Ranked Rewards

You’ve bravely wandered Runeterra amidst a Convergence storm, and if you made it to Gold or higher along the way, there’ll be a special Chibi Star Guardian Lux emote for you to flex with! You can also get emotes for Double Up and Hyper Roll.

Horizonbound Ranked Resets

Your rank has been "soft" reset down one tier below your current standings. For example, if you are currently in Gold II you will now be in Silver II. If you are very good at this game and currently placed in Master or above, you will be reset to Diamond IV. You will get five provisional matches after the reset, meaning you will not lose any LP for sub-top-four placements in your first five ranked games of the new stage. You’ll also gain some extra LP for finishing top four.
