No gold is waayy too easy to get. If it was like 1650 for gold then I would say yes.

They dropped the requirement 20 elo, while the elo range is much higher. Effectively gold is far easier to get now than it was in season one.

And yeah, gold was easy for many people, but since it was top 3% I wouldn't call that easy for the majority of people.

absolutely man. being top 10-5% is a huge accomplishment, and should be rewarded as such.

plus realize how few plat and gold players there really are. i mean cmon, out of hundreds of thousands of players ranked, theres like 15000 plat players. thats a pretty exclusive club, and its not easy to get to. it takes a rediculous amount of practice to get to 1800s, and i dont think that people that dont have the time to put into this game should be excluded from a cool badge


you earned gold. you deserve a badge

Depends on what these forum badges are intended to symbolize.

And silver was that last season. But Riot didn't give silvers badges. They should have, but they didn't.

i agree. its not easy to get to 1500 for most players. it takes a much higher understanding of the game and its mechanics to get there. there should be a badge

One thing that bugs me though is the way all those higher elo guys act, like if the people below them were just ultra bads that should just uninstall, i mean, even at 1100, you are about top 50%, so can't say that really, he is in the better portion of the player base. They are not bad, you are good, i mean, you got to top 5%. And stop saying blah blah people are still bad here, stop comparing their gameplay to pro teams that compete for the global cup. Their gameplay is not ''the acceptable line'', its the finest of the whole game.
