In a recent post on their official twitter account, the League of Legends developer team posted the complete Split 1 timetable for the MOBA's 2023 ranked season. According to the tweet, the beginning will shortly follow the release of Patch 13.1. The game update may be deployed sooner or later than the times specified, but this is par for the course in any major League patch.
Planned updates for Riot's well-known title are set to introduce huge quality-of-life improvements. These new ease-of-play mechanics will allow players to recommend summoner spells, utilize new “jungler” options and much more. These new changes will roll out in parallel with the start of the coming ranked season.
Obviously, each region's approximate start date comes after Patch 13.1 becomes officially downloadable. Here are the official deploy times in every region's local time.
Welcome to Season 2023. Before you start your g̶r̶i̶n̶d̶ climb, check in with Riot Brightmoon, Riot Auberaun, and Riot Lexical to learn about:
