Boosting.Pro team is glad to tell you about the launch of 2016 Ranked games Season in League of Legends! As usual, midseason period lasted for a very long time and all the players cannot wait to start climbing the ladder, and there’s not much time left to wait – on the 20th of January everyone can start getting up to the top of the LoL ladder! Every season brings us something new – and we’re going to tell you about new stuff in the game more in-detail. You have less than a week to prepare to a new season, but if you encounter any difficulties – our team is always ready to come to your aid!
League of Legends (LoL) placement games – season 2016
Regardless of if you participated in Ranked in previous seasons or not, you’ll have to play 10 Placement games. That is required to “qualify” you for the starting league/division, from which you’ll start your way to the peak of ladder. If you have played Ranked in previous season(s), your placement will depend a lot on which league and division you were back then, and if you haven’t – your placement will rely on your placement games result a lot more.
It often happens that you encounter weak and toxic teammates while playing 10 placement games, which cripples your chances to win. Having lost too many games, you can find yourself in lower divisions which are very hard to escape from due to the percent of new and inexperienced players ot there is big. So if you’re not sure if you can flawlessly play your placement games – you can buy 10 placement games from us and get 8/10 wins guaranteed! If our booster doesn’t get 8 wins while playing your Placement Games, you’ll receive 1 division boosted as a gift!
In pre-season some serious changes were patched in, so before the placements the ratings are going to be partly reset. This means you’ll most likely be placed a little lower than the division you ended previous season at.
We’ll remind you the details of Ranked Season 2016:
- Only owners of Summoner Level 30 accounts can participate in ranked;
- To participate in Ranked you need to play 10 Placement Games beforehand;
- Two maps are available for Ranked gameplay: Summoner’s Rift (5v5) and Twisted Treeline (3v3);
- You can play Ranked in two modes – solo/duo (alone or with a friend) or Team (team of 5 or team of 3, depending on the map);
- Outcomes of Normal Games don’t influence Ranked;
- To balance out teams’ chances, players with low rating cannot be matched with players with high rating;
- You get not only rating for participation in Ranked, but IP as well.
New Picking system
Before this season, Matchmaking just gathered a team judging only by players’ rating, that could lead to conflicts over a certain position. This was reworked in preseason, and now, when starting a search for a ranked game, every player can pick two positions that suit him best, or accept position offered by matchmaking (most needed at the given moment). Also solo/party queue was reworked as a dynamic queue, you can play with any amount of friends, although the rating of all your friends should be similar. This system is designed for everyone to play using balanced ratings.
Help with Promotion Series
If you are below Gold 1 and fail the Promotion series, you’ll start next series with 1-0 score already. Also, for high-rated players, matchmaking was optimized for the system to easier find partners of the same level, expanding MMR range of values if needed. Boosting.Pro team wishes you fun games and high ratings in the upcoming season! And please remember – we’re always happy to help you and your friends advance in the ladder!
