As all of us I guess... Arena system is broken. Boosting still exist, I keep seeing ppl with S3 shoulders and weapons and S1 (ONE !) gear on other parts... Sad. The idea is good but the gap between cheaters / OP teams and "normal" players is just widening because of the points they get each week.And seriously, mass stun needs a nerf, same for the druids who has a sick amount of interrupts. Class balance in arena is a (bad) joke. It downplay the amount of skill it takes to win. That's sad (again) because people who think WoW is easy to play / win (yeah I look at you AoC wankers, well, the 2 of you still in game) clearly never tried arena seriously and will never do it because of the hard part to gear to actually compete. Wrath will reset that but only for a while if blizzard dont find a way to totally stop boosting.

Wow, it practically hurt me to read this poorly written dribble.Imo the arena system is not broken, it simply needs a little more tweaking. So what if you lose to a well geared team who reset once in a while? Maybe you should learn from their strats and techniques instead of QQing.Yea, so druids have CC, so does nearly every other class. In the end a druid is nothing without a good partner. i think the 13 hour match against the warlock is a clear example of this. Get your arse into a BG to get your welfares, or even just duel people until you learn to play your class. Then, once your in a team 2000+ come back and tell us that arenas are "Broken".I dont think that person in S1 with S3 shoulders is going to be OP against a full S2 character, let alone when you get some S4

"So what if you lose to a well geared team who reset once in a while? Maybe you should learn from their strats and techniques instead of QQing."What stratgey? Getting raped by 2/3/5 people that out gear you and your team? I dont thnk so."Yea, so druids have CC, so does nearly every other class. In the end a druid is nothing without a good partner."Durid cc is laughable, six seconds of immunity to damage and everything else isnt so bad, and with diminishing returns it really is sub par. Hibernate is very VERY situational and also pretty meh. The problem with druids if they have an ungodly amount of spell interupts, I'd guess my your post you plat a warrior, rogue, enahnce. shamman...or maybe a pally ot aff. loc...maybe.

Well what the hell do you expect eh? These high rating teams obviously deserved their high rating for the fact that they can compete at that level.So to combat long queue times, they just reset their team and absolutely OWN anyone in the 1500 rating area.I can't blame newer players for getting pissed off at this. I mean some high rating arena combatants are going to own them the moment they set foot in arena and send them down to most likely a 1300 - 1400 rating, which if I remember rightly wasn't many arena points.As for druids, I don't think their CC needs nerfing, sure they got Cyclone, Feral Charge, Bash and Entangling Roots but I think the powerful heals over time are their biggest advantage (I once spent 15 minutes trying to kill a druid who was casting HoTs and running in Bear Form around a pillar before)

I kinda sorta agree with your point but dude...It was hard to see through the painful grammar mistakes. Speak english much?

It's easy to have s3 shoulders/weapons and still be wearing some s1; full s1 from honor made it viable to get 2k in s3...unfortunately you won't have enough points from 2's after spending 3750 on the weapon and 1500 on the shoulders to get all of the rest of the set when you start most of the way through the season.
