PvP Season 11 Ending Soon

Arena and Rated Battleground Season 11 is scheduled to end on Wednesday, August 29. At that point, we will determine who is eligible for the end-of-season rewards, a process that should take approximately one week. It's very important for players who feel that they may be eligible for Arena titles and/or the Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Twilight Drake to refrain from transferring their characters to another realm or faction until after Season 11 ends. The awarding of Season 11 titles and mounts will occur approximately 1 week after the season ends.

At the end of the season, Conquest Points will be converted to Honor Points, possibly exceeding the 4,000 point Honor cap. There will be no cap on Honor until Mists of Pandaria is released on September 25. At that time, any Honor accrued above the 4,000-point cap will be converted into gold at a rate of 35 silver per point.

All Season 11 items will cost Honor Points (equivalent to their previous Conquest Point cost) when the season ends, with the exception of any items with rating requirements attached. These items will no longer be available for purchase.

The next Arena and Rated Battleground season will begin for level-90 players approximately one week after Mists of Pandaria launches. During the break between seasons, all Rated Battleground and Arena matches will be unavailable. Matchmaking (MMR), Team, and Personal Ratings will all be wiped when Season 12 begins.

    This would be the time to say "Man I wish Skirmishes were in game when S11 ends". Oh wait, they'll never come back.

    Diablo III 1.0.4: Aug 28th
    WoW 5.0.4: Aug 28th (not the best decision -in my opinion- there should be at least 1 week difference between a D3 and WoW patch...)
    Oh and... GW2: Aug 28th

    And who said that there is no concurency between GW2 and Wow? Then why Blizzard will try to spoil GW2 release by releasing pre-patch, as they have done with SWTOR and 4.3?

    Trying to counter a blockbuster game with a small, insignificant, and ridiculous patch prroves but one thing, the narrowness, limitation and fear that Blizzard is having.

    5.0 entails both of those along with account-wide achievements, so yes.
