Season 8 Rewards | 06.13.2017, 06:29 PM

Hey folks,

Here are the preliminary rewards for Season 8! Where mah day-early donuts, Keith?!?!

First, the items that will be given to each individual based on which tier they place in based on their rating:

  • Battle Flag
  • Framed Stronghold Decoration
  • Character Flair
  • Title

Second, the Top 96 folks will additionally receive:

  • Title
  • Character Flair

Last but not least, the individual items which can be purchased with Season 8 tokens:

  • PvP weapon set (one of each weapon type)
  • New PvP inspired Stronghold Decorations
  • Color crystal
  • Mount

In the next few weeks we will work on getting you an exact list of what each item is along with screenshots. As a reminder, the season will be ending with Game Update 5.4. Let us know your thoughts!

    Pity ranked is still shit. Much as I’d like a shot at some of these goodies, a rating based on luck will never be worth playing for.

    • Ramzzess

      Ranked is literally the easiest thing in this game. Anyone can get Silver tier for the weapons. Just try it instead of bashing it.

      • Ben Gimson

        I did try it, and I kept ending up with DPS who couldn’t carry their weight. Lost most matches, and every loss damaged my rating, so hours of effort pissed away. Not sure how something that depends entirely on luck can be ‘literally the easiest thing’ in the game, but at least someone enjoys it, I guess.

        • Ramzzess

          I wouldn’t say it relies entirely on luck. The people who climb to tier-1/top 3 aren’t there because of luck. If you are a good player then you’ll be able to carry most of the matches. Every now and then you get a game that is clearly one-sided and that’s fine. Losses happen. That’s the nature of queueing solo. Now if you’re hanging around 1000-1100 constantly then there’s something wrong with you as a player and not the other way around.

          • Ben Gimson

            I imagine the people at the very top get there through group ranked? A tank can’t carry a match anyway, and after trying for several hours every other night for a week or two with my rating barely moving up at all I decided I wasn’t going to bother again. I did manage to get up to the lowest bracket by logging in a tank on a second account and queuing with that toon, but I can’t be arsed to do that each season.

            Rating should be calculated on individual performance, or at the very least it shouldn’t go down when you lose. Otherwise what’s the point?

    • Ramzzess

      Either way, the rewards are underwhelming for the time that it took to announce.

    A few weeks to write text and take a few screenshots. Also, no ranked armor.

    • Fred Garvin

      Maybe he’ll post it a day early and get a cookie and a pat on the ass from Keith.

  • Oh well never going to happen :/

  • tommygunz

    most the people on my server they trade wins for money so the top ranked are actually who paid the most for those win not who actually decent in pvp

  • Duke BigSnacks Macias

    All I want to know is … Are the black saber crystals coming back and how much will they cost?

  • John Doe

    Ranked was and is still ruined by hackers like JEeze and .co all the leaderboards are a joke and not a showcase of real skill. Ranked should be removed and reinstate the 10v10 ranked WZ’s.
