Season 10 roundup

Season 10 was an incredible year for both Riot Games and the community of League of Legends. The tenth year of the competitive season was marked by memorable moments, from exciting new announcements, wonderfully annoying champions and Worlds 2020 to top it all off.

Competitive LoL broke live streaming records on Twitch yet again; not to mention the official release of Riot Games’ second ever game, tactical shooter Valorant. The past year has been phenomenal and sadly, we must say our final goodbyes to the old item shop and its beautifully simple UI.

If you have noticed the new look and have been as confused as I was when recalling to base, and trying to work out which items to buy for my favorite champions, then you will know that the entire UI for the item shop has completely changed, along with the adjustments of old items and the addition of brand new ones.

Some items have even been entirely removed from the game altogether, with the likes of Hextech Gunblade and Adaptive Helm joining those fallen soldiers from the past, adding to the graveyard of items that did not make the cut - a moment of silence for them please.

Nevertheless, there are a ton of brand new items for you to delve into for this year’s preseason, creating a multitude of unique ways to play your favorite champions. This latest item system is being trialled by Riot and also includes the addition of a fresh jungling arrangement.

So far, the changes have been subject to mixed reviews, with a lot of members of the community pleading for Riot to revert back to the old system.

As with every season, there are end of season rewards for those players who managed to end with a rank in any of the competitive queues at Gold or higher, and this year’s Victorious skin is for none other than Lucian, which should be available to use in game in the coming weeks.

Riot recently announced that the end of season rewards would be slightly delayed due to some technical issues, but in the meantime, you can enjoy the beauty for what is Victorious Lucian.

There are also several chromas for the skin for those who ended the season at Platinum or higher, with chromas to match the corresponding colours of the tier crests.

When does Season 11 start?

So, with all things considered, when will the new season actually begin? Well, there is no exact date to be specific, but if we were to go by previous seasons and track record, season 11 should start around January 20, 2021.

The reason for this is the preseason period usually lasts for around two months. This gives Riot enough time to analyze the new updates, assess their impact on the game, whilst also giving them the flexibility to change/add things before the competitive season begins again.

This time acts as a trial period for the developers and, more importantly, a testing ground for the players to figure out the new meta, what works best with champions, and plenty of time to perfect their skills to ensure they start the new season off with a bang.

Good luck out there, have fun and most importantly, do not be toxic!
