The 2019 ranked season is officially underway, and that means that League of Legends patch 9.3 has arrived on the PBE. In comparison to the League of Legends patch 9.2 notes, the changes on offer this time around are pretty small, fitting into Riot’s schedule of following major patches up with smaller patches intended to focus primarily on individual champion balance.
There are a handful of balance changes in this patch. A very tiny nerf to Camille is matched by a healthy buff to Irelia, but the biggest changes are to Vi. The Piltover Enforcer sees changes to all of her abilities, with a particular buff to her passive – its new synergy with Denting Blows should make early game jungling a little easier. Elsewhere, Assault and Battery is now a little more disruptive for nearby enemies.
At this point in the PBE cycle, there are no skins on show, which is pretty surprising. Given that I’ve never covered a patch that didn’t include at least a couple of cosmetics, I imagine they’ll show up at some point soon, so check back over the next couple of weeks for more information.

Every League of Legends patch comes with its own Login Theme. They’re all fairly excellent, and patch 9.3’s is no exception. It shows off new champion Sylas in last patch’s screen celebrating the 2019 season.
That’s all we’ve got for League of Legends patch 9.3, but to keep up with the changes at the start of the new ranked season, take a look at the League of Legends patch 9.2 notes. We’ll see you again for patch 9.4 in the very near future.
