What Happens After The LoL Season 9 Start Date?
What Is Preseason and How Does It Work?
When does preseason start and end? Great question! After Season 8 ends we enter into a pre-season phase until LoL Season 9 begins.
For starters, Rankings earned in Preseason will carry over into LoL Season 9 Start. You’ll also notice that elo decay doesn’t occur, which means you don’t have to feel as pressured to play ranked so your elo doesn’t drop to a lower division.
Believe it or not, it’s a great time to get practice in and play ranked during this phase. Generally, it lasts for 2-3 months after a season ends. This gives Riot all the time they need to prepare for the next season start. This includes lots of balance changes and overall game updates that are all scheduled to be released during preseason.
The more games you win during your Season 9 Start placement matches the higher you will rank this Season.
(This includes any rankings you received during Preseason)
When Season 8 Starts in League of Legends all players will have to complete 10 placement Matches (Solo Queue, Flex 3v3, Flex 5v5).
