First of all, congratulations to all of you who made gladiator. Sorry to those of you who made deadly duelist =/

We're currently finishing up updates on our userbase for gladiator titles and as you can see they should be displaying. If yours has not shown up yet, please give it another day or so before asking for a fix.

As is our policy, we will be doing a reset of access for all non-gladiators(s1, s2, s3, s4, or s5) as soon as we feel that the armory has sufficiently updated. Expect this to happen within the next few days.

Moving forward, we are changing the access restrictions again to hopefully stay in line with where the title cutoffs will be in the future. We believe the following should be fair without being overly restrictive.
2v2: 2300
3v3: 2200
5v5: 2100

Feel free to post your thoughts on why those should be higher/lower. Please keep in mind that we want something that isn't perfect but is close enough and can be used as a general rule without bias for class, bg, etc.

Also, I'll be posting the gladiator breakdowns around the same time we do the access wipe. Cheers.

With how the ratings are growing at this rate, access shouldn't be a problem at all for people.

I think the 5v5 requirements are a bit too restrictive, if anything they should be lowered to like 1900.

Think same about the 5v5 req, and tbh they should really wipe s1/s2 glad acces aswell, I mean 2 years ago this was such a completely different game where they got glad in that they have hardly anything relevant to say about the current game


whats our strat? (murgrlgrlgrlgrlgrlgr) warrior dead

on ganking veex in the third match between TSG and DKP in round 1 of Blizzcon


I think the problem SK US are currently having is that unlike eMg's Paladin, Souler doesn't have bubble binded to F12.

on SK's attempt to kill Souler

I could see the 2300 2v2 being very easy in not very long.
And 1900 in 5v5? no, just no.

Even less teams will probably play 5v5 with this new system so imo rating req shouldnt rise..

I think this is needed, because when I remember DK posts last season.

A: How should we beat shaman feral as pala dk?
DK: Kill the shaman lol!

The only shame is that when someone don't want / can't push it to gladiator (for example my partner left in both s4 and s5 right at the end), he is screwed and all pala/dk/hunters from last season can post there. So I really don't see the point.

5v5 2100 bit too high. think 2k fits more. the bracket is just dead on our realmpool, so sad :(

I think the ratings are perfect as they are. 5v5 shouldn't lower - one can more easily get carried there without really knowing how to play. 2v2 is, as we all know, the fotm bracket and 3v3 should actually really be where people proove what they're worth. Nevertheless, these ratings are fine imo, although they didn't even need to get higher imo in the first place, I don't think ratings are what matter that much (to a certain point it may), I think on a forum like this, what people post is far, far more important.
