End of Season 6 – LoL 2016
 

*This article is continously updated. Updates can be found at the bottom of the page.*

Last updated: 5th of October 2016 - Season end date is the 7th of November at midnight. Scroll to the bottom to see this update.

8th of November 2016 Update - Season 6 in league of legends has officially ended on ALL servers. When ranked is back up pre-season starts.


Despite the fact that Riot only gives their players a few days’ notice when a new season is about to start, they are good at letting us know far in advance when a season is about to end. They will generally give us plenty of notice so that players can rush for the division they need in order to receive the ranked rewards they have aimed for during the rest of the ranked season.
 

Season 6 started the 20th of January 2016, with only a few days’ notice. Luckily a lot of players have in the past aked when a season ends in League of Legends, and to avoid mass outrage and complaints about rewards, Riot generally gives about a month’s notice for when a LoL season ends. The last 4 years the season has ended in November, and it is safe to say it will most likely be the exact same date this year. We are expecting to see an announcement with the exact end date of season 6 sometime in late September or early October.
 

When does season 6 end in League of Legends? The most likely answer is the 11th of November 2016 (EDIT - this end date has been edited to the 7th of November). Of course, Riot has in the past extended a season, but it happens very rarely and if you look at the end dates for the last 4 years they have all been in November. We can say with outmost certainty that season 6 will end the 11th of November, just like season 3, 4 and 5. It is worth nothing that season 4 was supposed to end in October, but was pushed back 11 days due to server instability and a general plea from the player base about extended play time to reach the ranking they needed to receive their rewards as many had not been able to play when they wanted due to extended queue times and server maintenance.
 

Many thought it was very strange that Riot had decided to end the season in October, when both previous years the season ended in November (season 2 ended November the 12th and season 3 ended November the 11th), but they must have had their reasons. Either way, they did not manage to end the season when they had planned, and will probably in the future stick to the same date since that has been the trend for the last few years.

What happens when season 6 ends?
 

When season 6 in League of Legends comes to an end, we will first be notified by Riot. Shortly after there will most likely be a new patch coming out, although the biggest patch of the year will often come a few weeks after the season ends. Servers will go down for a few hours and when they are available again pre-season has started and ranked rewards will slowly be handed out throughout the servers to all players.

 

Pre-Season
 

Pre-season is what comes after a season in LoL ends. It is when Riot feels comfortable testing out big changes and claim to take the feedback from players seriously (we have seen very little evidence of them actually listening, but that is another story). The elo you gain during this 1-2 month period does not count towards ranked rewards, but it is still worth noting that whatever MMR or rank you gain during this time, you will keep some of it when the next season start. When season 7 starts in LoL there will be a soft reset, meaning that you will become unranked but your MMR will still reflect where you were before the reset, so if you were platinum in pre-season you will place higher in season 7 than if you were gold or silver. Due to this fact, we encourage all players to try reach the highest ranking possible during pre-season so that you can get a great start when the next season starts.
 

Another thing that’s good about pre-season is that elo decay is removed. You don’t have to worry about losing your season 6 rank if you don’t play. That being said, you should still try to climb the ladder so you can place higher after your 10 placement games in the next season.
 

 

Ranked Rewards

Ranked rewards are sent out during the first few days of pre-season. In the past it has taken up to a week before everyone get their rewards, so if your friends have received theirs, but you haven’t, don’t worry! Give it a few days and you will be sitting on yours as well! Check out what you can get for your League of Legends season 6 rewards.
 

If you need help getting the best possible rank rewards, check our information on the service called elo boost. You can also click on the boosting tab on top of our page for more information or to order. It is safe, fast and 100% anonymous, and we boost all the way up to challenger. Already we have over 3 million accounts boosted since season 1, so you can feel justified in taking advantage of our services, after all, most other people do as well.


 

Conclusion
 

The League of Legends season 6 will end the 11th of November 2016 and season 7 will start probably around the 15th – 25th of January 2017.
 

We will continue to keep this article updated with the latest news, so if there are ANY changes in the date you will see it at the bottom of this article.

 


 

Updates
 

                                  league of legends 2016 updates season 6

APRIL 2016 UPDATE: None so far, season 6 in League of Legends is still expected to end the 11th of November 2016.
14th of April Update: People are still asking us "When does season 6 end in LoL", "are there any set dates yet". The answer is still no. As long as there are no new announcements from Riot we can all be quite sure that season 6 in League of Legends will end the 11th of November 2016. 
10th of June 2016 Update: Season 6 in League of Legends is still predicted to end the 11th of November 2016. With Riot's recent announcement that Solo Queue will not be coming out after all, there is no reason why Season 6 should be delayed. As soon as we have a confirmed end date we will add it to this newspost. In the mean time we will do monthly or bimonthly updates just to confirm that Season 6 ends the 11th of November 2016.
13th of July 2016 Update: When does season 6 end in League of Legends? Answer: 11th of November. The date is pretty close to being 100% confirmed, but we are keeping our ears to the ground and will update you with ANY changes. So far Riot has been VERY predictable in when they close each season, and season 6 should be no difference. League of Legends is on track for season 6 and we see no reason to plan for any delays, unless Riot decides to release a patch note last minute. In that case, we may see a few days delay. 
26th of July 2016 Update: Still looks like our prediction holds true. Season 6 ends the 11th of November in League of Legends. If there are any new rumors concerning end of season or Riot announces anything official we will update it here!
28th of August 2016 UPDATE: There has been some updates in regards to the 2017 ranked season, most noteworthy the SOLO/DYNAMIC Queue changes. These fall perfectly in with our prediction with dates for season end, seeing as the updates will most likely be launched during pre-season (possible only on the public beta servers) and modified to work when season 7 starts. We are still constantly asked "When does season 6 end in League of Legends" and the answer seems to stay the same: Season 6 will end the 11th of November 2016. We will of course update the thread as soon as Riot releases a firm date, but there is no reason to believe the date will change, seeing as it has started the 11th of November the last few years. 

 

 

league of legends season end

 

16th of September 2016 UPDATE: In a post about season 6 ranked rewards, Riot just announced that the season 6 in League of Legends will end early-mid November, which confirms our predicted end date for the 11th of November. Why change the date now, when it has ended the 11th (or the 12th) of November for the last 4 years? Everyone should expect season 6 to end the 11th of November in League of Legends. Stay tuned for more updates!

 

5th of October UPDATE: Riot has officially announced that the League of Legends season 6 will end the 7th of November, or - more accurately, 00:01 the night of the 8th of November. So, if you havent already, hurry up and secure your rewards today! LoLBoost is staying open for orders until the day the season ends and if October/November 2016 is anything like last year, we will complete at least 15 000 orders during this last month!
