This is pretty backwards if you ask me. Wintergrasp is the actually good PvP in Wrath. They should do whatever it takes to make it work better, not discourage people from playing it.You don't see them working to discourage people from going into arena, despite the players themselves not wanting to (as seen by massive popularity drops the instant welfare epics were removed).

In my opinion, if Blizzard want to improve Arena, they have to greatly reduce or remove Rating requirements on items. It was great in Seasons 1 and 2, despite the win trading.Making 1 or 2 classes overpowered and making us need to get very high ratings with season 3 onwards sucks tbh.Ever wondered why people don't bother with Arena? Because the rewards really suck unless you're very good at it and hit very high ratings.

The problem with Wintergrasp is that it needs to be instanced.

I wonder how many people in a WG battle, turn in a daily quest at the end? I don't believe most people do, I think many join just because they hear the /yell in dalaran and they're borde, or perhaps they are gathering wg marks for a mammoth.My point is , turning daily quests to weekly won't reduce the number of players to 14%. Perhaps wg battles of half the size is what they're aiming for? 75% of the current size?Personally, playing on a low-pop server, I just wish they left things as they were over here, and only punished the lemmings who deserve it! :p

They don't care about making it better. They are doing whatever it takes to increase shareholder returns.Blizzard: "You don't want lag in wintergrasp? But that would require some upgrades, and we've already billed your credit card for the month, so GTFO"

I agree entirely with you clbull. The new rating system is utter trash aswell, for the last few weeks me and my parter win 5 games lose 2 and our rating is reduced to less than what we started. Blizz really need to sort these things out.Also as for WG lag waiting 10 sec for an instant to do something on my server does not make me want to do WG but since its about the only good way to make lots of honor beside premades on my battlegroup im forced to do it.....
