E-sports has no place in WoW, nor is the arena game remotely entertaining to watch. PvP is a tacked-on mini-game and shouldn't be interfering with PvE.

I think that sums it up right there. PvP is a distraction for me, nothing more.

I disagree; for many of us, PvP is the primary motivation, not a distraction.That said, if their intent is to make WoW a viable eSport, they're not even pointed in the right direction when it comes to arenas and BGs.

For once, Biscuit, you say something that I can 100% wholeheartedly agree with.Even setting the Tournament/Arena detailings aside, PVP has caused more entirely unneccesary nerfs to the PVE game than vice-versa - after all, how much has PVE nerfing caused problems with PVP? ...None, I believe.Personally, I say that arenas be mercilessly excised from the normal realms and leave PVP on the non-Tournament realms to BGs and the occasional random world encounter and/or lowbie-ganking. But that's just me.Good to see one of the bigger names in the WoW media circus agrees with me about the pointlessness of specialized PVP in a PVE-centralized game.

Agreed. Without the PvE game, PvP cannot happen. The reverse cannot be said. PvP should not drive PvE nerfs. I can (and do) play the game without ever setting foot in an Arena or a Battleground. Largely thanks to level 19 rogues with 2000+ HP any PvP before 70 for a character you plan to level is pointless anyway.

Its my main game, but PvP and PvE should be, in no way, interacting with each other on a gear or skills based level.

Whenever you've said this i can't help but agree.I like the idea of giving decent items to the casuals (arguable) however when they are on-par and in alot of cases of S3 items better then their PvE "Counterparts" is when Blizzard is going wrong. when you can use PvP weapons in a PvE environment and hold your own against PvE-geared classes, thats where the line needs (should of) been drawnAlso i'm pretty much against any change made to change the PvP side of the game and majorly nerfs the PvE side. Any changes to a class in an originally PvE orientated game need to be made with PvE in mind FIRST.If you want an mmo with pure PvP go pick up an Age of conan or warhammer CD when they get released. We won't miss you.

To summarize "People who enjoy all aspect of this game are hurting the enjoyment of people who only enjoy grinding/raiding"
