LoL Patch 12.23 is going to be around for a while. This is the patch that is going to be around for the Christmas Holidays and when we need to get away from family these are the updates we need to deal with.

With the most-recent patch update we also got a few changes to the ARAM map, and a few champions got some balance adjustments as well. But now that the patch has been out for a week, Riot is making some more champion adjustments in a hotfix patch.

LoL Patch 12.23 Hotfix: ARAM Balance Changes

There are quite a few champions on the list for balance changes. Some champions have been underperforming, while other champions were just way too strong, both due to their damage, as well as tankiness, in ARAM, hence why these hotfixes will be implemented

That makes a total of 17 champions getting adjustments on the ARAM map. ADC champions are getting some love with additional damage, while tanks like Dr. Mundo are receiving much-needed nerfs. With some of the new items like Heartsteel these unkillable champions were dishing out insane poke as well.

Riot also just finished off their ARAM Clash tournament, which was the final clash of 2022. With it being so popular we could see a return in the coming year as well and more ARAM adjustments.
