Since the release of Wrath we have been working hard to make sure we are ready for Level 80 arena. We are really excited to see arena start up again in what is essentially a new game.
Arena Junkies is viewing it as a fresh start as well. The site was created on the premise that it would be an intellectual exchange between experts and a place less experienced players could ask questions and improve their game. In keeping with this we will be reverting all Junkie's who have not received Gladiator in a previous season back to Member status.
We feel that over the past 4 seasons there have been too many chances for users to slip in due to buying PR/Shoulders, dramatically long seasons, or win trading. As always - everyone in the Member user group are welcomed participants in the discussion and encouraged to post in the Ask a Gladiator forum and the forums for both Members & Junkies. Having your Junkie access removed does not mean you can never be a Junkie or post in those sections again, it simply means you have to meet the 2K+ rating or Gladiator requirement in Season 5.
We are doing a comprehensive update of our user base and want to make sure people weren't inappropriately tagged as inactive and we want to give any users time to fix their previous Gladiator status.
How should you prepare?
1) Please update your accounts if you have transferred or changed your character recently. We need to know as we can't track these changes automatically.
2) If you received Gladiator in a previous season but it is not noted on your account please PM me with a link to the Hall of Fame. If it is S3 Gladiator send a screenshot showing your mount and the achievement.
We will be making these changes before S5 arrives. Should you have any questions about what the different user groups are please refer to this post: Forum Rules.
