Ranked game in 2023
Starting this year, a reset related to rewards will be carried out between the two ranking splits to bring the League up to modern standards and to avoid unpleasant situations related to mid-year losses or demotions.
- Rank Reset: After the start of the 2nd split of the ranking season, the rank reset will not be as deep as in January, because the game does not undergo major changes during this period giving players the opportunity to make up ranks in the same range. The mid-year reset will be even less significant if someone has not played too many games since January.
- Rewards: Players can now earn full rank rewards in each split, including icons and emoticons, rank frames, and rank skins. That means we’ll have two ranking skins this year, as well as some additional prizes worth climbing for.
- In addition, players won’t have to meet the Gold achievement requirement to get a ranking skin, instead, they can earn one based on a rank-dependent number of games played in the ranking queue.
- Colors will continue to be awarded based on the final rank achieved at the end of the split.
