Medieval Twitch & Grey Warwick Honor 5 Chromas

Here's Riot Sapmagic with details on upcoming chromas for Honor 5 players who own Medieval Twitch and Grey Warwick:
"Hey everyone! Ed “SapMagic” Altorfer here to give you an update on Honor rewards for 2019. If you’re an honorable player and you’ve been around a couple years, you probably already earned both of the exclusive Honor 5 rewards: Medieval Twitch and Grey Warwick. We don’t want to leave you hanging, so this season we’re adding chromas for these skins to the reward lineup as a way of recognizing the most sportsmanlike players. 
Going forward, if you already own both Medieval Twitch and Grey Warwick when you hit Honor 5, you’ll get a chroma for both skins and a random emote or ward skin. On the other hand, if you haven’t earned both skins yet, you’ll unlock one of them just like before. 
With the season reset, it’ll be a few months before players climb back to Honor 5, so we’ll be back later in the season with a proper debut for the new chromas. If you have questions or feedback, feel free to hit us up in the comments below. Otherwise, good luck in your placements and we’ll see you on the Rift!"

What’s New in Ranked 2019 

Check out all the new ranked changes this season with Riot Xaafira:
"Ranked 2019 kicks off with a new look and a few upgrades. New tiers, new rewards, and a position rank preview join your pursuit to the top. The competitive season begins on January 24. Here’s everything you need to know.

Placement Games 
This year you’ll get a provisional rank after your first placement game. Your provisional rank shows where you’ll start the climb and updates after each placement game. Provisional ranks are only visible to you until you complete placements. You can’t lose LP during placements, so your provisional rank can only go up. Wins earn accelerated LP and you skip through promos. After eight placement games in a position (ten games in Flex queue), you’ll get a starting rank. New accounts get seeded at the bottom of the ladder with a fresh opportunity to climb. 
Splits & Rewards 
There are three splits this season. Over the course of a split, you’ll earn Split Points for wins to unlock split-specific rewards to show off your rank in and out of game. Split Points reset after each split. There’s no break between splits, and playing games over multiple splits increases your rewards. Splits will last about three months each, the first ending in mid-April. 
Ranked Armor evolves to reflect your current rank and achievements earned through Split Points. Split Points upgrade your armor, so even if you’re 100+ games in Silver IV, your wins shine sterling. End-of-season rewards aren’t affected by Split Points, and you can still expect to sell your soul for a Victorious Skin.
Position Ranks and Position Rank Preview 
Position ranks are live in Korea and North America only for the first Ranked split. Position ranks give you a rank and matchmaking rating per position. With different ratings for each position, you won’t be punished if you get autofilled or branch out from your one-trick Draven to show Riven some love top. 
Crushing it one position can help you make gains across all of them. After each game, LP splashes into the other positions you’ve completed placements for, reflecting your overarching performance. Loss streaks cause negative LP splashing, so even in an off-position, playing to win matters. 
Following the preview in Split 1, every region will have the same Ranked system. We’re tracking both position ranks and single ranks globally to make the swap at the start of Split 2. Send us your feedback throughout the preview and see our devs go deeper on position ranks
Tiers & Divisions 
This season welcomes two new tiers, Iron and Grandmaster. Every tier now has four divisions. With fewer divisions and more tiers, your rank more accurately reflects your skill and improvement. The first new tier, Iron, starts below Bronze. The second new tier, Grandmaster, sits between Master and Challenger. GG Bronze 5.
Master+ 
We want reaching Master+ to feel like a super meaningful achievement. But the huge difference in number of players per region meant the accomplishment wasn’t universally comparable. We’ve adjusted Master+ to equalize this difference so top players across regions can play in tiers matching their skill level. You’ll see larger or smaller groups of Master+ players by region. 
In Master and above your position ranks collapse into a single rank. Demoting from Master reinstates position ranks. Upgraded visuals boldly point out when you are promoting and demoting in Master and above. 
GLHF on your climb."

Learn More: Spring Split Watch Missions


Here's Riot Katana with details on Spring Split watch missions:
"Esports Watch Missions Are Underway! 
Now that the 2019 Spring Split is in full swing, we wanted to give you an idea of what’s in store for esports watch rewards. As a reminder, both live games and VODs from the current Spring Split will activate rewards when you’re logged in to watch.lolesports.com or watching on the League Friends App. At this time we are not able to grant rewards for watching rebroadcasts. You must watch at least ten minutes of a game for it to count toward missions. 
Each week, you’ll be able to earn small rewards for watching games which can stack up to bigger ones throughout the split. Keep tuning in to unlock an exclusive Teemote that won’t be hitting the store! Here’s a full rundown of the missions you can expect. 
Starting Mission:
Weekly:
Split-Long Achievements: 
These achievements won’t sit in your client’s active mission log to avoid cluttering up the list for months on end, but any player who completes the very first mission (“Let the Games Begin”) is eligible to complete them. You can check your completed missions in the missions log for now; soon, we’ll show the number of watch missions you’ve done during Spring Split on the rewards hub as well."
