They should be roughly equal, but require the same amount of time/money investment. It is a true statement, as i've proved on my own, get a good 5 ppl team with the right classes full pve speced with decent kara gear together, run 10-15 arenas and get your rating up to 1600, 1700 on a 5v5, then just do 10 games a week and you get your arena set very quickly with a investment of about 2 or 3 hours a week and a 1 time cost to start a team split 5 ways. compare that to raiding which involves 4-5 hours a night and multiple wipes/repair bills. They should release the new arena tier, but when they reset teams they should reset them with 1000 arena points, so some level of skill is required to get a rating above 1500, add a multiplier that looks like (AP = arena points after current calculation, M=matchest), AP*(0.001*M)=AP, so if you play only 10 games and your rating would give you 500 points under current system it would be 500*(0.001*10) or 5 points, if you played 1000 games it would be 500*(0.001x1000) or 500 points, 1000 games is in close proximity to the amount of time raiding would require. Also deaths in arenas should give durability damage to offset the cost of repair bills that raiding involves.if they don't do something like that, that makes arenas require skill, time and gold then arena will continue to be free epic set (pvp version).
