Season 1 gear for honor is being replaced by Season 2 gear, but at the same time, Eyonix has posted to say that they don't...

The arenas have been a nearly constant source of conflict for many players. It seems that many creative schemes have been used to inflate ratings in the pursuit of gear and glory.
