Lead Producer Holly Longdale had already announced it in an interview with Venruki over the weekend: In the near future, there will be more arena points for the respective ratings than before. Thanks to the already published patch notes for the upcoming WoW hotfixes we now know: It's already in the next WoW ID so far! There it says:
Burning Crusade Classic
- Player versus Player
- [With weekly maintenance in each region] The formula for Arena Points has been adjusted to increase Arena Points awarded each week. This will equate to approximately 100 additional points per week for most 5v5 teams, about 88 additional points for most 3v3 teams, and about 76 more points for 2v2 teams. Teams near 1500 rating will get more, and the curve still tapers to the same maximum as before.
- Developers' notes: In original Burning Crusade in 2007, players could expect to receive 450-500 Arena Points per week by playing at least 10 matches and winning more than 50% of the time. At that time, a team who lost most of their games could expect to get about 300 points per week. Starting from a team rating of 0 has created a points-per-win curve that has been significantly below that, so we're raising the point floor to compensate for the additional time needed to raise your rating. With this change, all 5v5 teams over 100 rating should get at least 300 points per week.
Starting Wednesday, the formula used to calculate the arena points for the respective scores in the 2vs2, 3vs3, and 5vs5 brackets will change. As a result of the changes, most 5-player teams should receive an average of 100 more Arena Points than before, while 3-player teams will see an increase of about 88 points and 2-player teams will see an increase of about 76 points (with no change in scoring). Teams around the 1,500 rating range will see the biggest increase, while teams at the top of the rankings are unlikely to see much of an increase in points. 5-player teams that have a rating of at least 100 should earn at least 300 points a week.
