MMO-Champion - PvP Season 14 Ending Soon, The Elder Scrolls Online Beta Key Giveaway
PvP Season 14 Ending Soon

Blood, sweat, and tears stain the Arena floors and Battleground fields—a grim chronicle of the hard-fought battles many of you have survived. Once again, the time has come for the victorious to be heralded, and champions to be rewarded!

Season 14 is coming to an end as early as two weeks from now. On that day, we’ll begin the process of determining end-of-season reward eligibility, which could take up to two weeks to complete.

Qualifying players should note the following in order to ensure you receive your just rewards:

  • Please do not transfer your characters to another realm or faction until after Season 14 has ended.
  • Award distribution for Season 14, including titles and mounts, could take up to two weeks after the season ends, though our goal is to finish in one.
  • Only players who have a rating of 1,000 or better are considered when calculating rewards.

At the end of the season, Conquest Points will be converted into Honor Points, and any Honor above 4,000 will be converted into in-game currency at a rate of 35 silver per point. There are a few other things to keep in mind once the season ends:

  • The Honor Points cap will remain at 4,000.
  • All Season 14 items will have their costs converted into Honor Points equivalent to their previous Conquest Points cost, with the exception of any items that have a rating requirement.
  • Season 14 items with rating requirements will no longer be available for purchase.

Season 15 Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds will begin approximately one week after the end of Season 14, and all Personal Ratings will be reset at the same time. Also note that Arena and Rated Battleground matches will not be available during the break between seasons. Once Season 15 begins, players will battle for the right to equip Prideful Gladiator gear, the most powerful PvP gear in game to date with an Item Level of 550.

Lastly, as of the beginning of Season 14, PvP players no longer needed to join or create an Arena team to compete. You can find more information about this earlier change in our Patch 5.4 Arena Update blog.

    I watched the vids in their media link.... I have zero interest in this - they're modding it after DAoC, but barely upgraded the graphics. In game vids look a bit like Rift, but more chaotic. The races are unimaginative and the lore is meh. Granted, I only played Daggerfall (and played the crap out of that buggy buggy game) - and had no interest in anything else by Bethesda - so I'm biased, but come on, you showcase your game on Youtube, you should at least make it look good. I agree with the SWTOR comments - Bioware kept it under wraps for a long time... this does not bode well. In my opinion.

    Yeah to anyone wondering. ESO will just be another MMO. Nothing special about it at all. I played the beta and was bored to the ground by it. All the Skyrim fanboys will be pissed like hell after paying 69$ for the game and then being disappointed as fuck. Calling it now. Take a screenshot of my post

Having played any number of MMOs, this just doesn't have the "it" factor that the MMO Prophecies have told us is coming. It just feels like another Rift/SWTOR/GW2/FFXIV. Honestly, I would wait until WildStar. Or, hell, .. EverQuest Next. At least both of them are TRYING something new-ish to spark life into the MMO genre.

    Can't stop laughing here, also Wildstar and Everquest?, you must be really dumb.

    You're VERY naive if you think Wildstar or EQ will be anything else than another Rift/SWTOR/GW2/FFXIV/TESO. Especially Wildstar is actively being killed by the hype going on about it. NDA was lifted a bit and players like Kungen streamd Wildstar on twitch, and the large majority of feedback was extremely negative. Wildstar is going to fail just like TESO.

    ESO will be more successful than Wildstar, the game is being killed by the hype it is getting & It really sad because it was a good game until they changed all the fun stuff. Just people are saying it something its not like like every other game before it. Alot of my friends who were interested in Wildstar before have lost interest & decided they will try out WoD & ESO instead.

    Wildstar is a good game, but its just another MMO. It's not this juggernaut people claim it is. Beta is the best way to see the game for what it truly is & what it will be. A niche MMO with a small dedicated community that is casual & non-competitive like other MMOs have, it will never reach the competitiveness WoW has.

    Talk about misinformation by a potential Blizzard shill. What a blatant lie. Wildstar word of mouth has been amazing. I have been following it all just about every message board and media source. Did you see the customization video? You can customize your own mounts. Wildstar is a theme-park with many, mini sandbox elements.

    I didn't say WIldstar is going to be a bad game in any way. I'm sure some people will have their fun with it. By saying "it's just another Rift/Tera/Aion/Star wars, etc" I'm just saying it will have similar success like those games(that is, very little). Not many people will play it and hardly anyone will talk about it 1 month after release

    How im amazed at the amount of white knights who are defending ZeniMax douche bag attitude. Are you seriously that mentaly retarded that you accept anything the developers do? Its an obvious moneygrab, and if you dont see that then gj ZeniMax for brainwashing your disgusting brain with great success ! Its just shocking too see the developers getting away with this cause either kids or mentaly challanged adults will cough up the money for that shit. And no a mount is not the same thing as a race you dimwit. How would you feel if they locked Pandaren or Humans in Wow? Oh no sorry, you have to pay more to be able to play the race you played through all the other warcraft games, sry breh! So gj Zenimax, humanity is apprently that retarded that they will bend over for anything, and letting them destroy a good IP with pure bs, so all you fanbois, bend over and let Zenimax squeeze that big dick of theirs upp your ass a bit deeper.

    2 other human races. Pick those, customize them to look like Imperial, GG, money saved.

    Can i get ur ID, i would love to rage, uhm i mean raid with u sometime..

    I do think its a dickish move that Curse gets 500k keys and basicly tells u to buy curse premium or u wont get in Beta. Thats just selling beta keys. Did you inform the TESO makers that you were gonna make 500k x 3,- from it?

    Not going to support a developer like that, so no im not going to buy the game even. Even before all of this i had 0 interest in the game since its been going downhill from Oblivion (dumbed down to child level) not what got me into Morrowind, no sir.

    People really need to stop using the old DAOC engine. Warhammer sucked with it, Rift sucked with it, and Swotr sucked with it.

    Remember if you get a key and get to play that streaming it will get the beta account banned and if on twitch your account will be suspended

    Reasons for these 2 things would be: DMCA and NDA violations

    SWTOR didn't use the same engine. DAOC and Warhammer used the Gamebryo engine, swtor used the HeroEngine
