With the release of every expansion or season, including Mists of Pandaria, we've reset the Junkies User group and tweaked the access requirements to be in line with what actual player ratings were. A Junkie is either a grizzled veteran player that has achieved a Gladiator Title in the past or a player vying for a Gladiator Title in this current season. Throughout the seasons, the rating required for a Gladiator Title has varied a lot: some Battlegroups in season 2 had a cutoff as low as 2050, while seasons 8 and 9 saw cutoffs as high as 2700.

Based on current ladder rankings, we've decided to lower the Junkies rating requirement to 2200. This is intended to reflect current ratings players are achieving on the ladders, and to create a more reasonable expectation for players striving to become a Junkies.

This change should take effect over the next week, so please wait while the user groups update themselves!

Should be like a class requirement or something, 2200 as kfc/godcomp isn't very impressive.

If that doesn't happen the mods should be more active in banning trolls

I do agree with some of the posts above. Having the rating requirement set to 2200 is not quite adequate. A number such as 2250 would be more suitable to make sure the quality doesn't go downhill (due to obvious boosting issues)

The rating of 2200 is based on the same formula that AJ uses every season to determine the appropriate access rating.

Other changes, alongside this, are also likely to come though. This was just something where a switch could be flipped.

Does this imply that 2200 this season, according to that formula, is compared to 2400 last season? I highly doubt that.

Change statuses to:


a)Member - all time glad no rank 1


b)Junkie - all time glad and at least 1 rank one


c)Crackhead - all time glad and  at least 5 rank ones

d)Snoop-d.o. double g - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Then the quality will be great and all those bad 2.2k players will never have a chance to destroy this magnificent, high quality forum.

Not trying to start something here, but titles do not indicate quality of posts. If anything, this forum is living evidence to suggest otherwise. In the last 3 days, there have been like 20 stupid threads made by multi-time gladiators. I still think the best way to moderate bad posters would be to basically put new posters on a 2-3 week waiting period before they can post in junkie areas. If their shit checks out during that period, and they don't get any infractions, then they should be allowed to post in junkie areas. This mentality to further limit the amount of people in the community is silly and only diminishes the number of arena players.


When did this forum start glitching so much?
