Though I agree that for normal 3s, your ranked 3s border should be shown.
By that time it had already decayed to 1700 lol. I can't blame Riot for it, it's just kinda unfortunate.

Yeah that decay is pretty brutal. Though I managed to climb from 1400 - 1850 in like a few weeks, so it was possible to get back elo loss by the end of the season.

I agree, I'm primarily a Dominion and TT player. It's not that I dislike SR, I just want shorter games. I got to gold in solo and 5's queue and just stopped there.

It's actually kind of funny to see Dominion games right now -- because it goes by solo queue, there's like 1 diamond player, 2 platinum players, 100 gold players, 3 silver players, and 4 borderless players. Would really make things look better if it used the highest queue for normals instead of just solo.

Bump because I agree, Showing silver even though I got gold in both other queues really sucks

In ranked 3s/normal 3s loading screens, ranked 3s border should be shown

In normal games/solo q games/ranked 5s games, the border shown should be the highest of solo q/ranked 5s.

If you're diamond in ranked 5s, intuition dictates that you deserve to have a border shown in normals/solo q and vice versa. Obviously there's a distinction between the two but ultimately it's the exact same map. My 2 cents =]
