Update: Patch 7.18’s maintenance has now been scheduled to start at 6 a.m. ET and will last approximately three hours. There has been no update on what the bug was, but it seems we’re back to our normal schedule.
Patch 7.18 was originally scheduled to launch Wednesday morning, as patches usually do, but a notice from Riot Games says that the patch will be delayed until an unknown time.
There seems to be a large bug in the patch that needs to be fixed. There is no notice on what the bug or problem is or when the update is going to be moved to.
The game itself is still online and this doesn’t affect anything that’s on live servers right now. This just means that we’ll be playing on Patch 7.17 for a little bit longer than anticipated.
Riot will be updating their game status page with more information, but as you wait for Patch 7.18, you can catch yourself up on our condensed patch notes here. There’s a lot of updates to read up on, so maybe this is a blessing in disguise.
This article will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
