Well, I think it would be an understatement to say this has been a rocky launch. We're doing are best to bring everything back online and get it stable.

Just to address some of the complaints that I have seen between the server outages real quick. This is your community. I'm going to listen to you and do what I think is best for all of us. That being said, change is never an easy thing to deal with - hell this is a lot for me to get used to as well! So we're going to let this new design sink in for a bit. If it's still not working for most of you we'll move to make it work.

Thanks for bearing with us. This hasn't been an easy process for any of us, we'll be back up and chugging along soon.

The conversion took a really long time, but we're back up and on the new site! Thanks for everyone's patience while we were getting moved over!

EDIT: We're having some server issues at the moment, thanks for you continued patience. This hasn't been as smooth as we would have liked. Hang in there with us. Thanks

Logging In:

Before logging in for the first time, please read (and follow) the instructions above the login form. The high and the low - if you've already double checked that your email here matched your email on your Curse account - you should login with your Curse information. If you don't have a Curse account, login with your old AJ info.

This SHOULD NOT affect your ArenaJunkies display name. However, in some cases there might have been conflicts or trouble with the import and your display name might be a little off. If this happed to you, there is an option to set your own display name once every 180 days. To do this, after you log in, click your name in the upper right corner (with the grey bar) and you should get a drop down. Click "My Settings." From that page, click "Change Display Name" in the bar to the left. This will not affect your login name.

Now on to the fun stuff:

For the most part, I'm just going to let you guys explore and start to settle in, but I want to make sure I highlight some  features.

Design
The first thing you'll notice is the visual refresh. It's a nice, new unified design that the old site lacked. However, it's very different from the old site, and it will probably take all of us a little time to adjust from our old ways.

Alts
We now support alts! You'll be able to add all of your characters on the same account and switch between them at will. We have now automated Armory verification. Your gladiator titles should be displayed from all characters on your posts. No more posting in the Character Change forum and waiting on me to manually update you!

Content Submission
We have a brand new submission mechanism for Macros and Talents that is going to allow it to you to easily submit a Macro or a Talent and we'll be able to add them to the site very easily and quickly. We've also reset these sections and I want to see how quickly you guys can fill them back up with current info!

Strategy content is going to stay in the forums for the time being while we continue to develop that system for submission.

Videos
Some of you will remember we briefly had a video section on the site, but Stage9 went down and took our system with it. We've added this section back in for you guys to submit your videos. We'll be working quickly to fill this section up with great PVP videos.

Rankings
Rankings are back! After the switch to battle.net from armory, they were gone for too long.

Forums
We've moved onto a new system, Invision Power Board. There are a lot of new features and options for you to dig into, but past they will still be the same boards you've always used.

Thanks guys, I know it's long overdue and we're still working really hard on a lot of features and tweaks for the site, but as always, I want to hear what you guys think and any constructive feedback you've got. And of course, if you find any bugs, please post immediately (screenshots help). Also, if you're having technical difficulties and can't login to send me a PM, please send an email to webmaster -at- arenajunkies -dot- com.

Blizzard just posted this an hour ago. Looks like our handy calculator won't be quite as necessary anymore. Read on for more details:


Official Blizzard Quote:

Bone-shattering PvP conflicts can be harrowing and demanding, but smart gladiators know that if you want to emerge triumphant, you need to walk onto the battlefield well-equipped.

In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, certain PvP pursuits reward players with a new kind of currency: Conquest Points. Conquest Points can be exchanged for the very best PvP armor, gear, and weapons in the game, allowing you to hone your competitive edge in the ring and on the battlefield.

Those Gladiator items are calling, but how do you get the Conquest Points to buy them? There are three main ways to do so:

-          Winning Arena matches
-          Winning Rated Battleground games
-          Winning your first Random Battleground game of the day

Each time your team wins a Rated Arena or Rated Battleground match, you're awarded a certain number of Conquest Points; no points are awarded for losing, however. Your first Random Battleground win of the day will also net you 25 Conquest Points.

There's a limit on how many Conquest Points you can gain over the course of a single week, and points earned from all sources count toward that total. Everyone starts at 0 personal rating with a weekly cap of 1,343, which is the most points you can accrue over the course of a week. Unlike Honor and Justice Points, Conquest (and Valor) points do not have an overall cap.

Note:There's no benefit to hoarding large amounts of Conquest Points since they'll be converted into Honor (or Justice Points, for Valor) when the next tier of items becomes available, and there are no plans to extend the 4,000 point cap on the lower-tier currencies. That conversion is still rather far in the future, though, and we plan to provide plenty of advance warning before it happens. In the meantime, feel free to purchase items you want as soon as you can afford them.

If you want to be able to earn more than 1,343 Conquest Points in a single week, then you'll need to increase your personal rating above 1,500 by participating in Rated Arenas or Rated Battlegrounds. Only your best personal rating counts, and as you improve and bring your rating over 1,500, your weekly point cap will rise as well -- and if you manage to achieve a very high rating, your weekly cap could approach 3,000. Here are some sample ratings and corresponding point caps:

Rating Weekly Points Cap
1500 1343
1800 1940
2100 2533
2400 2849
2700 2849
3000 3000

You can check your current total number of Conquest Points at any time in your character's Currency tab. For more detailed information, open the PvP menu and click on the Conquest tab, where you'll find how close you are to the weekly cap and how many points you'll earn by winning an Arena or Rated Battleground match. You can check out what the Conquest Point vendors have to offer in the Champions' Hall in Stormwind or the Hall of Legends in Orgrimmar.

Now that you know what you're fighting for, it's time to show Azeroth your incredible PvP skills. Confront your foes. Fight! Win!

Thanks to Shifty for pointing this out in our Conquest Cap thread: http://www.arenajunk...64
