Because the season is now coming to a close, we are under the assumption that everyone is on at least one of their regular teams. We believe that now seems like a reasonable time to reevaluate current access as players with access at the end of the season will maintain it for approximately the first three weeks after the season starts.

In the interest of keeping the content in the forums as excellent as possible, we ran our armory update scripts removing access from those who no longer meet requirements. If you believe this to be an error, please PM with any details on why you should not have lost access.

Please do not take this personally as it is just an attempt to help keep the forums functioning in the way they were originally intended. This will be a semi-regular thing until the end of the season, after which we will be testing a new heuristic to help determine forum access.

The calculator has been updated to take into account inactive teams.

http://www.arenajunk...com/calculator/

Here is the explanation that can also be found on the page:

Note: This is a living document and will continue to update these numbers nightly until the season ends.

After sampling some of smaller BGs for inactive teams and comparing it to samples from the larger BGs, I have found a what I believe to be a safe and accurate approximation for the percentage of inactive teams. When comparing the new numbers with the last year hallf of fame, it seems to be a slight increase, but not massive which is what one would expect. To see the discussion on this, feel free to check this thread.

Inactive Team Estimations:
2v2: 40%
3v3: 45%
5v5: 50%

Here is how the tables below are generated:
First, apply the estimates estimate to the total number of teams to find how many gladiators and duelists there will be.
Next, scan through the active teams until those numbers are reached and record their rank and rating.
This gives us the estimated rank and rating cutoffs for those titles.

If anyone can post a similar thread to this on the EU, KR, and TW boards I would appreciate it.

"While testing continues and a delay could possibly change these dates, we are currently planning to start Season 3 on November 20 once the realms come back up from their weekly maintenance. This means that Season 2 will come to a close when the realms come down for maintenance on November 20. During that maintenance the final standings are taken and the end of season rewards are distributed.

The start date for Season 3 is purposefully planned to be one week later than the release of patch 2.3, which is currently scheduled for November 13. We will be closely monitoring the testing of the 2.3 patch, and if it looks like it won’t make the November 13 date, we will announce a delay."

I will try to keep this FAQ updated as the blue post updates. Thanks for the find Pharaun.

FAQ

Q: Can I keep my title from Season 1 even if I haven’t participated in Season 2?
A: No, the seasonal titles are intended to be a reward for performance in the previous season. Similar to a sports title or award, it’s handed off or moved to different players/teams as their performance rises or declines throughout the seasons.

Q: What happens to my Nether Drake?
A: You will keep your Swift Nether Drake, and a new visually distinguishable Swift Nether Drake will be given to the top 0.5% of teams for their efforts in Season 2.

Q: So I’ve heard something about items having rating requirements?
A: Yes, the Season 3 weapons will have a personal rating requirement of 1850, and the shoulders will have a personal rating requirement of 2000.

Q: What is a “Personal Rating”?
A: We’re introducing an additional rating system with the start of Season 3 that will only track your personal games played, which you’ll be able to see through the in-game PvP interface. This rating will be used to determine the ability to buy specific items, and also to determine eligibility for the end of season rewards. The personal rating rises and declines using the same formula as the arena team rating, but only in games that you participate in. If you switch teams the rating will be reset to a default 1500. The personal rating is only used for the initial purchase of specific items, and isn't required that you maintain a rating to use them.

Q: What happens to the Season 1 and 2 items?
A: The Season 2 items will be priced the same as Season 1 is now, and the Season 1 items are moving to the honor system, purchasable with honor points and Battleground marks.

Q: What happens to my rating when Season 2 ends?
A: Ratings for all teams are reset to the default 1500 for the new season. You still keep your arena points though, they aren’t diminished or removed.

Q: When does Season 2 officially end?
A: Barring a delay, when the realms come down for maintenance on November 20.

Q: How sure are you that 2.3 will make a November 13 release?
A: Pretty sure, but there’s always the possibility for a delay. Due to the upcoming holidays any necessary delays to the release of the patch may require us to delay Season 3 into the start of December. We’re trying very hard to avoid that.

Q: Why isn’t Season 3 beginning with the release of the patch?
A: To help us focus on both a major content patch release, and start of a new season, we’re separating them by one week. Back to Top
