A last minute confirmation that Season 5 will be ending today, April 14th. This coincides with the release of v3.1.

Great!
But my real concern is: End of Season 5 too?

Yes.

Official Blizzard Quote:


Arena points are not being reset tomorrow. They will be reset with the beginning of season 6, which could come as early as April 21.

Original Post: 3/31/09
Word from Blizzard: Arena Season 5 will be ending in 2 to 3 weeks.

Official Blizzard Quote:

We are currently planning to end Arena Season 5 as early as April 14, or possibly a week after this date. At that point we will go through our normal process to determine who is eligible for the end-of-season rewards. This process should take approximately one week. It's very important for players who feel that they may be eligible for the arena-specific titles and/or Deadly Gladiator’s Frostwyrm to refrain from transferring their character to another realm until after Arena Season 5 ends.

The following Arena Season will not begin for at least one week after the current season ends. During this time between seasons, all rated matches will be turned off and only skirmishes will be available. When Arena Season 6 begins, all teams, personal rating, and arena points will be wiped, but matchmaking rating and honor points will remain.

Don't forget to check out the title calculator to help you out as you push for gladiator this season! Have fun.

Special thanks to vexo and Zamboni for bringing this to our attention so quickly.

That means we wont start at either 1500 nor 0. All previous glads will skyrocket to 2200+ rating.

I guess they dont at any moment want gladiators to farm scrubs the first days of chaos of S6.
The sentence below is false.
The sentence above is true.

Now to get my hunter alt from 2300 to 2400. I went to kill archavon and all I got was this lousy grand black war mammoth :]


Good luck to everyone who's going for gladiator and deadly gladiator, even though for some classes it's easier than others (as it's always been).

Suggestion to blizzard... Gladiator = top 0.5% of your class! :-)

Maybe they just realised that it's just stupid to give pve a headstart, half forcing top pvp'ers to get pve weapons while waiting.

They got it in s5 and you got it in s3/4 for the same reasons.
