After tonight, that 1353 will be gone forever. Your top rating will read whatever your elo is when the patch hits.

No, the matchmaker will still use Current Rating to decide your opponents. Top Rating will only be used for determining rewards and determining what medal to show on your profile.

GTFO. You should reward for TOP rating especially in cases of DECAY. This almost makes me want to never log into this game again. If you continue to feed the trolls and bads of this game just to make this a "better gaming experience" for them it will only be a matter of time before they players that make this game what it is begin to jump ship.
You got 1 month to get back up. I love this new system. It's much more friendlier then the old one. You don't know how much stress it gives you when you lose. This game is meant to be fun, not stressful.

Will the loading screen frames be visible in normal queue mode? The biggest reason I don't play ranked is because I try to avoid elitist personalities who use their rank as a means to demand obedience form their teammates. The existence of those, to me, feel like just one more way less-tolerant ranked players can tell casual players that they're bad.

In order to do this, we are resetting Top Rating for all players to their Current Rating
Can someone answer when would this happen? Next patch?

Is there any difference in the reward for a person in Silver I and Silver III?

ie. Same colour badge, different 50 elo bracket.

Do we keep old forum badges or are the new ones overwriting them? Would be neat to having a row of them in the future

What if someone did not start playing ranked until season 2? Is their highest rating still reset?

Just asking because my highest was ~1252 but my current is under 1100.
