This evening marks the end of the our Olympic Arena competition. We have had a fantastic time with the competition and watching so many teams compete. We hope you guys have had a good time as well.

Now that the competition is complete we need to ask everyone who competed and qualified for entry into the raffle to go over to the AJ Olympics leader boards and verify you appear there with the correct rating for any applicable teams. Unfortunately during this competition the Armory has been slow to update. Because of this we are going to continue to update the entries until after maintenance this Wednesday in the hope that Armory will have updated by then.

If you do not appear on our Olympic leader boards or you appear but at the wrong rating, please post a link to your team (in the event that your team page on Armory has updated) in this thread and an in game screen shot of your team's vitals.

After we are convinced everyone eligible has been included we will draw 5 3v3 teams and 5 2v2 teams. The members of the first four 2v2 and 3v3 teams drawn will receive a WWI08 Tyrael pet card. The remaining 2v2 and 3v3 teams will receive Wrath of the Lich King beta keys. The winners will be announced in another news post and we will contact the members individually. So stay posted!

We hope everyone had a good time.

My team reached 2142 yesterday, lost a few games down to 2067, and our druid emologged on us. We're listed as 3 tickets now, and not 5.

I was under the impression that it was based off your top rating, and not your rating when the competition closed. Otherwhise why can people disband teams?

"Wow, they were a good team", "Yeah, we should get lots of points from them", "Wtf, 5 points?", "Oh, it's an AJOlympics team too, sigh"

My 3v3 was at 2106, dropped to 1950, and is no longer there, but my 2v2 at 2027 is still listed even though IT dropped. *sigh*

It's just a timing issue. We go by this to see if teams made the list. The only time we said we will take your highest rating is if you break the 2200 barrier (because there is no higher bracket).

As for teams dropping below 2k, since we only keep track of teams 2k+, we have no way of knowing if you dropped below, so consider yourself lucky.

@Tyveris

We already have 2k, but if I were to leave this team to just play with some friends would I no longer be qualified for my 25 tickets?

If the team is listed on our site at the final rating you played it to, it should no longer receive updates and you should be fine. Taking a screenshot of the olympics page to be safe wouldn't hurt.

I was leveling a rogue to 2050, felt pretty sad steamrolling AJOlympics teams while not being one yourself :(

If it is at the final rating the team was at, yes.

@Tyveris

My team is planning to move to medivh within the next day, but is entered in the competition under area 52 for 25 entries. Will this affect weather we are eligible or not for the competition?

No you will still be eligible, but thanks for the heads up if we need to find you :)

So wouldn't this more or less means the contest doesn't end till Wednesday, since the teams will keep updating?

And where it says "after maintenance this wednesday," is that a typo or does armory go under maintenance on wednesdays?

EU armory has maintenance Wednesday. The US one is Tuesday. We are waiting for both to finish.

If the armory is lagging on updates, anyone trying to get last minute games in now won't show up until after the drawing are complete. So the competition is over, we are just making sure we have all the teams that competed on our list before we do the drawing.

But basically if you lvl a team completely on Tuesday being EU, and you're lucky enough for it to update in time, you're in still? :p
