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

We all know what has been going on with the account bans and gear removal for win trading. We finally have an official blue post about the issue. If you are unfamiliar with what is going on, check it out here: http://www.arenajunk...ead.php?t=21903

Important thing to note is that if you feel you have been wrongly banned, make sure to contact them. There have been reports of it being reversed upon further review. Hopefully, this also means they have done all the bans they are going to do for now, so if you still have your account you are probably safe.

Official Blizzard Quote:

In our continued efforts to support fair gameplay in World of Warcraft and to provide a positive experience for players, we have taken steps to ensure fair and enjoyable competition in the Arena by actioning players who have exploited the Arena system to gain artificial victories to purchase Arena gear. Our support team identified several hundred of the most abusive win traders, and action was taken against those accounts in the form of a 72-hour suspension, as well as removal of all Arena gear purchased in the current season.

We want to emphasize that this action was not taken lightly, and was only done to address the severity of the problem. Win trading goes against the spirit of World of Warcraft and hurts enjoyment of the game for all players who earn their victories by competing in a fair environment.

Blizzard Entertainment has always taken a very firm stance against win trading, and additional in-game updates will be made to limit this abuse in an upcoming patch. Additionally, we will continue to closely monitor the Arena system for any signs of win trading or other abuse.

If you were among the players actioned for win trading, but feel it was done in error, please contact our account administration team at [email protected].

Thank you for your support and best of luck to you in all of your games in the Arena.
