Arena Season 1 and PvP Adjustments

Recommended Posts

As we've reached the required number of teams, arena season one will begin on Wednesday, 13th. To entice more players to participate, we're planning the following incentives and adjustments:
- S1 Arena gear will not require any rating, apart from weapons that are going to remain in the 2050 bracket
- Arena Flush will be performed on Monday morning
- Arena matches will end in a draw with no rating change after 45 minutes
- Arena Queue system will function based on hidden matchmaker rating. MMR of individual players will not reset when switching teams.
- Team and Personal rating above 2000 will decay by 50 every week if the team or a player have not met the criteria of weekly games played to receive Arena Points. NOTE: In terms of personal rating only the players that did not meet the criteria will be affected. If the entire team has not played the required number of games, all players above 2000 rating will have their personal rating reduced.
- Only players with their personal rating within 150 of the team rating will be eligible to receive rewards at the end of the season.
- Playing 15 daily arena games will award 50 Arena Points. Additionally, every consecutive arena match played will award 2 AP for winning and 1 AP for losing
- 5v5 matches will not count towards daily rewards and will grant fewer arena points during weekly flush. Gladiator titles will also not be achievable through this bracket. 
- Similarly, winning 10 battlegrounds in one day will award an additional 1000 honor points. Every consecutive win after that will also grant a bonus of 75 honor (25 honor points for a loss)

The requirements and percentages for end of season arena rewards will be announced at a later date, most likely mid-season.

Rules and punishments:
- Players found to be fixing/wintrading arenas will lose the gear they acquired, have their rating and arena points reset and will also have their accounts banned for a period of time depeneding on the severity of their violation. Furthermore, they will not be eligible for any rewards at the end of that season regardless of the rating they achieve with any teams they create/join after that. They will be able to participate normally again in the next season. Further wintrading after the initial punishment will result in either an increased account lock time or a permanent ban.
- Any other attempts at abusing any of the PvP systems to gain unfair advantages will result in punishments according to the severity of the violation.

We believe that the proposed changes are necessary to ensure a healthier PvP ecosystem in an environment with a smaller pool of players compared to official realms and we hope to encourage more players to participate in PvP activities. We will be closely monitoring the situation once the changes go live and will adjust them (especially numbers) if needed.
