Arena 0 Point Hotix - Blue Post

As many of you may have already noticed, there's been a recent change in arenas that can cause you to gain 0 points when you win.

Official Blizzard Quote:

We recently implemented a hotfix to address a bug that allowed Personal Ratings to exceed Matchmaking Rating. As a result, some players may notice that they do not gain or lose Personal Rating in the wake of a match. As more matches are played, these ratings will normalize and converge to the correct rating, and Personal Rating will then rise or drop accordingly.

In the meantime, we will continue to monitor the situation and make further adjustments if necessary.

What does this mean? Basically if your personal CR is higher than your MMR you will get 0 points when you win. However, losing will still cause you to lose points for both your MMR and CR. It is speculated that the cause of this hotfix could be a way to combat rating boosts, or perhaps a way to fix the higher than normal ratings we are seeing this season. It was mentioned on Twitter however, it was a fix to a bug that specifically happened in 5.4.7.

In my opinion, this could encourage the top of the ladder to sit their rating. This is due to the fact that the large majority of the top achieved their rating before the fix was implemented. However, inflation could negate this issue since the last season of an expansion usually lasts the longest and longer seasons seem to have higher inflation. Back to Top

Mists of Pandaria - Featured Guides - March

Between last month's "Featured Guides" post and now there were tons of quality guides made on Arena Junkies. Thank you to the guide makers! It was hard choosing one guide out of the many that was made, but it was decided for this month "Jaime's Advanced Warrior 5.4.7 Guide" would be featured.

Jaimie's guide features a lot of useful information for anyone looking to try Warriors out in arenas. It has all the basic information you need such as macros, talents, reforging and more. In addition, it also adds a lot of in-depth views on what the poster's personal preferences are such as using "Double Time".

I greatly encourage anyone who's looking for guides to check out the Strategy Section of Arena Junkies. A lot of it has been filled between this last month. Back to Top
