Throughout the last few years, Riot has taken older champions, or champions with a low play rate, and upgraded their kits with small adjustments called Mid-Scope Updates. This has improved some champions greatly, like Rell and Syndra. 

Well, now Riot Phreak is taking another champion under his microscope to make sure that he finally gets played in the bot lane once more. Who are we talking about? Well, none other than Corki, of course.

Corki is one of the oldest champions, and in recent years he has only been played by pro players when they needed someone to counter Azir. But there was a time, long before you might have played League of Legends, where Corki was actually a bot laner. 

Well, with these changes that Riot Phreak is proposing, Corki might just be back in the bot lane, with the devs thinking of making him an early game focused champion. Will these proposed changes work?

With these changes, Corki would have a much stronger Q thanks to the increased missile speed and AD buffs. The fact that they're getting rid of his iconic Package is also interesting, since that was the power most played around, and now he is a much more straightforward champion. 

Riot did include a lot of buffs, because Corki would lose a lot of power without Package. The ultimate was nerfed though, so it doesn't scale as hard. The team also had to include a nerf to the Ammo, but to compensate, players can now get refunds on champion auto attacks.
