Milio is the newest Champion in League of Legends. Only a day after the release of the fire elemental support, Riot Games realized things had gotten a bit too heated and has now shipped some mid-patch adjustments to cool things down. 

The new support, Milio, hit live servers on March in Patch 13.6 and has overtaken the Summoner's Rift by storm! 

The Champion currently holds the second place for most-picked support in the game, only preceded by Thresh. But that's not all. He also has a strong win rate of 51.33% and is currently judged as S+ tier by

It is pretty impressive for a champion to have a win rate of over 51% on the day of its release. Typically, when a new champion is introduced, its win rate is not very high initially, but it gradually increases as players become more familiar with the champion. Therefore, starting off with a win rate of 51% or higher is considered quite significant, and it's understandable why Riot Games feels the need to intervene early in such cases.

So now Riot Games wants to dim Milio's flame quite a bit after just a day of being in the spotlight and has shipped a mid-patch adjustment. The Riot Games Dev team is also working on fixing a bug where Milio and Illaoi have, in some instances, caused the game to crash. 

What Are the Milio Mid-Patch Nerfs?

In particular, Riot Game's nerf focuses on Milio's Passive, W, and E. Their goal is to reduce some of his AD scaling, healing, and shielding and add some longer cooldowns on his E. 

Passive: Fired Up!

  • AD Scaling: 15-50% >>> 15-35%

W: Cozy Campfire

  • Healing: 80/110/140/170/200 >>> 70/90/110/130/150

E: Warm Hugs

  • Shields: 60/90/120/150/180 (+30% AP)>>> 60/80/100/120/140 (+25% AP)
  • Cooldown: 17/16/15/14/13 >>> 18/17/16/15/14

Despite the champion being a tad overpowered at the moment, we love the design of the new champion and are excited to see if this is a potential pick for pro players in the future. So what do you think about the new champion?
