League of Legends patch 12.12 looks to be applying a lot of nerfs and buffs to characters after the recent durability update, specifically altering heals and shields, along with burst mechanics. Due to how long League of Legends has been running at this point, Riot Games have to continuously tweak the meta and how different champions work, especially when new characters are introduced or shop items are changed. So for a quick look at the latest League of Legends patch 12.12, read on. 

League Of Legends Patch 12.12 Release Date 

Patch 12.12 is set to go live the same day as of writing this, June 22. We also know the exact timing of the update, which should allow players to begin downloading it from 11pm BST (3am PST/6am EST). Once the patch starts to deploy, players won't be able to queue for a few hours.
