League of Legends Season 3 to Use New League System
ByDate: 01-17-2013 Views:
Riot Games has announced that the upcoming third competitive season of League of Legends will abandon the single-ladder system of previous years to focus on leagues. Why the change? To make competition even more compelling and play more meaningful for everyone.
Under the new league system, players will be divided into leagues and divisions, and earn points to progress through winning ranked matches. Riot introduces six different tiers/levels of competition with several leagues in each tier. Players can progress within the tiers through 5 divisions until they qualify for the next tier up. Finally, players can reach the highest and division-less "Challenger" tier.
The new system is detailed in the infographic below. And for even more details, check out the official FAQ.
