Back in February, League of Legends devs made minor changes to improve the overall state of play of the title via patch updates. Though the tweaks made to Ranked weren't the full set of changes that Riot Games wanted to roll out, they are back now to finish the job.
The main change on-hand from the game developers is the split of Ranked gameplay, as Riot is looking to separate casual from competitive play. Follow along here with our coverage of the latest news from League of Legends after Riot Games revealed the new Wild Rift Legendary Queue.
LoL Wild Rift Legendary Queue - Ranked Update
The purpose of the Ranked changes from Riot Games are to separate those looking to simply play with friends, and those looking to play in the ultimate competitive experience.
- MrBeast vs. Ninja Ultimate Crown - How to watch, schedule, teams, prize pool
- League of Legends 12.12 patch notes - Balance changes, new Snow Moon skins, more
- TSM fired LCS coach Peter Zhang for alleged financial irregularities
- Riot Games celebrates Tyler1 hitting Challenger in all roles
To accomplish this, Riot will introduce Wild Rift Legendary Queue, which is a new queue for players ranked Diamond and above. Though it's certainly worth noting that the new Legendary Queue is only available to solo players.
The new Legendary Queue features a point-based system with new ranks, including Legend status. Players who reach Legend rank will also receive a special global ranking on the overall leaderboard. Wins, losses, points earned, player skill level, and opponent skill level will all come into play to determine rankings.
There are a total of six new major ranks in Legendary Queue (solo), with each providing four sub-tiers as well.
- Warrior VI-I
- Commander VI-I
- Guardian VI-I
- Vanquisher VI-I
- Immortal VI-I
That's everything there is to know for now on the recently revealed League of Legends Wild Rift Ranked Legendary Solo Queue. We'll continue to monitor the situation and will be sure to update you should Riot Games provide any further details on the recent changes, or if there are additional tweaks in store.
