This latest patch will be pretty short and sweet. Riot will not make any major changes during this patch because this will be the patch that’ll be played at the 2018 World Championship.  So they can’t make any major changes during this time because riot doesn’t want to mess with the meta of the game like we have experienced in previous patches.  like always we don’t know when this patch will be released or if these will be the final changes but its expected this patch will be released September 26th.  As a reminder, last time James Hong of Inven Global, said that the teams to look out for will be the ones from China.  I am a fan of SKT T1, which this particular team has won the 2015 and 2016 championships, did not qualify for this years tournament.   The 2018 World Championship will be from: October 1, 2018- November 3, 2018 and we can expect the following 24 teams from around the world.
