LoL Patch 10.2 notes: A big nerf for Aphelios

With the last patch, an abomination was introduced in the person of the most overpowered champion that might have ever been implemented in League of Legends: Aphelios.

Quickly portrayed as the edgiest champion of the Rift, the Weapon of the Faithful is undergoing some heavy changes that should hopefully make him fair to play against.

Announced for this cycle, the Wukong update won't finally be shipped with this patch, and we can only hope that patch 10.3 will, at last, be the one.

If you can't wait to start playing ranked again, don't worry: patch 10.2 should quickly be deployed on the live servers.
