End of Season Info

Resets, rewards, and more make the end of each season as eventful as the season itself. Read on to get an idea of what you can expect!

Tier Reset

Glory. Challenge. Loot. There's no shortage of reasons to test your mettle in Ranked play. But if you need even more incentive, how about starting on a higher rung of the ladder next season?

If you've finished your placement games, your starting rank will be entirely based on your final rank in the previous season as described below:

Final Rank in Current Season Starting Rank in Next Season
Iron, Bronze, and Silver No change!
Gold 4 Gold 4
Gold 3 Gold 4
Gold 2 Gold 3
Gold 1 Gold 3
Platinum 4 Gold 2
Platinum 3 Gold 2
Platinum 2 Gold 1
Platinum 1 Gold 1
Emerald 4 Platinum 4
Emerald 3 Platinum 4
Emerald 2 Platinum 3
Emerald 1 Platinum 3
Diamond 4 Platinum 2
Diamond 3 Platinum 1
Diamond 2 Emerald 4
Diamond 1 Emerald 3
Master Emerald 2
Grandmaster Emerald 1
Challenger Diamond 4

Legendary Queue Rank Reset

Legendary Queue's reset is much simpler than standard Ranked:

If you are lower than Commander IV 50 LP, your position will remain unchanged.

If you are higher than Commander IV 50 LP, you'll be returned to Commander IV 50 LP when a new season rolls over.

This hard reset helps us put the "Legendary" in "Legendary Queue," but we also want you to get a little boost in recognition of your achievement the previous season. That's why players who end the season Guardian or higher get a special victory LP boost for a certain number of games once the new season starts!

End of Season Rank LP Buff, Duration
Guardian +20%,10 games
Vanquisher +30%,15 games
Immortal +40%,20 games
Legend +50%,25 games



At the end of the season, those who fight their way to Gold or higher with at least 10 ranked wins will receive a player emblem emblazoned with the highest rank they reach. For more specifics on this and other potential rewards, check out our current season FAQ or the Legendary Queue page for its rewards!


Other End-of-Season Notes

Your Ranked Fortitude will reset back to zero as soon as the season finishes. That includes any active loss protection or coming double-win bonuses, so use 'em while you can!

As mentioned in our Ranked Overview, you'll only have to play through your placement games once. If you finished them in any previous season, you're good to go!

The clock's ticking! Log in, queue up, and climb away!
