Wayyy before Arenas were even an idea, before silithus and EPL pvp objectives and even before BGs, Hillsbrad foothills was a warzone every night. It was fun. Arenas? No, thats not fun...Arenas have turned friends into bitter enemies, and literally have us at each other's throats sniffing for blood. We used to be able to focus are hatreds on the other faction, and it was justified because there were identifiable differences between our enemies. Now?? Now, you can actually run into an exact carbon copy of yourself in an arena. You can, you will, and you most likely already have. So now we have nothing to focus are hatreds on. So we hate on other classes and hate on our friends! Arenas=Player Hater's BallThis is why I honestly believe Arenas and Arena Rankings are taking almost all the fun out of this game. Its turning everyone against each other! Have we really been reduced to complaining about miniscule percentage differences between class representation, and some random person's rating that youve never even met/seen? Im broken, youre broken, this whole system's broken!! Heres my equation: Arena matches + (anyplayerA - skill) x (enoughtime) = free epics where f(enoughtime)=[(anyplayerA - skill) /(other playerB skill + other playerB # of zomgepics)] - (amount of time spent QQing on forums + time spent on websites researching whos the best and what classes are overpowered and why anyplayerA needs buffs) Insert your own variables to figure out what the real problem is...my problem is that i dont do arenas, so i have a big ZERO and of course any number times zero=zero :( It just seems like everyone hates everyone else now cause were actually physically fighting and killing each other (err virtually physically, that is) instead of just fighting our opposing faction. Its turned us into monsters, and even worse green-eyed monsters! We hate anyone who has what we dont, and stands in the way of us getting it. Honestly, all these ranking systems have make WOW arenas the equivalent of a real life gossip program. Arena system= wow version of perezhilton.com Seriously people, what happened to the old days when we all just hated warlocks and laughed at huntards.
