I am confused about the bronze/silver/gold/platinum tiers in ranked.

I've mostly been playing ranked solo queue for the past few month. I have about 260 solo queue ranked games, about 50/50 win/loss. Highest Elo:1260 current Elo:1100

Should I have a bronze/silver/whatever badge? Because I don't. When will I be put in a tier?.

Sorry if this is a super dumb question, but I just don't understand the system, since I have friends with about 10 ranked solo queue games who are in silver tier and have the silver badge/symbol in their profile.

*EDIT:
This thread might be better placed in general discussion maybe?
Mods feel free to move it.

Riot reset you highest elo to current elo, so you should have 1100 elo now which is bronze 1 tier in soloQ (take a look at this). Maybe you have a bug.

So you can say those bonus things goodbye if you are matched up with trolls and afk peeps at low elo?

Brilliant.

No, If you just get better with the game instead of raging at people. Your elo will go up to what you desreve.
