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.

    Well, if it's anything like the other pre-patch events, you'll have to spend a couple of hours on it...and then back to GW2 (instead of completing the event on every alt).

    Even if it was, the Theramore event is so boring, predictable and badly written from everything that I've seen so far that I wouldn't log in to play it if you paid me.

    Not surprised both Blizz games are getting big patches that day.

    You must be a psychic because they haven't actually shown much about the event yet besides the blown up Theramore and a few little things here and there. (Mostly data mined stuff)

    Just about everyone called this. Blizzard is extremely predictable with patch releases. If they have a big patch coming out and a competitor is releasing around the same day, they'll line up the release dates.

    Patch release August 28 same as Guild Wars 2 release date. No coincidence i think. Sadly...

    I know :P, but lots of people were going for September, so I guess my post was a bit of a "I told you so" or, as Sheldon Cooper would put it, "I informed you thusly".

    Congrats to the players on August 28. Guild Wars 2 and MoP changes will be a lot of content for those who are going to school a week before it starts.

    I like how Blizzard is a villain/pathetic if they, a BUSINESS, try to release content to match the release of a COMPETING BUSINESS.
