As most of you already know, one of the rewards for reaching Silver rating or above in any queue will be a sparkling new border displayed during the loading screen (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-B7ky1Nr6Nlg/UJNQvnYLrUI/AAAAAAAAJiw/mhnhSZmfKA0/s1600/nnJfZ.jpg). While this may seem like a nice little touch to showcase your achievements during season 2, there is one aspect of it that merits being reconsidered.

• The original implementation:

Quote:
[...]a border on the loading screen of any game equivalent to the highest tier you reached in any queue.

• The second implementation:
Quote:
[...]these will now only show up when playing in the queue where you earned them.

Regardless of game mode the border trim will only be displayed to your allies, as we want to be very careful about influencing perceptions around the fairness of the matchup before the game begins.

• The current implementation:
Quote:
Based on feedback we've actually changed our mind about showing these in other queues. In ranked it will show the border you achieved in the same queue (solo, 3v3, or 5v5) and in other game modes your ranked solo border will be shown.

And as before the borders will only be seen by allies (regardless of mode or queue).

• Proposed Change:
What I would like to suggest is to go back to using the highest tier you earned in any game mode, except for the ones where the tied rank would apply. It feels somewhat arbitrary for the system to use your solo queue rank in, say, a Dominion or ARAM game.

A quick example - A random player that is Silver-rated in ranked 5v5, but Bronze-rated in every other queue. The proposed change would show his Silver-colored loading screen border on any game, except for Ranked 3v3 and Solo Queue, which is where Bronze would show instead.

Quote:
TL;DR: Make normal and custom games use the highest border tier you earned in any ranked queue as opposed to your solo queue's.

Yet another change deployed on the PBE (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-lYF4tNSj_jU/UJSbyXT3jiI/AAAAAAAAJmU/JJnpMgNWXgU/s1600/border.jpg), so they're still fine tuning the details about these borders.
