Speculations include that the shutting down of servers may be linked to the upcoming minor update for the League of Legends. Patch 10.22 will be released on the North American region by October 28, more than a week from now. This update is a minor patch for the League, as part of the routine improvements and bug fixes of the game. According to Riot's Server Status website, there are no recent issues in the developer's servers that we reported or detected by the systems. However, when going down on more specific games, toggling League of Legends will show "Account Transfers Disabled," with Riot fixing up the problems in the game. This notification and report were issued last September 15 but is still an on-going case for Riot Games. Patch 10.22's connection may be a hint that League of Legends is preparing its servers for the rework of certain bug fixes and champions such as Zed, LeBlanc, Nasus, and more.

Patch 10.22-Champion Adjustments

According to Riot employee, Mark Yetter (@MarkYetter), the League is focusing on major buffs and nerfs for the game's favorite champions. The Riot Games employee is also a popular insider for all news about League of Legends. Apart from bug fixes, the League is seeing major champion adjustments for fan favorites such as Annie, Ashe, and Jinx. Patch 10.22 will be big for all ranged gamers, as mentioned by Yetter.
