The turn of the decade will usher in a new era for League of Legends as the devs prepare to launch significant updates at the start of Season 10.

Riot Games have been teasing all of the biggest changes coming to Summoner’s Rift in Preseason 2020 as players are already saying their farewells to Season 9.

While there’s going to be a buffer between the ranked windows for the MOBA, players will have tons to explore during downtime with the Rise of the Elements, changes to the landscape in side lanes, and more.

Riot GamesThe 2020 season is going to reshape Summoner’s Rift in many ways.

When will Season 10 start?

Since players are already gearing up for the 9.23 patch to launch in the coming days, there’s going to be a ton of hype revolving around the new elements coming into the league – but the preseason will be a crash course for the next competitive season for League of Legends that starts on January 7.

Riot Games laid out their Preseason 2020 roadmap on the updated Australian version for the LoL client on November 19.

Along with the dates for Clash, the release of new champion Aphelios, and the next in-game event, Riot let their player base know when they’ll be able to start the climb for their 2020 rank in the new season.

Riot GamesThe Australian LoL Client shows the upcoming dates for Clash, Aphelios, an in-game event, and Season 10’s launch. Players should adjust those dates for their corresponding region.

New features in Season 10 for League of Legends

By the time Season 10 officially rolls around, players will have had a good understanding of the new dynamics introduced with the Rise of the Elements update.

The drakes will not only bring in a more systematic approach to drake spawns after a point, it will also give a team the chance to get a Dragon Soul that will persist throughout the remainder of a match.

After that, the Elder Dragon will spawn, where a “new execution component” will be granted to the slaying team.

Riot GamesNew features including a retooled Elder buff execution will come to the Rift with the Rise of the Elements update.

“If Elder’s burn damage affects a low-health enemy champion, they’ll be consumed by a searing Elder Immolation—killing them instantly!” Riot Games noted in the Preseason 2020 gameplay preview.

Moreover, there will be diversity in jungle pathing that will rework XP/gold tuning, changes in the minion XP so that solo laners can have more of an impact in games, a rework in how support items get upgraded, and a lot more.

Riot Games will be putting in a massive amount of new content in League of Legends in the coming weeks to get players up to speed once Season 10 launches.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
