While on the one hand, I think this is a creative addition to the game, I am dreading the ineveitable outcome from having such a system.Its bad enough these days that when posting on the forums or talking in /trade, people right away look at your gear and Arena ratings as an indication of your credibility. With Achievements in place, it will progress even further to: "You have no right to your opinion, you didnt kill Razelikh the Defiler" , or "STFU n00b. L2Hogger".Sigh..

@TcgjarheadOK, let's go with your line of thinking for a minute. Wouldn't it be more logical to assume that it's in response to their actual current largest competition (EQII & LotRO) instead of in response to their theoretically-possible-maybe-future largest competition (WAR)?In reality, this is just a bunch of WAR fanboy nonsense. Yes, this is a "Keeping up with the Joneses" maneuver. But, it's not due to fear of any single competitor. It's just Blizzard catching up with a feature that has become an industry standard.
