With the arrival of the 2023 Mid-Season Invitational update, Nidalee, Lillia, Poppy, Ezreal, and support playmaker Alistair will all receive a ton of League of Legends Patch note 13.8 enhancements.
Before MSI 2023 begins on May 2, Riot Games‘ programmers are aiming to entice a few more junglers into Season 13’s meta, but they don’t want to go overboard. This includes Nidalee, Lillia, Poppy, and Kha’zix, who all top the list of buffs released by balance boss Riot Phroxzon in advance of the launch of League of Legends Patch Note 13.8.
A few other characters, including as Rakan, Jarvan IV, the revamped Aurelion Sol, and the steadfast top laner Malphite, are also being sent the opposite way ahead of MSI.
League collectors won’t be disappointed with the pro-play patch either, as new Dawnbringer and Inkshadow skins will be made available during the April update cycle. Yasuo and Yone’s sibling, as well as Shuriman opponents Nasus and Renekton, are among the fortunate champions who will receive these new cosmetics.
League of Legends Early Patch Notes 13.8
According to Riot’s patch schedule, the next update of 2023 will be released on Wednesday, April 19. The patch will roll out as normal throughout the day, beginning in Australia at about 10 a.m. (AEST). The important patch rollout timeframes for several of the main League servers are listed below:
- 3am PT (NA)
- 5am GMT (EU West)
- 3am CET (EU North East)
- 8am KR (Korea)
Once the patch starts, there will be many hours of outage. Three hours prior to the update’s formal deployment and go-live, matchmaking and competitive queues will be turned off on all League servers.
What new features are in League of Legends Patch 13.8?
The Riot balancing team emphasizes adding more champions to the meta rather than dragging too many out until MSI 2023 matchups start, therefore this most recent League patch has an uneven distribution of boosts.
Nidalee, Lillia, Kha’zix, and Poppy are just a few of the League champions that will receive abilities, stats, or mechanic upgrades in the upcoming April update. Only Rakan, Jarvan IV, Malphite, and Aurelion Sol are getting nerfed in comparison.
