After Riot announced a massive schedule change, LP Changes are coming to Ranked 2024 as well.
Riot has gone into a spree of talking about the Preseason. 2024 is going to be a year of a ton of changes for League of Legends. Mythic Items are getting removed, the Preseason period in the game is being eliminated, and more.
The biggest change was the announcement of Ranked all year round. Now, League of Legends will have three splits of Ranked starting from January and continuing the entire year. This changes how Riot does changes, preseason, and such.
More Ranked splits mean more rewards but also problems to climb. Riot has already made changes to placement games and removed promotion games in Ranked. While those may still stay in, three splits mean there’s an LP deficit to account for.
Thus, Riot devs have gone to Twitter to talk about Ranked in 2024, which will include some pretty big LP changes. Here is what we know so far.
Ranked LP Changes
There are a few Riot devs that talked about the future Ranked changes coming. The first one coming for Riot Iksar, one of the new Riot devs.
In this comment, Riot Iksar iterates that they will adjust the amount of time needed to get you your “real” rank. Also, part of the reason Ranked has three splits is to make it easier to do full-balance changes without upsetting the apple cart.
Riot Iksar followed up the previous comment with the fact that Riot will keep monitoring LP changes over the course of the year.
Negative LP States are also an issue, as Riot Iksar talked about Riot doing some work on it. So Riot is doing a fair bit of work for LP changes. Riot BarackProbama also commented on the topic of LP changes.
This one is pretty much as Riot plans to make similar changes as in Ranked 2023. We should see more LP gains, fewer placement matches, and more use of a soft reset. However, Riot BarackProbama did not rule out other changes that fall into the same vein.
The community is divided on these changes, so we will have to see how Riot handles this. It is definitely a ground-breaking change for sure. Let’s see how Riot makes these changes and how the players take it.
