Matchmaking

  • Your season three rank has been cleared (e.g. Bronze 2 and Gold 4). Your matchmaking rating (MMR) has not been affected.
    • Play 10 games in ranked solo/duo queue or 5 games in a ranked team to receive your initial Season 2014 rank.
  • Ranked inactivity timers have been reset.
  • LP clamping no longer applies below Diamond (i.e. there is no longer a minimum or maximum LP gain).
    • This will be particularly noticeable in Bronze 1, Silver 1, Gold 1 and Platinum 1 as summoners in those divisions previously suffered massively modified LP gains and losses to prevent "lucking" into the next League.
  • It is now possible to be demoted from a League (i.e. Gold 5 to Silver 1).
    • To be demoted, your MMR must drop to Division 5 of the previous League (i.e. playing with Silver 5 MMR while in Gold 5). You will receive a warning informing you that you will soon be demoted. Losing subsequent games will lead to demotion to Division 1 of the previous League.
    • There is a 10-game grace period after being promoted to a new League where your MMR cannot be reduced below the requirement to be there.
  • The size of the Challenge-tier has been increased to 200 summoners in Solo/Duo Queue from 50.
  • There is now a minimum LP gain of 1 for ranked wins.
