I made a post about this yesterday.
I was harassed as soon as our match began by my entire team for not having a border. I had chosen Graves as our third pick and our last pick, when we needed a support chose Katarina. No biggie I suppose, but once in lane Kat was cs'ing right along with me and I didn't say anything, HOWEVER, 2-3 people on my team started asking me if I knew how to CS etc. Nobody even cared that Kat had 50% of my CS because she had a border and I didn't. Would they ALL have made comments otherwise? No, maybe 1 or 2 nasty people a game but not 3-4, just because of a border. I am sitting at 12-5 atm this (pre)season and the more I win the more I realize I am almost always going to be the only one without a border. At the start of almost every game I come under some sort of scrutiny because of my picks after my teammates see I am borderless, although it isn't always nasty. Like when I pick Zilean as a support or Yi as my jungler. Those are champions I am comfortable with.
Yesterday I flat carried 2 gold borders and 2 silver borders with my jungle Yi. Felt good! That being said, the borders need to go.. I don't want to go up to any higher elo without a border. My suggestion would be to either
1) get rid of borders completely
2) show border of highest elo achieved (updating for this season also)
3) lower my elo to 900 so I don't have to deal with this
edit: These seasons last for one year. If I manage to shoot up even higher or just float around my current rating then this is what I get to look forward to all season.
