League of Legends Patch 10.25 has just been released this week, bringing a huge list of buffs, nerfs, and adjustments that have made the last Patch of the year the biggest since the new Items and the new Item Shop were officially released alongside Patch 10.23.
In case you don’t remember, the recently launched last version of the MOBA brought very good news for the ADCs, a role that had been very weakened lately… but it looks like not everyone was happy with the update.
That is probably why Mark Yetter, Lead Gameplay Designer for League of Legends has announced that Patch 10.25 is the last patch of the year, but not the last update.
With 10.25 being the last patch of the year, we will be aiming for a small hotfix balance patch next week to get in a few more improvements before the winter holidays.

As you can see on his Tweet above, Riot Games is preparing a hotfix so we don’t have to spend the whole month of December (and most probably the first days of 2021) with the same metagame, since the developers of the game are going on holidays soon.
The update will hit the live servers next week. We should not expect very big changes, perhaps some adjustments and bugfixes.
In any case, Riot Games is now thinking about the new year, and little by little we are starting to know some of the new stuff that the first Patch of 2021 will bring, such as new skins for Kled, Kalista, Xin Zhao, Gragas, and Quinn from the Marauder and Warden collection:
As for balance changes, we still have no official information about what the new year will bring, but we can for sure expect more adjustments on items and champions such as Graves, who is still a nightmare to face in the jungle.
We could expect Patch 11.1 to be announced the upcoming January 6th, but Riot Games hasn’t confirmed anything. In any case, stay tuned with us to know all the details about the following updates!
