I read this:

"Players were awarded with medals in their summoner profile based on their Elo at the conclusion of Season One. These medals are given as follows:

Bronze: Between 1250 and 1399 (3v3: 1249-1409, pre-made 5v5: 1249-1409) (Top 25%)
Silver: Between 1400 and 1519 (3v3: 1410-1489, pre-made 5v5: 1410-1499) (Top 10%)
Gold: Between 1520 and 1899 (3v3: 1520-1699, pre-made 5v5: 1500-1749) (Top 3%)
Platinum: 1900 and above (3v3: 1700+, pre-made 5v5: 1750+) (Top 0.2%) "

I'm level 25, when I start doing ranked games my elo in Normal games will follow me? or I'll be forced to start it on 1200?

Everyone starts off at the same Elo. Also, I wouldn't recommend hopping right into ranked when you hit level 30.

If you start ranked right after you hit level 30 your elo will be below 1200 guaranteed unless you have had some previous knowledge on other MOBA's. I recommend getting 400-500 wins before starting ranked. I started ranked right after hitting level 30 and now I'm paying for it. These guys don't even know how to cs. :/

I started right as i hit 30. I won 8/10 my first ten games getting carried to 1424 elo. Now i have a total of 146 ranked games in the books and ive climbed back up to 1149 even dropping down to 998 elo. And i currently have 50% win rate so i beleive i should be 50-100 elo higher but meh. Losing is easier than winning

I started ranked when I hit 30 and payed dearly. I went down to less than 600 elope dude. Now after a few hundred more wins I started ranked again tonight and I've won 6 out of 6 games today alone. Still, my ell is 726 and it's going to take quite a long time to get out. It's frustrating to try to climb because all you want is to get to a point when loosing a game doesn't matter much. Down here if I loose I'm going back to 700. Don't do it man the sunlight doesn'treach these depths.
