I'd like to ask one question: If I have played let's say 9 ranked games, will I be eligible for the new system, or do I have to play the placement matches normally, or will I have to play only 1 or 2, to fill the 10-win meter?

Is everyone trying for a Division or a Promotion Series going to be put in with others trying for the same system, or will we still be going against others playing a typical Ranked game? I'm worried that otherwise queue dodging will be too harsh because it is hard to justify not doing it when someone outright trolls just for the sake of it.

question...

1. no they dont "reset" cuz the elo system is changing

2. thats half of it... they are gonna take ur current elo and highest elo you gotten to and do some kind of equation and figure out what division and tier you will be placed ( they havent said if they are just gonna split it down the middle or how they are gonna figure it out. they are just gonna take your current and highest elo and put you in a division and tier based on that

Where will existing ranked players slot into the new system?

Theoretically if they place you based on current ELO, then everyone who is currently Bronze will become at minimum Gold, Silver will be Gold-Plat, and Gold and up will be plat and diamond, with the top 2% as challenger tier.

no cuz at first there will be no challenger tier. it will only be bronze , silver, gold, plat, diamond.

people have to fight from the start to get to challenger tier.
