WoW Classic: PvP Ranking System Overhaul

Blizzard is overhauling the PvP ranking system for WoW Classic. Many adjustments are on the way. So, let’s dive in and see what’s ahead.

In a recent blue post, Blizzard announced that they are making a significant adjustment to the Player-versus-Player ranking system. They have decided to remove Rank Points, which have played a crucial role in PvP since forever. But now, the developers are introducing Contribution Points. They will soon be the primary method to determine a player’s seasonal rank. 

Every week when the game resets, the contribution points will be calculated. Thus, ensuring that a gamer’s progress is shown accurately. The points will drop, or in other words, decay, if one doesn’t stay active in PvP activities for a long time. But there’s no need to fret. After all, they won’t drop to zero immediately. They will only go back to each rank’s minimum number. 

The only instance where a PvP-er is deranked is if they commit Dishonorable Kills. If you’re wondering what that means, it’s when you attack civilian NPCs from the enemy faction. On the other hand, the new system gives a lot of importance to Honorable Kills. Gamers will need to achieve specific thresholds of Honorable Kills to ascend their Honor milestones, which is now the main focus of the PvP scene.

The precise release date for the reworked PvP ranking system in WoW Classic remains unknown. At the moment, it’s still being tested on the PTR. Once it arrives on the official servers, both new and seasoned heroes of Azeroth can look forward to a refreshing journey in this iconic MMORPG.
