New Season Starts
Season 13 will start after the maintenance on April 16th, 2021. Please check the detailed info below:
Players’ initial tier in Season 13 will be based on their final tier in Season 12 according to the season rules. Tier inheritance rules have been altered due to the adjustments made to the Challenger tier and higher in Season 12.
Players whose highest tier in Season 13 reached Gold or above will get the avatar frame for the corresponding tier. But the Superstar frame will only be granted to players who are still in Superstar tier at the end of Season 13.
After Season 13 starts, players who participated in at least 60 5v5 matches and had an average punishment (punished matches / total matches) of less than 0.025/match in Season 12 will be granted a Season 12 exclusive skin for Kyuumei Neko, Art of War: Ninja Cat.
