Like with many massively multiplayer online games, such as League of Legends, Dota, Rocket League etc., the game’s developers need a way to make ongoing adjustments and improvements to the game as the year progresses.

Sometimes, there may be a certain character or a weapon that has developed to be too overpowered and has become unhealthy for the game; in this case, a hotfix is usually required to stabilize the game and make it fair.

Developers make these improvements to their games via patch updates. By definition, a patch update is a set of changes to a computer program or its supporting data designed to update, fix, or improve it. This includes fixing security vulnerabilities and other bugs, with such patches usually being bug fixes.

This will usually have an impact on the actual game itself that is played by members of the community, but the work required for patch updates is technical and almost always related to some sort of programming. That is why it is essential that video game developers have an excellent team of professionals on deck.

As many of us should know, when it comes to League, patch updates could be like Christmas or they could be your worst nightmare. Sometimes, you may be lucky enough to receive your favorite champion being upgraded or “buffed” after a patch update or vice-versa, and your main champion may be subject to “nerfs” or suppressed to be not as strong.

Sometimes patch updates wave the banners of arrival for some of the season’s most exciting and jam-packed events, complete with missions to be completed, bonus loot to be won as well as the launching of arguably the most popular in-game accessory: skins.

Regardless of whatever makes you tick, patch updates are essential for games like LoL as they ensure to keep the game fresh, maintaining its attraction and novelty so that players stick around for years to come, as opposed to leaving to indulge in something else.

After all, this is the main objective for video game developers who are constantly striving to build a functioning ecosystem and community/network of players to keep their game in the loop of relevancy, whilst others may come and go, eventually dying out due to lack of interest from players.


So, without further ado, here is the full patch schedule for 2021, from Patch 11.1 on January 6 to Patch 11.24 on December 8. The dates can change at any time for any number of reasons, but Riot will generally stick to this path.
