League of Legends Season 11 is almost here. If you want to get your Season 10 ranked rewards, you don’t have long left to grind. Here’s everything we know about League’s next season, and when it’s coming.

Season 10 has seemingly flown by in League of Legends. The celebratory year for Riot Games has been marked by big events, a handful of new champions, and now Worlds 2020.

However, players are already looking forward to Season 11. We’ve had big changes to the map and runes in the past, but this time, items are the big focus. Before then though, you’ll still have some time to get towards that Victorious Lucian.

If you want to get Victorious Lucian, you’ll have to hit Gold by the end of Season 10.

Here’s everything we know about League of Legends Season 11, and just how long you have left until the new items start changing the way you play.

When does League of Legends Season 10 end?

League of Legends Season 10 is locked in to finish sometime in “early November,” after Riot revealed they are shipping the pre-season changes live at that time. The exact date is November 10, 2020, in line with League Patch 10.23.

It’ll come after six weeks of testing on the PBE before it hits live servers, where Riot will tinker with some of the changes with the community. When pre-season 11 hits live, Season 10 will end, and so will your last chance to grind for ranked rewards.

If you want to get your hands on Victorious Lucian by hitting gold, or get that cool looking banner heading into the new year, you’ll need to start queuing up now before times runs out.

Seraphine is still yet to be released in Season 10, along with a tank support.

What ranked rewards are on offer after League Season 10?

As with every season before now, the Victorious skin is on offer for players who reach Gold and above. In Season 10, the champion bestowed with that honor is Lucian.

However, more than just a skin, players who finish Platinum and above will receive additional chromas to correspond with their final rank.

If you don’t make Gold, don’t worry. You’ll still get a ranked icon and a ranked profile banner trim to match your final rank. Plus, everyone will receive Lucian’s Series 1 Eternals set.

You’ll also receive a Victorious Lucian chroma if you finish above Platinum, corresponding to your final rank.

Players will receive their ranked rewards sometime between November 11 and December 10, so be patient if you don’t receive them immediately!

When does League of Legends Season 11 begin?

Season 11 doesn’t automatically begin when Season 10 ends. There’ll be a pre-season period of around two months where Riot tests the changes with the wider population, and players can play without fear of losing their rank.

Riot hasn’t exactly confirmed the starting date of League of Legends Season 11. However, a tentative date can be locked in for January 6, 2021. This is likely to be the launch of League Patch 11.1, marking not only the new year, but the new season.

The ranked season will then kick off shortly after, so you can start making progress towards your Season 11 ranked rewards.

Major League Season 11 changes: item rework, more

The big talking point of changes in League of Legends Season 11 is the item rework. Over half of the items available in the game will be reworked in the update.

On top of that, stats like cooldown reduction and critical strikes are being completely overhauled. The former is now being labeled ability haste, and will be rejigged to remove the 40% cap. Critical strikes will also be more widely available, as Riot aims to remove the RNG element.

There’s also going to be changes to minions as Riot tries to shift power away from the mid lane and into other roles, as well as unannounced changes that’ll be revealed in the coming weeks.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
