You say we get medals on our profile but what about the Summoner Icon frames? Do those get changed? Because I do not want to keep a silver frame on my icon for the rest of my league days...

And due to the addition of Diamond tier, all of the previous tiers are now easier to achieve. So anyone who had achieved a tier already will still be at least that tier after the update.
So i've been sitting on 1520 for a couple of months now because I don't wanna run into trolls and not get my skin for having gold. If I try to climb elo and it goes horribly horribly wrong would I still get all the gold stuff even if everything goes horribly horribly wrong. Judging by the people ive been getting into ranked games with it'll go horribly horrible wrong.

So um... what if someone just tries out ranked, gets carried to like plat elo, then falls back down where they belong. is he going to be playing with platinum people because that's where is highest rating is?

Blast, a reward skin I'd actually WANT. Probably no time to get me Elo high enough if I start now, especially considering the entire reason that I never touch ranked in the first place is because it sucks so much. Oh well, can't have everything.

Yegg, do you know why past highest score doesn't count?

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

To clarify about the top rating being reset to current rating I'll use myself as an example:

My highest rating was 1563 during this season and I'm currently 1438.


Because of the additions they are putting in today.

From this point on:

- Top rating is erased
- Your current rating now becomes your "new" highest top rating
- Rewards are given at the end of season 2 based on what your "highest top rating" from here to finish of season 2

Yegg, will this ranking system be maintained on Season 3? Most of the people will have less fear of playing ranked with Top Rating being the main argument.

Also, this system may be "dangerous" since there are some people who buy ELO, which is forbidden by the code. Are there some measures to counteract this?
