I'm all for the arena rankings, but I dont like the fact that arena points are now tied to gear purchaseable with honor. What if a person dosen't like to arena? Will the current rewards stay in place so a person can still get PVP boots etc. without arena rankings? I sure hope so.

One imagines that the S3 rewards will remain in place for S4, the way S2 rewards are around in S3. This means that a "solo" PVP'er would be able to grind up full S2 gear and the S4 belt, trinkets, and neck, but will have to settle for the S3 boots/bracers/rings. This would not be a huge deal. Now, if at some point down the line the ONLY items available to players without arena teams are the gloves, belt, trinkets, and necks, that would be a huge deal. Unfortunately, we're not likely to find out before the expansion.

BG are not real PvP arena is. You get S2 gear and Vindicator gear will still be up at a reduced honor point cost and no rating. Its a generous offer to all you AFK BG farmers.

Razzy you are crazy if you think Arenas, by far the most exploited system in WoW's history, is the "real PvP".I'm sorry to inform you, but Arenas simply focus on killing an enemy by having the better gear and class combo, which has nothing to do with PvP. True PvP involves an objective outside of just killing that forces players to strategically think outside of their hard-coded skills and talents.Arenas are an e-sport, but not on a level playing field for all involved. The Tournament Realms are the only true place PvP occurs on a fair, competitive field. Some of the best arena players I know have massive losing streaks on the TR because they suddenly aren't overgearing 75% of their opponents and aren't facing the same cookie cutter team builds that are stuck in their same bracket.Arenas fail.

PvP stands for PLAYER versus PLAYER not PLAYER versus PVE objectives with other Players around. Areana is PvP, BGS are a fun PvPish distraction.Arena has had its corruption addressed or did you not RTFA. Yeah people will still try to sell points but it became harder to do... if any thing this signifies that they are aware its an issue and are working to fix it.And for people on the other pages QQing about your free ride going away and canceling... HA HA HA HA buy your S2 gear with honor its FAR more than you cry babies deserve. 2.4 GAVE you BT iLevel items for Badges of Justice then you whine you can't have S4 gear. PHULEEEEZE!!! GTFO
