Zeri Receives More Nerfs in Preview for League’s Patch 12.4

After being claimed as one of the most overpowered champions in League of Legends, Zeri appears on Riot's nerf list again, receiving substantial nerfs to her abilities in the game's upcoming patch, 12.4.
Designer on the Summoner's Rift team, Riot Developer 'Phlox' has detailed the nerfs for the dominant marksman that will push the new champion to a balanced spot, improving on its current state.

To remove the support items from their current favored spot in the meta, players will receive 50% less objective bounty gold on having two or more support items in the team. On the other hand, Amumu ends up on Riot’s buff list, receiving a much-needed buff that increases the champion’s E Damage ratio from 2/4/6/8/10 to 5/7/9/11/13.

Rumble and Neeko are the two mid-lane champions to receive buffs, with Rumble receiving an increase to his armor, and Neeko’s smaller hitbox and reduced W ability cooldown will put the champion back to a player preferred spot in the meta. Riot Games are also looking to address the current issue with Smite support top-laners, with other ‘larger changes’ slated for the upcoming update, not yet mentioned in the preview.

League fans wanting to try out the new adjustments to Zeri's kit and the rest of the changes can experience it on PBE. Patch 12.4 is tentatively scheduled to hit live servers on February 16, according to the official patch schedule released by Riot.
