And how does it differ between long and short seasons?

Longer seasons, higher cut-off obviously, more people play, more people boosted, more games played etc.

You also have to take into account that the top players have their alt characters as well, so the longer the season is , the more rating they will reach with their characters. This will cluster the top ranks of course.

 

The real part of your question is the variance I believe, if I am not mistaken, you are also curious about the players who are getting the glad title in the end? If there would be any positive data showing who obtained gladiator and for how long they were in the glad range throughout the season, that would be awesome.

Whatever it is at now mid-way you can add +200 or +300 by end of season for Glad and above.

Yes, since the current EU alliance cutoff is around 2476 and if we assume that Legion S1 will end at mid-december, the glad cutoff would be 2676 for alliance, but if it will end around mid-January, then it will definitely go up to 2776+

 

This is usually what happens, but we also have to take into account other factors (even though the is a little chance of experiencing surprises). At Legion S1, we see constant PvP hotfixes, which affects the balancing / meta issues. So, this could have an effect on the prediction stated above, and cause it not to happen etc.

 

But history tends to repeat itself :)
