I can relate to thisAs a 2 week old level 70, I started out in Arena's only just 2 days ago getting my 10 games worth in.Blizzard in their infinite wisdom paired us against people in full S3 gearUs in reputation blues got one-hit most times.Managed to win 2 games out of 8 though which wasnt bad.The point I am trying ot make is that Blizzard need a system where they pair us n00bs against other n00bs. A minor league may be the answer, I think a better way would be to have people change into their arena gear when they queue for a match. The game then assigns a point value to the gear based on stats. This point value then becomes a marker for a seeding system where low points play low points and high points play high points.The arena team is no indicator since they can be disbanded and started up again easily.I am sick of being "farmed" for points. With the gear reset forthcoming in the expansion........are n00bs like me really going to be that motivated to take up Arena now when we are one hit by teams in full epics?

The problem is that their rating system is broken. There's no minor league necessary-- they just need a working rating system. Chess noobs don't get paired up against Gary Kasparov and Bobby Fisher, yet Blizzard's "same as chess!" system does just that all the time.
