The 8.1 Tides of Vengeance Release date is on 11 December 2018

What this means is the current PTR patch and all its patch notes are the FINAL BUILD and there won't be any major changes going forward in the 8.1 build.
As with all patch downloads go, people are experiencing issues with the BNet launcher taking up almost 90% CPU

Here are all the patches released on PTR with preview and details on ICY-Veins:
