Riot hotfixes Sylas after changes "undershot" in League Patch 10.1

The chain-wielding mid lane champion Sylas received an extensive set of buffs in League of Legends Patch 10.1. But it apparently wasn’t enough, according to lead game designer Mark Yetter.

“Sylas changes in 10.1 undershot,” he wrote on Twitter, detailing a hotfix focusing on the champion’s sustained base damage for bruiser builds. The changes to Sylas in 10.1 were originally designed to shift his mechanics to give him more weaknesses at high elos while still making him a viable champion for the majority of players.
