With the release of every expansion or season, including Mists of Pandaria, we've reset the Junkies User group and tweaked the access requirements to be in line with what actual player ratings were. A Junkie is either a grizzled veteran player that has achieved a Gladiator Title in the past or a player vying for a Gladiator Title in this current season. Throughout the seasons, the rating required for a Gladiator Title has varied a lot: some Battlegroups in season 2 had a cutoff as low as 2050, while seasons 8 and 9 saw cutoffs as high as 2700.

Based on current ladder rankings, we've decided to lower the Junkies rating requirement to 2200. This is intended to reflect current ratings players are achieving on the ladders, and to create a more reasonable expectation for players striving to become a Junkies.

This change should take effect over the next week, so please wait while the user groups update themselves!

Very good idea, very bad number. People who buy 2200 carries will now be able to post the entire season. Make the rating required be 2250, heck even 2225.

I would have went with 2300, but more activity is always good I guess.

You just better moderate the trolls if they come

2300 seems like a desirable rating.

The rating of 2200 is based on the same formula that AJ uses every season to determine the appropriate access rating.

Other changes, alongside this, are also likely to come though. This was just something where a switch could be flipped.

I don't think this is the best change considering the ladders right now.

Finally ! Hello every1

Agreed with some1 stating that a bare 2200 is a bit too low, 2250 or 2300 is the way to go
