As we approach the final weeks of League of Legends‘ ranked season, players are frantically trying to hit their desired ranks before the queues close up for the preseason. The ranked reward was recently revealed to be a shiny, new Victorious skin for Lucian.
If you want to pick up Victorious Lucian, all you need to do is finish in Gold rank or higher before Tuesday, Nov. 10, which is the end of the current ranked season. If you find yourself in a ranked game at 12:01am local server time, then consider that your final ranked game to count toward your ranked rewards.
But Master ranks and above will lock on Monday, Nov. 9 at 11:45pm local server time. This means if you’re trying to finally break into the upper echelons of your region, don’t leave your climb to the last minute—unless you enjoy the added pressure.
If you reach Gold or higher for the Victorious Lucian skin but don’t own the champion, he’ll be automatically added to your account when ranked rewards are given out. There are also additional rewards based on which rank you finish at by the end of the season.
If a player finishes in Platinum, for example, they get a special platinum-themed chroma for the Victorious skin. Each subsequent rank-up actually has a special chroma that echoes the same look of the corresponding ranked badges.
So if you’re looking to grab that beautiful Challenger rank armor for your Victorious Lucian, start grinding. The League of Legends Victorious Skin is a Limited Edition Season Reward Champion Skin, earned by players based on there highest tier/ranking achieved at the end of the season. A new Victorious Champion Skin is awarded to LoL Players every year for that season in the form of Season Rewards. Players will compete in Ranked Modes.
Victorious skins are special League of Legends skins bestowed only to players who have achieved Gold or higher ranks. They usually come in regal colors of blue, gold, and silver, the three shades of victory.
These skins are actually considered rare by many since they’re not available in the store and can only be obtained through end-of-season rewards. Once you miss a Victorious skin release, you will never have another opportunity to acquire it again (unless you’re Ekko and you can use Chronobreak in real-life).
Riot picks and gives Victorious skins to champions based on their impact on competitive play that year, according to an official blog post. There are ten Victorious skins so far, dating back as far as 2011.
