Summoners!

Season One will conclude with our next scheduled downtime. We have some additional important updates for you!

We wanted to let you know we're updating our Season One reward tiers to better represent and reward the competitive gamers in the community. We think the new structure provides more players with a chance to achieve higher tiered status without compromising the exclusivity of each rank.

We made these adjustments based upon the percentage of our playerbase that we wanted to recognize at each tier.

The new ladder reward tiers are:

  • Platinum (Top 0.2%) - 1900 and above (3v3: 1700+, pre-made 5v5: 1750+): a framed summoner icon in platinum, a platinum banner in summoner profile, a platinum forum badge and a special skin for Jarvan IV
  • Gold (Top 3%) - Between 1520 and 1899 (3v3: 1490-1699, pre-made 5v5: 1500-1749) : a framed summoner icon in gold, a gold banner in your summoner profile, a gold forum badge and a special skin for Jarvan IV
  • Silver (Top 10%) - Between 1400 and 1519 (3v3: 1410-1489, pre-made 5v5: 1410-1499) : a framed summoner icon in silver and a silver banner in your summoner profile
  • Bronze (Top 25%) - Between 1249 and 1399 (3v3: 1249-1409, pre-made 5v5: 1249-1409) : a bronze banner in your summoner profile

As we enter Preseason Two, we will be performing a graduated reset of the League of Legends ladder based on player performance in Ladder Season One. The vast majority of players (97%) will have their Elo reset to between 1100 and 1300 rating, with top and bottom performers falling anywhere between 906 and 1490 rating. Ladder gains made during Preseason Two will carry over into Season Two once it begins.

Season One will conclude with our next scheduled downtime, so be sure to work on that ladder rank quickly!

Update: Even though we changed up our requirements to allow more summoners to achieve Platinum status, we haven’t forgotten those extremely high Elo players who’ve entered into the 2220 Elo echelon. In fact, no one will.

In addition to all the great awards Platinum players will receive, we’re creating a special section of the website to list the summoners whose Elo exceeded 2220 at the conclusion of the season!

Way to fail Riot.

Anyone and their mom can get 1900 ELO, and thus platinum, if you are anywhere decent in this game and invest a little time in it
And platinum is considered the highest tier reward in this game?
Better make some kind of masters (2050+) and grand-master league (2200+) if you are going to do this
Whahaha

while im happy for many people to get the jarvan skin, i feel that 1520 for gold is really a joke...not even talking about 1900 for platinum...so lol... all the poeple above 2000 must be really pissed off now...

If so many people are allowed to get platinum what value does it retain? think about the difference in value of a platinum framed icon when it is 1900 or 2222.. basically more than a hundred times as many people will run around with platinum now and the rarity and bragging rights of platinum will go down massively, and the exceptional players are not rewarded like they should be

The whole reward of platinum rating for this season is that people look up to you once they see that shiny platinum icon... which is worthless if its 1900+ and even 1700 in 3v3 or 1750 in 5v5.. these ratings are a joke!
