League of Legends patch 12.16 will be one of the first sets of updates focusing on the 2022 Worlds Championship and introducing changes with the professional scene in mind.

There will be a fair bit of buffs and nerfs this time, with the developers targeting some outliers and ironing out some rough edges.

12.16! We're cutting Vlad and still making some adjustments before locking the patch, but to give an early preview! Thanks to the designers for helping fill out the sheet while I'm in perma meetings!🙃 https://t.co/6vewwiiXPH

While the Udyr rework might be one of the biggest highlights of the update, Riot Games wants to bring some focus to some changes making their way to the title.

One of the bigger ones will be the adjustments to Diana, the Caitlyn and Kai’Sa buffs, and the nerfs to Yuumi and Zeri.
