Can we change the "Medals" a person achieves at a certain amount of Elo?

As of right now I stand at 1579 Elo with a Silver Medal, which to me is kinda like "wtf?" because in my honest opinion, 1579 elo is pretty hard to get. Looking from the Ladder Rankings, I'm at the top ~2.5% of players who play Ranked games.

I'm just wondering if they're gonna change the titles of the Elo brackets to be a bit more accurate in comparison with the population, rather than achieving flat numbers, such as 1500 Elo.

Idea:
Bronze Medal: Lower 0-50% of all players in Ranked Games. (0~1200 Elo.)
Silver Medal: Top 25%-50% of all players in Ranked Games. (1200~1350 Elo)
Gold Medal: Top 10%-25% of all players in Ranked Games. (1350~1450 Elo)
Platinum: Top 10% of all players in Ranked Games (+1450 Elo)

What do you guys think?
(Having the Elo Medals based on % Deviation, rather than Elo Numbers)

lol @ Downvotes?
Being at the top 10% of the player base in ranked games, +1450 Elo isn't good lol?

You're that high % because Elo decay stops at 1400.

Also, terrible idea with those numbers.

0-1200

Being Gold right now means being 1600 Elo, roughly the top 2% of players in the game.
2 out of every 100 people. Pretty small tbh...
