The final patch for 2023 and League of Legends Season 13 are out on live servers, so all eyes are turning towards Season 14 and the year ahead. Lots of the new content is planned, including item overhauls and changes to how the ranked season works, with three new splits. 

Like all online competitive games, game updates and patch notes are vital to the game ecosystem to ensure a fair and balanced gameplay experience while keeping players up-to-date with new changes.

As such, the Riot Games team works tirelessly to periodically release new League of Legends patches every two weeks to make adjustments wherever needed. These patches often include bug fixes, game improvements, balance changes, and new content like new champions or skins.

Below, you'll find Riot Games' complete planned patch schedule for League of Legends in 2024, including all the patch dates.

What Time Do Patch Notes Release?

There's no specific fixed time schedule for when patches hit live servers. However, according to each major League of Legends reservers' time zones, we have a general idea of when each version patch release date and time.

  • 5 AM GMT (EU West)
  • 3 AM CET (EU North East)
  • 8 AM KST (Korea)
  • 3 PM CT (NA)

While the patches are being released, all matchmaking and competitive queues will be disabled for around three hours as Riot Games and the balance teamwork to smooth out any last-minute wrinkles.

LoL Patch Schedule for Season 14

The first patch of League of Legends Season 14 will hit Summoner's Rift on January 10 with the launch of Season 14. Like Season 13, Riot Games has revealed that there will be 24 patches in 2024, with at least two a month.

How Will Ranked Work in Season 14? 

Changing things up, Riot Games has switched up the ranked season for 2024. Rather than doing the "single competitive season" per year format, they've employed previously, there will now be three splits per season instead. 

This change aims to accommodate both new and returning players so they don't feel too out of touch with the ever-changing competitive environment of League of Legends ranked play. 

  • Split 1: January 9 - May 2024 
  • Split 2: May - September
  • Split 3: September - January 2025 

This new change also gives a rough start date for Season 15, likely the end of January or even the start of February. 

Final Thoughts

That was Riot Games' official LoL patch schedule for 2024 and Season 14. Remember that before any patch goes live on official servers, you can test the upcoming new features on the Public Beta Environment (PBE), including new skins and balance changes. Through the PBE, the Riot Games balance team can work out any kinks before making them go live.
