Patch 4.2.0 Notes

Welcome to the first Variety Patch of 2023! For this Variety Patch, we wanted to help each region really get back to its roots. These new cards help exemplify what a region does well by reinforcing some of their strategies that need the support. We’ve got some fun new cards in store for you; check out the details below:

Huge shoutout to all of the support and participation we’ve seen in our Beta Season. It’s been super-exciting, and
we’ve seen a lot of fun Rumble homebrew decks as well as great participation in the Runeterra Open. Here are some
adjustments we’re making:

  • Starting March 10, Daily Rumbles will now run from 10:00 AM Server Time → 2:00

    • We got a lot of feedback that the current time window was difficult for some players to get their runs
      in, so we’ve extended the window to be 6 hours longer.
  • The next Runeterra Open will run from March 18, 8:00 AM Server Time → March 20, 2:00

    • Like the Daily Rumbles, we’re providing a wider time frame to get your Runeterra Open matches in, We’re
      opening them 2 hours earlier for this next Open.
  • The Daily Rumble Schedule has been updated.
    • Please be sure to check the in-game Gauntlet Schedule for the most up-to-date information.
  • The Champions Unlimited (March 20th → March 26th) and 30 HP Nexus (March 26 →
    March 30th) formats will be available for 325 shards to round-out the end of the season!

    • We wanted to show appreciation for your participation in the Beta Season, so we slightly reduced the
      price for the final two Rumbles of the Beta Season.
  • Free Build – We encountered an unforeseen issue with this mode and are still at work getting it fixed. We wanted
    to update everybody and be transparent that we won’t be running the Free Build format for a while. Please check
    out and enjoy the other upcoming new formats we have on the way!

We’ve been collecting all of your feedback and will release a more robust article once we move out of Beta Season.

New Daily Rumble Formats

As a reminder, each format uses the Standard Deckbuilding Rules as a base,
with a fun twist!

  • Standard Deckbuilding Rules
    • 2 Regions
    • 40 Cards
    • 6 Champions

We have two new formats for this cycle of Daily Rumbles! Singleton and 30 HP Nexus.

  • Standard 30 HP Nexus
    • Standard Deckbuilding Rules
    • Best of 1
    • Nexus Health Starts at 30
  • Singleton
    • Special Deckbuilding Rules
      • You may only put 1 copy of each card into your deck while deckbuilding
      • 2 Regions
      • 40 Cards
    • Best of 1

Designer’s Note: Singleton is also going to be the format for the Runeterra Open. We wanted to experiment and try
a different format for the last Runeterra Open of the Beta Season. Once we’re out of Beta you can expect the
following Runeterra Opens to be the most competitive formats we have.

Editor’s Note: Rubin,
don’t steal my job. Notes are
my thing.
