WotLK Access Reset
Posted 19 November 2008 - 04:13 PM
Arena Junkies is viewing it as a fresh start as well. The site was created on the premise that it would be an intellectual exchange between experts and a place less experienced players could ask questions and improve their game. In keeping with this we will be reverting all Junkie's who have not received Gladiator in a previous season back to Member status.
We feel that over the past 4 seasons there have been too many chances for users to slip in due to buying PR/Shoulders, dramatically long seasons, or win trading. As always - everyone in the Member user group are welcomed participants in the discussion and encouraged to post in the Ask a Gladiator forum and the forums for both Members & Junkies. Having your Junkie access removed does not mean you can never be a Junkie or post in those sections again, it simply means you have to meet the 2K+ rating or Gladiator requirement in Season 5.
We are doing a comprehensive update of our user base and want to make sure people weren't inappropriately tagged as inactive and we want to give any users time to fix their previous Gladiator status.
How should you prepare?
1) Please update your accounts if you have transferred or changed your character recently. We need to know as we can't track these changes automatically.
2) If you received Gladiator in a previous season but it is not noted on your account please PM me with a link to the Hall of Fame. If it is S3 Gladiator send a screenshot showing your mount and the achievement.
We will be making these changes before S5 arrives. Should you have any questions about what the different user groups are please refer to this post: Forum Rules.

Where do we post to reclaim access once 2k has been reached in s5?

We are constantly checking for armory updates. Once armory displays you with a 2k+ team we should update within a day. If it doesn't post in the Name Change/Transfer forum for an update.

Probably around a week. We still have updating to do and want to give people time to get the name changes done so we have all the gladiator titles done properly.

It only effects those who are currently Junkies and do NOT have the Gladiator title. You have S3 Gladiator so you will not be effected.

Partially that, but moreso that we largely revert to preBC times where people barely have any resilience, so melee classes and shield-wearing healers have a much easier time than cloth wearers until deep into the season.
It's unfortunate because for that very reason we'll see a number regain access that are simply bad, just because of the disparity in balance. Can't really get around that without waiting an inordinate amount of waiting time to award access, though.

I would also like to point out that perhaps resetting access for any Gladiator before Season 3 as well? Some of the older Gladiator's who stopped playing but still feel the need to post sometimes do not have any idea what is going on.

Picking any arbitrary season for cutoff of gladiator wouldn't make any sense as the game is different from any season now with Wrath released. We are basically using gladiator as a fair estimation of someone who probably knows what they are talking about. If they are no longer playing the game, chances are they won't bother posting here anymore. If they are posting here, chances are they will be playing the game again.
Perhaps further into Wrath if it becomes an issue, we can look at no longer letting people with BC glad keep access if they don't continue to earn it, but what we have described is going to be our starting point.

I really hope blizzard does something about this. because the Impossibleness of cleave to beat any comp, really, is just an excruciating process that involves immense skill and luck. Buff warriors death knights and pallys, nerf mages and rogues.
