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!

I like 2300, because then the noobs would have to push past their 2200 (and potentially lose it) instead of just camp it for weapons

I love how people that make money off boosts and carries want it higher than 2200. Do you want to make your job harder? The carries will want 2225, or 2250, or 2300.

No they won't lol, no one cares that much for access. And even if they do, we would still have less numbties with access with 2300 because people would still camp at 2200 because they are there for the first  time with their awesome skillcomp KFC or something.

Funny you say that, all of your posts have done nothing for this community. Why are you trying to stop people from having posting rights when all of yours have been detrimental?

Does 2v2 count?
[/quote]

Yes.

It has also come to light that one of the systems for automatically removing access until the user gains 2200+ in the current season, regardless of Gladiator titles in past seasons, after you get an infraction has not been working for quite some time. As the technology still exists, it is being reviewed as to whether or not this should be brought back.

To clarify on how the system [i]did[/i] work:

Infraction 1: Warning
Infraction 2: Junkie access removed until 2200 is gained in the current season (+ 1 day ban)
Infraction 3: Junkie access permanently removed (+ 3 day ban)
Infraction 4: Permanent ban

Additionally it is no longer possible with the system in place to just create a new account using the same character in order to reset your posting rights.

This would combat new (and existing) users that tally up an infraction count for useless/insulting posts.

The idea that making it slightly over 2200 so boosts don't get access is ridiculous.  If someone really wants access, they aren't going to care about buying an extra 25 or 50 points to get it - they've already dished out money, so what's the difference.

Logic, people - use it.

It's probably not about people buying boost to get acces it's people who just wants T2 gets acces by default now. Probably what's bothering people.

There should be a decision about this in the coming days. If it does, it is likely to be at 2400.

For those wondering where 2200 came from, we base access on what Gladiator would be, minus 150 rating.

Last season on several BG's, 2400 and below was Gladiator. Currently, if the season ended tomorrow, 2400 and below would be Gladiator. We are currently estimating, before the team rating change in 5.1, that Gladiator will be 2350+ on most BG's.

Discussions are ongoing and things may well change again if 2200 does not turn out to be the sweet spot.
