Arena Rating and Matching System Change
New change to the arena match making system just announced earlier this evening.
There will be a new, persistent rating system that should keep top-rated players facing other top-rated players, regardless of the bracket in which their current team sits. We’ll have more information to come on this soon. (source)
Obviously not much is known about this new “persistent rating system”, how it will work, what the parameters will be, etc. That said, it’s great to see Blizzard acknowledging yet another pretty big issue within the game and actively pursuing a solution.
It seems like there are a variety of potential problems with a system like this. For example, I consider myself a top arena player, but I often help out my less skilled or casual guildmates and friends to level up their teams and get points.
Can all of these factors be included in the equation to truly make a viable system? Probably so, at least to a degree where you aren’t going to have 2000+ rated players playing teams around the 1500 bracket.
