Wow. I busted my ass this season to get to Gold and then they dump a bunch of rewards on Silver and Bronze this season. :S

Not too excited for Elise either, but hopefully I can snag a Platinum border and trim before the end of this season. No rewards for Diamond?

Awesome, that'll give me a goal for trying to get to Gold. Currently Silver 5, so there's a long way to go. Hopefully I can duo queue with a pal.

I'm getting Silver minimum this season now. I WANT a ward skin xD. Gold would be nice, but my MMR is only Silver 4 and somedays I have trouble besting all of them. Would probably help if I played the champions regarded as the strongest in the game, but that's beside the point. Good luck to all those planning to climb .

As of writing this, those still interested in grinding through the most painful times of their gaming career, you have 67 days until the end of the season. Good luck to everyone!

Diamond 1 and aside from a different coloured banner/border I get the same rewards as you, quit your whining

Bronze get nothing new this season than they did last season, by the way, Silver's get a ward icon which is suitable, if you've gotten out of bronze you deserve something to acknowledge a feat that has taken the sanity of many.

I feel like they should have focused more on the upper tiers (Platinum, Diamond and Challenger) but I guess this is the same thing they did as last year. I think a border is the best reward since it denotes your League. Gold really isn't special. Diamond and Challenger are, yet they're handed the same stuff as Gold.

Remembering that they're appealing to the masses. Iirc, at least in the old system, the top 25% were in silver or above. By appealing to the Silvers this time, they're appealing to a hell of a lot more people. Although, I do agree that P/D/C deserve more, if only slightly.

Remember that once you're in Gold V, you're in the top 10% of all ranked players of the game! I think that's deserving of a skin, honestly.
However, I do think there should be some extra recognition for those in Diamond and Challenger. Not sure what that recognition should be, though!

It's closer to the top 15-20% now because the League system inflated the higher Leagues.

There were no unique rewards for diamond or platinum any seasons, basically, you reach gold, you get the rewards.

Also victorious ward skins? Aw hell yeah!

I guess what I'm most upset about is player's getting a banner and border of their highest League in ANY queue. I'm ready for all the Bronze players with Diamond borders because they're on a 3v3 team. I feel like Riot should only display the border in the queue you received it in. Would avoid a lot of frustration and bullying that's inevitably going to happen.

I'm looking at you Morello, you son of a bitch.
I actually thought it did work this way. Your border only displayed in the gamemode you were in, whether its teams, soloqueue or 3's.

That is the current way it works out. Why they're changing it no one knows. I guess in the end it appeals to a large group of bad players and screws over the small group of good players. My guess is Phreak wants that Diamond border.
