League of Legends preseason 2022 was released on Nov. 16 introducing new updates and changes to the game. With Season 12 just around the corner, here is when preseason 2022 will end.

With the drop of preseason 2022, Riot Games brought in big changes to League of Legends. In Patch 11.23, players have been able to play with the addition of new items, two new drakes and objective bounties. Along with these new features, Riot reworked several components in the jungle and updated many items in the game.

Riot also introduced a new Inspiration keystone rune into the game: First Strike. First Strike ultimately gives the player an advantage when one strikes an enemy champion first.

Its passive gives the champion five gold as well as First Strike after dealing damage or applying a crowd control effect within the first 0.25 seconds of champion combat. First Strike causes all post-mitigation damage dealt to champions to deal 10% bonus true damage.

As League of Legends players are eager for the start of Season 12, preseason 2022 will most likely carry through the rest of November and December. This gives Riot time to make any changes.

Based on previous season arrivals in League of Legends, players can expect the end of the preseason and the start of Season 12 sometime in the first two weeks of January.

This preseason has been a little different as Riot had given preseason 2022 an extended time on PBE in order to make any fixes before its release date on Nov. 16. With the new big changes to the game, this was expected.
