League of Legends 2018 Season Next Week

Riot announces the 2018 season for League of Legends will get underway on January 16th. Here are the details:

As in previous seasons, your rank will be soft-reset at the start of the season: Your new rank will be based off of both your existing MMR and your performance in 10 placement games.

In Challenger tier, were removing the solo-only restriction in Ranked Solo/Duo. We saw that Challenger players were facing Master tier duos pretty regularly, which ends up making the queue less competitive overall (despite the original intention back in 2016), and also punishes duos on the upper echelons of Master for winning too hard. Well be monitoring how much this impacts the health of the queue over the coming weeks.

In addition to your tier, ranked rewards will have a requirement of Honor level 2 or above at the end of this season.

Like ranked, Honor resets with the season start as well. Honor level 3, 4, and 5 players get a scaling head start, and you can learn all the details over here. After that, its up to you to fight with Honor on your way up the ladder.

2018s Honor rewards start at Honor level 3.

and more
When the new season starts, you can once more earn Hextech chests for each champion by getting an S- or higher champion mastery rank in-game.

You're definitely gonna want to do your placements early and stay Honor level 2 or above so you can participate in our new tournament experience, Clash.

I assume like any competitive game it is more about how difficult your opponents are. You want to be "the best!" And as I understand it, getting to the top levels is not easy.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

My question is how do the players not get burnt out on this game?

After about the 100th game it becomes rather pointless if you ask me.
