Patch 13.13 within TFT Set Nine Runeterra Reforged was scheduled to run for three weeks without a B-patch. A variety of bugs getting abused prompted the team to ship a 13.13 C-patch on July 10, dealing with the exploitive glitches while also dropping a few balance changes. Changes applied to the PBE servers for the upcoming Patch 13.14 initially focused on Set Nine Augments, especially Legends Augments
