Do you have any plans to release information about the tiers earlier than when Season 3 goes live? I'd think that I'd be in the platinum tier even if it is relative to the performance of other players just because it is so early in the season and not as many people have been over 1850 by now as compared with, for example, near the end of Season 2.
With that said I still decided to roll the dice and ended up winning to get to 1863 - but now I have the same dilemma of whether to play or not play.
I have the same problem, I'm currently at 1512 elo and don't really want to risk playing more games and going on a huge random losing streak right before the league system is implemented. It worries me that current elo will be taken into account when we are sorted into leagues. If we could get a better idea what your current and top elo needs to be for you to be sorted into each tier, it would eliminate a lot of this anxiety and allow me to start playing ranked again.
Basically, as it stands right now I don't plan on playing any games until the league system is released. I have no idea how heavily current elo factors in when we are sorted into tiers, and I don't want to risk losing a few games and ending up missing the gold 5 cutoff.
