I've noticed some accounts have gold borders around their summoner icons and others don't. I was wondering why this is? I have a gold trim around my icon too and I'm not level 30 yet so it has nothing to do with ranked games)

Please don't get the 'gold trim' thing confused with the loading screen. I've been searching through threads about this topic and found some people have asked the same question I just did only to find people answering about the loading screen.

I'm next to positive that it means the player has reached a gold ELO in ranked matches. There is one for silver and platinum also.

Depends which icon you select. If you chose a different one with a different border, it would be the same color as you see on anyone else with that icon.

In other words, an icon's border isn't some special addon - it's part of the icon itself.

No, I've seen this too. On your friend's list, next to each name is their summoner icon. I have noticed that there's the tiniest golden border surrounding some icons. I have seen this before and double-checked it myself to see if that particular icon's default border is gold, and it wasn't.

Is this a bug, or is this intended? If it's intended, how do I get?

I've noticed that too. Some accounts have random gold borders even when another icon that's exactly the same does not have a gold border.

I've also noticed this and everyone that asks about it, like you've already said, gets the same response about the loading screen border. It has nothing to with ranked because I've only played a handful of ranked matches. There doesn't seem to be anything about it anywhere.

I know this was posted a while, but I was looking for an answer to this and it is strange that nobody real knows. I have a golden border around my summoner icon and I have never changed it since I created an account almost a year ago. So I feel like you obtain that border if you keep the first icon you pick or maybe an icon that you've had for a long time.
