    "Free" Arena Ticket

    Players who have an active Arena run when expansion launches will have their current run retired and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation (plus any reward for current number of wins for that run).

    • Play out your run to x-2 (x wins and max. 2 losses) if you want more rewards from your run, or just leave it at 0-0 if you dont want to bother playing.

    Friendly Neighborhood Gladiator: if you do plan on leaving your run at 0-0, you might as well start two games and concede to two players, getting some positive karma :) You will get the identical rewards for 0-0 and 0-2 score.


    FAQ

    Q: When should I start my run to receive a free Arena Ticket for a retired run?

    A: Ideally several hours before the expansion launch, arena entries are generally closed few hours prior.

    Q: Do Arena Tickets stack?

    A: Yes. (proof)

    Q: Do Arena Tickets expire?

    A: No.

    Q: Where are my rewards for the retired run? I opened my arena rewards but didn't get any pack or gold/dust.

    A: This is a known bug, arena rewards are actually awarded to you once you finish your last arena game, before you open up the reward boxes. When an arena reset happens, it gets even more confusing because this happens on log in; sometimes you have to restart the game.

    People often see (1) pack in their inventory, don't think much about it, open it and then go collect arena rewards only to find out they didn't get anything. But the fact is, that (1) pack on log in was actually the one from the retired arena run. Same with gold/dust, it was already added to your account even before you opened the arena rewards. You didn't lose anything.

    Only few hours left before the launch! Final reminder is here. Also, clear your quest log for Legendary quest.

    Sorry to hear that :( On which server do you play? Im trying to figure out how long before the launch they disable entries for a few expansions now, but it is not an easy way to do :D It used to be about 6-8 hours, but last time someone reported that they got in like 1 hour before, so i have no idea if they changed it again or not.

    That would be in line with my assumption of 6 hours prior, but it is hard to pinpoint it exactly.
