OMFG! I'm Really getting tired of this *****crap for realz yo! Retired wow/pvp player here. I like to keep up to date with wow pvp as much as i can. All i want is to read wow insider's insight on pvp and such. Not this frigging constant whining bout " wtf! I hate arena. F U! Blizz for ruining PVP shit". Ok one, two three times complaining is ok.I get it! You don't like Arena/rating system/BGS etc etc. Why are you even commenting on this blog if you hate it so much? If you want to rant to your liking plz get out of this blog go read some of Mat Rossi's blogs. Geez! I'm guessing that be more to your liking.I'll give some insight to my exp with wow pvp. Cuz really i was a true pvper if i say so myself. My first duel ever was when i just dinged 30. Scared for shitz to even try out bgs. But that duel changed my my whole perspective on wow. Needless to say i got beaten real bad. I looked at my self hard as to what i did wrong and what i could do to make it better. that's when i knew i'd be a pvper for life. Not that i thought pve content was lacking or anything. I just thought i liked pvp a lot better. Coming from playing Unreal before WoW it wasn't such a big leap of faith at all. The point of what I'm trying to make is not all people r cut out for pve content. WE i.e: me and others like me live and die for pvp. I never cared for gear as much i cared for the competitiveness of the game to me gear was alwayz second to that and having fun of course. I remember doing av at 60 for months didn't want to ding60+ lvl to go to outland, also being in greens for crap sake in 70's bgs when season 2 arena was still going on. I didn't care how OP/Geared ppl were in bgs i'd still fight you. No matter how many times i died or got pwned cuz i knew i'd be on equal lvl one day. Be it skill, gear, addons or whatever. And i bet most pvpers had exp something like that when they first started out.And now all i hear is ZOMG !!! Gear Gear Gear... What's the point of pvp if that's all you care about. And from reading all the complaints, whining,criticism some of you aren't pvpers at all. Or don't care. That much is obvious. If you want the best gear your gonna to have to work for it. Nothings free. Not IRL not in Wow. I don't expect to be decked out in T7.xxx or better when not pveing why not use the same measurement for pvp? And don't tell me you can't get gear. Cuz Blizz went out of it's way to make good gear for everyone not just people that just pvp all day or raid all day. But of course if you want to have the best gear your goin to have to be the best. There's nothing wrong with that. Nobody is forcing you to do nething, you don't like it don't do it. Plain and simple. All this hate is really frustrating to see. Why should i leave for WAR or whatever just to pvp ? I have friends in wow, i loved playing Wow even with all it's problems. Am i less entitled to play Wow becuz i pvp/arena? No, but sadly that seems to be the overall sentiment around here.Ok that's all for now on this topic not just this blog Zach ;). Just got tired of seeing all the hate. Had to give my 2 cents.Forgive my English/typing. Not my first language after all.Neph US Velen or used to be ='(

I belive you are seeing a lot of negativity to these posts because people are feeling left our of an aspect of the game they enjoy.Most players play WoW for progression=fun. Gear is the route to progessing in the PvE and PvP game.The flaw with arena is that the matches are not skill based. With gear/class/spec disparity other, more skilled players, may find themselves unable to obtain high ranks due to them even entering the system at a later time than other PvPers and they will have to face better geared opponents.As an arena player I hate the system since it excuses my losses against higher geared players and it cheapens my wins against lesser geared teams. I probably will switch to playing more PvE in Wrath primarily because of this.I would applaud Blizz if they simply sold PvP gear purely from honor/marks and let all players compete in Arena matches with equal pre-made gear sets. At least this change alone would solve the largest issue with the Arena. Most of all I would know that my team actually earned a 2k rank instead of rolling over lesser teams.
