The devs hosted a twitter chat where they did Q&A with folks:

We have listed some of the PVP/Arena related questions the full Q&A can be found here.

Official Blizzard Quote:

Q. If damage and healing is too much per health ratio, then why don't you have battlegrounds/arenas give a -30% damage/healing debuff?
A. We have been talking about solutions like that. It might feel a bit awkward, but it might also solve the problem and maybe it's okay in the last season before an expansion to experiment a little bit.

Q. Are there more plans for unique weapon procs as the game goes forward? How do you see this affecting min/maxing?
A. We want to keep adding procs (and other interesting mechanics) to keep the items from feeling exactly like the item it's replacing with a few more stats. We know they are harder to balance, but that's part of the fun.

Q. City raiding seems like a great way to promote Horde vs. Alliance PVP, will there be additional incentives for this?
A. We like the idea of fighting in cities. We don't like the idea of massive lag from having so many people in one area or players who are just wanting to play the AH or whatever getting nuked. We have some ideas for Cataclysm though.

Q. Following the upcoming protection warrior PvP nerf, do you plan to make our abilities focus on doing threat instead of damage?
A. We are applying threat modifiers where we nerfed damage. We'd also like to boost sustained protection warrior damage (for PvE) without adding too much burst (for PvP).

Hopefully we'll see a lot more community driven interviews like this in the future. Back to Top

Barring any further updates from Blizzard about the Season 7 end date, it looks like the season will conclude tomorrow in the US and January 20 for EU.

Official Blizzard Quote:

We are currently planning to end Arena Season 7 as early as January 19. At that point we will go through our normal process to determine who is eligible for the end-of-season rewards. This process should take approximately one week. It's very important for players who feel that they may be eligible for the arena-specific titles and/or Relentless Gladiator’s Frostwyrm to refrain from transferring their character to another realm until after Arena Season 7 ends.

The following Arena Season will not begin for at least one week after the current season ends. During this time between seasons, all rated matches will be turned off and only skirmishes will be available. When Arena Season 8 begins, all team ratings, personal rating, and arena points will be wiped, but matchmaking rating and honor points will remain.

As always, it's been fun, and we're excited to see the titles get handed out. So good luck with your last minute title pushes today and tonight.

Remember the Title Calculator has been running and hopefully will give you a good estimate of what you need to aim for, but remember it's only an estimate. If you want to discuss ratings and titles, please post in the Gladiator Bubble forum

After titles have been handed out to everyone and seem error free, we will update your titles on the site as well as conduct our seasonal access evaluation.

Good luck to everyone. Back to Top
