This Sunday from 12-3 PM PST they are having a practice tourney on the TTR. The results from the tourney will be posted to tournament realm forum. Should be interesting to see how this stress test goes. See you there :)

Are you ready to take on the world in the arenas? The World of Warcraft team will be testing the WoW Arena Tournament on the Tournament Test Realm, and you are invited to be a part of the action. Players in all regions will access the same realm, so the call is going out to all PvPers in North America, Europe, and Korea to log into the Arena Tournament Test Realm and participate in all-out PvP action!

The Worldwide Arena Battle will take place this Sunday between 12PM to 3PM PST, and members of the Community and Development teams will join in the fray, including a head to head match between community managers from around the world for world dominance. The results will also be posted on the Tournament forum!

No character copies will be needed for this unique event as you will get access to the character and gear of your choice just by logging in. The 2.4 PTR patch will provide access to the Tournament realm so download it soon and we’ll see you on the battlefield!"

Just a reminder that there is still one more week remaining to submit your logo for the logo contest. It has been a week since it started, and we have been amazed by what has been submitted so far. There are a lot of talented people who browse our site.

We wanted to give everyone some feedback on the logos thus far. We evaluated the logos on the following criteria:

1) Logo - This is first and foremost a logo contest, so we want make sure the logo works outside of the header it is presented in.
2) Legality - We want to be able to brand the site with the winning logo, so anything that Blizzard has the rights to won't be suitable outside of the header. Ultimately, the winning submission will have to meet this criterion.
3) Aesthetics - Does it look good?
4) Concept - Do we like the idea behind the logo? Does it fit the site?
5) Bonus Points: Header - We gave a small amount of bonus points for those who were able to fit it in the header. It is not required to put it in a header for us, but it helps give us context for the logo on the website.

Here are the current front runners (in no particular order) based on the criteria above:

Pro - Looks really nice with a creative layout.
Con - Legality issues concerning the use of Blizzard source material.

Pro - Unique artwork, looks nice.
Cons - Not sold on the font.

Pro - Unique Design that emphasizes "AJ" branding.
Con - Visuals don't tie into what the site stands for.
Posted Image

Pro - Really like the concept.
Con - Could be cleaned up a bit, potentially some color scheme variations. Would also like to see it as an unique interpretation and not exactly in likeness to the original Colosseum)
Posted Image

Pro - Recognizable and fits the site.
Con - Too similar to WoW logo.

If you would like feedback on your submission, feel free to shoot me a PM and we can give you a more detailed explanation of what it would take to make your submission win. Again, great job so far everyone :) Back to Top
