In World of Warcraft Arena it was known that the top .05% of players got gladiator, Which was like 2500+ depending on what server.

Starcraft has similar percentages based on your rating.

Do we know this games rating? If you are say 1500 ELO do we know what percentage of players are 1500 and above?

1500 is about 3% (+/- 4%) of the playerbase

The deviation is a large amount because riot for whatever reason doesn't want to give us numbers about how many people play. 1500 is 12k~ people 1200 is 152k~ people

IIRC Over 1200 is the top 25%... So that's 150k people. Which would mean about 600k people play ranked. Top 6000 people are around 1600 Elo I believe.

150000 are 1200+

25% only make it to 1200 plus

So there are about 600k Ranked players.

Top 1% is 600 people

That is about 1930 Elo as of the last 15 seconds.

1% of 600,000 is not 600
