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.
