League Devs Finally Fixing Life-and-Death Azir Bug That Affected Faker at Worlds 2022
Yet if Patch 13.1 hasn’t even fully integrated, a new set of changes that have appeared on the League of Legends subreddit may already be in store for us. Azir’s bug fix easily stands out in the group of modifications, even though the majority of them pertain to quality-of-life enhancements, which lends credence to the notion that the champion will experience a significant increase in victory rates.
According to datamined changes shared on League’s subreddit on Jan. 10, Azir is getting a huge bug fix that will heavily influence his day-to-day interactions and might even have an impact on his win rate.
Normally, Azir’s ultimate, Emperor’s Divide wouldn’t knock the enemies up nor deal damage to them if the caster died during the casting animation and would still go on cooldown.
After this latest bug fix, Azir’s ultimate spell, including its total damage and the knock-up, will go through, no matter if the champion dies mid-casting animation or not. This will, naturally, increase Azir’s total damage output and allow the champion to help his team out even when dead.
Since this is a bug that’s been troubling Azir mains for a while now and even Faker himself had this bug occur to him at Worlds 2023, we might actually see Azir’s win rate rise with Riot Games needing to tweak the champion’s numbers a little. Still, it’s nice to see Riot is finally giving Azir some much-needed love after being a pick-or-ban champion in pro play for years now.
