I think wintrading has always taken place in arena, but on a couple of occasions certain exploits allowed people to do it without any effort, causing ratings to explode.

Last time this happened was around the end of October 2012.

I also recall it happening in season 9 or 10 (or both) - does anyone remember a more precise date?

Wintrading have allways and will allways happen in arena, its just a fact and there is no 100% bulletproof way to stop it.
Jacquel "The Druid" is currently not playing wow.

Shout out too Ardnut the second most amazing and friendly person ive met on AJ

Should bring back the old arena statistics feature so people can go sherlocking after them

Or just put in the statistics :

arena experience per season & brackets
rbg experience per season

Adding the comp would be to heavy i think.

Thanks, checked my old screenshots and it seems to have started some time during december 2010 and got fixed early january 2011. IIRC you didn't lose MMR if you left the arena before you lost.


Does anyone recall any other occasions when something like this happened? Really helps when trying to find new partners
