Riot Games’ account for the game League of Legends also tweeted about the attack, letting players know that patches might be late because of it.
Heads up, players. This may impact our delivery date for Patch 13.2. The League team is working to stretch the limits of what we can hotfix in order to deliver the majority of the planned and tested balance changes on time still. https://t.co/DJ8qAKSdQi
