    It was announced earlier. It was done to bring back duo queue. Take your pick!

    You can like or dislike the titles all you want, but your individual perspective doesn't change the fact that this change caught everyone by surprise, pissed a lot of players off, and now season 13 has no competitive prize pool.

    The correct way to deploy this change would have been to let the community know at the beginning of season 12 that this would be the last season to get a title, and then have the replacement prize for titles ready at the time of removal.

    Also, regardless of your taste for titles, the fact that Anet is choosing to remove titles instead of punishing the wintraders really points to their commitment & investment to this game mode (or lack there of). It's a lazy and cheap attempt to fix a problem, n that's just a nondebatable fact.

  • I am against this decision.

    It's a fun little goal which does have an effect of playing more pvp but I guess people can get too obsessive about it which brings in heavy verbal toxicity

  • I am for this decision.

    it was a fun little addition but if it's encouraging people to win trade to get a few words under their name... get rid.

    I'm more for removing reward pips for a loss. Although gain +1 pip if it's a close defeat (within 50 pts).

    I was hoping they were removing titles to add something better, but if it's just a lazy way to prevent wintrading then that kinda stinks. :/

    yeah im not too keen either way.

    you don't know till you know, ya know.

  • I am against this decision.

    It's a good addition but only if they can reasonably bust up win trading. Removal of it feels like they've admitted they can't consistently catch them, and now the people that exploited the system have some of the rarest titles in the game.

    Thread already exists in a lot of different forms. Look before ya post.

  • I don't care.

    Rytlock Brimstone: So we find the archon, take him out, then use Kas's "imposter" trick to take his place, right?
    Lady Kasmeer Meade: It's not a trick. Mesmers don't do "tricks"—we utilize illusion.
    Rytlock Brimstone: Yeah, yeah. You guys are worse than elementalists.

    The truly fact is.
    If you don't care about titles, thats because you arent good enough to care about em.
    Noobs don't earn season titles anyway.

    OBS: Feel free to change my mind.

    I never went past gold in any season so I don't care if they remove titles for top ranks.

    I am against this decision.

    Personally, I have little hope of ever gaining a leaderboards title. Still, this decision eliminates a major motivation to play.

    The better plan would have been to eliminate win trading by: not permitting free accounts in PvP, strongly policing win trading, policing queue sync'ing and finally by requiring solo queue at all levels ( with the possible exception of ATs );

    What I'm finding sad is it took removing the titles to light a fire underneath everyone's rears about getting rid of obvious repeat exploit offenders since the early seasons. Before no one cared garbo like this was happening, and some even went to defend exploiters. Now everyone is trying to get offending players banned when it's way too late for that, and the decision was made affecting future goals. You're all paying the price for what the top end has done, best thank them for it.

    I don't get why we have to resort to extremes here by having one or the other... never understood this logic even when it was used to replace team queue with solo queue.... like, why not both?

    as for OP.... I would prefer if they keep incentives for players to play in the top tiers, I dont want to be matched with the top 20 players nor do I want silvers in my games just because people dont want to actively play.

    Im sure anet will introduce something, they stated in another thread that theyre thinking of having rewards based on tiers you reach and the current system encourages players to play the bare minimum games to keep thier achievements which has been an unhealthy set up for everyone, so dont give up hope yet.
