Hey guys, we are getting the calculator running again to start estimating for season four. Please add any low teams you know to the list.
http://www.arenajunk...com/calculator/

The second purpose of this thread is to figure out how to take into account inactivity this season. We are still in the dark from last season with no hall of fame, so there is no way to tell if the low rating cutoff was because they discarded a lot of players because they had been accused of win trading, or if they didn't take inactivity into account at all.

Right now, we just want to gather the lowest teams while we all try to figure out the best way to estimate inactivity, if at all.

I love the fact that there is no season 3 Hall of Fame to try to cover up failures in the "system".

Yaaaaaa...

Now I'm really just thinking I should stay put in Lothar and being the single Gladiator from Lothar from either Horde or Alliance...

That would be pretty funny.

But I also wanna play game and I don't wanna wait and have a "75%" chance to get gladiator. I want 100%. I don't care bout that damn title. Gimmah My Mount!

? there's been no "push" yet. Expect it to go up.

Edit: the cutoffs from last season were proven to be based off in-game rank I believe- or at least that was the most accurate.

in game rank does indeed seem more trusty...

Last season in vindication there were people around 2150 getting glad, so I don't expect it to be much higher w/ as little teams that are playing.

The calc says ~2080 atm, I expect that to go higher but not by 300 points like most people claim .-.

It hasn't been updated for inactivity yet. So right now we are just trying to get the lowest teams.

I'm fairly sure you're safe.  My lock moved down about 13 slots and I haven't played him in over a month.

Sure even when considering that the inactive teams are still in there the rating for Glad is pretty low. But don't forget the season has been short so the span of the rating isn't very large. On EU Cyclone for example 2067 is the 40th position in 3v3.

The difference from 1700 - 1800 is huge! You can go from ranked 1500 to 400 in 100 pts. Thats just stupid funny imo.

You have to remember though, although the cut-off is very low, 0.5% is STILL 0.5% whichever way your twist it.

It's not at all surprising it's like it is when you think of the inactivity throughout this season, add to the fact it's been around for only a couple of months now.

That's pretty much proof that the PR on all gear system would mean casual arena players wouldn't bother playing past 1700 - Yet another reason why the cut-off is so low, massive decrease in activity at the bottom of the ladder as well as the top.
