The only reason there was a title wipe is because main gave so many titles every season that the title itself "Gladiator" lost it's value.
You're saying they should give top 10 teams r1 glad title and from 11-15 normal glad? Are you serious? You can't be serious, that has to be sarcasm.
What's the purpose of the gladiator title if it isn't something earned with hard work and winning a season? If everyone can get it with just being in top 10 or top 15. After 3 seasons there would be 45 teams that received gladiator title, 45 x 2 = 90 players with gladiator title. Only 3 seasons though.
I'm sorry to say but your theory is really bad, it doesn't do anything good but make things bad or even worse. Holy hell, 15 gladiator teams per season, aka 30 players running around with gladiator per season, sounds like a server where competition doesn't exist. Sounds like a server where you can get 2k or 2.1k and afk for the rest of the season and earn gladiator.
Just report whatever you think it's bugged to the bugtracker and open a thread here providing a link to it. There's a big chance the fix is already implemented on the Nemesis realm and can be merged.
I've played Warmane every season ever since they merged old Mol10 with AT, the server was extremely alive and populated, first season there was up to 1.5k online every single day on the instant 85 realm, while the leveling realm had around 4k.
-However, it slowly died because Kaer was giving orders to the developers to fix more populated realms(their wotlk realm) Cata numbers shortly after went down as there was no update or any changelog in a very long time.
Warmane used to give top 3 teams in 2s "Gladiator" title and r1 in 3s "Named Gladiator" r2,r3 normal gladiator. Their rule stated that you needed to have 2k rating in order to receive title in 3s due to low ques.
After they removed gladiator from 2s the server population dropped drastically, it's sad truth. Majority of the cataclysm community would rather que 2s over 3s, it's proven over the years in a many different ways.
Conclusion: (I'm against it btw)
- If for some reason main decides to remove glad title from 2s and only give it from 3s, i think it would decrease the population. As much as i like to play 3s over 2s i don't think it'll ever happen. it's still not worth losing x% amount of playerbase to satisfy couple of tryhards out there left(i'm one of them).
Yes and then the new tbc realm (outland) even fked up more the stability of cataclysm and mop realms, now both frostwolf and neltharion are just lack of people, both ladders are pretty well dead, and both realms are drastically changed, and dying. Though, their rules stated (as you said) that people must have 2k cr in order to compete for glad in 3v3, but that was just to make people start queing this dead bracket, they ruled this every season, and every season ended with people getting gladiator with 1,7k cr(talking mainly about mop realm, idk on cata how did it end), but of course they don't mention this on their forums,im playing on warmane pretty long ago, and pandawow aswell and tons of people wears gladiator title now, like they queued alot in the beginning of the season, and after that they just went for a long break, and went back only in the last day of the season and they still were in top15.. only 1 team got gladiator fairly their title, with 2k.
''Majority of the cataclysm community would rather que 2s over 3s, it's proven over the years in a many different ways.''
- Sadly not only the majority of the cataclysm community would rather que 2s instead of 3s, 2s is just like a cap bracket and will be always that, people are just lack of quality and exp to que 3s, not even mentioning that the whole monster-wow is lack of that, at this current state of course, back then it was the opposite.

- If it would happen, why don't they make any tournaments then or just merge / implement cross system so it would make any sense, both realms are 4.3.4, even tho they are on different emu i guess but atleast there would be bigger population and interests for both bracket
Tournaments are always a good idea, im sure ppl would participate for it.
