Road to ascension

The third Guild Wars 2 pvp season kicked off yesterday and with it a very nice change to matchmaking. If you had previously made it to Saphire or Ruby rank, you will now start dircetly in Emerald – awarding you the “missed” rank up rewards after a single win. Same goes for those that made it to Diamond or Legendary rank only that they will start in Saphire right away. I hope this will lead to more balanced matchups right away. Most of my matches yesterday where simply put faceroll again but the last one of the evening turned out really nice. We failed hard at the beginning and managed a comeback to end the match with 500-390 in our favour. Matches like this I usually started to experience towards the end of Saphire and upwards so having a round like this in early Emerald does make me enthusiastic about this new season and the changes ANet made.
Wish you all the best of luck on your own path towards The Ascension
