What is the difference between League, Ranked and Normal games in these new system?
How do they work together?
Ranked and League will be two different queues?

League and Ranked are the same thing. The old ladder structure (the singular ranked list of everyone that plays ranked LoL, sorted by Elo) is now going to be replaced by Leagues of similarly skilled players.

Normal games will continue to be exactly the same as before.

If anything you will feel more accomplishment than ever knowing that the system challenged you to prove you should move up and you were able to answer that call by winning a best of 3/5 series.
I don't want a medal more then a measuring stick. Ya sure some people like medals. I like to see how well I'm doing. I have always given my medals/trophies away. And to be honest I hate the stupid ribbon on my icon.

People stop honoring me I don't want to be recognized I just want to win.

Maybe I'll troll like 50 games in row tell the tribunal takes it way oh wait I guess I'll just get back once I start playing for real again. Make it so I can you know hide my ranking/rewords I don't need other people to praise me I'd rather they just played me not knowing.

The only problem for me is that i'm in the military and i get deployed for 3 to 4 months at a time and won't be able to play rank. With me being gone that long and losing some points kinda sucks on my part. Was wondering if you guys can think of any ways around that. Like put a think to suspend your account for x amount of days/weeks/months so you won't lose rank or penalties.

That gave me the chills, and I don't know why

Are the division and promotion matches consecutive? Or can you just play one, go eat dinner and watch a movie, come back a few hours later and play another match in the best-of-three/best-of-five (like ELO placement matches)? Or is it like competitive play where you play games until there is a majority winner? (This might mean 3-4 hours of consecutive play).
