I don't care if top player is online or not. I really don't. This is completely nonsense. Who told you that would be a good idea? At least give us a option to turn it off.
OMG! I was going to post the same. It's so annoying seeing the banner not once but THREE times of the person. First, for top 3 in arena and then in might. Not sure what other top events also show up. It came on when I was trying to finish GW and I wanted to throw my phone into the wall! (Yes, that's how annoying it was).
