Bonus Balance (Live July 26)

The first bonus update for Mid Season 9 is ready to go! The most important change to the new mid season items are the bug fixes. Sphinx’s Bauble is going to be back and will be closely watched for possible balance changes in the second bonus update coming 2 weeks later. Looking beyond the new content, we set our sights on Warrior Junglers. These are still overperforming and thus pushing many Assassins out of the viable god pool, so we are stacking some specific nerfs across the top gods and items in this archetype. Hopefully we will see Erlang Shen and Osiris drop in their prioritization in SPL and make room for more gods in that role. Additionally, Chernobog is seeing a small nerf after being the number one most contested god in SPL in the first weekend of the new update. Mid Season is a 6 week update we are further out from 9.8 than usual, but there will be another round of bonus changes to make sure nothing runs wild for too long.
