Legends of Runeterra v1.10 patch nerfs Ezreal as cross-shard friend challenge debuts

Legends of Runeterra fans have received plenty of new content over the past few weeks with the release of the Call of the Mountain set of cards, which is the latest stop in Riot's well-detailed roadmap for the free-to-play card game.

As such, the first update for the game since the release of the set has brought a new batch of balance changes, looking to address potential issues or overpowered strategies that might've been born with more cards to experiment with.

While patch v1.10 does tune certain cards, it isn't a massive overhaul, so if you already have a predefined strategy, rest assured it most likely still works in the current version of the game.

Perhaps the most sought after implementation for months is the ability to cross-shard challenge friends. Well, after months of delays, it's finally here! 

For those unaware, what the cross-shard challenge means is that players will now be able to play against friends regarding of the region they're logged in (EU, NA, Asia, or SEA).

Now, let's jump right into the patch notes.
