League of Legends Patch 10.7 is on the horizon, and it’s noticeably smaller than the last few. That doesn’t mean big changes aren’t on the way though, with buffs to Akali, Kai’Sa, Galio, and more, as well as the Fiddlesticks rework release, and Star Guardian Urgot — kind of.

After a few massive patches in recent weeks, League players will be given a slight reprieve in Patch 10.7. While less changes are touted for the April 1 update, they will still have an impact on the meta.


Lead gameplay designer Mark ‘Scruffy’ Yetter ran through what League players should expect from Patch 10.7 on March 23 with a general preview of the update.

Could Akali make a return to the meta on Patch 10.7?

The return of the Season 9 meta?

At the top of the list, some of Season 9’s most obnoxious champions could be making a return to the Rift in the upcoming patch. Buffs to Akali, Kai’Sa, Galio, and Corki are all in the pipeline after they were all gutted in some fashion by the start of Season 10.


Some of the buffs aren’t that major ⁠— like Akali’s Shuriken Flip being moved into magic damage instead of physical ⁠— but others could bring some champions back into the mix.

For example, Galio’s ultimate, Hero’s Entrance, will now grant all allies a magic damage shield, equal to that of his W passive, for five seconds. It brings back a bit more defensive utility to his ultimate after it was nerfed in Patch 8.24.

Nasus, Riven, Ivern, and Xin Zhao are also in line for buffs on Patch 10.7.


Wukong nerfed yet again

On the other end of the spectrum, three champions will have a bit of their power cut in some much-needed nerfs. The newly-released Wukong rework will have to survive another set of changes, while directed changes at Nocturne mid, Talon, and Garen are also in planning.

Wukong was the subject of a hotfix immediately after the release of his Patch 10.6 rework, having power stripped from his passive, base health regeneration, and W clone damage. His Patch 10.7 nerfs are specifically targeting his late game tankiness and his E burst damage.

The other three champions might come as a surprise, however all picks have proven to be strong in the right hands. Nocturne has found himself in the mid lane more than jungle as of late, while Garen is too tanky for his own good in the top lane after his Patch 10.4 buff.


On top of that, Talon has been dominating high-elo solo queue, and was a late addition into the patch after Riot analyzed his power in the upper echelons of play.

Wukong is getting nerfed once again.

Star Guardian Urgot is here — finally

The 2020 April Fools skin set is also to be released, which is good timing given the patch’s release date. And yes, Star Guardian Urgot is now official.


League players across the globe finally getting their wishes fulfilled with a Pajama Guardian Cosplay Urgot skin based on the popular skin line. While it’s not a fully-fledged Star Guardian Urgot skin, the pedantics of it shouldn’t wind anyone up.

Veigar and Tristana also received new cosmetics for April Fools, cosplaying Furyhorn and Pengu respectively. Maokai, Malzahar, and Sion will also be getting new skins in the Worldbreaker line for Patch 10.7.

Finally, the Fiddlesticks VGU will be hitting live servers in the upcoming update. His kit has undergone a major rework to give him more relevancy in the modern game, and his visuals have been updated to fit his terrifying nature.

League of Legends Patch 10.7 will be released on April 1. You can find a preview of all the changes below.

Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
