New Site Design and Features
Posted 21 March 2008 - 11:18 PM
We had a lot of fun with the Logo Competition and hope everyone else did to. Thanks to everyone who participated. We were pleasantly surprised at how many great submissions there were.
We are happy to congratulate Ellic on winning the logo competition! Ellic will be receiving a complimentary Arena Junkies Premium Membership, a free two months of WoW, and a free t-shirt with the new ArenaJunkies logo. As well as designing the new logo, Ellic also designed the new site banner. We think it looks terrific. Congrats and Thanks Ellic!
Brand New Features
We have packed this release with new features and upgrades. We'll outline the major changes below and appropriately leave the rest as Easter Eggs for you to discover on your own.
* News Reel – For a little flair we've added a news reel to accompany major news items.
* Quick Rankings – The Top 10 2v2 teams, 3v3 teams, 5v5 teams, Guilds, and Players in the world right at your fingertips.
* Recent Content Block - Never again miss the most recent Guide/Strategy/Macro/etc.
With the new profile's you may never need to use The Armory again. We have included each of your teams, your gear, gem and enchant info, as well as a wall for leaving a note.
Each team we index now has its own page. This page includes all the vital data, a graph showing the teams historical rating, and a wall to leave a team a message.
Each Guild that we index also has its own page.
This page displays all the members of the guild that are on 2000+ rated teams as well as information on the Guild's global ranking (a brand new feature we'll explain soon!).
Improved Arena Team Rankings
You will find the new rankings page performs much faster, delivering you the information you need without the wait. It also shows up to 100 per page instead of 50 now that it's programmed more intelligently
Wonder who the top ranked players in the world are? Look no further.
We have developed an algorithm for calculating the top ranked players that doesn't penalize people for participating in only one or two brackets. Well rounded players with highly rated 2v2, 3v3, and 5v5 teams will still tend to come up on top.
We are bringing the competition to your guild! All guilds that have a member on a 2000+ rated team is now globally ranked. The rankings are calculated by adding up the composite score of each played in a guild that plays on a 2000+ rated team.
We're very proud of the new site and hope everyone will enjoy it! As always, if you have any thoughts, feedback, or suggestions please let us know in the Site Feedback forum.

Wow, I actually rubbed my eyes when I replied to a topic which I had open for some hours and saw the differences... wow! What's the new/old font face if I may ask? New looks like Arial, but what was the old?
Yes the new is a standard Arial the old was Verdana.
