They look amazing. The whole concept behind this is awesome.
One question though is are these going to be implemented into ranked or how will that work ?

Glad you like the artwork! We are pretty happy with them as well

As for your question, I am writing up a blog post today (it won't be posted until next or or possibly the week after because it needs to be translated and rubber stamped by my bosses and their bosses and their bosses bosses and their.... you see where this is going :P) that will explain this aspect of Warzone Arenas and more! Sorry for the tease but it's an in-depth answer and best to keep all the where, whys, and hows in one place.

Cheers!

Alex...one question, a super simple one. Will there be an effective Matchmaking System in the new Arenas? That's all I really need to know.

Alex, there MUST be solo only queue into these Arenas, cuz random teams every time will be incredible fun!

Please, make SOLO ONLY queue for that deathmatch! And group or common queue too. Hope, there will be individual solo pvp rating for Arenas too.
May the Force be with you!
