League of Legends 11.2 Patch Notes: Release Date, Update Time And Champions Changes For LoL

What's next in LoL?

League of Legends update 11.2 arrives next week and will be the only other patch this month.

Update 11.1 kicked off the new year and new season by adjusting over 100 champions!

While we expect 11.2 to have some significance to the game and meta, it's unlikely to be as influential as the last patch.

Here are patch notes for League of Legends update 11.2.

Viego, The Ruined King, is coming next to the Rift.

Viago is a strong Jungler in-game and the Ruined King in the overarching story of Runeterra.

Bring Ruination to the world with Viego, the Ruined King. Learn more about his mist-commanding, death-dominating abilities below.

It's not been confirmed if Viego is coming in the next update and it seems too soon after the release of Rell.

There are at least 5 new champions to be released this year and it seems a bit too soon to release one.
