Top rating isn't set until you have a visible rating, so in that case your highest rating would still be Silver.

Why did you guys get ride of gold forum badges? Worked so hard this season to get gold and you change the rank system and get rid of gold forum badges.

Yes, it's win 5 games with the team in the appropriate queue.

If you created the team after September 1st, you will have to win one more game in each queue with that team.

well you still need to do something because it is ruining your game!!! A solution I think would work is mitigate elo loss only if someone on a team has a big enough gap in their level. The gap would have to be big enough to prevent someone from leaving late enough in the game when they know they are going to lose. I say make it like if someone is level 1-8 at the time of defeat then little or no elo is lost

How about making it so that the user that leaves gets double the elo loss or more?

Yeggs, what about the accusations that a Riot Red was a friend of an Elo Booster(Not talking about Tryndamere), and that the posts detailing the Elo Boosters involvement with the Red were Deleted, unlike the Tryndamere case where Tryn himself said he would suspend the booster?

Once the FAQ is fully fleshed out, we'll be translating it and posting it as a news post in other regions later this week.


SEASON REWARDS

When does the season end?

Season 2 will end with the patch thatís slated for November 6th. If the patch is moved back, the season will continue until the patch downtime.
I just wanted to be clear; so does that mean November 5th is the last day you can play rank in order to try and achieve the "end of season" rewards?

Also, if I joined a team after September 1st and they already have a gold for their top rating, but because I joined, I dropped them down to a bronze rating and win 5 times but it still isn't enough to bring it back up to gold; would I still get the gold rewards since I joined a team that got their top elo in the gold rank but are no longer sitting in gold elo and my 5 wins were all in the bronze bracket?

Any sort of reward for those of us who don't play ranked? Kinda like last year everyone got the Kayle skin, are you planning on doing something like this again?
