First off, let me say that jousting is the closest thing we've seen to a balanced 1v1 PvP system. And probably the closest we will ever see.I agree that I'd love more "flavor" elements tied to 3.1, but the suggestions to add anything to Dalaran are ludicrous. There's so many people who still lag out and crash just trying to navigate the floating city from graphical lag. And you think it's a good idea to add more NPCs? While I personally can run it just fine... I weep for those who can't. But as for the tournament site... its a good start, but it's incredibly lifeless. there's a whole string of booths, and no vendor chatter? SELL me on your stands! Call out "Hey warrior! Have a look at this!" Do something!I know there's more to come with the Tournament, but with clear "phases" to your progression through Aspirant, Valiant and then Champion, it would have been ripe for use of the phasing we've seen in so much of Icecrown before. I'm not proposing the stadium gets finished as you progress, but a little bit of headway wouldn't be bad. More NPCs... more... life, as the article said.

"First off, let me say that jousting is the closest thing we've seen to a balanced 1v1 PvP system."Any system in which each player as the exact same abilities is going to be balanced...

That's my point. People complain they don't like jousting, but the same people complain about 1v1 fights not being fair. So Blizzard finally put in a way to duel that's fair. (Well, mostly. Warriors can affect jousting with stance changes.)
