Ranked Changes

Grandmaster and Challenger Ranked Changes: Let the Race Begin!

To make the race to Grandmaster and Challenger more exciting, we've changed the unlock process. Challenger and Grandmaster are still limited to the top accounts on each server, but players must have at least 200 LP in Master to reach Grandmaster, and at least 500 LP in Grandmaster to reach Challenger. Grandmaster and Challenger are no longer locked at the start of the season, so the race to be the first in your region starts on day one! Right out of the gates, you can race to have your name below mine!

Region Challenger and Grandmaster Quota Adjustments

Some regions are having their Challenger and Grandmaster slot counts adjusted to match their populations.
  • BR: 50/100 (No Change)
  • EUNE: 50/100 ⇒ 100/200
  • EUW: 200/500 ⇒ 200/400

Fates Ranked Stage II begins this patch!

  • Your rank has been "soft" reset down one tier below you. For example, if you are currently in Gold II you will now be in Silver II.
  • If you are very good at this game and currently placed in Master or above, you will be reset to Diamond 4.
  • You will get 5 provisional matches after the reset, meaning you will not lose any LP for sub-top 4 placements in your first 5 ranked games of the new stage.You’ll also gain extra LP for finishing top four, so best of luck!

Ranked Rewards Coming to a Patch Near You (Soon)

  • Don’t get too EMOTEional, ranked rewards for gold and above will be coming next patch, 11.3!

  • Kindred Dance of Dread Damage: 450/650/1000 ⇒ 400/600/1000
  • Veigar Attack Speed: 0.6 ⇒ 0.65

Tier 4

Morgana’s getting trait and ability swaps that improve upon her identity as a dazzling drain tank. She’ll still be dazzling, but she’ll be doing even more drain tanking with the new Syphoner trait at the cost of her Magic Resist shred. Morg’s tool tip may be a bit dazzled with her new changes. Expect a fix to that later, but for now know that her spell DOES NOT SHRED MAGIC RESIST.
  • Aatrox Infernal Chains Damage: 250/450/1250 ⇒ 350/550/1500
  • Morgana Traits: Enlightened Dazzler ⇒ Enlightened Syphoner
  • Morgana Tormented Shadow no longer heals Morgana for a portion of the damage dealt. Spell now reduces enemy Attack Damage by 40% while they remain inside.
  • Morgana Tormented Shadow no longer shreds Magic Resist
  • Sejuani Mana: 70/150 ⇒ 80/160

Tier 5

Azir’s Crowd Control and Sand Soldiers have made him a must pick for just about any situation. By sanding down some of his CC, maybe some other players will shuffle him back into the pool so I can get to 9 Warlords more consistently. Speaking of consistency, Yone’s been far too strong as a mid game power grab, so we’re giving him a mini-rework. Yone’s now going to have to defeat his marked opponents faster if he’s to truly conquer his demons.
  • Azir Emperor’s Divide Knock Up Duration: 2 ⇒ 1.5 sec
  • Azir Emperor’s Divide Slow Duration: 4 ⇒ 3

  • Yone Unforgotten no longer deals missing health damage. Instead, Unforgotten will deal additional percent damage based on the target’s missing health for up to 100% additional damage

Items

Turns out making a bunch of aura items to empower one super carry that then grabs a Hurricane and goes to town is a bit strong. Giantslayer is giving players Jack and the Beanstalk flashbacks, and that’s just not okay, because giants are people too. The new set has more healing mechanics (syphoner, slayer), so trimming some power from Hand of Justice and Hextech Gunblade will help prevent cases of extreme over-healing.
  • Chalice of Power Spell Power: 35 ⇒ 30
  • Giantslayer Max Damage: 90% ⇒ 80%
  • Hand of Justice Damage & Healing: 45% ⇒ 40%
  • Hextech Gunblade Max Shield: 400 ⇒ 300
  • Hurricane Bonus Damage: 90% ⇒ 80%
  • Statikk Shiv Bounces: 3/4/5 ⇒4/5/6
  • Zeke’s Herald Bonus Attack Speed: 35% ⇒ 30%
  • Zz’Rot Portal Construct now gains bonus 0/0/10/20/40/80/120/200 Armor and MR based on the Stage
