This is the official launch of the season three title calculator. Any numbers read there before this point should be disregarded. Here is what you need to know about the title calculator.

1) The inactivity ratio was bumped from 45% to 50%. This is based on data pulled from the armory for some of the smaller BGs and compared it to their activity last year. The info can be found here.

2) It is just an estimate. The lowest teams that were found have a ranking and we use the lowest that ranking gets to as an approximation of how many teams there are total. We then apply our approximation to get the total number of active teams, and crawl the armory to find where the gladiator cutoff is.

3) We can only get the approximate rating for the gladiator cutoffs due to new data limits in place on the armory servers. For duel/rival/challenger, if you get that rank you should easily be safe.

4) We will constantly be updating it until the end of the season. This means the lowest teams may change, or the algorithm may change. Check back to make sure you have the latest info.

5) If you are registered here, it should bump your BG to the top for easier viewing.

If you have any ideas on how to make it more accurate, or where it might be wrong, please keep the discussion in this thread. We are working with even more limited info this season so any ideas on how to improve it would be great.

The cutoffs seem to be significantly lower than for the 2 previous seasons, what would be the explanation for that? Could we expect the data to change in the next 2 weeks?

With every new lowest team uploaded data will change.
Thing is I am getting Error messages from EU armory, anyone else?

The ratings are lower because the final two weeks are just now taking place. Expect ~100 jump as people make their final push for gladiator. Also, it appears there may be more teams getting gladiator.

EU Armory is busted at the moment.

I would expect ~100 jump only in some competitive BGs. For example those BGs you were using to determine % of inactivity will imo have small to none jump.
According to my experience last season.

The Emberstorm 5on5 has 11 Number of Glads 11, but Glad rank being 8.  Is this a mistake?

It needs to update. The lowest team got lower, but the last calculation was earlier this morning.

It will go up as the end of the season approaches.

Num glads is how many teams will get gladiator. Rank is what rank that is with inactives accounted for. Rating is what rating that rank is.

Do you have the numbers on how much the ratings went up in the last two weeks last season on each bg? Although it would probably be biased, since the last 2 weeks last 3 weeks if I remember correctly.

Sorry if I'm a noob at reading this but...(gonna use shadowburn 5v5) the Num Glads is 29, so that is how many teams are getting glad?  and the Glad Rank of 32 is how many teams are technically eligible for glad?

There are 29 teams getting gladiator. Currently, the 29th eligible team is at rank 32.

if you're at that rank right now sovreign, I don't think you'll still be safe for gladiator in 2 weeks time, unless no one plays in your Battlegroup at that rating, which I doubt.
