This Friday, February 1st, ArenaNet will be implementing a reset for World Vs World server ratings. The reasoning behind this is the large player population shifts that resulted from the news of the server lock-down. Habib Loew explains exactly how the reset will work.
- We’ll let the current matchup play out. Since free transfers were available during the first part of this matchup we don’t want it to count towards the new ratings.
- When the matchup rolls over on Friday, February 1st we’ll post the final ratings & rankings. The new ordering will determine the groupings for the next matchup as usual.
- After the new matchup has started on February 1st we’ll reset all the ratings (and deviation & volatility) behind the scenes.
What do you all think of this? Is it necessary to let server ratings readjust after the large population shift?
