Default New Arena Season, Arena Tweaks, 84 Hour Weekly Limit

This season will be solo queue 3v3 partial anonymity. Players under 2500 rating will be anonymous.


Changes that have been implemented due to feedback for future premade (3v3 and 1v1) seasons are:

-Matchmaking changed to a more competitive method. Teams will be more likely to be matched to other teams that: a) are closer to their rating and b) they have not fought recently. This will inevitably slow down the queue, however, it will prevent the cheesy strategy of off-hours queueing against the same few crappy teams and beating them repeatedly for steady gains. Queues will be especially slow and painful for teams who try to dodge specific teams.

-Matchmaking will not match teams that are more than 2500 rating apart.

-Tweaks to the gain/loss rating system. There will be more points gained and lost than there were this season, so each match will be more important.

-Queues per day for premade seasons has been reduced to 25

-The minimum level of participation in arena has been increased to 60. Even at that level you may just be a punching bag.


Account Sharing Nerf
In order to limit the unfair benefits of account sharing and illegal botting, there is now an 84 hour weekly limit on each character's activity. Any action other than chatting counts as activity. You will have 60/30/10/5 minute warnings. When it runs out you will be exhausted and unable to do anything but chat or log out. If you are in combat, you will almost surely die. You will be removed from your group. If you are out of town, you are stuck there. The vast majority of players never need to even think about this, since 12 hours per day every day for 7 days in a row is inhuman.

Feel free to stay logged on all the time - that doesn't count as activity. If your character isn't doing stuff or in a group that is fighting in the same square as you and dragging you into combat, you're not active.
