So I'm very familiar with how SC manages seasons but not so much with League.

I saw somewhere the season ends relatively soon, but then what?

Is there a ladder freeze?

Does a new season immediately start?

Do we go into off season training?

It has been awhile since the end of season 1.

If I recall correctlly there was a down time for ranked while they implemeneted abunch of new features, which they seem to be doing again for the end of season 2.

The elo resets. This is pretty much where the Elo Purgatory takes place. newbies will be carried by good players, and will be like "look at my elo I'm such a boss", and when they drop, the just go "elo hell exists!"

I'd wait 2 weeks after ranked are back on before playing it.

No, it ends on the 23rd of October I believe.

The Elo reset is only going to be a 'soft' one; those at the top of the ladder will still be there, but instead of being at 2k+, they'll be somewhere in the 14-1800 range (I don't know exact numbers, so these are off the top of my head).

During the early stages of a season, there's a lot more opportunity to make big changes, so we're going to see several. Other than that though, we've only seen one season end so far, so it's entirely possible Riot handles it a bit differently this year.
