Champion Adjustments in LoL Patch 12.14
There are multiple champions that are getting changed and adjusted in League of Legends Patch 12.14. The biggest change is going to come to Gangplank who has been a dominant force in pro-play and high elo, which is why Riot wants to move away from of the crit agency of his barrels and put that power into other parts of his kit.
Gangplank Adjustments in Patch 12.14
Riot PhRoXzOn has explained on Twitter that they are looking to take away from of Gangplank's early lane power as well to make him more bearable. Will these changes work on the strong top laner?

Champion Buffs in LoL Patch 12.14
Some champions have also got some buffs coming their way. Teemo is getting another buff. Will we finally see him be played on the pro stage sometime soon? That would be pretty epic to see, right? Teemo might be a hated champion in League of Legends, but one we rarely see in pro games.

We don't have all the stats just yet for all the champions, but we will make sure to update the list once we have more information so make sure to check back!
Champion Nerfs in LoL Patch 12.14
While the healing changes could look like nerfs for some of the champions, there are other champions on the list who will also be getting changed in the upcoming League of Legends patch just for being too OP in the current patch. Sivir is one of those champions since she's been dominating the bot lane since her mid-scope update.
