Want to know the LoL patch schedule for season 13? Here are all the dates for the planned updates by Riot Games in 2023.
LoL Patch Schedule – All dates and updates for 2023
League of Legends is notoriously known for its consistent updates throughout all season. With such an incredible amount of champions available to play, having a balanced game is an incredibly tough task to do. That’s why the developers deliver consistent patch updates every few weeks (usually two).
These updates are usually done to keep the game refreshing and avoid having repetitive metas where the strongest champions are being constantly played. At the beginning of every season, Riot publishes its planned patch schedule for LoL that covers the entire year.
While there are times when things do not go as planned, like when Riot suffered a social engineering attack, most of the time the balance team is quite punctual with the update releases.
For season 13, Riot announced a total of 24 patch updates with the first patch kicking off in January and the final patch in December. Let’s see when each individual patch will be released this year.

At what time do League of Legends patches go live?
There isn’t a fixed time schedule for the League of Legends patches, but they are typically done overnight when there is the lowest amount of active players. Depending on region to region, the maintenance for the patches starts at different times:
- EUW – 5 am CET (4 am GMT)
- EUNE – 3 am CET
- NA – 3 am PT (12 pm CET)
The Oceanic region (OCE) is usually the first to receive the update due to time zones, followed by Korea (and China), Europe, and then North America.
The maintenance time usually lasts around 3 hours. Once the patch notes are added, players will be able to head back into Summoners’ Rift by downloading the new patch.
