WHY THE LONG PATCH?
  • Patch 12.5 will be live for four weeks (instead of the usual two) as all of us at Riot connect, reflect, and discuss our company-wide goals. Look, I know four weeks is a long time for a TFT patch, but we’ve got a plan to make 12.5 as healthy and stable as possible during this time.
  • You can read our detailed plan for ensuring a quality patch 12.5 here, where we’ll outline our goals for the patch and the precautions we’re taking/have already taken with its deployment.
