League of Legends to retire Prestige points in 2021

League of Legends is retiring the Prestige Points system in 2021.

Starting on July 2021, Prestige Points will be removed from League of Legends. Instead, the game will implement a new system through which players will be able to obtain exclusive and rare content. This new system will be revealed at a later date, but it doesn’t mean that prestige skins will be removed from the game.

There are still two more prestige skins coming out this year. These are Star Guardian Soraka Prestige Edition and a new Diana Prestige skin with a theme to be announced. Star Guardian Soraka will be available with patch 10.24 which is hitting the live server on November 25. Diana comes out later on December 9 with patch 10.25.

2020 had a number of Prestige skins, and players will have one last chance to buy them. On December 9, the end of year shop opens featuring all the skins from 2020. These skins will sell for 100 prestige points. The shop closes on January 28.

2020 prestige points won’t expire at the end of year, players will get until July of 2021 to spend the points. After that, the new system will be fully in place.

What prestige skins are coming out next?

While the thematic are yet to be announced, League of Legends already hinted what skins are coming out next.

Starting with Soraka on patch 10.24 and Diana on patch 10.25, these are the final prestige skins from season 10.

In 2021, the champions getting prestige skins are Fiora, Leona, and Lulu. An additional champion yet to be determined will have a Conqueror skin. The champion will be chosen based on the impact it had in pro play in 2020. Some of the options on the table are Graves, Nidalee, Syndra, and Ashe. These are some of the champions with the highest presence in the 2020 World Championship.
