League of Legends minion XP bug being fixed by Riot Games today

League of Legends players noticed a game bug last week that offers more XP for blue minions, giving one side a potential advantage in battle. Developer Riot Games has now pledged to fix the issue today.

PCGamesN reports that the bug has seen slain blue minions awarding two more XP than the purple variety which, while still a small amount, could give players an increased build-up of experience over time.

in a blog, Riot Games wrote, “We understand that this problem is a potentially significant issue. When we attempted a solution on Wednesday, additional complications arose. Currently we have a confirmed fix for the bug, but given that server stability is of high importance to us, deploying it over the weekend just isn’t viable.”

So instead, Riot will endeavour to launch the fix “as soon as possible” today and added, “Thank you for your patience, summoners, and we apologize for the inconvenience.”

We’ll update again once it goes live.
