Summoners!

Season One will conclude with our next scheduled downtime. We have some additional important updates for you!

We wanted to let you know we're updating our Season One reward tiers to better represent and reward the competitive gamers in the community. We think the new structure provides more players with a chance to achieve higher tiered status without compromising the exclusivity of each rank.

We made these adjustments based upon the percentage of our playerbase that we wanted to recognize at each tier.

The new ladder reward tiers are:

  • Platinum (Top 0.2%) - 1900 and above (3v3: 1700+, pre-made 5v5: 1750+): a framed summoner icon in platinum, a platinum banner in summoner profile, a platinum forum badge and a special skin for Jarvan IV
  • Gold (Top 3%) - Between 1520 and 1899 (3v3: 1490-1699, pre-made 5v5: 1500-1749) : a framed summoner icon in gold, a gold banner in your summoner profile, a gold forum badge and a special skin for Jarvan IV
  • Silver (Top 10%) - Between 1400 and 1519 (3v3: 1410-1489, pre-made 5v5: 1410-1499) : a framed summoner icon in silver and a silver banner in your summoner profile
  • Bronze (Top 25%) - Between 1249 and 1399 (3v3: 1249-1409, pre-made 5v5: 1249-1409) : a bronze banner in your summoner profile

As we enter Preseason Two, we will be performing a graduated reset of the League of Legends ladder based on player performance in Ladder Season One. The vast majority of players (97%) will have their Elo reset to between 1100 and 1300 rating, with top and bottom performers falling anywhere between 906 and 1490 rating. Ladder gains made during Preseason Two will carry over into Season Two once it begins.

Season One will conclude with our next scheduled downtime, so be sure to work on that ladder rank quickly!

Update: Even though we changed up our requirements to allow more summoners to achieve Platinum status, we haven’t forgotten those extremely high Elo players who’ve entered into the 2220 Elo echelon. In fact, no one will.

In addition to all the great awards Platinum players will receive, we’re creating a special section of the website to list the summoners whose Elo exceeded 2220 at the conclusion of the season!

Thanks for the update!

A lil' late in my opinion but still gives us quite some time to climb the ladder!

Feels like everyone going to run around with that Jarvan skin next season. Not sure I like it... I thought it would be more rare.

My ranked 3v3 rating is 1510, which is greater than 1490, but it's still not gold on my profile . Would I still get the Jarvan skin?
