The Atlas team is gradually rolling out Atlas to sets of teams over the course of the next few months based on League rank, starting from the top.
To provide a little more background to this process, we’re adding segments of the player population one chunk at a time instead of automatically by team rank because of the territorial limitations of Atlas. For instance, if you were in a Diamond II team at the time when we added that division to Atlas, and for some reason dropped out of that division, we wouldn’t revoke access (because in the end, we want everyone to have Atlas). However, since there is a limited amount of space in Atlas right now, only a finite number of teams can be added at a time. If a new set of teams rose to Diamond II+ each week, over a few weeks there wouldn’t be enough room to fit everyone, which would impact performance, and make for a really bad experience for all.
As we go through this process of adding more land to Atlas, and therefore more teams, the whole process will become easier over time – and ideally quicker – so that we can cover all War Dragons players in a few months.
We've heard concerns that players won't have anywhere for their own team by the time access rolls around to them, but that's not true at all! More land is added only after new teams are granted access. We have plenty of areas to add to the map, and the teams already in Atlas will find it very, very difficult to hold too much territory.
