depends. this change would probably put the amount of glad spots below that of previous seasons, even though arena participation is up. It's also a pretty unfair way of handing out titles, forcing people to queue in the last week. What about people who are on holiday?
A lot of players in the higher end might not end up getting the title lowering the cutoffs though. I'd rather see an active 2200 player get rewarded than someone who has been camping 2400 since october.
If you're on holiday do you actual care about a video game title?
