1.) Arena Junkies Pet Battle Invitationals
Pet Battles are PvP! Pet battles will now be featured by ArenaJunkies and we are looking for guides, videos and the AJ Pet Battle Invitational will soon be hosted. Our marketing team determined that there is much larger viewer base available for pet battles than for arena battles. Based on this we also decided to have a 18000$ price pool for the first tournament. The rules will be double elimination and we will have qualifiers on selected US & EU PvP realms. You will have to choose a comp of three pets prior to the tournament and are not allowed to change them. We got the confirmation that Brian Holinka himself will be co-commentating the final round. Lovely to see such a support by Blizzard!
2.) Junkie status change
In the past many players bought Junkie access over boosts and similar shady things. We decided it is not determinable by us who might or might not be a real junkies. So we decided to replace the Junkie requirement with the Brutally Dedicated achievement and give access to everyone with that achievement. We think 300 won arena matches prove someone knows what he is talking about and can be a viable member of this site.
Note: This feature will be implemented soon along with an update of the forum software.
3.) Female gamer support
We noticed that comments about female streamers were often not as respectful as they could have been. We decided to counter this by featuring streams of female gamers more prominently in the future. We also consider doing "Girl of the month" vote on female streamers in the tradition of World of Ming. If you want your stream featured please send Hildegard a private message and add some screenshots of your stream.
