Update: Titles have now been fixed. Enjoy your mounts.

We now have Blizzard confirming there was an issue. The official blue post can be found below. Please keep in mind the calculator is just an estimation tool but we really have no way of validating any of the information. Don't get your hopes up if you were very close to the cutoff.

I'll keep this thread updating as more information comes in.

Official Blizzard Quote:

We are aware of an issue related to the application of Arena titles and rewards with the end of the Arena Season 4, resulting in some titles and rewards being assigned incorrectly. We are currently investigating this issue and hope to have a full resolution made available very soon. Please note that our Support department will not be able to review cases on an individual basis for the moment.

We would like to thank all players who have reported this issue; this information has proved very helpful in tracking down the cause. We will update you on this matter as soon as more information is available.

We apologize for any confusion this situation may have caused. Thank you for your assistance and continued patience.

So are they contradicting themselves by saying they won't be reviewing cases on an individual basis after telling us to submit tickets?

That is one way to interpret. You could also look at the line where they say thank you for reporting as those tickets helped them gather info, but I am guessing that is referring to that one thread in the CS forum.

I'm still leaving my petition open regardless. Hoping to hear some good news soon on the fix.

The disclaimer is kinda pointless since there's no reason your calculations would be wrong once the ingame rank starts removing inactive teams.  It's annoying that people don't seem to realise how precise the caculator was this season.

They had a week to get this shit straight.  I don't see how they keep screwing up every season.  You would think they would try harder not to make the same mistakes as previous seasons.

Blizzard could have just as likely horribly fucked up the inactive ratings.  But yeah, the estimates are perfect based on the numbers blizzard provided.

I assumed it would be, but you would also think it is impossible for them to get the rewards wrong. There is always room for error it seems, be it armory ranking or in game ranking errors.

Blizz should just pay Tyv to do it.

Although he would do a better job overall. I'm sure giving it to a third party that runs a fansite wouldn't be good practice in general.
it aint easy being white
it aint easy being brown
So much pressure to be bright
I got kids all over town!

"A GM told me there would be a game-wide fix in 48 hours to settle titles.
GM from petitioning that is. "

This was posted by someone on page 3. Anyone think this might be true? Just tossing that out there.

Then he wouldn't have as much time on his hands as he has now. Likely. Apart from that, Tyv is doing a great job.
