League of Legends Patch 13.7 introduces several balance tweaks to a few champions. Ahead of the Mid-Season Invitational, Riot is gradually releasing changes to the meta with this patch. Notably, this patch includes much-awaited nerfs to Zeri, one of the strongest ADCs since her introduction to the game. Her scaling has been reduced to make her less dominant in professional play. Additionally, Azir, who has also been a significant presence in professional play, will receive some small buffs to his early game while his Q’s range will be nerfed to prevent him from becoming overly reliant on poking.
Lead designer of the League of Legends balance team, Matt Leung-Harrison, has shared a detailed list of patch notes on Twitter for the upcoming 13.7 update, scheduled to be released on April 15. The tweet below includes all the changes that players can expect.

What changes are coming in League of Legends Patch 13.7?
The most significant change is Zeri’s scaling nerfs. As an electric-based Zaun champion, she has been able to dash, kite, and devastate the enemy team with her immense damage output, making her a popular pick in professional play. Riot is tweaking her scaling down to reduce her dominance before the Mid-Season Invitational. Additionally, Azir’s early game will receive a small buff while his Q’s range will be nerfed to balance his gameplay.
