League of Legends season 2023 placement games explained
The 2023 League of Legends season has begun and everyone is excited for a soft reset of the ranking system. This soft reset means that everyone has to play ten ranked games, called placement games, to achieve a rank. In addition to the ranks resetting, players can rejoice that their matchmaking rating (MMR) will also be soft reset. A good MMR is essential to gaining more LP per win and losing less LP per loss.
As everyone begins their ranked journey for the 2023 season, there are many questions about placement games.
Placement matches are a key component to the start of each ranked season. As previously mentioned, everyone must play 10 games before receiving an official rank visible to other players. A player does not lose LP when losing a placement and gains much more LP than normal. In addition, there is no promotion series if you advance to the next leaderboard during placement games. Therefore, a player will want to win a majority of their placement games in order to achieve an optimal starting rank.
One thing to note about placement matches is that a player is likely to be placed a full tier down from last season, which is perfectly normal. Additionally, a player cannot exceed Platinum I during placement matches, even if ranked at the Master+ level. A new change in the 2023 ranked season was the addition of a second split, which includes another soft reset of MMR and rank. This means players will go through another set of placement games after the new season’s halfway point.
Although players will have to make an effort to return to their rank from the previous season, the soft reset to MMR will help them level up a little more easily. With all these new changes, everyone is looking forward to trying them out and playing for a higher rank than last year.
