Welcome to the New Season
It’s the new season and you know what that means - it is time to climb again!
The season begins on 1st January 2018 and ends on the 1st April 2018. Reach Gold by the end of this season and be rewarded with a Verdant Payna skin!
Some of you may be wondering why your ranks have been reset to a lower ranking at the start of a new season. This is because AOV is a constantly evolving MOBA where the meta shifts frequently. If we do not reset, players are able to just coast along in the new season and get rewarded for their achievements in the previous season. Season resets allow us to celebrate the best players’ skill and ability to adapt to each season’s meta. It also provides a better sense of accomplishment and reward.
However, we did not hard-reset everyone to the lowest rank, as that will wreck havoc on a new player’s experience if they happen to start playing ranked just after a season reset. Imagine playing against a conqueror player for your very first ranked game (shudders). The soft-reset also gives players a slight advantage for their hard work in the previous season.
The full soft-reset list is as follows:
Bronze III - Bronze III
Bronze II - Bronze II
Bronze I - Bronze I
Silver III - Bronze I
Silver II - Silver III
Silver I - Silver III
Gold IV - Silver II
Gold III - Silver II
Gold II - Silver I
Gold I - Silver I
Platinum V - Gold IV
Platinum IV - Gold IV
Platinum III - Gold III
Platinum II - Gold III
Platinum I - Gold III
Diamond V - Gold II
Diamond IV - Gold II
Diamond III - Gold I
Diamond II - Gold I
Diamond I - Gold I
Conqueror (0-10 Stars) - Platinum V
Conqueror (11-50 Stars) - Platinum IV
Conqueror (51-100 Stars) - Platinum III
Conqueror (101-150 Stars) - Platinum II
Conqueror (151-9999 Stars) - Platinum I
That’s all from us today. Happy New Year and have fun in the Arena!
