PvP Season 3 Arrives Along with Latest Game Update

PvP Season 3 Arrives Along with Latest Game Update - MMORPG.com

ArenaNet has posted the official patch notes for the latest Guild Wars 2 update that includes the commencement of PvP Season 3. In addition to the normal bug-fixes, balance and polish issues are also addressed and the 64-bit client has come out of beta testing. On starting the launcher, the 32-bit client will switch over "if conditions appear favorable".

League Matchmaking
Season 2 matchmaking was changed from Season 1 Ranked and Unranked matchmaking to help ensure league positions correlated more with skill instead of simply being based on the hours played. These changes saw a multitude of improvements for Season 2, but unfortunately they also spread out win rates further than we would have liked, as matches became a bit too uneven. We’ve created a new matchmaker for Season 3 that will strike a balance between the two previous seasons, accomplishing the same goals of accuracy from Season 2 but doing so with the evenness of matches that players experienced in Season 1.

Read the full update notes on the Guild Wars 2 site.
