I enjoyed seeing this as most have commented here, however I'm a little confused by all the comments about how Venwe is doing something different and outside the intent of the game for his own enjoyment. It's great that he does enjoy it, but it's not doing something in a "new and different way" or going somewhere "off limits" or "unknown by many". He is not thinking "outside the box" by playing in Gurabashi.What he is doing is using the Gurabashi Arena exactly as Blizzard intended it to BE used. I'm not taking anything away from him by pointing this out, his win totals there are amazing but that is what the arena is there for! To use, not to ignore like most players.And anyone saying they didn't know it was there must not pay much attention...I mean it's a zone-wide yell every 3 hours and also lies below the flightpath of both Horde and Alliance. It is a 'named' area whose title appears onscreen as it is flown past. It's hard to miss from ground also as you have to veer away from it while taking the north-south road in STV.I can see where possibly on PVP servers there might be some who avoid STV as much as possible, but those of us on PVE servers have no excuse for not being well aquainted with the original REAL arena in the game: Gurabashi! the new boring 1-minute long organised snore-fests of the current arenas may hold better loot rewards than the original, but they are in no way superior to it. And apparently many agree because GA is almost never empty on my realm, and has been the site of many epic battles even to this day.And that is exactly what the developers intended it be for!
