It feels like League of Legends' Season 3 has only just begun, to be honest, yet here we are only two months from the season's official end. Yes, Riot Games has announced that on October 31. Hand in hand with that announcement comes the reveal of the end-of-season ladder rewards. As is tradition, Gold-tier and above will net players all of the big exclusive rewards. If you're planning on climbing the ladder, it might be best to get to it! Two months left!
As far as rewards go, players can expect summoner icons, profile banners, loading screen trim, a Victorious Champion skin, and new this year a permanent Victorious Ward skin. As for how the rewards break down with regards to the specific tiers, here's the list:
- Bronze Tier or Higher: Season 3 Summoner Icon
- Silver or Higher: Profile Banner Trim, Loading Screen Border, Victorious Ward Skin
- Gold or Higher: Season 3 Medal for Buddy and Team Invitations, Victorious Champion Skin
I'm not exactly clear what the Gold-tier "Medal for Buddy and Team Invitations" is supposed to be. I assume it's a something that stands out when you send out an invitation, as if to say, "Hey, don't worry, I'll carry you." Also, you might be asking yourself who that Victorious Champion Skin might be for. Riot was initially a bit mysterious about this... until they dropped an epic image showing Elise in her new Victorious armor whispering, "Be Victorious." I am okay with this!
League of Legends' World Championship will be held October 4 at the Staples Center. Did you hear tickets sold out in less than an hour after going on-sale? It's going to be absolutely huge. Do your part and watch the World Championships all September long, while also climbing up the ladder to acquire your own Victorious Elise skin. It's going to be great!
