Aphelios’ long range takes a hit in upcoming League Patch 10.3

Despite Riot’s ambitious design for Aphelios, the marksman is getting nerfed for the fourth patch in a row.

League of Legends lead gameplay designer Mark “Scruffy” Yetter discussed some balance changes for Patch 10.3 in today’s Dev Corner post. And while getting destroyed by Aphelios from miles away was amusing at first, Scruffy believes that cross-map sniping is “not interactive or interesting gameplay.”
