What changes in LoL Patch 13.23?

Tower Gold is changing

Riot wants to give some power back to the snowball game by granting more local gold to players who destroy towers. These changes only apply to interior and inhibitor towers, but provide a nice bonus for split-pushing top laners looking to advance.

K’Sante nerfs

K’Sante has been quite a problem for Riot’s balance team. The recent rework of the Shuriman tank caused the solo queue win rate to skyrocket, leading to massive community outrage. The developers are still trying to tone it down a bit so they can fit into the roster better.
