"I sympathized, knowing that if I personally spend any increment of time PvPing before a raid, everything in the dungeon slows down to an unbearable, crawling pace. (On that thought, it makes me a little sad that Blizzard said they want to slow down PvP.)"I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't enjoy arenas/pvp for its frenetic pacing. I liked BC a lot more than wrath and a big reason for that is that it wasn't the crazy-fast clusterfuck that it is now. The biggest reason I enjoy pvp is you're playing against other people who can actually think and react to what you're doing, instead of a static boss that's always going to do the same thing every single time. I just think it takes a lot more mental energy to pvp (unless you're a paladin) than it does to pve.

How long do you want fights to go? I have run the 45min time limit in a 2v2, the only reason I did that is because im stubborn. BTW after 45mins its a draw and both teams lose. With two good of equal or gear and skill, matches can last up to 15mins. I think this season is fine.

Yea, just because you and another caster had a 45 minute mana fight doesn't mean that the gameplay isn't frenetic. Frenetic doesn't really mean "burst", what I'm saying everything is happening so fast (compared to BC) that it's hard to really take it all in.I do feel bad for you though...if you're having 15 minute fights now I'd hate to see what kind of fights you'll be having in Cata.
