So is this special summoner icon separate from the other rewards?
Yes, this is a special icon just for players who have played in all three queues: Ranked Solo, Ranked 3s, and Ranked 5s. If you were Gold in all three, you'd get a Gold icon, but if you were Gold in two of the queues and Bronze in the third, you'd only get a Bronze icon here.

"Season 2 rewards will be based on the highest rating you achieve between now and the end of the season. Once you’ve achieved a tier, you’ll have it for good, and playing more games can only help you out. In order to do this, we are resetting Top Rating for all players to their Current Rating and will be using Top Rating to determine end-of-season reward tiers."


So if I've previously hit gold in ranked 5s, but don't play between now and the end of the season, we're still locked into gold? (I don't think I can get most of the people on the team to play by then).

im a little confused does that mean we can't go below our current elo

This really bums me out. Why not have our elo jump up to our top rating instead?

So my elo right now is 1280. So lets say I go on a losing streak, and drop to 1000. Will my badge reflect my elo of 1280 or 1000?

So I am currently 1550. After the patch, will my highest be 1550? And the rewards are based on Top rating, so will I be able to say be 500 elo currently and get gold rewards?

So if i'm bronze in 5v5, and gold in solo queue, my special icon will be bronze?

You say we get medals on our profile but what about the Summoner Icon frames? Do those get changed? Because I do not want to keep a silver frame on my icon for the rest of my league days...
