Riot has announced that it is freezing all “non-essential updates” until January in Europe to ensure server stability over the holiday season.

Over the past month the game has experienced serious latency issues in EUW and EUNE, and the developer is determined to ensure that these issues do not occur over Christmas. The developer added that “important fixes and stability works” will be implemented if required during this period.

According to European managing director Paul Breslin, Riot also plans to roll out RiotDirect on its Frankfurt datacenter to assist with lag issues. RiotDirect allows the developer to switch between four different providers if bandwidth or latency issues occur.

“Longer term, the Amsterdam datacenter build is still on track for the end of March. Servers and other tech hardware are arriving daily and will continue to do so over the holidays,” Breslin wrote. “Once all the equipment is on site and prepped, a big team of Rioters will start installation. This is a huge and complicated build and the team will be working hard over the holiday break to ensure we get Amsterdam live as soon as possible for you.”

League of LegendsSnowdown Showdown event is now live until January 2, allowing for 1v1 and 2v2 duels on the single-lane Howling Abyss map.
