Arenas: a fun side PvP activity? Wow, they *really* got carried away, since Arenas ended up being the end-game of PvP.As for the xpac, I rather hope they go with a new race. Classes change a lot at each expansion anyway, and introducing a new one will just give Blizz a chance to repeat the mistakes they made with Death Knights.

I was laughed when I read that too. I pray that they take a step back and fix that. Right now, BGs are the fun part of PvP and arena is where ppl go for gear and glory. It really should be the other way around. Please Blizzard fix this!! Stop offering the best gear to Arena players and offer us BG lovers the better PvP gear. With AV being 40 ally to 23 Horde everytime I play, I need the gear more;) lol

I think rated BGs could be really fun, but it'd probably have to be a guild thing to work. Imagine guild WSGs against other guilds - wouldn't that be amazing? And more fun than praying you get matched against the right comp so you can win your Arena match?It'll happen when BGs give top-end gear, I suppose.

Yeah that would be awesome and probably really add a much need catalyst to get players into PvP again. I would be fine with the old BG system.. 10 AB marks, 30WSG marks.. whatever.. for gear. Sure some will argue that they hate doing certain bgs, but you could alliviate that by maybe giving a standard BG mark instead.. make all gear purchasable with honor and marks.. 70marks for chest, 30marks for hands.. something like that. THis way if you want to run nothing by AV all the time, you can. YOu can enjoy the game, play the type of PvP you want and get good rewards. Make Arena points tradable for marks as well, so this way BGs and Arena are on the same level. As for end of season rewards.. well Im fine with that staying, since a sport does tend to have reward. I don't care about that. But they need to show us BGers some love. This new BG they are making is all fine and dandy, but if they don't give us some incentive it will die down real fast. To the point were is like AV.. horribly outnumbered and dead sometimes.

I think that bit is little more than PR bullshit.They've been shoving arena down our throats since BC, and they're only now listening to the playerbase. I do wonder why they chose to back-peddle now. Maybe Activision told them to stop pouring so many resources into a pet project that only a minority of players enjoyed? That would be *so* ironic.Whatever prompted them to refocus on BGs, I'm thankful for it. But I don't believe for a second that the developers accidentally let arena grow into the monster that it is now.*still bitter about frostwyrms*
