ImageThe Season Two World Championship is approaching, and with it the end of the competitive season on October 23, 2012. This season, Riot is offering exciting rewards, such as new summoner icons, loading screen borders, forum badges, profile banners and a stunning skin.

Firstly, there are some appealing changes on the ladder and rating system, that will make the summoners' path to the ending a lot more rewarding. The Mid September Patch also brings improvements to the ranked play. Furthermore, Season Three will bring new changes and improvements, for everyone's benefit.

The Changes

・ Season Two rewards will be based on the players' achievements between now and the end of the season, which is why once you've received a tier, it remains yours, and playing games can only help you out. To make this possible, Riot is resetting all players' Top Ratings to their Current Rating and will be using Top Ratings to determine end-of-season reward tiers.

・ A new tier is being added, Diamond being at the top, and the other tiers have expanded in order for everyone that becomes ranked to qualify for a tier and the corresponding rewards. Players joining a team after September 1 will still need to win 5 games with that team in order to qualify for rewards.

・ The medal art on the summoner profiles have been upgraded, each new tier unlocking an awesome new medal.

・ Tiers will now be subdivided into rating "ranks", as seen here. These ranks will now help you know how close you are to moving up to the next tier. Also, moving up a rank enhances your summoner profile medal.

The Rewards

Bronze tier
・ Bronze summoner icon for each queue (3v3 team, 5v5 solo, or 5v5 team) in which you are Bronze tier

Silver tier
・ Silver border on the game loading screen
・ Silver summoner icon for each queue in which you are Silver tier

Gold tier
・ War Hero Janna skin
・ Gold banner trim in your summoner profile
・ Gold border on the game loading screen
・ Gold summoner icon for each queue in which you are Gold tier

Platinum tier
・ Platinum forum badge
・ War Hero Janna skin
・ Platinum banner trim in your summoner profile
・ Platinum border on the game loading screen
・ Platinum summoner icon for each queue in which you are Platinum tier

Diamond tier
・ Diamond forum badge
・ War Hero Janna skin
・ Diamond banner trim on your summoner profile
・ Diamond border on the game loading screen
・ Diamond summoner icon for each queue in which you are Diamond tier

In conclusion, each summoner that participates in ranked play will end the season with a summoner icon showing their work. The higher the rating, the prestigious the awards! On top of that, enterprising individuals who compete in multiple queues will accrue a collection of summoner icons – one for each queue. Finally, summoners who earn ratings in all three queues will unlock an exclusive fourth summoner icon based on their lowest rating between the three.

Keep in touch for sneak peeks at the champion skin, badges and other goods Riot has prepared for you these weeks!
