I enjoy PvP every now and again, my guild does not. I saw rated BGs as my way to get a leg-up the PvP ladder without actively having to join a PvP guild. As it turns out, I'm just in exactly the same position as I was before Cata. Those who PvP on a "serious" level now have one more thing they can do. Everyone else does not because, unless your guild can field 10 PvPers, you can forget it basically.

One more thing for serious PVPers to do? Anybody that wanted large-scale combat, or anything more complicated than your typical console fighting game, were stuck with exactly what was available to every other player. Those that went the extra mile to put together BG premaids were not rewarded for it much more than the guy that spends 30 minutes running in circles.

I meant one more thing other than Arena. Rated BGs are the sole preserve of the (at least semi-) serious PvP player like Arena.I was disappointed with this because it initially seemed that they were going to be a bridge between regular BGs and Arena; something like the normal > heroic > raid flow you have in PvE. As it turns out, it feels more cut off to 'casual' PvPers than at first sight.

Able, I understood what you meant, I just don't understand why you feel serious PVPers should be pigeon-holed into playing a glorified version of Street Fighter.
