I have just discovered that Patch 1.5.0 Arcade introduced a new epic portrait frame for "chosen" players. How to obtain that?

Regular frame:

I think it's a reward for buying the collector edition. Not 100% sure yet tho. – user12002 Aug 3 '12 at 22:58
Looking at peoples feats of strengths I must agree that it comes from having Collectors Edition of SC2. – Blem Aug 3 '12 at 23:42

See this post, especially this reply:

The color/material of each frame means the current league of the player in 1 versus 1 mode.

Looks like the one you posted is from a Master League player. This screenshot confirms it:

enter image description here

the player is Master on 1v1 and his portrait is a minimal version of the Master badge (I didn't add the red circle, the badges I'm referring to actually are the two beneath)

So, to answer your question: you need to rank up :)

Exactly. No frame = not yet ranked 1v1, then bronze, silver (non-shiny), gold (non-shiny), platinum, diamond (greenish-blue, shiny), master (silver, shiny) and grand-master (gold, shiny) – CBenni Mar 15 '13 at 15:39
