Reworks and new champions in 2023

Ahri’s update is just around the corner! These impressive modifications affect her basic design, skins, visual effects, illustrations and the nine tails.

We can also expect the implementation of larger updates that aim to revamp the gameplay experience of older champions and modernize the template.

At the start of the year, Aurelion Sol also had an update, a completely new skill kit was released for the Star Forger.

Although not much is known about it, a Skarner rework is also planned for mid-year. This would not be the first rework that this hero has had, although a second rework would not be bad for him.

Riot Games also revealed the two new champions to be released this year. One of them is Milio, who is already available for use a few months ago. About the other one, we still know almost nothing apart from his name, which is going to be Naafiri.

Rankeds in 2023

Starting this year, The Ranked matches will be restarted between two qualifier splits and Riot Games will implement rewards that match them, in order to bring LoL up to current expectations and thus put an end to various stress-related problems that come with losing and relegations in the middle of the year.

Ranks restart
When the second split of the qualifying season begins, the restart will not be as marked as the one that happened in January, since the game will not change so much that players will need to re-earn their rankings. People who have not played many games since January will notice this mid-year restart even less.

Players will be able to get all ranked rewards in each split, which includes icons, emoticons, ranked borders and a ranked skin. This means that there will be two skins available in this year’s qualifiers, plus a few additional rewards that you will get for moving up.

In addition, players will no longer need to reach Gold to get the qualifying skins, as they will now receive it based on a number of qualifiers played depending on their level in the leaderboard.

Jokes will continue to be rewarded based on the final ranking at the end of each split.

New Beginnings Event

Between July 10 and 11, all competitive League of Legends leagues will host a special two-day event where we will broadcast a preview of the 2023 season and introduce the year’s top players. This will give fans an idea of what the 2023 Rift season will look like and what LoL Esports has planned for that year.

All pro teams will be sending players to compete in the New Beginnings event. Matches will be best-of-three on Summoner’s Rift with no lockouts or repeat champions. Each of the professional teams represented on the winning team will have the opportunity to create with the designers an emoticon that will be added to the game.

On the other hand, it has become customary for Riot to announce the patches that will be made throughout the year. With this tool, we always know when the next buff or skin to our favorite champion is coming.

For the first time in a long time, League of Legends goes from updating on Wednesdays to Tuesdays, being this day the new official patch day, moving forward one day.

Therefore, every Tuesday every two weeks we will have a LoL patch unless there is a vacation or major surprise, plus an important detail: sometimes B versions of patches are released to adjust changes that have not been liked.
