Dear PvP Community,

 

I saw someone complaining that only 30 people got rank 1 on one of the threads. This is the best thing Blizzard could ever have done. If it were up to me rank 1 would go to only three players of whichever team was on top. The definition of rank 1 in wow is literally the top players on the PVP ladder.

 

Rank 1 is no longer a joke and actually requires you to be among the best WoW players. Too many people want to get rewards simply for participating.

players I know got challenger at 2050 on Horde meaning the title is no longer a joke.

 

I personally would like to thank blizzard for making pvp competitive and meaningful again. Definitely a step in the right direction. If you want participation awards go raid.

 

Yours Sincerely,

Retired PvPer

When did people get rank 1 for participating?  I don't think you understand how the titles work.  

 

The rating (1500, 2000, 3000, 9001) is irrelevant.  What matters is the percentages.  If, for example, the Gladiator cutoff were 2000,  99.5% of people failed to reach 2000.  In other words, 2000 is a damned high rating relative to the rating the overwhelming majority of players achieved.

 

Rank 1 still means--as it has always meant--that a person (okay, technically, character) has achieved a higher rating than 99.9% of players.

It just doesn't seem right, blizzard probably did a blizzard and is now feigning ignorance. A quick glance at the old ladder would suggest that this time only players with 50+ wins were included in the player pool, for whatever reason.

I agree, but there needs to be a transparency to it (with updated ladders and accurate API), so people can track what is going on and they can be informed about their standing.

I think this is retarded. Gladiator has always been top 0.5% and R1 has always been top 0.1% nothing has changed except separating the titles into separate factions.

 The only "meaning" to any of these titles is what you make of it, really. I generally play w/o names or titles on (too much distracting information) and I've been impressed by players of varying skill levels and "titles". Titles never really meant anything, the only thing that speaks about your play is really just how you play. 

Some players who have made genuinely sick plays, from my experience, may not even have a title.

I know you're prolly trolling, but it isn't a good thing since the %'s haven't changed afaik. it means that there's less arena participation than before, and the skill level will be lower due to this. that being said, I think the participation problem is partially to do with people playing less with their alts, since their alts didn't have full artifact traits / had low artifact knowledge, and we'll see a rise in alts in s2 which means more r1's/glads.

 

 

 

also expecting a rise in arena participation due to the r1 title...

I had three alts, not gonna play any of them anymore. all my mythic+ friends have quit the game (they also casually queued arena*). GL with a higher participation. 10 r1 title slots inc.

I don't play these days but it's easy for me to see just how poor arena participation is from watching streams. I've been watching jahmilli a lot recently and in NA on the top end it's just the same people queing into each other every day over and over. I thought it was bad in wod but it's even worse in legion, there's probably around 40-50 people who consistently que at a really high level which is just sad.

I find it funny how people are making a big deal out of the fact that blizz probably only counted people with 50+ wins/1k rating for calculations, doesn't matter if there's 50k "active" arena players or 150k, either way it's a pathetic amount.
