Both ranked, and professional League of Legends are getting updated in 2023 as well. For players who enjoy Ranked, you will be pleased to hear that the Mid-Year Reset will NOT completely reset your rank. Riot claims that in the mid-year, the game will not change enough to warrant players having their entire rank reset. On top of that, players will get full ranked rewards during each Ranked Split as well, which include Ranked skins. So you will earn two skins this year, depending on your rank.

As for professional League of Legends, there is actually a huge update coming very soon. From January 10-11, the LCS, LEC, LCK, LPL, LJL, CBLOL, LLA, PCS, and VCS will participate in a new two-day event. This is called the Season Kickoff Event.

During the Season Kickoff Event, players and teams from each league will get to show off what they are made of to give viewers a good preview of what to expect in the upcoming professional season for League of Legends.
