buffs)

The upcoming Patch 11.2 attempts to tame the bursty nature of League of Legends that was never addressed in the Preseason. After two weeks of Season 11 Ranked play, Riot is nerfing the worst balance offenders (such as Galeforce and Kraken Slayer) while adding some power to underperforming champions.
