    Yo,
    Back in the day there was this addon called Epeen. It allowed you to simulate endgame arena teams and rating on your twinks, by keeping track of win/loss counts and giving you a score based on that. I don't remember excactly how it worked, but was wondering if anyone has heard about a similar project being made for TBC Classic?

    I would assume that because classic and tbc classic are built on the current game, that the current arena rating script works? Or maybe something very similar might with a bit of tweaking?

    /run InspectUnit("target")InspectFrameTab2:Click()C_Timer.After(1,function()local a,b,c=GetInspectArenaData(5)print(format("%s, %s %d, %s (%d%% winrate)",ARENA_BATTLES_2V2,PVP_RATING,a,PVP_RECORD_DESCRIPTION:format(c,b-c),100*c/b))end)

    basically the game currently tracks and scores rating for low level toons, it just doesnt display it. Like i said, I'd assume that the classic games being built on the current games infrastructure might mean this still works? Maybe it needs an actual arena system in place like TBC might have? I don't know.

    Just might give you an avenue to go down or someplace to start looking.

    The first Arena Addon for twink back in TBC was Skirm, then upgraded to Epeen with Woltk.

    Will be awsume if someone upgrade this and make it work, but the c'est will be making a website with scoreboard for 2v2/3v3/5v5 for all bracket.

    If the Skirmish API works for TBC classic, you could probably do something super simple, like have a small script append the rating at the end of the win/loss ratio of your pvp tab. You'd have to look at how that is structured though. If it's a table, it'd be ridiculously easy.

    The only catch is having to relog each time you want an accurate representation of your arena rating, since the Blizzard API doesn't update otherwise.

    This would just be for personal use.

    If you want a full on ladder of scanning and logging players that you have faced in arena, it'd be a bit more complex of course. You could maybe even add a functionality where you target a player and press "inspect rating" (or something like that) and it would add them to your list where you can see people's ratings, in case you were curious and had yet to face them in arena.

    There could even be an export/import functionality so you could share your list with others or import theirs to create a bigger sample pool of arena teams.

    It'd also be more accurate than Epeen ever was, because unlike Epeen, it wouldn't revolve around a 3rd party database with specific criteria. So whoever plays will automatically have a rating through the API.

    All of this of course relies on that Blizzard has a skirmish API that we can use in an expansion that is otherwise focused around arena teams, as opposed to personal MMR (which is what skirmish MMR would be).

    I can 100% guarantee I am not going to go through and move every thread from vanilla classic to tbc classic that mentions TBC or was made before we had a TBC forum.
