    Patch 4.2 on June 28th, Rage of the Firelands Wallpaper, 06/16 Notes Update

    Oh well I guess that was a lot of news post today. Don't miss the other 2 important announcements:



    Patch 4.2 to be released on June 28th
    As I mentioned earlier this week, the late PTR build on wednesday means we won't see the patch next week, but the week after. The official site points to a release date on June 28th.



    Patch 4.2 - Rage of the Firelands Wallpaper
    Blizzard released a nice patch 4.2 themed wallpaper

    • The talent Killing Machine can now properly be triggered from off-hand attacks as well as main-hand attacks.

    • Unleash Wind now deals 175% weapon damage, up from 125%.

    Enhancement
    • Stormstrike now deals 225% weapon damage, up from 125%.

    Conquest & Honor Points
    • The minimum cap on Conquest Points earned per week from Arenas is now 1500 1350 at 1500 or less Battleground Arena rating. The maximum cap remains 2700 is now 3000 at 3000 or more Battleground Arena rating. The cap continues to scale non-linearly between those two points. For comparison, during season 9 the cap ranged between 1343 and 3000.

    • The game now separately tracks different Conquest Point caps for Battlegrounds and Arenas. The cap for Arena rating will always be 2/3 of the cap for Rated Battleground rating at any given Arena rating. Battleground ratings receive a bonus of 22.2% to the cap they generate, meaning the cap from Battleground rating now ranges between 1650 and 3300. Players may earn a total number of Conquest Points per week equal to the higher of these two caps, but once players have reached the cap for either Arenas or Battlegrounds, they can no longer earn Conquest Points from that source. Conquest Points from Battleground holidays only count toward the total Conquest Point cap.


      • Example: During the first week of Season 10 everyone starts with a rating below 1500. Therefore, the cap from Rated Battlegrounds will be 1500 1650 and the cap from Arena rating will be 1000 1350. In the first week, the character wins enough Arena matches to reach the 1000 1350 point cap. After that point, Arena wins will no longer grant Conquest points for the week. However, the character can still earn up to 500 300 additional points, but can only earn those points from either Rated Battlegrounds, or from the Conquest Point bonus for holiday and/or daily random Battlegrounds. The following week the cap will be recalculated based on the character's ratings, and it is possible Arena rating could now generate the higher cap. The second week, the character's cap from Arena rating is 1600 1800, and the cap from Rated Battlegrounds is 1500 1650. The character has a total cap of 1600 1800 Conquest points for the week. Up to 1500 1650 points can be earned from Rated Battlegrounds, but the last 100 150 must come from a different source.

    • The individual Matchmaking Rating column has been removed from the Arena scoreboard.

    Lets see if it remains..

    *Remains quietly hopeful*

    Remember this won't be given a lot of time for testing on the ptr. It can very well be that once it goes live, they nerf it back down again. Seems to be a movement to appease the masses at the moment..

    So now you cannot see who is cheating by exploiting the MMR system. So instead of fixing the broken system Blizzard will make it harder to find those who are exploiting it. Such F%^&ing bull$(%%

    They should just make so that the farther your ratings are apart, the less the lower player's rating is taken into account.

    E.g. if the highest player and lowest player are less than 150 apart, they use the average MMR of the two players.
    If the highest player and the lowest player are between 150 and 300 apart, they use 60% of the higher player's MMR and 40% of the lower player's MMR.
    If the highest player and the lowest player are between 300 and 450 apart, they use 70% of the higher player's MMR and 30% of the lower player's MMR.
    If the highest player and the lowest player are between 450 and 600 apart, they use 80% of the higher player's MMR and 20% of the lower player's MMR.
    If the highest player and the lowest player are between 600 and 750 apart, they use 60% of the higher player's MMR and 10% of the lower player's MMR.
    If the highest player and the lowest player are over 750 apart, they use the higher player's MMR.

    Problem Solved?
