Ivern's Mid-Scope update has been revealed on the Public Beta Environment (PBE), but fans were not happy with some of the changes that Riot had planned for the big guy in the jungle. So, Riot has listened to the fans and decided to delay the update until they can improve it.

Riot is going to listen to the community and make some changes to the champion, something the community appreciates.

LoL Mid-Scope Update For Ivern Pushed Back

Ivern has been one of the most unpopular junglers in League of Legends for a long time, something Riot hopes to fix with their Mid-Scope Update. When fans saw the changes though, they were not happy and let the developers know, which is why, the mid-scope is going to be pushed back.

Buff sharing, as well as the rest of the changes to Ivern's kit are now going to release in LoL Patch 13.11, instead of with the rest of the midseason update in Patch 13.10.

Lead Designer of the League of Legends Balance Team, Matt "Phroxzon" Leung-Harrison wrote this on Twitter:

In order to meet Ivern player expectations, we're also delaying Ivern and Buff Sharing to 13.11 in order to land a better set of changes for him.

Fans liked the update to Ivern's ultimate, as well as the on-hit changes in his kit, but a lot of the other balance changes did not go over well with the community, which Riot is now going to look into and will ship on May 31, 2023 for Patch 13.10.
