With 7.3 comes a new Split! Following our new approach for Ranked in Season 7 we are adjusting players variance rating and not their direct MMR. Preserving MMR allows for strong matches at the start of the split. Variance resetting will allow for players to move more quickly. This results in similarly intense matches while letting players MMR value more more rapidly. Feel you belong in Gold but are stuck in Silver? Here is your chance to prove it! But be careful, this works in the reverse as well! Focus up and try your best to earn your MMR!

This new approach allowed the start of Season 7 to establish a healthy Matchmaking Curve quickly using previous data as a strong starting point. Players quickly found their MMR values and had healthier matches along the way. Continue to expect the Matchmaker to really refine its understanding of each players skill level over the coming splits! We do however strive to find improvements to address concerns that arise. Variance reset has shown many positives, but the initial strength of the reset felt too swingy. Lowering the Variance reset amount will help with this. We also saw player concerns about players obtaining Masters and then not trying as much due to demotion not being a penalty. Masters players can now demote out of Masters. If you want to keep the illustrious title reserved for only the top players, you have to work to keep it! Good Luck!

  • This split will feature a soft variance reset.
  • For players below 37% Variance will be reset to 37% Variance. (Was previously 53%.)
  • God Leaderboards are not reset this split, rather will be reset at Mid Season. Earn some Diamond Boarders and show off your stuff with your favorite gods!
  • MMR is not reset this split.
  • Masters Division players can now demote out of Masters Division following the standard demotion rules.

7.3 Balance Live with the Grim Omens Update March 24

Item Balance

MagesBlessing T1 Mage's Blessing

Mage's Blessing at the top level was often being ignored in favor of more successful aggressive starts or early stacking item rushes. We want to ensure that building a Blessing is at least a solid choice for its role, and an increase in Magical Power should do just that.

  • Increased Magical Power from 20 to 30.

EnchantedRing T2 EnchantedRing T2 Enchanted Ring

Enchanted Ring (the tier 2 of the ring tree) had an odd power curve. When purchased it often resulted in a large amount of unspent gold. We are making its cost match closer to other tier 2 items and giving it power to match that cost.

  • Increased Cost from 1100 to 1300.
  • All Tier 3 items building from this will remain the same total cost.
  • Increased Power from 40 to 55.

DevourersGauntlet T3 DevourersGauntlet T3 Devourer's Gauntlet

Devourer's Gauntlets have been slowely phased out in favor of Transcendance rushes or Bloodforge rushes. Devourer's Gauntlet and Bloodforge shared similar identities in a finished build, further pushing one to be stronger than the other. We are increasing the Lifesteal of Devourer's Gauntlet to make it the clear winner when it comes to sustain, while letting Bloodforge and Transcendance be the strong immediate power spikes.

  • Increased Base Physical Lifesteal from 10% to 15%.

God Balance

T Aphrodite Default Icon Aphrodite

Aphrodite brings strong utility and allows a hyper carry to play much more aggressively than normally possible. While a strong strength to have, Aphrodite players don't feel that strength as directly and also makes her more team composition depended. We are reducing the cooldown on Kiss early and giving Love Birds an initial hit. These changes will give her better utility and damage for herself and will give Love Birds better feedback as to when an enemy was hit.

  • Icons Aphrodite A01 Kiss
  • Reduced cooldown from 16/15/14/13/12 to 14/13.5/13/12.5/12.
  • Icons Aphrodite A03 Love Birds
  • Now has an initial hit.
  • 15/25/35/45/55 (+15% of your magical power).

T Cerberus Default Icon Cerberus

Cerberus is an aggressive frontline guardian but lacked the base health late game to fully accomplish that goal. A boost to his per level should give him that extra bit of presence needed to succeed.

  • General
  • Increased HP per level from 86 to 95.

T GuanYu Default Icon Guan Yu

Guan Yu's dash had a locked camera, making this ability handle strangely and prevented Guan Yu from quickly turning like other dashes allow. This will make Guan Yu more responsive. A true “quality of life” change.

  • Icons GuanYu A02 Warrior's Will
  • Removed the camera lock when using this ability.

T Merlin Default Icon Merlin

Merlin's mastery over magic has been felt by many a player, giving validity to his claim of being a Master Wizard. His fire stance in particular can melt enemies who are caught out. A reduction to Dragonfire and his Elemental Mastery's scaling will decrease the situations he can destroy an enemy with little chance to fight back.

  • Icons Merlin Fire A02 Dragonfire
  • Decreased Magical Power Scaling damage per tick from 25% to 20%.
  • Icons Merlin Arcane A04Icons Merlin Fire A04Icons Merlin Ice A04 Elemental Mastery
  • Decreased Magical Power Scaling damage per hit from 20% to 15%.

