Riot plans to examine the effects of preseason changes on jungler performance

Prior to the final League of Legends patch of 2019, Riot Games’ design director Andrei “Meddler” van Roon gave fans some insight today into what the developers will be doing this month, including an examination of how the preseason changes have affected both the jungle and support positions.

If Riot needs to, it’ll make adjustments in Patch 9.24b. One of the main focuses that the team has for the jungle is comparing the average level of players at different stages of the game before and after the big preseason changes. Riot also wants to take a look at the variation between jungler performance after the changes to the jungle.
