Blizzard posted the official explanation of how the arena and personal rating changes should be working since the patch. If you have any feedback on this system, please feel free to add it in our official feedback thread for Blizzard regarding these changes here:

Official Blizzard Quote:


There has been some confusion regarding the changes to Arena Team and Personal rating calculations in patch 2.4.2 for those players with 100% participation on their team so we’d like to clarify how the system works now.

The adjustment to a team’s personal rating can vary based on the average personal rating of the other team while team ratings will always adjust based directly on the team rating of the other team. If the average personal rating of the players queuing for a game is more than 150 points below the team’s rating, the team will be queued against an opponent matching or similar to the average personal rating. Adjustments to your personal rating are based on the ratings by which the opposing team was queued.

  • If the opposing team was queued based on their team rating, your personal rating will be adjusted based on their team rating.
  • If the opposing team was queued based on their average personal rating, your personal rating will be adjusted based on their average personal rating.

Example:


  • Team A has a rating of 1550. Team B has a rating of 1750.
  • Team A has an average personal rating of 1520 for the members participating in the match. Team B has an average personal rating of 1490 for the members participating in the match.
  • Team A wins. Team A’s team rating is adjusted based off of a win over Team B’s team rating of 1750.
  • All members of Team A have their personal ratings adjusted based off of a win over Team B’s average personal rating of 1490 but it will be a smaller gain when compared to the rating their team got.


This change promotes having teams compete against players who’s ratings statistically match up best against them. In turn this will help provide the most competitive environment possible in the Arena.

I finished the write up to send on to Blizzard for our first feedback thread. Hopefully it has a chance to make some changes before qualification round two starts, thanks for everyones feedback. I will let you know any sort of official response that we get back from them.

We have started another one to focus on the new matchmaking and personal rating system. If you have any feedback regarding how the system works or how it could be made better, please feel free to focus your comments there and we will pass it along.

In the future, all feedback threads and threads related to blue posts will be tagged with the Blizz icon so they are easy to find. Enjoy. Back to Top

Just a quick feature update for everyone. We have just added Thread Prefixes to many of the forums. Thread prefixes are selected when creating a thread and categorize the post so other people can easily see what a thread is regarding as well as sort and search the forums by Prefix.

An example:
When you go to make a thread in the 2v2 forum, you will now see to the left of the Title input a drop down menu labeled "Prefix." Lets say I'm making a thread about my Druid/Warlock team so I select the prefix [Druid/Warlock] and post as normal. Now when other people are browsing the forums they will see :druid::warlock: before my thread and they can also sort by the Prefix by scrolling to the bottom of a forum under "Display Options" and selecting the Prefix they would like to see displayed. You can also search the forums by Prefix by using the Advanced Search

We think this is going to go a long way to making it easier browse and search the forums. So please use them and help everyone out! We will continue to fine-tune and add to the prefixes as time goes on. As always, if you have any suggestions please let us know by posting in the Site Feedback forum.

Enjoy! Back to Top
