I said the exact same thing about the level 70 arenas a couple of months ago. My wife and I both got our rogues to 70 and figured the Arenas would be a nice diversion from BGs or heroics. I changed my mind quite quickly. Getting absolutely annihilated by vastly better geared teams make the evening pretty much suck. We were a 2-rogue team, I didn't have any heightened expectations--we were going to lose early and often. I was in no way prepared for just how ridiculous the system is. And yeah, Blizzard has instituted changes to fix these geared players from blowing out less-geared players. Whatever. You wait til a week or so into season 5, and the flaws will pop out again. They will not go away until Blizzard gives everyone the same gear when they walk into the Arena. At that point skill is all that matters. Until then, enjoy reading Zach and his efforts to put silver linings on the whole thing. Nice try, but arena is still gimped and it is still incorrectly implemented.
