    obviously, you have to read between the lines there. the simple expanation is, that until there have been enough hits on the chat gem, the ladder will not reset. last season there was lots of talk about the chat gem, and people constantly saying "i hit it so many times, but nothing happened".

    im sure the one person didint even knwo it, but one of the times they hit the gem, actually reset the ladder last season.

    That is one of the funniest explainations I have ever heard. But as strange and rediuclous as it sounds, that actually does make sense. I wonder, does that mean that if everyone had just sat there hitting the chat gem for weeks in the beginning of ladder, that it would actually be reset far earlier?

    Is there any way to verify the validity of this theory?

    The chat gem is the little colored button you can press in the middle and lower half of the screen. It's imbedded in the little strip that separates the chat screen from the Join/Create game screen.

    Just look for glowing things and start clicking. You'll see a bnet message when you click it.

    The chat gem does exactly what it was intended to do. Listen for a "cow moo" and you are on the right track.

    The gem is a horrible feature that Blizzard put in. Didn't they know that all that clicking will cause arthritis?

    I know what the chat gem is for.

    It's a secret banner add. When you click it, blizzard gets money, but the user doesnt know that.

    Sometimes it says "Perfect Gem Activated" and sometimes it says "Moooooo!"
    (but this is very rare)
