What percentage of players are in which tiers? Does anybody know the answer to this? What I want to know basically is how I compare to the overall LoL ranked population.

Bronze
Silver
Gold
Diamond
Platinum
Challenger

On the old Elo system, every 100 points had between 40% and 50% of the people in it from the previous hundred points. Diamond 1 has massive clamping, so I'm not sure of the exact numbers from there, but I'd imagine the spectrum hasn't changed much.

Challenger is capped at 50 players which, according to many players, was a mistake on Riot's part. I haven't investigated it enough to come to my own conclusion on the matter.

Assuming each Division is around 100 Elo, that would leave us with scores between 0 Elo at Bronze V and 2500 Elo at Challenger. These are my guesses as to how many players are in each Division/League based on my past data:

Diamond: 150, 100, 200, 300, 500
Plat: 800, 600, 1000, 2000, 4000
Gold: 5000, 4000, 7000, 11000, 15000
Silver: 15000, 12000, 15000, 19000, 24000
Bronze: 25000, 20000, 30000, 50000, 80000

I could be horribly wrong, but that's what I would expect the distribution to look like.

A good summary from my data in S2 yields that Plat is top 3%, Gold is top 10%, and Silver is top 25%. Adjust yourself based on which Division you're in.

That shows the distribution in the NA server from this season. Basically though about 45% of the players are bronze, and 41% of the players are silver. The remainder is split as 10% gold, 3% platinum, <1% diamond, <1% challenger.

Well seeing this makes me feel a bit less average at this game, but I still have a long way to go to improve while enjoying this.

This chart is 3 months old, the one posted in the OP is recent and far more accurate.

From their FAQ:

1. How does LolMatches work?
LolMatches works by gathering match stats sent by players that are running the LolMatches Client.
So I really doubt you can use their stats for much.
