So, let's say the team acheives gold in 3v3 and bronze in 5v5. Will all its members get both awards? Or do you have to win 5 times in a specific queue to get that queue reward?
You have to win five times in the appropriate queue with that team. So if you those players want to have both the 5v5 summoner icon and the 3v3 summoner icon, they'll each need to win at least ten games with the team overall.

Yes you do,

There is this special medal if you have played ALL 3 types of queues, and you get the lowest out of all 3 queues.

Riot please respond. You seem to be reiterating the same information to every idiot in here too lazy to read Magus' and Yegg's prior posts. This is the first time this has been asked in this thread.

Does it matter when they win the five games? Do they have to win the five games when they're already gold? Or would it be cheating if they won they games in silver or bronze?

We didn't use exact percentiles because we feel that it's more important that the requirements are consistent and easy to remember. But it's roughly:

Diamond - Top 0.05% to 0.1%
Platinum - Top 0.5% to 1%
Gold - Top 5% to 10%
Silver - Top 40% to 50%

I fail to see how this system is better than the current one. I honestly don't care about ELO boosting my main concern is how your top elo is the only elo that matters. This basically removes the competitive aspect of it unless you are a top player. I enjoy checking my friends ELO to see where he is compared to where I am. I am not talking about season 2 rewards I'm talking about season 3 progression.

So we HAVE to win 5 games in order to get the icon? On a different account, I'm 4-2 (in ranked 5x5) but enough to hit gold (1450+). Joined and played before Sept 1, but less than 5 wins (4-2). Will that account get gold rewards?
