Apparently it will be as simple as joining your friend's high elo 3v3 or 5v5 team for a free Diamond forum badge + rewards, because there is no ingame tracking of "percentage of games played on the team" like WoW used to have.
You have to have been in the team before sept 1 -

" Players who joined a team on or after September 1 will also need to win five games with that team to qualify for rewards."

Does 'actively monitoring" mean going to twitch or own3d and watching one of the numerous pros doing elo jobs on stream?

Starting from today would hurt a lot of people who are on the border for various tiers, or who have let their ELO decay down to minimal, not expecting the new tier system
For Season 2, we've decided to use Top Rating for the final weeks of the season so that everyone could play as much as they wanted without risking rewards that they'd previously earned. The fact that this could happen in Season 1 is why many players tended to earn a tier and then just sit on their rating until the end of the season. This way they can keep playing whatever mode they like without risking anything.

As for using Top Rating retroactively, the numbers that we had were actually inaccurate because they were never reset between Season 1 and Season 2. So the number in your profile was actually your best lifetime Top Rating, and not your Top Rating from Season 2. We felt that the best compromise was to reset the Top Ratings and then use Top Rating for rewards at the end of the season.

These are amazing. I have a bad day whenever I lose ELO, now I know, it doesn't matter, my top rating stays the same. I love the rewards, the removal of an ELO number, EVERYTHING.
