Riot confirms League of Legends Patch 12.12b coming this week
Patch 12.13 will also be delayed.
Riot’s lead designer for game balance, Matt Leung-Harrison, confirmed that League of Legends will get a 12.12b update this week. The micropatch is set to go live on Thursday, June 30, and targets champions that were given too much power or hit too hard in last week’s Patch 12.12. The champions include Katarina, Bel’Veth, and Seraphine.
Patch 12.12b will bring buffs to Caitlyn, Katarina, Leona, and Shaco. The Sinister Blade and the Demon Jester received numerous adjustments in Patch 12.12, nerfing base stats and passive bonuses while increasing the damage on a few skills. Riot didn’t get the expected results, hitting these champs harder than intended, so the devs will make further adjustments this week. No specific details were given about any of the buffs yet.
