Ranked Update

Continuing our work on Ranked to ensure that the start of season is a less frustrating experience for all players. For Diamond specifically, we're removing the complexity in the system since the tier used to have an entirely different version of decay. This new version is also more forgiving for Diamond players than the old version, in addition to being more relaxed than the rules for Master+. 

  • Initial Placement Configuration: The Ranked reset at the start of the season will be smaller this year to get players back to their expected rank faster. To compensate, LP gains and losses have been made slightly smaller.
  • Unified Ranked Decay: Diamond now uses the same banked-game decay system as Master+, though with more relaxed tuning.

Master, Grandmaster, Challenger

  • Each game played banks 1 day of activity, up to 10
  • After 10 days of inactivity, you'll begin consuming banked days
  • Once all banked days have been consumed, you lose 250 LP each day until you fall out of Master

Diamond

  • Each game played banks 7 days of activity, up to 28
  • After 28 days of activity, you'll begin consuming banked days (this initial grace period is skipped if you decayed into Diamond from Master+)
  • Once all banked days have been consumed, you lose 50 LP each day until you fall out of Diamond
