League of Legends patch 9.15 change list

Project time, baby!

PROJECT: Jinx blasts away some bad guy robots while posing dramatically. Riot Games

The latest League of Legends patch introduces a handful of changes, including tweaks to Teamfight Tactics, as well as the new Project skins.

Galio has gotten some buffs after getting kneecapped in the last patch, but most other champions on today’s list are getting minor tweaks here or there.

The Project skins for Jinx, Pyke, Irelia, Akali, and Warwick drop with this patch, presumably alongside a Project-themed event.

The legacy cursor is also getting fully retired, with the option to toggle between the new and old one vanishing. Rest in peace, weird glove mitten thing. You might be missed.

All in all, it’s a pretty small patch for League of Legends, but make sure you’re up to date on all these changes before you jump in to ranked.

For full notes, check out Riot’s version, and for a tl;dr, check out our usual five things to know. If you’re looking for Teamfight Tactics patch notes, we have those in a separate post.
