"Welcome to preseason! Hope you"re ready for some big shake-ups to Summoner"s Rift, expansions and overhauls to multiple item systems, and major work to a bunch of keystones. In many respects this is our most ambitious preseason in years, and we"re excited to see what new picks and strategies develop in a world where the map itself changes during the game. As usual, the next couple of months will be all about establishing and stabilizing the new meta as we head toward season start, so now"s the time to jump in if you want to be ahead of the curve when ranked kicks off in the new year.
On the ranked note, if you"re looking to scratch your competitive itch, TFT"s ranked season starts this patch. Warp on over to the Teamfight Tactics patch notes to get up to speed with what"s going on in the Convergence.
Best of luck in both your preseason matches and in making it through this wall of patch notes!" - Paul "Aether" Perscheid of LeagueOfLegends.com
