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.
