League of Legends patch 9.13 change list

Qiyana, Arcade skins, and a new game mode are all coming!

Riot Games

Patch 9.13 is filled to the brim with content, some of which might seem overshadowed by the big addition in this patch: Teamfight Tactics.

Qiyana, League’s newest assassin, is being added in this patch, along with her release skin, Battle Boss. Her skin also ties in with this year’s Arcade event, as she’s matching with Battle Boss Yasuo. Arcade Caitlyn and Kai’Sa are also being added to the game, as the protagonists in this year’s Arcade story.

Teamfight Tactics will also be rolling out by region, with the mission and hub system launching later in the patch. Teamfight Tactics is the latest game mode to be added to League, potentially permanently. The game is an autobattler, taking inspiration from the Dota 2 mod, Auto Chess. It’s been hard to test out on the Pubic Beta Environment due to long login queues, so now is the time to play the game.

For the full patch notes, you can check out Riot’s post here or our tl;dr here.

Teamfight Tactics

Teamfight Tactics will be coming in 9.13 to players all over the world! Play against seven opponents in a free-for-all race to build a powerful team that fights on your behalf and be the last one standing.

As a reminder, the mode is still in beta! Players may experience bugs during their time in Teamfight Tactics, but we’d appreciate reports as well as general feedback on it. We’re here to build this new mode with you.

We’ll also be monitoring server health throughout its run in 9.13 and make note of potential balance changes based on what we see and hear from you.
