Arena Season 2!
1 month ago

While the Seasonal Arena Tournament may be over, the excitement doesn't stop here on Karazhan! We would like to announce that Arena Season 2 is starting on 6th November, 2020 at 6 PM (CET)! 

With a start of a new Arena Season, we will convert portion of your PvP resources and distribute rewards for previous Arena Season (make sure to check your mailbox!). The rewards for the Arena Season 1 are as follows.  Note new, we will keep the same rewards format for Season 2 as well:

  • 1st Place (2v2/3v3 Tournament) — Permanent Gladiator title, Swift Nether Drake (with Artisan Riding) and 75 Atlantiss Points for each player in the team.
  • 2nd-4th Place (2v2 Tournament), 2nd-6th (3v3 Tournament) — Gladiator title, Swift Nether Drake (with Artisan Riding) and 50 Atlantiss Points for each player in the team.
  • Top 3% Arena Teams (Ladder) — Duelist title
  • Top 3-10% Arena Teams (Ladder) — Rival title
  • Top 10-20% Arena Teams (Ladder) — Challenger title


Season 2 details

We've received a great amount feedback from our players, and have thus decided to introduces changes into our rating distribution system by updating "k-value" to 32 30 (original).

During the season, Team and Personal rating above 2000 will decay by 25 (down from 50) points every week if the team or a player have not met the criteria of 10 weekly games played.

Arena and Honor Points (quests) rewards for completing the daily quests "A Call to Battle" and "The Arena Calls" have been changed and will be dynamically adjusted - including 3v3 Arena daily cap.

The Battlegear sets will be added into the game, to help new players get their feet into Battleground and Arenas. The pieces can be purchased by becoming honored with Cenarion Expedition, Honor Hold/Thrallmar, Keepers of Time, Lower City, and the Sha'tar. (This might be postponed untill November 11!)

All Arena Season 1 items besides weapons, will be available for Honor Points and still being sold by Vixton Pinchwhistle.

Arena Season 2 gear becomes available on November 11 with an introduction of "2.1 Itemization". You will buy new Arena Gear from Krixel Pinchwhistle in Area 52, Netherstorm. This time both shoulders and weapons require Personal and Team rating to purchase (2000 for shoulders, 1850 for weapons).


Arena Tournaments

First Seasonal Arena Tournament turned out to be a great success, with livestream gathering 1614 unique viewers and 82 918 of total minutes watched! We are really proud of these statistics and decided to put more time into preparation for future Arena Tournament livestream.

Due the great interest that we've seen in the PvP community, we are currently in the stage of talking about minor Arena Tournaments with open qualifiers. More information will appear soon.

On top of that, we are also debating on choosing the money prize pool for the upcoming Seasonal Arena Tournament (Season 2).


To close out this news, I (tsu) would like to thank everyone for trying out PvP on Karazhan and trusting in my decisions. Arena Tournament livestream wouldn't turn out as good as it did, if it wasn't for our community offering help with it! During the Season, I also received tremendous amount of feedback from you, which helped me a lot and I am very greatful for. I hope that upcoming and future Arena Seasons will be even better! See you on the Arena!
