Good questions! Parts of this system will be maintained, but we also have a lot more improvements and changes in the works for Season 3.

As for buying Elo, we're going to be actively monitoring this and we're willing to remove rewards or issue other penalties if we have evidence of this or any other methods of scamming the rewards.

Ah ok thank you for explaining it. The wording is a bit unclear. Now to go play ranked

yegg you are confusing me...you say you are reseting your top rating to your current elo and that will be used to give out prizes...but then you say" exactly thats why we are implementing this!!! you keep your gold prizes locked and you can just keep playing ranked with any fear!

if the starting elo is 1200, everybody gets silver badge who dont play ranked? thats still unfair if a person starts at 1200 elo and loses one match, he/she will still have 1150+ qualifying for silver lol..

Ok let me get this straight,
My top rating: 2070
Current: 2012
When this patch comes into play is my current elo going to be 2070? Or is my top and current both going to be 2012?

Yegg can u plz answer
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...

You have to complete your Placement Matches, which could put you anywhere from 800 to 1600 depending how they go.
