Does this include all the accounts gifted to pro players by riot?

Sorry, didn't notice this until today.

The accounts the pro players are currently playing on to practice for Worlds are more like Rioter accounts. The accounts did not exist beforehand, and given to them afterwards; they were created specifically by/for the pros and simply unlocked. Not exactly the same thing the OP of the thread you're quoting me from was asking for...

Although I did not handle these accounts personally so I don't know much more details about the specific pro player accounts beyond that, but I hope this clarifies the situation for you.

You probably shouldn't feed the troll, Zeph.

Was it really necessary to have them to ruin 30+ games just to get up to Diamond 1/challenger?

I'm quite sure they started at like diamond V level

EDIT: I thought this was only concerning the "barcode" accounts of SKT T1 etc.

Even if the OP wasn't serious, someone else out there might have had the same thought so it's best to address the concern regardless.

Were the accounts taken away from the pro players when they reached challenger? If so, that seems reasonable as a experiment to prove elo hell doesn't exist. If they get to keep the account with all the awesome skins. I don't think that's fair at all.

EDIT: Will the accounts be taken away after worlds?
