Lets say you played on a team over 5 times but you left it before September 1. Then you rejoin the team AFTER September 1... will you have to still play 5 more games to get the ranking?

Oh thank god!

When I originally read that part, I read it as "Sucka you have gold 3v3 and gold solo, but your team is silver so you get silver rewards not gold"

its strange a little because players who just reach lvl 30 will have instant silver badge instead of bronze like in season 2. Starting ELO should be decreased too i think.
I agree with this.
Lots of people will just do placements, probably go 5-5 if they aren't totally useless, and get free silver.

I'm 670 Elo right now. That's deserving a stern scolding, not a pat on the back from Riot along with some e-goodies. I know I'm bad, don't patronize me with these "tiers" of bronze. There is no reason to reward the bottom of the barrel for just existing.
Buddy, it's obviously do you and your "special" friends can feel "special".

Everyone else realizes that bronze rating will mean squat from now on.
Basically the badge for elo hell.

Hmmm, I only see a Gold or Higher Skin.... Is there not going to be a skin just for playing ranked this season like the Kayle one last season?

Question that I don't believe has been answered!

If you join a team before september, and that team is say gold or whatever, does it matter at all how many games you played with them? Be it 1 or 1000?
From what I am reading the 5 game requirement applies only to people who joined on/or after sept 1st?
