Season 3 Disrupted

A bug has caused the PvP Season 3 to end prematurely. Kaivax took to the forums to assure the community that this was unintentional. Earlier today the bug was fixed along with the realm restart.

  • There will be rating changes and tier changes that were not retroactively applied to the disrupted season.
