Zach, you missed the point completely ...1.) I do compete above the 1500 level, but my post was regarding teams near the 1500 level. Contrary to your elitist attitude, all teams - reagradless of level - are entitled to a fair match. Being 1500 isn't their "problem" its a valid (and average) bracket of competetion. 2.) For those players who don't have all day to play, it can be difficult to arrange 5 people to play 10 games a week. So when they go to lenghts to ensure everyone is online for an hour or so at the same time, it is VERY frustrating to get stuck in any match where you clearly don't have a prayer. This is what point selling does near the 1500 bracket ... it creates frustrating losses for honest teams. Nobody said it's holding teams in the 1500 bracket ... the teams own skill level is holding them there. That doesn't mean they aren't entitled to fair matches.3.) Nobody said anything about gear either ... its not just a gear issue. Arena ratings are an indication of ability (part skill, part gear). I don't play chess against an opponent with an ELO of 2000 because that wouldn't be fun for me. In the exact same way, arena players expect to be matched against someone of similar ability, so that both teams have a fighting chance, and both teams have fun. Believe it or not, some of us are actually in this game purely to HAVE FUN. Arena is not just another gear grind.
