    LoL 11.18 brings 28 Champion buffs and nerfs ahead of Worlds


    The League of Legends World Championship is coming, and the massive LoL 11.18 update paves the way with a massive amount of buffs and nerfs - but that's not all!

    Here's everything you need to know about LoL 11.18 from its release time to its patch notes, new skins, and more.

    Update - 11.18 to be a 'pro-focused' update ahead of Worlds

    League of Legends lead game designer @JeevunSidhu has referred to Update 11.18 as a 'pro-focused' update to best prepare the game for the upcoming Worlds.


    These updates are fairly typical heading into a major championship and can often be made in accordance with pro player feedback. They will want the most optimum and balanced version of the game to be available during the event - and the 28 champion buffs and nerfs are the result.

    LoL 11.18 Release Date

    The League of Legends 11.18 update will arrive on Thursday, September 9th.


    We expect it will follow the same schedule as previous updates, bringing servers down from 6am EST / 11am BST to 9am EST / 2pm BST before going live with the new patch.

    Full Patch Notes Revealed

    The full LoL 11.18 patch notes have finally been revealed by Riot ahead of launch, and it's a massive one with 28 Champion buffs and nerfs combined!
