PvP Season 3 Disruption Update

As we previously noted, a bug on December 31 caused Season 3 to unexpectedly end for Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds. We were able to fix the issue early on January 3, and the fix retained rating changes and tier updates that were obtained by players during the unexpected off-season.

During the time between the bug and the fix, a small number of players advanced to a rating that provides a meaningful reward, and then have not seen that reflected in-game in the resumed Season. To address this, we’re deploying a hotfix:

  • Players who earned the appropriate PvP rating for a BFA Season 3 title while the season was inactive, but then dropped below the required rating before the season could be reactivated, should earn that title when first logging in after the weekly reset.

In this region, the weekly reset occurs tomorrow morning (Tuesday, January 7).

Furthermore, there is one more full week to go until Season 3 ends. Good luck out there as you push for the finish!

Patch 8.3 PTR – Updated Male Worgen Eyes
Male Worgen eyes have received some shine compared to their live versions on the 8.3 PTR! The shimmer is more noticeable on the eyes that don’t glow.
