Feels like everyone going to run around with that Jarvan skin next season. Not sure I like it... I thought it would be more rare.
Well given the circumstance that only 3 percent of the current players will get the skin, you wont see it that often.

It's nice I have gold now because I don't know if I would've been able to get it otherwise, which also makes it not feel like I actually earned gold, but this is just because I'm still used to what I think gold is supposed to be.

When the ladder was created Riot didn't know what percentage of players would be at what elo. I personally don't have an opinion on what good percentiles are for rewards to be given. However if 1520+ is truly top 3% then I think they should be rewarded with gold.*

When Season2 comes elo numbers will hold different importance depending on how the player base is so I will still be able to feel like I earned gold Season2 anyways (it will be more important than anyways since the game is getting larger, dominion released and soft elo reset should bring better MM).

Lastly I just wanted to say that while it is nice for Riot to reward the top echelon of pro players with a special skin or w/e, does it really matter to them? Pros play the game at Dreamhack or IEM for money, thousands of dollars if they win. That is the prize they get for being the top 0.1%. They are streamed on the main site to millions of players. I see no reason they can't release a special skin, but if I also wouldn't really care if I was playing in LANs if Riot didn't release some skin for me on a champ I might not even like playing anyways.

*I'm assuming this is based on people that have at least played ranked until out of their placement matches, rather than just total player base. I don't think anyone that hasn't finished their placement matches should be included in this number. Why would the total player base be included..?
