2015 Ranked Reward Summoner Icons

As we move towards the end of the 2015 ranked season, 2015 Ranked reward summoner icons are now on the PBE!  These will be distributed based on the rank tier you end the season in!

There is an icon for each of the three ranked queues - Solo, 3v3, 5v5 - for each tier. There are a total of  three sets of three Challenger icons as there are unique icons for challenger positions for 1-10, 11-50, and 51-200 for solo queue and 1-3, 4-15, and 16-50 for 3v3 & 5v5 teams.

2015 Ranked Reward Loading Screen Borders

As we move towards the end of the 2015 ranked season, the loading screen frames & ranked borders have been updated!

As previously announced, the frames now also include division markers to the left and right of ~where summoner names are.
You will receive a loading screen border based on the tier and division you end the season in on 11/11!

Silver Division 5 - 1
Gold  Division 5 - 1
Platinum  Division 5 - 1
Diamond Division 5 - 1
Blue Side, Red Side, Master, Challenger.
Here is the unaltered asset sheet including all the loading screens, with division 1 at bottom and five at top.

Vision Changes - Ward "Rubble"

After killing a ward, "rubble" now remains there for a short duration [not sure how long, as of the 11/13 update I've had some disappear in about  ~5 minutes while others in 30 seconds to a minute]

The blue circle represents a friendly ward that has recently been destroyed and the red circle represents an enemy ward that has recently been destroyed.


All-Star Summoner Icon Emblems

Similar to the icons from the 2015 World Championship teams, the new TEAM ICE AND TEAM FIRE All-Star team summoner icons include new emblem emotes.
Just like the 2015 WC summoner icons, equipping either of these new icons makes your mastery emote key (control + 6 by default) display the appropriate team's emblem.

TEAM FIRE:

TEAM ICE:

Here's a video of the two new emblems in action:

For reference, here are the TEAM FIRE and TEAM ICE icons that were added in an earlier patch this cycle.
