As seen here
, Cataclysm will be under-going major changes in the NEAR future. We have gathered together a group of anonymous players to assist us in finding a fun, yet relatively balanced arena setting that will be balanced around the 3’s bracket.
Although we do not have an exact date of implementation, we are willing to confirm at this time that the Cataclysm realm will not be reverting to previous gear-patches, but moving forward with S11/DS gear availability. Some of these items will not be free to non-donors, nor VIP’s. We intend on implementing a system similar to that of WotLK’s badge system, the kinks of which have yet to be worked out yet.
Cataclysm players can expect to see an increase and consistency in events held by Staff members, as well as general involvement.
Unfortunately, we will not be hosting a season-end tournament for last season, as we have done in the past. This is not a precedent for future seasons, nor is it an exception. We will play this season by ear.
We would like to warn players whom are currently pushing for high ratings that the gear changes WILL be implemented with the season in full-swing, so if you find that the new “meta” doesn’t suit your comp, or if you fear that that might be the case, it is recommended to wait until the new changes roll-out before you push for a competitive position on the charts.
