Ranked in 2023
Starting this year, we will be resetting rank between the two ranked splits and implementing rewards to match them, to keep LoL up to current expectations, and to put an end to various stress-related issues that lead to LP loss and mid-year declines.
- Ranked Reset: When the second split of the Ranked Season begins, the reset won’t be as stark as it was in January, as the game won’t change enough that players need to earn their rank again. People who haven’t played many games since January will notice this mid-year reset even less.
- Rewards: Players will be able to earn all ranked rewards in each split, including ranked icons, emotes, borders, and a ranked skin. This means that there will be two skins available in ranked this year, plus a few additional rewards you’ll get for moving up.
- Additionally, players will no longer need to reach Gold to earn ranked skins, as they will now receive it based on a number of ranks played based on their ranked level.
- You will continue to be rewarded with chromas based on your final rank at the end of each split.
New Beginnings Event
On January 10-11, the LCS, LEC, LCK, LPL, LJL, CBLOL, LLA, PCS, and VCS will host a two-day special event where we will broadcast a preview of the 2023 season and we will present the most outstanding players of the year. This will give fans an idea of what the 2023 Rift season will look like and what LoL Esports has planned for that year.
All professional teams from all nine regional leagues will send players to compete in the New Beginnings event. Each region will decide for themselves how their teams will rank, so the LCS and PCS may use different methods. Matches will be best-of-three on Summoner’s Rift with no bans or repeat champions. Each of the professional teams represented on the winning team will have the opportunity to create an emote with our designers that we will add to League of Legends.
The New Beginnings event will replace the League of Legends All-Stars event. Although players and fans alike have had plenty of unforgettable memories at the All-Stars over the years, the current planning can be challenging for many of its participants. Replacing All-Stars with New Beginnings will allow professional players to take a well-deserved break and offer fans an exciting new platform to complement the local competitions and celebrations that different regions often host at the end of the year.
Social Impact Challenge
To celebrate all the changes to the jungle, League of Legends is raising a special social impact challenge for players around the world. For every 100 Season 2023 missions players complete by June 24, Riot Games will donate one dollar to the Riot Games Social Impact Fund, in partnership with ImpactAssets, to support environmental conservation, up to a total of one million dollars. Dollars.
