There are three types of updates to live that are used:

  • Game Updates come on a 2-week cadence, so every second week you should expect a major game update with new features, gameplay changes, items and bug fixes.
  • Patches come in between Game Updates, they typically don't introduce new gameplay or features, but will usually contain bug fixes, balance changes, and new items. They won't always have one each week, these come as needed.
  • Hotfixes can come any day, and they're based on an urgent need to change a game balance issue or bug.

In general they try to release Game Updates and Patches early on Wednesday mornings (PST), but they sometimes need to hold back the updates for more QA time when issues are found.
