Will I get xp credit for how much I've already played a champion?
We're not currently planning to do this. Because this is a new system, we want players to feel progress (and earn rewards!) based on how well they do and the champions they choose to play.

What goes into the grading system? How do you calculate it?
It's based on the champion and role that you just played in a game. So, for example, we look at Annie mid differently to Annie support. We take a series of performance metrics and compare how you do to all other players in your region in your champion / position combination. It is percentile driven - so earning a high score means you performed in the top x% of players on that champ in that position. The grade itself governs the point gains.

How many games will it take to level up?
We expect players to take 15-30 games to level through the first set of levels (1 through 5). We'll be unlocking additional levels later.

Is this going to feel grind-y?
This system is performance based - the quicker you master a new champion, the quicker you'll make progress.

At the same time, we want it to be accessible enough that all players can feel good about improving.

We're tuning this system so that you will be leveling up the set of champions that you really enjoy playing and getting meaningful feedback on your performance each game. The ceilings are intentionally set low for each individual champion to avoid making it feel like a grind.

Can you be demoted?
No demotions or decay is currently planned.

What other kinds of rewards are planned for the future?
We are going to see how people enjoy using the system and what they like about it before we finalize our future plans. We'd love feedback on this.

Will skins ever be a reward?
It's not something being considered right now, but ideas are explored for other ideas for unique rewards we think you guys might like.

Will this work on Dominion and ARAM? Will it ever in the future?
This is currently limited to SR.

Can the enemy team see the crests in-game or in the loading screen?
Not initially, but this may be revisited in the future.

Can other players see my grade at the end of the game?
No. These grades are for you and not something for others to be able to see. They will not available to 3rd party sites either.

Will the score account for AFKers?
Can confirm, AFKing will result in a bad score.
