League of Legends patch notes: 13.1 update brings Ranked split changes

League of legends patch 13.1 is here, as Riot games changes how the Ranked mode works in the MOBA while ushering in many Champion changes

The League of Legends patch notes for the 13.1 update are here as Riot Games brings its flagship MOBA into the new year. Alongside the update comes a new season of LoL and the start of a new ranked climb; a Jax update; mythic shop rotations; changes to the refund token system; and much more.

For starters, we’ve already broken down all the League of Legends ranked changes starting in Season 13, including the split being divided in half. You can also get caught up with the League of Legends patch 13.1 preview as well, to make sure you’re up to speed with the changes to Yuumi and top laner Aatrox.

LoL patch 13.1 Competitive Updates

So, the new Split 1 starts with patch 13.1, which sees ranks being reset. You get ranked rewards for Split points, where you earn ten for a win and six for a loss. The promotion series has been reduced too, with it going from a best of five to best of three matches, while the restriction of duoing in ranked solo/duo with an MMR of Masters or above is disabled until patch 13.3.

Refund tokens have also undergone a change in LoL, with every player starting 2022 with a maximum of three tokens. That said, the complexity Riot has faced with these tokens means that as of update 13.11 later this year, refund tokens will be entirely removed.