T NuWa Default Icon Nu Wa

Clay Soldiers are integral to Nu Wa really bringing burst to a fight. The lack of scaling movement speed and the long cooldown however really limited her damage capability and hurt her overall reliability. By boosting these we expect Nu Wa players to have more control over landing her full combo.

  • Icons NuWa A02 Clay Soldiers
  • Increased Base Movement Speed from 365 to 365/380/395/410/425.
  • Decreased Cooldown from 18 to 16.

T Olorun Default Icon Olorun

The Ruler of the Heavens often sees his reign cut short, struggling to succeed in the early game and having a late game that didn't compensate for that weakness. Focused Light and Consecration are his core clear and self peel abilities. Improving these will allow him more success in the early game. Touch of Fate is getting a bump, giving him a more rewarding late game for both his in-hands and the improved Focused Light.

  • Icons Olorun Passive Touch of Fate
  • Increased Olorun's Critical hits from 50% increased damage to 60%.
  • Icons Olorun A01 Focused Light
  • Increased damage from 100/145/190/235/280 to 110/155/200/245/290.
  • Icons Olorun A03 Consecration
  • Increased Slow from 20% to 30%.

T Persephone Default Icon Persephone

Persephone is getting a sweeping list of changes to allow her players to better show their skill with Harvest while reducing her ultimate ability's effectiveness when blindly thrown at an enemy team. Harvest will see a reduction in mechanical clunk and a quicker growth time. Additionally her Harvest Flower will now run the same distance but in a shorter time, giving opponents a smaller window to juke the plants bite. Finally, her Ultimate will now be more escapable when trapped alone and will take longer to grab onto enemies as they try to flee its grasp.

  • Icons Persephone A02 Harvest
  • General
  • Decreased prefire time on this ability from .2s to .1s.
  • Decreased minimum distance between Harvest placements from 5 units to 2.5 units.
  • Sprout
  • Decreased Magical Power Scaling from 80 to 75%.
  • Decreased time the base Harvest plant takes to evolve into a sprout from 4s to 2.5s.
  • Flower
  • Decreased Magical Power Scaling from 90 to 85%.
  • Decreased time the base Harvest plant takes to evolve into a flower from 24s to 16s.
  • Decreased chase time from 3s to 2.2s.
  • Increased movement speed from 440 to 600.
  • Icons Persephone A04 Grasp of Death
  • Decreased Base Damage from 195/270/345/420/495 to 175/245/315/385/455.
  • Decreased speed at which a tether will reach to grab you by 50%.
  • Decreased Attack Speed penalty from 20/22.5/25/27.5/30% to 15% at all ranks.

T Sobek Default Icon Sobek

Sobek previously bullied the solo lane with Guardian's Blessing, making it difficult to truly buff him as a support. Now that Guardian's Blessing has protections against use in the Solo lane we are bringing strength back to this God of the Nile.

  • General
  • Increased HP per level from 86 to 95.
  • Icons Sobek SickeningStrike Sickening Strike
  • Increased Healing per hit from 20/30/40/50/60 to 30/40/50/60/70.

T Sol Default Icon Sol

Sol is seeing a variety of feels changes that will make her smoother to play. Unstable Manifestation's heat decay was rapid, punishing Sol heavily for being out of combat for even a second. We are slowing this decay down to give more wiggle room in ability activation and picking fights. Radiance will no longer push back minions making it easier to use as a clear tool. Finally, Supernova will now deploy more quickly and provide a large burst of heat. Supernova will be more impactful both in its immediate effect and giving a second way to quickly build heat when needed. Sol is really heating things up!

  • Icons Sol Passive Unstable Manifestation
  • Sol loses heat less fast once Heat starts its decay.
  • Decay speed reduced by 25%.
  • Icons Sol A01 Radiance
  • The damage from this ability no longer causes minion hit reactions.
  • Icons Sol A04 Supernova
  • Time between shots decreased from 0.24 to 0.18.
  • Increased the heat gain from firing this ability from 10 to 40.

T XingTian Default Icon Xing Tian

Since Xing Tian's Project Olympus patch that ironed out many issues and bugs that he had, he has surged into popularity as a top competitive support. He brings strong aggression and crowd control to any team. We are decreasing some of the extra damage from Sky Cutting Axe and the late game control of Hook Slam, keeping him in a strong position but letting other Supports compete more directly.

  • Icons XingTian A02 Hook Slam
  • Decreased duration of Root from 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2s to 1/1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4s.
  • Icons XingTian A03 Sky-Cutting Axe
  • Decreased damage from 65/85/105/125/145 to 60/80/100/120/140.
