2017 Ranked Season Ends November 7th

From the announcement site - "2017 Season Draws to a close"
"With just one more month left to rack up some Ws, there’s no time like the present to jump into ranked and earn rewards! 
2017 SEASON ENDS:   NOVEMBER 07 
2018 SEASON STARTS:   JANUARY 16 
This year you can earn a new Victorious skin for Graves, show off your end-of-season ranking, and get purrfect vision with a new Victorious ward skin. And, as promised earlier this year, we’re adding a small reward for fighting with Honor. 
The 2017 season ends November 7. The 2018 season starts January 16.

GOLD+
VICTORIOUS GRAVES + CHROMAS 
Victorious Graves, granted for finishing the season at Gold or above, comes with additional chromas depending on which queue you leveled up in 
The most-wanted outlaw in Bilgewater shows off years of skillful heists by wearing the finest regalia gold can buy. His shiny gilded gun and ceremonial draping will surely distract opponents long enough to land a well-timed Collateral Damage. 
BRONZE+
PROFILE INSIGNIA 
A new insignia below your summoner name gives you the opportunity to show off last season’s ranking 
We’re moving this flair from the border of the summoner icon (yes, this is something that exists) to front-and-center on your profile page. 
This memento will last for all of next season, unlike your dreams of finally earning a Victorious skin.
BRONZE+
ICONS AND BORDERS 
A fresh new set of summoner icons, one per tier/queue combination, are ready for your collection. Joining them are the traditional ranked borders for the loading screen 
You can earn up to three icons, one per ranked queue. Remember: Challenger in Twisted Treeline is still Challenger, no matter what anyone says!

SILVER ×2
VICTORIOUS WARD SKIN 
Climb to Silver in more than one ranked queue to get your hands on 2017’s Victorious ward skin 
We’re repealing and replacing the requirements for the Victorious ward and opening it up to folks who want to crush in multiple queues. While Victorious Graves is still locked at Gold, we wanted to spread rewards out to encourage your Silver V mid laner to actually use these things (for once). 
We’ve decided on a new, exciting way to reward great teamwork, shotcalling and resilience in game: All honorable players walk away from the season knowing they’re good people, because fighting with Honor is its own reward. 
Just kidding. Here’s what you actually earn: 
HONOR WARD SKINS 
Reaching Honor level 3 or higher at the end of the season grants you a unique ward skin based on your level
These ward skins have been significantly tested and researched, with our data demonstrating a 389% reduction in unsportsmanlike behavior.

FAQ 

  • When does the season end?
    • The 2017 season ends November 7 at 23:59 local time. A game has to start before 23:59 to count towards your final ranking. However, the final Challenger ladder standing locks at 23:45, so make sure your game ends by then if you’re chasing those top spots! 
  • When does the 2018 season start?
    • The 2018 season starts January 16, 2018. 
  • When do rewards hit my account?
    • All rewards arrive within one month of the end of season (some rewards may appear faster than others, so don’t worry if you don’t get them all at once). 
  • I don’t own Graves and I’m going to be Gold! Help!
    • If you don’t own Graves and you hit Gold+, we’ll unlock Graves alongside his skin for you. 
  • Are ranked borders queue-specific?
    • Yeah. 
  • Can I use my borders from previous seasons?
    • Nope, sorry. You gotta put in the time! 
  • Where can I learn about preseason?
    • You’ll find everything you need to know on the Preseason 2018 site. 
  • What happens to my rank in preseason?
    • Your rank won’t decay during preseason and you can still play through promotions and demotions (we’re turning rank decay off during preseason). When the new season starts, you’ll play 10 placement games and get seeded into a rank based on your MMR and placement performance. 
  • Am I eligible for these rewards?
    • As we announced in August, certain players are ineligible for this season’s rewards:
      • - Players with bans or chat restrictions active when the season ends.
      • - Players issued a ban of seven days or more after 8/22/2017.
      • - Players banned for boosting during the 2017 season.
    • Players who experience fraud-related or erroneous bans will still be eligible. 
  • What’s happening with physical Challenger rewards?
    • We heard your feedback on last year’s program. Quality, registration time, and shipping were all major pain points -- so we want to go back to the drawing board with physical Challenger rewards and make sure we can create something that feels good while also being practical to ship worldwide. We’ll have more info on this later this year.
