League of Legends Update 12.2: Release Date, Patch Notes, Champions, Items, Bug Fixes and Everything We Know So Far

League of Legends

League of Legends update 12.2 has arrived and we have all of the details that you’ll need to know regarding this upcoming patch.

This is the second in-game adaptation that Riot Games will be making in 2022 and follows just two weeks following the release of 12.1, which provided only a minor update in comparison to previous versions.

Champions such as Diana and Gangplank were the emphasis of the buffs that took place last time out, with Sona and Rek’Sai getting nerfed. Along with this, Teleport was adjusted and several system nerfs also took place.

With this in mind, it will be interesting to see how significant update 12.2 is when it arrives, and what changes Riot will have made.
