@ ManaThe fault in your logic is that eventhough you need an Arena Rating of 2000+ to 'buy' the S3 Shoulders, you do not need an Arena Rating of 2000+ to 'wear' the S3 Shoulders.It kind of makes the requirement pointless, no? Especially when you can form a new team (ie. pay people) and get a 2000+ rating in one night, buy your gear with banked points, and go back to sucking at Arena.I think everyone would agree that forcing someone to maintain a 2000+ rating for shoulders is unfair, since we can all have a bad week. But then what does the rating indicate? What does it mean? All it means is that you were able to hit a 2000+ rating, one time, and then went immediately to the vendor. It doesn't say anything about your skills as an Arena player. (cant tell you how many 1500 ranked players I've seen running around in 5/5 Vengeful)If the system is that flawed, it shouldn't be there in the first place. Be honest: epeen aside, why should it matter if some scrub loses his way to 5/5 Vengeful? Based on Blizzards logic of 'earning the right' to your gear, ALL current Arena gear should have a Ratings Requirement on it.But then they know the vast majority of players wouldn't bother with Arena, as they are unequal to the task of getting above 1500-1600, and then they wouldnt play / pay their $15 a month.I repeat, Arena is a joke.
