Season 4 gear would be tiered with ratings for each piece, as we see here. And Season 3 items would have no rating. So that the teams finding a cap they cant pass for whatever reason can still gear into a full set of season armor. If they still can get into the rating areas for the Season 4 gear, then they need to find new arena partners or something.

Gloves/Helm/Shoulder 1700 - Chest/Legs 1800 - Weapons 1900 or 2000.
That way those that are just starting out in the arenas or can't pass above a certain point due to whatever reason can still get the lesser tiered season armor.
