Last week, we temporarily disabled ranked queues and ranked decay so players wouldn’t lose LP while ranked was down. Ranked decay will be re-enabled return on July 27 at 12:00PM PDT in all regions.
The time that’s passed will still count against your inactivity period when decay is re-enabled, so if you’ve taken a break, make sure to play a game before July 27 if you want to avoid the LP penalty. If you’ve been playing consistently, this won’t affect you at all.
Ranked decay refresher:
Bronze, Silver & Gold:
There’s no decay in solo or team queues for these tiers.
Platinum & Diamond:
Solo and team queues:
After 28 days of inactivity in a particular ranked queue, you’ll be hidden from the standings in your league. You’ll also lose LP depending on your current tier. Every seven days thereafter, you’ll lose LP until you play a match in that queue particular.
Master & Challenger:
Decay sets in after 10 days of inactivity to ensure competition continues at the highest echelons of League.
Decay occurs after 28 days to account for the difficulties of managing five (or more) player schedules.
