The entire Arena system and idea is a complete and utter failure. One that Blizzard simply can not accept and one they will stubbornly continue to support to simply justify one or two game producers silly spending on an unpopular idea.Blizzard, GIVE IT UP AND FOCUS ON WORLD PVP and LARGE BATTLEGROUNDS. PLEASE!

I'm not a PvPer, I've never done arena before, but I don't see how the concept of Arenas is that bad for the game?The only thing I know about arenas come, ironically, from the WoW comic. And it seems like a lot of fun (I might try it someday, I promise). It's like a Colosseum thing xDMy humble question is: why arena sucks?

Arena sucks because it's not fun. Wintergrasp is fun. Battlegrounds are fun. Unfortunately, your only reward from fun pvp is the fun itself. This is possibly why it remains fun- if the rewards from doing pvp that is currently fun became as good as those from arena, all the arena players would probably ruin it for the rest of us.Best solution in my opinion- make pve tokens the only currency for buying pvp gear. There's no real barrier to raiding now except being 80 and knowing what /lfg will do.

@EuripidesIt takes a lot more than being 80 and using lfg to start raiding, not even starting heroics.Back to the arena thing, "it sucks because it's not fun" is a very subjective answer; it's more an opinion than a fact.

So what you're saying is that Blizzard is wrong to include content that you don't personally like, and that you would prefer to play World of Netherscourge.While we're talking about irrelevant personal opinions, I myself would have preferred that Toby Maguire had not been cast as Spiderman.
