League of Legends (LoL) 12.9 patch update & notes release date
League of Legends Patch 12.8 update will be live on the 27th of April, as announced by the devs at Riot Games. So, this means any information about patch 12.9 is far from being disclosed. Currently, we don’t have any information regarding the release date of Patch 12.9 but we can make a fair prediction on when it will most likely drop. Analyzing the release date of the previous patch updates, it is pretty obvious that patch 12.9 update will most likely release in May as there is a mere gap of 15 days between each patch update in League of Legends. As patch 12.8 is set to release on 27 April, the next patch is expected to release on 11-12 May. However, do note that this is only speculation from our end.
