Will these elo borders all be used elsewhere in the site other than avatars at the top of guides? It would be pretty cool just to see the borders (without the elo title "GOLD" etc) on people posting in the forums/searching for guides :3

Dunno, we already have the elo badges in most posts, so is this necessary? Maybe it would be good for the front page where it shows recent discussion? *shrug*

EDIT: And blogs :P
Thanks to Minho for my sig!

I just think it'd be really awesome :) The badges are cool, yes, but the borders are just... even cooler. They just look so great ^^ Whoever thought of the idea, rock on! But yeah, if possible, it'd be great to migrate the borders to everywhere in the site - without the little banner thing that denontates the elo rank unless the colour difference between plat and diamond are too hard to distinguish.

i think it would make this site too elitist. all you want to do is rub it in other peoples faces that your better than them

As far as I know jhoijhoi has never been gold+ rating (sorry if I'm wrong) so I doubt that is her goal for showing elo borders. :P

It does add some elitism but at the same time the management feels that if you earn a good rating you should be rewarded for it, and it does add some weight to your comment. That doesn't mean you can't be successful without it, but we don't have to be angry that others have it and we don't. People have suggested it will make our users strive to be better to get a cool border on the site.

"if you earn a good rating you should be rewarded for it"
you are, in LoL. and you already have little icons showing the rating and hows gold and such, why do you need to make only the avatars of people with good rating pretty? because that's all it is, some get pretty avatars and others don't. and if you say that you want to put borders so this sites users become better then your being elitist, whats wrong with just being as good as you want to be? why aren't the little sword icons enough to show that you are gold? those let me know peoples ratings very well without rubbing it in. there small and informative

:/ As Mowen said, I have never been gold until this Season. And even then, I still have to get my 50 games up to verify my elo and receive the badge.

People receive these sorts of borders at Riot's official forums, why not here? I don't see a big problem with it :) You can still be a good player without having a border, so why does it matter if some people have borders and others don't?

I won't be able to get a border, myself, until I've played 50 games AND if I stay at 1500 elo.

because riot forums are directly related to the in-game accounts. also, the border doesn't show if your a good player or not, that is already done by those little icons very efective. what the border does is give some people pretty images and others not. its an elitist behaviour no matter how you look at it, its no longer about showing who has good elo or not (which i agree with) but its about only good players looking cool.

i hope you can understand what im saying, if not i can try writing in better english
