League of Legends gamers are eagerly waiting for the release of LoL Patch 14.10.

A patch is a modification to the game files of League of Legends. Every patch usually comprises a new game content - latest or remade items, skins and champions. 

It can also contain balance changes referring to changes made to even out the power balance between champions. A latest patch can also be rolled out with bug fixtures to rectify unusual behaviour in the game.

League of Legends’ latest patch, Patch 14.9 was rolled out on May 1 as 2024 enters its mid part. 

These LoL Patch 14.9 include Riot Games’  Vanguard anti-cheat software, the standout feature in the latest patch.

The software offers Riot a considerable chance at detecting cheaters. LoL Patch 14.9 also includes almost 30 changes across two dozen chosen champions and six items, including Janna, Bel’Veth, Seraphine, Master Yi, and Pyke. 

While the latest patch has been hugely successful, players are looking forward to LoL Patch 14.10.
