Riot will debut its new season and rank reset in a few hours.
Players who played ranked in Season 0 will receive rewards depending on their placement.
Riot is also releasing several yordle champions into the game including Lulu, Tristana, Corki and Kennen.

Season 0 of Wild Rift started on 7th October 2020 and after several months, the first official ranked season of Wild Rift will start today on 8th January 2021. Players who played ranked games in Season 0 will receive ranked rewards after the season ends (a participation icon for everyone and a player emblem for those who hit Gold and above). A soft rank reset for Season 1 will go live with the update, and Ranked mode will be unavailable for a few hours while Riot transitions between seasons. Riot also has Glorious skin up for grabs for those who climbed to Gold and above ranks. Glorious Tryndamere is expected to be available soon. 

A countdown timer has gone live inside the client just a few days before the season officially ends to notify all players.

Along with the rank reset, Riot is adding a loved (and hated) champion to the Wild Rift. In a recent patch notes update, Riot dropped hints of releasing Teemo with a special event, similar to Wukong’s Challenge. Teemo will be released with Cottontail Teemo and Little Devil Teemo skins. Along with him, Riot is also releasing a horde of yordles onto the rift including Corki, Kennen, Lulu and Tristana.
