League of Legends fans, are you ready for 2020?
Next year will mark one of the biggest years for League in terms of changes since the developers will be introducing entirely new adjustments to Summoner’s Rift, new champions, and new items. But when will these new changes be heading to the live servers?
In 2019, Riot Games used a two-week patch schedule that spaced out updates so there would be two updates every month. Each patch was scheduled for either a Tuesday or Thursday.
Next year, the developers will be aiming for a similar system. Each month should get two updates, two weeks apart. The only difference is that updates will be going out on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Here are all the dates for next year’s League patch schedule:
