      06/06/2017 – June 6th Release Notes

      World vs. World
      As part of the June 2017 Competitive Feature Pack, updates to World vs. World will include improved LFG, new rewards, skirmishing updates, and more.

      Power of the Mists has been disabled and has been replaced with the new Skirmish Reward UI.
      The Standard Enemy Models option beneath Competitive now functions in WvW.

      Skirmish Rewards

      The WvW Match Overview tab has been reworked to include the new Skirmish reward track.
      The Skirmish reward track is progressed by earning pips.

      Commanding a squad containing at least five people.
      Playing on the same world for at least three weeks.

      You must play on a world for an entire match in order to be eligible for earning pips.

      Crossing tiers and divisions gives various rewards including Skirmish Claim Tickets (which have replaced Tournament Tickets) that can be used at the Skirmish Supervisor Vendor.
      The Skirmish Supervisor Vendor has replaced the Battle Historian on all WvW maps.

      This vendor sells ascended and exotic WvW gear, including the brand-new Triumphant Hero's armor and Mistforged Triumphant Hero's armor, along with improvements, tactics, siege, siege decorations, tricks, traps, food, and more.

      Match History

      The second tab in the WvW Match Overview now displays the war score, victory points, and kill/death statistics throughout the entire match so it's easier to track how well your world is doing.
