Riot Games just announced a big update for the Ranked system. This update only concerns Diamond+ players.
RIP Challenger Players
To fix them, Riot Game will set all Master+ players to Master 0 LP and demoting Diamond players by one division, floored at Diamond IV, by late March. There is a list of demoted ranks…
- Master, Grandmaster, and Challenger players will become Master 0 LP. Resetting the top of the ladder will accelerate the demotion of players who got to Master through exploiting early season bugs and help normalize LP gains.
- Diamond players will be demoted one division, floored at Diamond IV. These demotions will improve—but not completely fix—LP gains for players who got to higher ranks than they should have early in the season.
- You’ll keep your rewards, but they’ll match your new rank. You won’t lose any reward progress, but if you have the Split 1 emote or armor upgrade, they’ll match your post-reset rank.
- Grandmaster and Challenger will temporarily lock. Grandmaster will unlock one week after the reset and Challenger will unlock the week after that.
So, what is your opinion on the fact that the ranks are demoted ?
