this is Aachie.
I just reached Gold for the first time!
Though I never really played past my promotion matches last seasons and do not think of myself as a noob, I know that I still make lots of mistakes and have to improve a lot. Therefore it makes me very happy to see that I am able to make my way into Gold Division.
However, I am here with a question about ranked rewards and the decay system.
A question I do not found answers to even in the Ranked Play FAQ from Riot Support.
I know that I have to stay in Gold to get my Gold rewards at the end of the season.
But can I decay from gold?
The mentioned FAQ from Riot says:
"If you are in Platinum or Diamond, after 28 days of inactivity in a particular ranked queue[...]"
"In the Master and Challenger tier, players outside of Team Ranked will decay after becoming inactive for 10 days[...]"
There is not a word about Gold or lower tiers.
So, can you decay from Gold back to Silver when you're inactive. Yes, or no?
Thank you in advance!
