With The League of Legends 2015 World Championship series done and dusted, Riot have free reign over their game once more, and they’re prepping for 2016. Sure, they’ve done some minor changes over the past few weeks already with the likes of patch 5.19 through to 5.21, but 5.22 is now here, and it’s bringing with it a host of preseason changes to Summoner’s Rift.
Now that the 2015 World Championship has concluded, Riot have gone ahead and teased what’s in store for Summoner’s Rift next year in the 2016 Season Update for League of Legends. Here's what to expect...

One of the more popular Champion picks at this year's League of Legends World Championships has now been removed from the Champion pick and ban pool. Gragas experienced a bug during the Fnatic vs. EDG game on Saturday and has now been removed.

The rest of us meanwhile, are moving on with life. We received patch 5.19 two weeks ago, and now, we’re getting even more balance to Summoner’s Rift with patch 5.20
