League of Legends Patch Notes Preview Next 2 Updates

Riot Games recently announced that League of Legends would soon receive a micropatch to smooth out some outliers while players wait for the next major update to drop amid an infrequent three-week patch cycle. After naming champions, items, and more League systems that would be buffed, nerfed, or otherwise changed this week, Riot Games followed up that preview with a more detailed list of planned changes to not just one but the update, but both.

Matt “Riot Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison, the lead game balance designer on the Summoner’s Rift team, has shared both the initial patch notes and the more detailed preview of the updates that are coming. was released on Wednesday. Since these are changes for two different updates, there’s a lot to look at in the articles below with more possibly coming in patch 12.13 given that it will take a bit more time before this one is published.

Patch 12.12b, the micropatch released on Thursday, is shown in yellow in both patch notes previews while the contents of patch 12.13 can be seen in white. As mentioned earlier, the micropatch content is geared more towards particularly weak or strong champions at the moment who shouldn’t be left unchecked until the next mainline update in July.

Those playing Sivir and Gwen will also want to take note of the major patch notes changes in the two additional images shared by Riot Phroxzon. Gwen’s changes are still not to be ignored, but Sivir’s are more in-depth and akin to some of the mini-champion updates others like Olaf, Taliyah, and Swain have gotten in the past. Sivir’s update affects every part of her kit, from her passive to her ultimate, with different effects added or removed depending on what ability you’re looking for, so expect to see plenty of Sivir and Gwen players arrive each once patch 12.13 drops.

of the league Micropatch 12.12b is scheduled for Thursday, so look for that download when it goes live tomorrow.
