Just go play Counter Strike and quit messing with my MMO.Lollerinas.

I love comments such as these. I play multiple characters; some are competitive in arenas (high 1800s/low 1900s) and others are progressing in T6 raids.Neither character effects the other. PvPers don't bother my raiders, and raiders don't bother my PvPers. I don't understand how we are "messing with your MMO".It's nonsense.

Because instead of making two different games that are good, they are making one game that sucks.Each part of the game is effected and more often than not undermined by the other. They are different game genres that don't mix, oil and water and all that.They are lollerinas, both the combat platform and those that think it is some sort of heroic combat. Go play an FPS, they do the same thing only better, and have done so for years.Put real PvP back into the game, bring it back to the world and give it meaningful goals this time.

I have to disagree. I enjoy raiding and PvPing (and I do both in an end-game fashion) in BC much more than I did in classic WoW.Blizzard is taking care of all aspects of the game quite nicely in my opinion.Competitve FPS games are super fun also, but WoW arena-PvP brings something to the table that other eSports, for lack of a better term, don't--nine classes with unique playstyles and specs, different comps, etc. It's my favorite competitive game. And, it's one of my favorite non-competitive games as well (see also: raiding).I think Blizzard plans to continue to do both, and I'm sure that I'm not the only one who is happy about it.

Forgive me for saying so but....what the hell is a lollerina?Is that like a ridiculous ballerina?Do you mean lolarenas? or maybe even lollerenas?I agree with Oblivion. I pvp far more now than i ever did during the Rank 14 days, and despite all the crying and hollering about how much pvp sucks and how much mages are worthless (i have a mage) and AoC is better, my friends and i are getting "serious" about pvp in season 4 and while we have no illusions about getting armored netherdrakes, we think we might be able to buy our shoulders.Our pvping has improved dramatically since we stopped bringing in the scrub alts "for points" since once season 4 hits, its going to be hard to buy anything for them with a crappy rating.

I have to agree in one sense. Arenas have led to nerfs that were not needed in terms of PvE. If Bliz isn't going to figure out a way to have abilities differ in PvE and PvP then they should go about balancing in a different manner.

I do agree as a general player versus player games you get an all around better sense of enjoyment out of an FPS there is far more to rely on skill as opposed to gear.
