I hope that somehow someone from Blizzard takes a look at the comment threads like this one, and realize that the the Arena system is broken as they have conceived it. It seems like no matter what the changes in the past, or the future changes, that their will be multiple people that feel they are getting the shaft. Like maybe 12% of players are actually satisfied and content with the Arena and the changes that are sometimes foisted upon the PVE content. 12% is just a random number based on what I have seen personally and in comment threads here and elsewhere, but it seems about right.Not very many of the actual non-cheating players - the ones who actually play Arena in the manner in which it is intended - seem too pleased about the ratings system. I propose that it needs an entire overhaul. Start from scratch and invent an entirely new system that bears absolutely no resemblance to the Arena as it exists today. I wish I had a concrete idea of exactly what would be the right way to make it, but I simply don't. Thats why I'm not a game developer. There MUST be a way though.Maybe just a more straightforward ranking system instead of having one calculated for the team and another calculated for the invdividual. That could have problems though, but the current system's problems are nearly insurmountable right now anyway. I don't know exactly how it should be fixed, just that it needs to be done when it comes to several factors such as the rankings and how they tie into gear purchased with points.
