Sorry Neeko Mains, Your Mid-Scope Update Still Needs Time

Neeko is one of the champions promised to receive a mid-scope update at some point and time. While the Syndra mid-scope update was just revealed not too long ago, we are going to have to wait a little longer for the Neeko update.

Neeko's mid-scope update is next on the list for champion updates from Riot Games. Earlier this year she was promised a slight rework to her abilities to improve her kit and make it more impactful in the current state of League of Legends.

Syndra had also just received a mid-scope update in LoL Patch 12.19 and it has done wonders, boosting her pick rate from 2.4% in Patch 12.18 to 15.19%. Will Neeko be seeing the same type of increase once her mid-scope update arrives? Highly likely, but you'll have to wait a bit longer for the release.

Neeko Mid-Scope Update Release Later Than Fans Expected

The Syndra mid-scope update was revealed in the August Champion Roadmap, along with the Neeko update. With Syndra's update going live many fans thought that Neeko would be quick to follow and have messaged the developers asking about the status of the champion update.

Riot Phlox, a developer sent out a Tweet asking fans for some patience, stating that the mid-scope update "she's still a little while out". So, if you've been hyped to play a reworked version of Neeko for your last-minute ranked rewards then you'll be disappointed.

Riot Phlox also explained that the team was working on keeping Neeko as close to her old champion design, while also making her more fun for fans of the champion. So, Neeko will be keeping her mimic mechanic, but what could change on her kit to make her more attractive to players?

Riot has not outlined an official release date of the Neeko mid-scope update but with this update from Riot Phlox we could expect it either at the end of the year or at the beginning of 2023. Right now we have to deal with all the pre-season changes Riot has revealed so maybe it's a good thing that Neeko's mid-scope update will be released later alongside Ahri's ASU.
