LoL Patch 12.17 COUNTDOWN: Release Time, Date, Patch Notes & Latest News - King Viego

The next update for League of Legends Season 12 is nearly here in LoL 12.17.

This brand-new patch is set to hit live servers this week and although it's not as big as some of its predecessors, it's still bringing some possibly meta-altering changes. These include a round of changes and updates to Maokai, Hecarim, and a shift in the mid-lane with adjustments to various staple champions of mid.

That being said, here's what's in store for LoL 12.17 as we count down to its release time.

LoL 12.17 Skins

Taking part in this LoL 12.17 update are four brand-new skins: a new skin line and a new standalone skin.

The new skin line, dubbed Zenith Games, has Blitzcrank, Lee Sin, and Jayce rock wear apt for a futuristic sports environment both Blitzcrank and Lee Sin can be seen in dark-colored clothing that's topped off with neon accents and hues giving them some pop to contrast. On the other hand, Jayce seems to be the opposite, favoring the lighter-colored clothing while still keeping the colored accents.
