Basically your Top Rating before today means nothing.

Wow, a lot of you seem confused about the top rating reset. It's not a bad thing. Let me explain.
This just means that if right now you're 1520 (exactly gold Elo), but your top rating is 1700, it will drop down to 1520. While you won't be able to brag that you were once 1700 (the season is gonna end in 5 weeks so who even cares), starting from right now you can drop to 200 Elo and still get the gold reward at the end of the season. They're resetting it to your current Elo so it gets frozen, to keep it "safe". If you drop, you're ok. If you go up, you're even better. You dig?

Under the new system, everyone who has finished their provisional games is at least Bronze, so as long as you're level 30, you can earn some of this stuff just by trying out Ranked.

It might not be immediately clear but 850 isn't the new requirement for Bronze. All ratings qualify for Bronze. 850 is just the cutoff for Bronze VI, which gives you an upgrade to the look of your profile medal.

So if I have a platinum rated team... does that mean everyone in my team will get the plat rewards?

Yegg, with this new tier system, are you going to be obscuring peoples' individual Elo ratings and just referring to them by their specific tier?
