We didn't use exact percentiles because we feel that it's more important that the requirements are consistent and easy to remember. But it's roughly:

  • Diamond - Top 0.05% to 0.1%
  • Platinum - Top 0.5% to 1%
  • Gold - Top 5% to 10%
  • Silver - Top 40% to 50%

And as the new season progresses, you can find updated percentiles on LoL Wiki.
