Patch 8.8 Notes

Patch 8.8 Notes
Greetings, Summoners, Welcome to patch 8.8! As we move towards the middle of the season, the next few months will be jam-packed with a bunch of events (MSI, the launch of Clash, and start of the summer split to name a few). This puts a lot of pressure on specific patches, so "big patch, small patch" is gonna look like "medium patch, medium patch" f...

Patch 8.7 Notes

Patch 8.7 Updates
Greetings, Summoners, Welcome to patch 8.7, the one where we nerf Irelia . Sorry, I'm being told that's update Irelia. Everyone's favorite Blade Dancer is hitting the Rift with a new model and kit. We're also following up on the Duskblade changes from last patch, visiting the assassins who were affected more—or lessâ€&...

Patch 8.6 Notes

Patch 8.6 Notes
Greetings, Summoners, Welcome to patch 8.6, the next big patch in our little patch, big patch cycle. This time around, we're taking a look at Duskblade and how it affects its core users. We think it brings too much power, but we wanted to make sure we gave those champions additional power if we're stripping some from Duskblade. Then, we're introduc...

Patch 8.5 Notes

Patch 8.5 Updates
Greetings, Summoners, Welcome to patch 8.5, the one that's the "small patch" to 8.4's "big patch". This patch is actually a large download, because we're updating some of our in-game assets. More on that here! But back to gameplay! This patch we're taking a look at professional outliers, some of whom have been problem children for awhile now (Azir,...

Patch 8.4 Notes

Patch 8.4 Notes
Greetings, Summoners, Welcome to patch 8.4, the one that's pretty huge. No, really. We've changed our patch cycle to alternate between larger game updates and shorter balance tweaks. This is probably our first true "big patch," so it's structured differently than normal. First, we're looking into mage itemization, and there's been a minor overhaul ...

Patch 8.3 Notes

Patch 8.3 Update
Greetings, Summoners, Welcome to patch 8.3, the one where Swain gets a shiny, updated kit. A few champions have been standing out not necessarily because they're the strongest champions, but because they're the most generalist, so we're sharpening their intended weaknesses to give opponents more deliberate counterplay. Then there's our iconic basic...

Patch 8.2 Notes

Patch 8.2 Notes
Greetings, Summoners, Welcome to 8.2, the one where we make a pretty big systemic change. For the history of LoL, minions have rushed to defend their allies against any champion who hit them with a basic attack, but those same minions merely watched on as Pantheon chucked spears or Cassiopeia sank Twin Fang after Twin Fang into you. After this patc...

Patch 8.1 Notes

Patch 8.1 Notes
Greetings, Summoners, It's the first patch of the new season, and that means it's our last chance to make changes before the season starts! We already had an extra patch ( 7.24b ) to round out the preseason leading into the holiday break, so this patch is a good deal smaller than usual. The Ranked ladder resets with this patch, so we’ll see you out...

Patch 7.24b Notes

Patch 7.24b Notes
Happy Snowdown, summoners! We've mentioned a few times that there'd be one more set of balance changes before the end of the year. Well...here it is! "7.24b—the b is for balance!" Unlike standard patches, this one doesn't require a download, so if you're reading these notes within six-ish hours of publication, watch for a ticker to confirm we're li...

Patch 7.24 Notes

Patch 7.24 Notes
Greetings Summoners, It's the final (sort of) patch of the preseason and that means a lot of tweaks based on our first round of data. The game always changes a decent amount this time of year, so we're looking to make sure that—heading into next season—most champions at least feel the same, and some might even have the potential to do more. A numbe...
