Another week, another batch of leaderboard updates. Did you make the cut this time around?

NA Qualifying Points

EU Qualifying Points

How the Leaderboards work:
  • Qualifying points are gained only in paid tournaments, and are awarded based on your placement in a paid tournament.
  • We’ll be updating these leader boards daily (during the week) to show the progression of the points.
  • We’ll be displaying roughly the top 100 players for both the US and EU servers. We’ll finish off the top 100 by showing all players who tie for the final position.
  • This method of displaying the QP’s is temporary until the full system comes online.

If you recall, we were recently told that there was going to be a WvW ratings reset at the beginning of the month. If you're wondering what happened to that, ArenaNet has decided to not implement the reset. Here's an update from Habib Loew:

Update 2/7/2013:
We’ve been keeping a very close watch on this week’s matchups and, despite our concerns regarding the recent population shifts, it seems that many of the games are quite competitive. At the same time we’ve been evaluating some possible changes to the math we use to calculate ratings. After examining a number of new methodologies for weighting the outcomes of matches we have found that our existing formulas already do pretty much what we want them to do. Certainly none of the candidates that we tried yielded better results.

In light of the strong community response to the idea of a WvW ratings reset, the results of our ratings formula investigations, and our data on the current matchups we have decided not to reset the WvW ratings at this time. All existing WvW ratings will be preserved and the rating calculation methodology will remain unchanged. Any existing mismatches should be corrected by the system in relatively short order. Now that there is less volatility in the player base for each world we expect the quality of matches to improve more quickly. This is both because the rating system is operating in a less unpredictable environment and because more stable teams tend to produce better results.

Thank you all for your feedback on this matter, and for your patience while we explored the various options. The community response was a key element in our decision making process. [Source]

On February 26th, players can expect the second update to Guild Wars 2's Flame and Frost living world content. Aside from the story progression, other additions will include a new PvP map, guild missions, rated team play matches in sPvP, and the ability to pick and choose daily achievements. The expected World Vs World changes will be seen in March at the earliest.

If you haven't had a chance to participate in the prelude events in Wayfarer Foothills and Diessa Plataeu, make sure to get those out of the way in these next few weeks. Dulfy has a great guide for last month's content update for those looking for a bit of direction.
