Greetings PvPers!

The culmination of Season 3 is fast approaching and many furious rumbles have yet to be waged. The end of Season 3 will come with Game Update 3.0 and your rating, when the servers come down for the update, will determine which tier you are in and what rewards you receive. The higher your tier the more glorious your rewards!

Just like in previous seasons, the Highest Earned rating that determines the tier you are in – not Current – so no need to feel like you are risking Rating by going after the next tier up! To see your Highest Earned Rating, check the Warzone Rating and Stats page in the Warzone Queue GUI. Please note that the Rating displayed on the Leaderboards are the Current Ratings, not Highest Earned. Once Season 3 has come to an end and all Ratings have been reset, the Season 3 Leaderboards will be archived off so you can always reference who was tops in previous seasons.

Tier Rewards
(Based on your tier at the end of Season 3)

Tier 3 - Rating < 1300

• Unique Season 3 Tier 3 Title
• Unique Season 3 Bronze Trophy Decoration
• Unique Color Crystal Lockbox containing a new, unique color crystal in every stat currently available (Crit, Endurance, Expertise & Power)

Tier 2 - Rating 1300-1649

• Color Crystal Lockbox from Tier 3
• Unique Season 3 Tier 2 Title
• Unique Season 3 Silver Trophy Decoration
• Furious Weapon Set based off Top Tier PvE and PvP gear (Revanite)

Tier 1 - Rating 1650+

• Color Crystal Lockbox from Tier 3
• Weapon Set from Tier 2
• Unique Season 3 Tier 1 Title
• Unique Season 3 Gold Trophy Decoration
• Furious Armor Set based off Top Tier PvE and PvP gear (Revanite)
• Baron Deathmark’s Furious Walker (as seen in the teaser blog)

In addition to these tiered rewards the top performers are getting something special! The three highest rated characters of each Advanced Class are getting a unique Season 3 title. Only 96 characters will receive this reward. A prestigious honor indeed!

We are still locking down the specifics of exact titles, art and animations but once everything is finalized we will update this thread post haste!

Are you good enough to sport Deathmark’s furious walker? Get the group back together for one last hurrah or brave the solo queue and show them all!

Happy Hunting!

One hundred million times better than the Season Two rewards (or should I say reward). Thank you, Alex.

Participation rewards might get you guys some Qs to pop. You may not like who you're teamed with, but there it is.

At least on the level of Season 1.. More or less. Not like Season 2. I like the direction you are going. And also I'm honestly surprised that tier 1 is going to be 1650 this time. Not surprised in a bad way, just surprised. I expected the tier 1 to go down, considering how little people play. But that's good, not catering to 100% casuals. Not that 1650 is very high, of course, but it requires a good 30-40 games at least, if lucky and skilled enough.

Its more like season 1 so thats better.

The mount is cool, 1650 rating is quite high but I guess it just makes it all the more valuable and challenging to get.
So good thing that top tier mount is returning.

While armor, weapons, and color crystals are nice, they really aren't a big deal to me and most players Im sure just because we'll wear what looks good on our characters, and the gear may or may not look well with what look we want for our character.

Crystal is nice, but since its only tier 1 anyone can get it so its kind of "whatever." So it becomes more of a "timed-exclusive" type thing, but I guess thats ok, one of those things were a year down the road people ask where you can get that crystal and you say it's not available anymore.

Overall: better than s2.
But the gap between 1300 and 1650 is kind of big between those reward tiers. Im not complaining that its too hard to get to top tier (fairly close to 1650 on my s3 main), its a matter of what you want the tiers to represent.
With these, its "everyone", "everyone who doesn't suck", "really top tier players".

Just to make sure that I understand the Tier 3 rewards correctly, when it says <1300 does that mean anyone who's played at least one ranked match gets the tier 3 rewards?

Im guessing its at least 10 games? Since only after playing 10 it shows a highest rating on your character's interface, even though you still have a rating before completing 10 games.

You need to play 10 games to get a rating in Ranked gameplay and qualify for rewards.

In my opinion the Tier 1 rating is quite high looking at how there are clearly not enough people queuing for SRWZ, it's basically dead on some servers.
As well to many under geared people queuing, as well some trolls and there are nearly not enough safe-checks against that.
Also looking at how you can end up in RWZ with only 3 people or less on your team, if other quits then it's instant loss and you still lose rating for that.
There are not enough safe-check for SRWZ Tier 1 rating to be at such high point.
