Here are the LoL Patch 14.1 B patch notes

A "hotfix patch" is coming soon.

The 2024 League of Legends season officially started a couple of days ago, but Riot Games is already introducing a hotfix update in the form of Patch 14.1 B.

Season 14 of League began on Wednesday, Jan. 10 with the launch of Patch 14.1. The devs ushered in a new era for the MOBA by making massive tweaks to the Summoner’s Rift map, Baron and Rift Herald updates, and a plethora of item changes.

Shortly after the release of the latest update, League’s lead gameplay designer Matt “Riot Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison shared on Jan. 11 that the team is “pretty happy with how the patch has landed.” But the devs are still slated to drop a B-patch soon that “isn’t intended to fix everything that is weak or strong, but mainly tackle the big outliers.”

Here’s what we know so far about League Patch 14.1 B.

When will League Patch 14.1 B go live?

Phroxzon said the hotfix update is set to drop roughly 18 hours after he shared the post on Twitter/X on Jan. 11. Thus, League Patch 14.1 B should go live around 4pm CT on Jan. 12.

A detailed look at the changes arrived just as the patch went live. You’ll find the important changes for champions, items, and more below.

    • “Stormsurge was intended to fill in a gap in the system for burst-oriented AP champions, but is both overperforming on those champions and also generically powerful for most AP champions across the board. With that said, we’re lowering the base damage and the AP ratio on the proc should reduce the most frustrating aspects of the item.”
