LOL 11.13 Update - The new patch for League of Legends is set to drop this Wednesday. (June 23) and should also bring with it the next PTR 11.14 Update for the game. Stay tuned for lots of news this week!

League of Legends Patch 11.13 is the next big update to arrive in LoL, following on shortly after the successful launch of LoL Patch 11.12 earlier this week on the live servers.

But the introduction of Patch 11.12 has also meant that a new update was dropped onto the games PBE (Public Beta Environment). The new update is of course Patch 11.13 and with that now live we can also take a look to see what sort of changes are coming to the game in the weeks ahead.

You'll find the full overview further down, but let's give you a quick recap. Firstly, there's a small rework for The River King, Tahm Kench. A few tweaks to his stats and abilities should make for some interesting overhaul to the insatiable appetite of this particular demon.

There's also plenty of changes, but aside from one small nerf to Kindred, it's mainly focussed on Item and Rune changes.

As per past updates, there's also a new 'Project' skin set to be introduced.

Keep reading and we'll take you through all the League of Legends 11.13 changes, blow by blow.

When is LoL 11.13 Patch Release Date?

We thankfully have a pretty exhaustive League of Legends 2021 Patch Schedule detailing precisely when the next update is coming. So if you want to make a calendar notice for every update in the next few months, go ahead.

In the more immediate future, we're expecting LoL Patch 11.13 to go live on Wednesday, June 23, 2021.

We're still a few weeks from release, but if it's anything like past updates, it will likely roll out at the following times (but this isn't confirmed):

  • 3 am PT(NA servers)
  • 5 am GMT (EUW servers)
  • 3 am CET (EUNE servers)

When Is The LoL 11.13 Server Downtime?

Although we know League of Legends patch 11.13 will be released on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, it's a little too early for any server maintenance times to have been confirmed by Riot Games.

Typically with new updates we see maintenance begin at 3am PT for NA servers, 5 am UK time for EUW servers, and 3 am CET for EUNE servers. The server downtime required to roll out these new updates will usually last three hours, but as with any game, this can always be subject to change.

As soon as we know more we'll be sure to update this page with official info, although that's likely to be much closer to launch.
