The 2018 season is nearly here. On January 16th, 2018, take the first step and begin your journey.


As in previous seasons, your rank will be soft-reset at the start of the season: Your new rank will be based off of both your existing MMR and your performance in 10 placement games.

In Challenger tier, we’re removing the solo-only restriction in Ranked Solo/Duo. We saw that Challenger players were facing Master tier duos pretty regularly, which ends up making the queue less competitive overall (despite the original intention back in 2016), and also punishes duos on the upper echelons of Master for winning too hard. We’ll be monitoring how much this impacts the health of the queue over the coming weeks.

In addition to your tier, ranked rewards will have a requirement of Honor level 2 or above at the end of this season.


Like ranked, Honor resets with the season start as well. Honor level 3, 4, and 5 players get a scaling head start, and you can learn all the details over here. After that, it’s up to you to fight with Honor on your way up the ladder.

2018’s Honor rewards start at Honor level 3.

... and more

When the new season starts, you can once more earn Hextech chests for each champion by getting an S- or higher champion mastery rank in-game.

You're definitely gonna want to do your placements early and stay Honor level 2 or above so you can participate in our new tournament experience, Clash.

A lot’s changed since preseason began! Check out these pages for details:

Hyped for the season! We Hitting Challenger Boys!
Hi. I am En1gma and I am a League of Legends player.
I am currently going to a community college and studying to become a sports psychologist and later, a League of Legends Coach. With that said I also have a passion for competitive League of Legends and want to earn a spot on a collegiate level team so I can play and study simultaneously. By the end of this year, I will be at least Diamond 1 and have an athletic scholarship.
I would like to join as many tournaments possible, however I do not want to be a permanent player on a team as I feel they are limiting until Diamond 2+ but I am interested in subbing in for scrims/practices, tournaments, or to duo/flex and eventually "Clash" when that comes out.
To sum up I am a very motivated young player who is looking to work hard and become the best player I can possibly be!
