Who will get a buff and who will get a nerf in 12.1 in LoL? Riot realized its mistake from six months ago

We have already learned about Riot’s plans for the next update, marked as 12.1.

Patch 12.1 is primarily a big nerf of one of the summoner spells. There has been a lot of talk about teleport and it will actually be changed. The players will definitely feel the nerf and now a lot of people are arguing with each other whether these changes are needed.

Riot also revealed some changes for the character and, while the buffs are already fully known, we have to wait for the nerfs. The good thing is that this is already a complete list of who can expect changes. It’s worth mentioning that Riot postponed changes to Rengar for patch 12.2.
