I wrote a ticket to support about the emote I got for this split (I got bronze even tho I am at Iron)
This is a fragment of first response:
> Okay, so I asked around and **DOUBLE-CHECKED** and, the thing about the emote is that it **CANNOT** downgrade.
As such, since **YOU REACHED BRONZE**, that's why you have the Bronze emote and it cannot be downgraded.
I was confused by this so I asked for someone "competent" to look at it.
and this is the fragment of response I got from other "sPecialIsT":
> Anyway, I see that my colleague **ALREADY PROVIDED** you with an **EXPLANATION** for this, and why we can't modify the Split emote that you received. I saw that this is mentioned in our article as well "This Emote **WILL** upgrade **OR DOWNGRADE TO REFLECT YOUR CURRENT RANK** at all times until the split ends, at which point it locks into the rank you completed the split in".
Do they even know what they writing?
I don't want to insult anyone here but, you can see how much we can trust support in resolving any problem that forces them to think.
That [article](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/204010760-Ranked-Play-FAQ#h0q1) he mentioned.
