Thank you to players on servers 1 and 2 for giving us your feedback on Challenger Seasons. We are ready to release it globally! The first step in this process is to increase the limit on the number of people who can be in the Challenger tier of Arena and Coliseum. We are doing this in anticipation of the next season starting on Monday.
Please note: The minimum number of players to start Challenger Seasons is 200. If the server reaches that number before Monday, the season will start on Monday at 9PM CT. If the server doesn’t hit that number before Monday, they will need to wait until the next season to start.
- We’ll be doing a server restart at 11:30 AM CT today, March 20. This will increase the cap for the challenger size.
- On Monday, March 23, we will be turning on Challenger Seasons for Arena and/or Coliseum on those servers that meet the 200 minimum. This will happen just prior to 9PM for those servers only. Those servers only will get the persistent timers.
