    Think we're ok. Still a little higher than we wanted, but acceptable, and people honestly worked for it.

        I admit, that the rewards after 6k banners are not much, but changing scaling? What good would it do? I see no difference, except additional work and waste of time, if I should receive 25 banners all the time and ladder would lead to 25-30k banners, or how is it set right now.
        Would you add more check points to the ladder? Had better drops? or quantity?

          i think it more benefit new and lower player if you want go for 11k banners you dont need to spend 500 gems least to get that reward and if whale still want to try top 1 pvp reward they still can go for 20-30k banners ( same amount of gems anw )

          most of time i dont care about rank reward but only want 6k banners for 1 bp but climb to 6k is really hard and tidious when you only get about 8-9 banners per battle

            If you're only getting 8-9 banners per battle before getting to 6k, then you're not maximizing finding the max banner fights for yourself. Be sure you're looking for battles where the gold reward is 270, as this will indicate the maximum number of banners you can obtain for your current ranking. Up to 6k, you should still be able to find fights for 12 banners each.

            The rewards on the ladder are set based on the current banner curve. If we were to adjust the curve, we would also adjust where on the ladder each reward is placed. For example, under a scenario where every fight is worth 25 banners flat, then the current 6k prize would be pushed out to about 7500 banners instead. An 11,500 stretch goal ladder would correspondingly then be pushed out to about 23,500 banners instead.

            Under the current banner curve, it costs about 150 gems in pure gem output if you are constantly refilling and not using any natural stamina refills. Getting to 6k also will rank you generally in the 200-500 rank bracket. This means that completing a 6k ladder for 150 gems out will get you 3 legendaries, 1 epic, 28k gold, and 50 gems for the final rank, plus all of the things on the ladder, including 60 gems. So you'll earn back 110 gems total, for a net output of 40 gems to finish the ladder - again, assuming you aren't using any natural stamina refills.

            From personal experience along with that of many players, hitting 6k takes about 6 hours of solid grinding. Over the course of an event, that's really not that much time.

            The banner stretch goal isn't meant to be easy, and it's not intended for new and lower players. Guild Wars used to just go to the standard 6k and that was it (ending at the Bloodstone Pack or Tome of Ascension), while our top players were still pushing to 14k, 15k banners and getting absolutely nothing extra for it. We implemented the banner stretch for guild wars to reward these, our best players, with something a little extra for their effort.

            The banner curve is set up in such a way as to provide something of an upper boundary for the banners to be earned. This is one way in which we can help to mitigate the time zone differential, so that players reach a point where they have to be very choosy about who they are fighting, as a loss can cost them 2 fights' worth of banners. This prevents a player from starting out right at pvp start and just running away, unbounded, forever, with no chance of anyone else catching up.

                We are actually making a change to always have it be a Mythic Wisp in the ladder. You should start seeing that come into play with the next round of content release (in approximately 2 weeks). We're also extending the legendaries to be earned down into the 1001-2500 range, as you can see from this event having had GCA there. We've also already been granting newer heroes as the top 50 rewards, going so far as to include heroes from the Premium Catalog, as well as including the new release heroes in their week of release - not sure where else we could go on that to give "better" heroes at this point.

                  I cannot belive this, after four years of play, I did not know this little information. I never connected the the gold to the banners. Thanks, this helps a lot, specifically when the banners are decreasing.

                      Sometimes, you'll also get full banners on a gold amount of 261, but not sure how that works.

                        Yes, true... when you're at the banner cap area around the 2000 banner mark (when you get a max of 30 banners) there's a brief period where the curve allows for both 261 and 270 to grant 30 banners. It also happens later on when the curve swings down far enough (I think around the 12k banner mark) when you're earning about 8 banners max, you can see that for 252, 261, and 270 gold.

                        Basically, keep an eye out for the 270 to see what your max is, so you know if you can take a fight that's one or two notches down on gold if the curve point is allowing for that max for a couple of gold values.

                          I don't know if it is possible, or is considered as too much, but I think upper banner reward (above 6k) could reward advanced mythic runes(2h, 4h, 8h) and one would get two hour rune for the lower parts and 8 hours as last. The reward itself could be considered as double.

                            It's something I've thought about, actually. Definitely a possibility.

                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
