The League of Champions team continues to invest in their goals of creating a more diverse champion base that includes all cultures, genders, and skill levels in the game for every role. In 2023, players can look forward to new champions: Milio, an Ixtal Enchanter, and Naafiri, a mid lane Darkin assassin.
Ranked in 2023
Starting this year, both ranked stages will have a ranked reset halfway through, with their respective rewards, in an effort to bring LoL up to current expectations and address pain points around the stress of avoiding relegation or mid-year demotions.
When Stage 2 of the Ranked Season begins, the reset won’t be as heavy as it was in January, as the game won’t change enough to cause players to have to regain their rank to the same extent. The mid-year reset will be even less important if a player hasn’t played many games since January.
Players can now earn full rewards at each ranked stage, including icons and emotes, ranked borders, and a ranked skin. This means that there will be two skins for ranked this year, as well as some additional rewards for promotion.
Additionally, players will no longer have to meet the Gold rank requirement to earn a Ranked skin, and will instead earn it based on the number of Ranked matches played.
Chromas will continue to be earned based on your final rank at the end of that ranked stage.
