Well, we got caught a little off guard (as did most of you, I'm sure) that Season 9 arena titles were not included as a Feat of Strength. So, we didn't have the system in place to pull them in right away. Happily, we now know, they will be coming and Blizzard has said was an oversight and they will be adding them in retroactively.

In the mean time, we've hacked up our scripts to pull your Season 9 titles, so we can display the badge on AJ as well as proceed with our Season 10 access reset once we feel we have updated most all of our S9 titles. We have a lot of character's to churn through, so please be patient while you wait to receive yours.

IMPORTANT: If you would like your season 9 Gladiator or Vicious Gladiator title to be displayed here, you MUST have it set as your character's title and ensure is displays on your character's BNet main profile page.

Thanks all. Have a good weekend. I'll have more updates for you soon about the access reset and the new rating cut off. Back to Top

Well, it's probably not any secret that the Macros and Talents section have been out of commission since the site relaunch. But tonight, we've totally revamped those sections. Hopefully, it will be obvious how to use them, but here's a quick overview.

Submitting a Talent or Macro
Any user is able to submit a Talent build or a Macro by clicking the Submit button in the upper right. After you have submitted your content it will enter a moderation queue where we'll have a look and decide what get's posted.

Finding Talents or Macros
You'll find handy filters at the top of both pages to allow you to drill down and find only the content you're interested in.

Submit and Win
Easy enough? Please help us out by submitting your best macros and talents as soon as you can. I will be selecting 5 users at random who submit content that we approve within the first 24 hours. These 5 winners will recive a pet (sorry, not mounts) from the Blizzard store of their choosing.

Thanks guys, we're looking forward to beefing up these content sections again. It's been too long! We'll also be updating more of our features very soon.

Also, please post any bugs you may find in this thread. Back to Top
