The next patch for League of Legends is drawing near, and several champions will either be nerfed or buffed.

A day after releasing the tentative buffs and nerfs list for Patch 10.22, League gameplay designer Mark Yetter announced the full patch preview, which he says is not completely “locked,” but that it’s still “pretty close.”

In total, 12 champions will be changed in some manner, with those alterations varying in degree. For example, the developers are buffing several parts of Brand’s kit, while Karthus’ Q damage is the only thing set to be touched in the upcoming patch.

Here are all of the buffs, nerfs, and other changes announced for League Patch 10.22.

  • Sejuani: R short range damage increased to 125-175. R long range damage and delayed explosion increased to 200-400.
  • Xayah: Attack speed per level increased to 3.9 percent.

  • Lulu (top lane): Q damage decreased to 80-220.

Chaos confirm plan to exit CS:GO

Chaos have announced that they will release their CS:GO roster at the end of 2020, confirming an earlier report from DBLTAP that indicated the organisation were pondering an exit from the game and exploring potential transfers for all of its members.

In a blog post, Chaos also revealed they would be parting ways with their Rainbow Six: Siege roster, and focusing on a transition towards “supporting more content creators both in and outside gaming.” The statement pointed towards the lasting impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as the reason for their exit, with Chaos saying that the global health crisis has been responsible for “removing a large portion of revenue that esports teams need to stay competitive and effectively support their players.”

MarKE and company will be released by Chaos at the end of the year

Chaos first entered CS:GO in 2018, then under the Digital Chaos banner, signing a Swedish roster that contained the likes of Jacob “⁠pyth⁠” Mourujärvi, Markus “⁠pronax⁠” Wallsten, and Mikail “⁠Maikelele⁠” Bill. After rebranding and undergoing a handful of roster changes, Chaos went on to part ways with their Swedish lineup, transitioning across the pond to North America with the signing of Ben’s Anime Team.

Initially led by Joshua “⁠steel⁠” Nissan, Chaos enjoyed modest success, reaching No. 19 in the world rankings with 3-4th place finishes in the North American divisions of DreamHack Open Summer and ESL One Cologne. The team continued to rise following the departure of their Canadian captain, peaking at No. 17 with Edgar “⁠MarKE⁠” Maldonado and securing wins against the likes of FURIA and Evil Geniuses.

Chaos are currently competing in DreamHack Masters Winter North America, and will play their final event under the organisation at IEM Global Challenge in Europe, set to run from December 15-20 with $500,000 on offer. The team also hold a spot in the play-in portion of IEM Katowice 2021, but may be going their separate ways prior to the event, according to Jonathan “⁠Jonji⁠” Carey, should they not receive any offers from organisations.

Chaos’ roster consists of:

United States Anthony “⁠vanity⁠” Malaspina
United States Erick “⁠Xeppaa⁠” Bach
United States Nathan “⁠leaf⁠” Orf
Canada Jonathan “⁠Jonji⁠” Carey
Mexico Edgar “⁠MarKE⁠” Maldonado

United States Matthew “⁠mCe⁠” Elmore (coach)

From there, the remaining matches will be played in a best-of-three format, with the top two sides from each group advancing to the playoffs.

The eight teams coming out of the groups will face off in a single-elimination, best-of-three playoff bracket for the $17,500 first-place prize, which will be awarded to the winner of the grand final, scheduled for December 20.

forZe (no.28) are the highest-ranked side in attendance

FURIA, EG qualify for IEM Katowice 2021; Liquid, Chaos to Play-in tournament

Avatar

Published

on

FURIA and Evil Geniuses have claimed the first two spots at IEM Katowice 2021’s main tournament via the Road to Katowice ranking, it was announced on Wednesday. Liquid and Chaos will have to battle their way through the Play-In stage, a 16-team last-chance qualifier that will have eight spots on the line.

Liquid required a deep run in DreamHack Masters Winter Europe to have a shot at overtaking EG in the Road to Katowice table, but they were unable to post a single victory and left the tournament in 13th-16th place. They will still compete in the IEM Global Challenge before the end of the year, but this tournament will not have any ESL Pro Tour points on offer.

EG will compete at IEM Katowice 2021

IEM Katowice 2021 will take place between February 16 and 28, with a $1 million prize pool on the line. It will be the first ESL Pro Tour event to be played under the new double-weekend format, which will allow ESL and DreamHack to focus on storytelling while giving teams more time to prepare for the playoff matches.

The Play-In and the group stage of the main tournament are expected to be held in the new ESL Pro Tour Studio, a dedicated studio in Europe that will open in 2021 and will fully comply with all Covid-19 safety protocols. It remains unclear whether ESL will be able to host the playoff matches at the Spodek Arena.

Liquid and Chaos join Illuminar, the winner of ESL Polish Championship Autumn, on the team list for the Play-In tournament. Six more teams will qualify through the ESL Pro Tour ranking (three in Europe, and one in Asia, Oceania and South America), while six others will earn invites based on the ESL world ranking. The final spot will go to the winner of the ESL European Championship Winter 2020.

Below you can find the current team list for IEM Katowice 2021:

Heroic, mousesports, Gambit, and FURIA are the first four teams confirmed for the eight-team, single-elimination playoffs of DreamHack Masters Winter Europe. With the tournament coming down to just twelve teams, the bracket for the playoffs has been decided.

If Cloud9 make playoffs, woxic will face off against his former team

The aforementioned squads, which made it through the group stage with back-to-back victories, won’t face each other in the opening matches, as their opponents will come from the lower bracket squads.

Fighting for the playoffs are G2 and Astralis, with Gambit set to face the winner of that matchup. Heroic looks to have an easier task, taking on the winner of GODSENTNorth, while Chris “⁠chrisJ⁠” de Jong will play against his former teammate Özgür “⁠woxic⁠” Eker if Cloud9 manage to take down Spirit. Finally, FURIA will lock horns with either Complexity or FaZe for a spot in the semis.

The quarter-final matches will kick off on Friday, December 4, and culminate with a BO5 grand final on Sunday, December 6, when the winner of the $150,000 tournament will be decided.

The DreamHack Masters Winter Europe playoff bracket is as follows:

Denmark Heroic vs. Europe GODSENT/Denmark North
Europe mousesports vs. Russia Spirit/Europe Cloud9
Russia Gambit vs. Europe G2/Denmark Astralis
Brazil FURIA vs. Europe Complexity/Europe FaZe
