I don't agree with adding arena points to BGs. I'm not much of an arena player either, so that's not my basis, I just feel that arenas take a different skill set that doesn't apply to BGs and just giving people the arena points for them really makes no sense to me.Personally, I think they'd be much better off adding some form of BG points with their own form of costs to purchase the gear, just as right now you can get them from badges, pure honor, or a combination of arena points and honor. It would just add an additional method of BG points and honor, probably more than arenas but less than the pure honor option. I just don't like the fact that this will let those people who show up and just stand around doing nothing for honor in places like AV to get better gear. I suppose though that since the rating requirements stand, those people will at least be limited there.Really, I'm just looking forward to rated BGs, so that the higher level rewards can be obtained meaningfully in a BG setting as opposed to arenas. They're implementing a sort of stop-gap measure that I don't really agree with, but at least I know they intend to do things right in the future.
