Splinterlands seasons are the heartbeat of the game. There is always one in session, and no sooner than one season ends, each and every player is grappling for a position in the next.
During these seasons players compete in Ranked Battles to earn Season Points which will allow players not only to rise in the ranks but also determine their Season Rewards at the end of the Season. Ranked battle Reward Points earned in both Modern and Wild battle formats contribute to a player’s Season Points.
Splinterlands seasons have various lengths. Some have been as short as 12 days, while other longer ones are 16 days or more. The end time of each season rotates so that players in different parts of the world can all have their turns to experience the end-of-season grind as the countdown ticks down to zero.
On each player's BATTLE page, there is always a universal countdown that shows the time remaining until the end of the current season, and the new season starts immediately when the current one ends.
When a player has passed the ranking points required to advance to the next League in either Modern or Wild battle format, they are given the option to do so if their Collection Power allows. If they choose to advance, they will receive the rewards of the higher League achieved, but they are also giving up the chance to go for the leaderboard in their previous League.
For example, some Gold League players may choose to stay in Gold and compete for ranking, even though they have gained enough points to advance to Diamond. They will not receive Diamond rewards and it will be a hard road, but if they can beat the top players in that league, they will win additional DEC Leaderboard rewards.
Placement in the next season is determined by the player's current league at the end of the season.
Note: The end-of-season rating reset will be applied separately to your Modern & Wild leagues.
The Season Rating Reset can be viewed respectively for Modern & Wild battle formats by selecting either Modern or Wild as the battle format and then opening the League page in the Splinterlands Battle page:
