When Does League of Legends Season 2024 Start?
Ahead of the League of Legends Worlds 2023 grand finale, Riot Games shared the gameplay teaser of Season 2024 on 19th November. The teaser captivated the players as it introduced sweeping changes to the League of Legends and the Summoner's Rift we know.
Apart from the void-related changes, new monster, and map and terrain changes, Riot Games has brought forth a plenty of item changes. What's always exciting about a new season is the enthusiasm and rigor that players emulate when it comes to ranked reset and climb.
Here's everything you need to know about League of Legends Season 2024 and its release date.
League of Legends Season 2024 Start Date: Ranked Reset & More
For the first time, players do not have a preseason in League of Legends. Instead, they will be directly playing on the new map, experiencing different changes right when the season kicks off. This means that the ranked reset will also happen as is and player won't have time to grind during the preseason period.
As per the countdown timer on the client, the second split of the Season 2023 ranked is scheduled to end around 2 am CT on 10th January. As a result, players can expect the first split of Season 2024 ranked to begin shortly after the previous split ends on 10th January. For some players, it could happen on 9th January and this discrepancy is due to time zone differences.
Here are the key dates Riot mentioned in its earlier blog:
Gameplay changes go live with patch 14.1 on 10th January
Split 1 begins on 9th January
Split 2 begins in May
Split 3 begins in September
Changes in League of Legends Season 2024
Even before we got information about new champions and Arcane-related content in League, Riot Games made it clear that one of the biggest changes would be "void-related." It said, "Get ready for map changes, new monsters, item updates, and more hitting the Rift in January."
Some of the things to look out for in the new season are as follows:
Voidgrubs and Voidmites:
Rift Herald's New Look
Baron Nashor & his new looks
Item changes, revamp & new additions
Release of Smolder, Ambessa Medarda, & Vatsayan mid-laner
After the publisher missed the mark last year with the season start cinematic, the community took it upon itself to express how important the game is to the players. Now, keeping up its promise, Riot Games will be releasing a champion-led cinematic for Season 2024.
Players should keep their eyes peeled on social media on 10th January as the Season 2024 cinematic is all set to release at 7 am PT.
