All League players will enter preseason shortly after Season end in League of Legends. which is a bit different in terms of how the Ranked modes function. Here’s what you can expect and how to handle it.
During this PreSeason phase, RIOT makes huge changes to the entire game. This ranges from Map Redesigns and massive Balance Changes to Roles, Items and even ranking systems.
The elo you gain during this 1-2 month period does not count towards ranked rewards, but it is still worth noting that whatever MMR or rank you gain during this time, you will keep some of it when the next season start.
When season 9 starts in LoL there will be a soft reset, meaning that you will become unranked but your MMR will still reflect where you were before the reset, so if you were platinum in pre-season you will place higher in season 9 than if you were gold or silver.
What About Elo Decay?
Good news! You don’t have to worry about all that. One thing you should note, if you hit a higher rank during pre-season that’s good in a way. When the actual season begins you’ll be able to do placement matches and place near the elo you were previously.
So if you’re wondering whether you should play during this phase. Yes, you should it’ll help you get better and place higher if you happen to reach higher rankings.
