This is just unfair, you can't measure skill my arena.i.e. you can be low 'cause of a bad partner, a sucky set-up or just bad luck in opponents, that can't be reversed except by finding a good partner, so you're stuck in low rating which isn't very attractive for that new good partner.Great going Blizzard

HaHa. I love the fact that Blizzard has target'd the loosers who blame everyone else for their fail. Its about time. Get better play harder look in the mirror for you faults.

I played a 2s team just for fun with a friend, hovered around the 1500s, and then decided to get serious and switched to a different team. At the time I switched, my personal/team rating for 2s was 1422.Now we're in the 1800s, and every time we lose a game we lose upwards of 25 points. Progress is incredibly difficult.Stupid system, punishes everyone, solves no real problems.
No I think you missed the point here. You will not be in a lower rating, you will just not earn as many points. This is glorious for the many people who have abused the arenas for the last 4 seasons.Might even be enough to make me go back.

If you're playing arenas for fun, then the change is that you will actually win more with the new system. If you're playing for gear, it means you have to be competitive to get it. This syetm makes it so that the people playing for gear and the people playing for fun don't have to waste their time matching up against each other. Its not perfect, but aside from the ego hit of having a low rating, where are you really being hurt?

@ Nick S - The system doesn't punish everyone. It just stops rewarding people unless they earn the rewards competitively. Its not like its some deep dark mystery. Arenas are designed for the most competetive PvP players. There are 7 other avenues of PvP that are not designed for the most competitive PvP players. Would you design the game so that people running heroic Nexus could get the same rewards as people running OS3D?
