Blizzard is raging!

As they unleash a storm of exciting things to make the game great again.
Remember how said that it is certain that BFA pre-patch would arrive 40 days prior to the official release date? We are not so sure anymore. The reason is that Blizzard are getting more active and push increasingly more content and changes onto Beta servers. Personally, we cannot hold back our excitement about this. In particular about the fact that Blizzard continues to balance classes despite their previous claims that they're done with the process. Also, there's no word about permanent activation of the Mage Tower. Sure, they might do it on Monday, but we think they would've announced such an event at least a week early before annoncing the arrival of pre-patch

But we're not going to discuss those, rather we're going to look at the information posted in Blizzard's blog about upcoming changes to PvP Rating in Battle for Azeroth and how they might influence you and our service.

Short answer: it gets better for all of us.

Easier to understand.

First and foremost: the Rating System would become structured and easier to understand as it would get a set of formal brackets people can use to track their progress. The specific rewards available in each of these brackets which will be clearly shown in the game’s interface so players can work their way toward earning the items they want most.

  • Combatant: 1400–1599
  • Challenger: 1600–1799
  • Rival: 1800–2099
  • Duelist: 2100–2399
  • Gladiator: 2400+
Additionally, once you have reached Gladiator status - you would be able to see your standing within the region in-game! A handy addition to track your competitors as well as a measure of your success.

Participation is key.

Previously we have already covered the fact that Prestige system is going to become account-wide in Battle for Azeroth, which makes acquiring those rewards much easier. Now they've announced that they're going to change how players can earn Vicious mounts. Currently, you have a choice of either winning 100 Rated 3v3 Arena matches or 40 Rated Battlegrounds, but in the upcoming expansion playing any Rated Arena bracket would count toward this number! This is a reason to celebrate for any arena enthusiast out there, as, let's be honest, there's no objective reason why 3v3 is chosen as the only option. For our clients, this would mean that farming a Vicious Saddle (at least partially) becomes a free feature with any of our Arena packages!

Rewards, rewards everywhere! Especially for the high-rated.

Conquest Points make a return the same form as they used before. The reason behind this is... to offset the current randomness of rewards. In addition to this Blizzard said that they're going to introduce a single piece of raid-quality gear available each week, which you can get by filling up a Conquest Point gauge. They're also going to add a weekly chest reward for PvP players.

Yes, you've read that right: PvP is getting its own weekly reward in a similar style to Mythic+ keys. The item level of the reward will be based on the highest bracket in which you won at least one game last week. But you can't have Gladiator standing in 3v3 and gain the reward by playing a single match of 2v2, where you have 1200. You will have to win a game in the appropriate bracket. This system is probably going to replace current weekly reward system, because, otherwise, the sheer amount of rewards a PvP player would get is... pretty obscene. It gets especially interesting when you think about the fact that PvP is getiing a way to acquire guaranteed high ilvl rewards, and since Legion has removed any actual difference between PvP and PvE gear and Blizzard are keeping it that way, it might become obligatory for PvE players to do PvP just for the sake of said rewards.

Quite a mixed bag, to be honest.

Yet still, a lot of people on different forums have already expressed how these changes have reignited their interest in Rated PvP. For us and our clients, this means that people will be able to get more out of our services for the same price.
