Season 10 of League of Legends concluded on 10th November this year, gracing the players with admirable additions to the gameplay, whether it be brand new champions, patch updates, or even the seasonal rewards. Though, the professional scene of LOL suffered immensely similar to any other Esports title as a consequence of the global pandemic. Regardless, all of that is now a thing of the past as the fans are now making preparations to welcome the ranked season 11 of League of legends that will be commencing the upcoming year on 9th January 2021.
Taking into account the RIOT Games completely overhauling the item shop, resulting in the items itself as well as build choices for probably every champion in League of Legends. It is fair to assume that season 11 will bring along some of the major reworks and changes that LOL ever witnessed across its long-running season history. RIOT Games test out the pre-season updates for about two months and search for issues and solutions within that time frame.
Furthermore, RIOT also makes sure to provide enough time ahead of the launch date to let players prepare themselves for the ELO reset and grinding for the placement games. For now, if you look at the chart below, it will enlighten you as to how RIOT deals with the season introductions and endings.
