The team also continues to work towards League’s goal of creating a much more diverse pool of champions that spans all cultures, genders, and in-game skill levels in every role.
LoL 2023 Ranked Season
Starting this year, a ranked reset will occur between the two ranked seasons. With this reset, which will also be accompanied by awards, it is aimed to reduce the stress caused by possible grading or relegation situations in the middle of the year.
Ranked Reset: The reset that will occur when the 2nd season of Ranked season starts will not be as serious as it was in January because the game will not change enough to require players to regain their rank. The mid-year reset will have even less impact if players haven’t played much since January.
Rewards: Players can now earn all ranked rewards in each ranked season, including icons, emotes, ranked frames, and a ranked skin. This means players will be able to grab two skins in this year’s ranked season, as well as some additional rewards for their ranked climb.
Players no longer have to reach Gold Tier to earn their ranked skin. From now on, skins can be obtained by playing a number of ranked games determined by rank.
Colors will continue to be distributed based on players’ final rank at the end of the season.
Season Start Event
The Season Start event will replace the League of Legends All-Star event. All-Star events have had countless major highlights over the years for players and fans alike, but the current schedule can challenge many All-Star players.
Riot Games said that replacing All-Star events with the Season Start event will give professional players the opportunity to get the rest they deserve. The company also stated that it will offer fans a brand new and exciting environment in addition to the local year-end events and celebrations held by the regions this time of year.
