Hey guys. Thanks for all your research and feedback thus far in helping to determine how to account for inactivity this season. The conclusion is that it appears that in-game rank already has inactivity factored in. This means the lowest teams rank should be the actual number of active teams.

Wickleer put together a great analysis using Ruin as an example: http://www.arenajunk...ead.php?t=45323

Check out the Gladiator Bubble for More discussion on what people have found for their own BGs: http://www.arenajunk...splay.php?f=120

Unfortunately, without a season 3 hall of fame, this is the best information we have to work with. If you think for any reason that your Battlegroup needs to be adjusted, please post it here. If you have any further thoughts on how to improve the accuracy, please post that here as well.

Hey, I'm a bit confused, let's say the glad calculator on AJ says gladiator cut off is the 82nd team, and between the 1st and 82nd team there are 30 inactive, will the 112th team get glad, or the 82nd?

As the AJ calculator uses the ingame rank and the ingame rank got inactive teams already sorted out, it would still be the 82nd

what it means is that the top 112 teams on ARMORY will most likely get glad.

Armory lists all teams no matter the rating...but it doesn't get rid of the inactive teams.

So... if armory doesn't sort out active and inactive teams, that means all the inactive teams get removed from gladiator rankings. if that happens, will everyone elses rank move up? (closer to 1st place)

Just curious. AJ calculator says on retaliation top 81 teams get glad. im in 66th, not sure if im getting it :(
Anyone able to give me an estimate if i will get glad?

(66th place on my warlock Xcarry, US-retaliation)

although its been said before...

ex: if the AJ cutoff is top 100 and there 20 inactive teams, the top 120(ON ARMORY) will most likely get it. ofcourse, if between 100 and 120 there are some inactive teams as well, then it would move up accordingly.

In game ranking isn't correct with the inactivity filter, granted some teams have maybe gone inactive during the week after the rollover but from what i can count there are about 10 more teams that are inactive than the armory/in game tab is counting.

I just like having the newest mount. Mixes things up a little after you've been flying the old one for an entire season.

Phew, not sure how this is going to play out.

Cutoff for gladiator for my BG, is 134. Current rating is 2180

Although we have been as high as 30 in our BG, we haven't done to well lately. We wanted to get above 2200, but when we stopped yesterday, we have only 2169, which places us @ 143.

Last week, we where rated 200 on armory, and 167 ingame, which means 33 inactives in the first 200.

We counted empty teams, or teams with 1500 personal rating, who where above us, and that number is 38 (out of 143).

Anyone got an idea of why there is such a big difference between what we see as inactive, and what we saw at last update?

I'm not feeling as comfirtable today, as I did yesterday,...

EDIT: And yes, we where the first team on horde who got shoulders, but disbanded the team, changed partners ect, and now pushed for gladiator again. (We got 2070, 36 games with all wins - would suck so much not to get gladiator)
