League of Legends Patch 5.1 Releasing in Preparation for the Ranked Season

By   /   Jan 15, 2015

League of Legends developer Riot Games is going to roll-out a new patch today. The patch (5.1) is being released in preparation for the ranked season.

Players should note that as part of the roll-out process, ranked queues are going to be disabled. In addition to this, servers will go down at 03.00 PST, according to the official website.

On 1/15/15, starting at 01:30 PST, ranked queues will be disabled in preparation for patch 5.1. At 03:00 PST, the servers will be shut down and all games currently in progress will end in a draw and stats will not be recorded. We estimate the battlegrounds will be unavailable for 3 hours.

It is important to know that patch 5.1 won’t actually start the new season. As announced before, the season will kick-off later this month on January 21.

Moreover, apart from ranked season, patch 5.1 is related with “jungle diversity” and “following up on the preseason.”

Some minor changes have been made to Evelyn, Elise, Hecarim and Nautilus. Furthermore, some new changes to Smite and gold upgrades are a part of this patch.

As for pre-season follow-up:

We’ve got a lot of followup to the 2015 preseason, including some significant power shifts for Baron Nashor, the addition of Base Gates and the Zz’Rot Portal, and some small trinket rebalancing to help out defending team vision.

So there you have it, that was patch 5.1 for you and if you wish to go into further details, follow the link here.

Will you be joining the battle starting January 21? Let us know of your plans in the comments.
