Season 10 has ended in the US and will in for EU tomorrow. We're really looking forward to a fresh start in Season 11.

Eldacar has put together a fantastic thread that covers just about anything you would need to know about the Season 10 to Season 11 transition: http://www.arenajunk...-faq-and-guide/

Blizzard has also revised the original post about Season 10 ending to reflect the start date of Season 11 on December 6. They have also updated it to state that all matchmaking rating will be wiped at the start of Season 11.

Official Blizzard Quote:

Arena and Rated Battleground Season 10 will have ended as of November 29. We will then determine who is eligible for the end-of-season rewards, a process that should take approximately one week. It's very important for players who feel that they may be eligible for Arena titles and/or the Ruthless Gladiator’s Twilight Drake to refrain from transferring their characters to another realm or faction until Season 10 officially ends after maintenance is finished on November 29. During the break between seasons, all Rated Battleground and Arena matches will be unavailable.

At the end of Season 10, Conquest Points will be converted to Honor Points, which offers the possibility of temporarily exceeding the normal 4,000 Honor Point cap. For the week, all Season 10 items will become available for Honor Points (at prices equivalent to their previous Conquest Point cost), with the exception of any items with rating requirements attached. Those items will no longer be available for purchase.

Arena and Rated Battleground Season 11 will begin for level-85 players approximately one week after the end of Season 10 on December 6.  Season 10 titles and mounts will be awarded at that time. Also, new and more powerful items will become available for purchase with Honor Points after maintenance on that date, and any Honor accrued above the 4,000-point cap will be converted into gold at a rate of 35 silver per point. Finally, Season 11 rewards will be made available for purchase with Conquest Points which are earned during the new season.

All Team, Personal, and Matchmaking Ratings will be wiped when Season 11 begins.

Good luck in Season 11. Once titles are awarded, you'll start seeing your S10 skulls pop up. Back to Top

Hey folks, as you know the season is soon going to wrap up and many people are asking questions about what are the exact requirements for the highly coveted Gladiator Title and the end of the season mount reward are. We've taken the time to fully explain the requirements!

Requirements for the Gladiator Title:
  • Your team needs to be within the top .5% of your Battlegroup's active teams (Check out the Gladiator Title Calculator to see the cutoff)
  • Your character needs to be within 100 personal rating of the team rating (If your rating is higher than the team rating this does not apply, and you will still get your title).
  • Your character needs to have played 20% of the total games played by the team for this season.
  • Your character needs to be level 85.
  • Your team needs to be in either the 3v3 or 5v5 bracket.
*The 2v2 bracket does not give any title rewards.

Common Misconceptions:
There are a lot of misconceptions about what the exact requirements are. Here's some of them:
  • My team will be "inactive" if I don't play during the last few weeks.
  • There needs to be two people in the team that meet the requirements.
  • Your account needs to be active when titles/rewards are handed out.
A Team Is Considered Inactive If:
  • The team has no players in it.
  • The team has nobody in it that meets the Personal Rating requirements (within 100 PR of the Team Rating).
  • The team does not have more then 20 games played for the season.
  • The team has no members who have played 20% of the total games played during the season.
*Inactive teams do not count towards the total number of teams when calculating the cutoff for Gladiator.
*Your in game team ranking is your actual ranking. It does not include inactive teams that are higher rated then you.


Now, if you haven't qualified for the Gladiator Title, it does not mean that you're are not going to receive any reward at all. The Duelist, Rival and Challenger Titles are up for grabs as well. The requirements for these titles are exactly the same as for the Gladiator title with the exception of one thing: Instead of being in the top .5%, they have less stringent requirements about where your team's standing needs to be at the end of the season.

Title Standing Percentiles:
  • Gladiator - 0.5%
  • Duelist - 0.5% - 3.0%
  • Rival - 3% - 10%
  • Challenger - 10% - 35%

And the last but not least, the title that we must talk about is the Ruthless Gladiator Title. This is the most prestigious title given to a single team in each ladder, 3v3 and 5v5, in each Battlegroup. If you're one of the lucky few who has fought hard throughout the season to secure the Ruthless Gladiator Title, congratulations!

Also, here's a nifty macro to check your ranking in game: (thanks to Schnorki)
/script for i=1,3 do t,s,r,_,_,tp,_,_,pp,ra,p=GetArenaTeam(i) pl=(floor((pp/tp*100*10^2)+0.5))/10^2 ChatFrame1:AddMessage(""..s.."v"..s..": Team <"..t.."> is rank "..ra.." with "..r.." rating. ("..p.." personal, "..pl.."% played)") end

We'd like to give a big thanks to Maarkoo for originally posting much of this information in this thread. Back to Top

The Arena Season is scheduled to end as early as Nov 29. It's time to finish your end of the season grind and hopefully get the titles you've been working on! Check out the Arena Title Calculator and if you know a team lower than above, make sure to submit the URL to the Battle.net armory page. If you're not sure about the exact requirements for getting the Gladiator Title here's is a handy guide listing every requirement.

Official Blizzard Quote:

Arena and Rated Battleground Season 10 is scheduled to end November 29. At that point we will determine who is eligible for the end-of-season rewards, a process that should take approximately one week.

During the break between seasons, all Rated Battleground and Arena matches will be unavailable.

At the end of the season, Conquest Points will be converted to Honor Points, possibly exceeding the 4,000 point Honor cap. All Season 10 items will cost Honor Points (equivalent to their previous Conquest Point cost) when the season ends, with the exception of any items with rating requirements attached. These items will no longer be available for purchase.

Please be aware that higher ilvl PvP items will be introduced and available for Honor points with patch 4.3.

The next Arena and Rated Battleground season will begin for level-85 players approximately one week after the end of Season 10 and will coincide with the awarding of Season 10 titles and mounts. At that time, any Honor accrued above the 4,000-point cap will be converted into gold at a rate of 35 silver per point. In addition, Season 11 rewards will be made available for purchase with Conquest Points awarded during the new season. Matchmaking Ratings will carry over when Season 11 begins, but all Team and Personal Ratings will be wiped.
