Legends of Runeterra update size

Riot Games occasionally releases minor updates for Legends of Runeterra – see the patch notes for details. If you’re worried an update could push you over your data limit, turn off auto-updates in your game settings and only update when you have extra data.

Legends of Runeterra data use

Legends of Runeterra uses about 15 to 20 MB of data per hour, which is less than other online games. While data use is relatively consistent from player to player because there’s no chat and no massively multiplayer modes, the frame rate of your connection will affect your data use.

A higher frame rate refreshes the game more often, making it easier to react to the game in real-time. A higher frame rate makes the game run faster but uses more data. You can adjust your frame rate (measured in FPS) in your game settings. To change the frame rate, first, disable V-Synch.
