I’m the other way around on this – I hate the new setup because the cherished “old school” titles my toons have proudly borne for years are now meaningless. And with the new set-up, I can’t go in by myself on my schedule the way I used to. They changed it to mimic the structure and requirements of raiding. I think this change is the worst part. BG’s used to be the most exciting and spontaneous part of the game for me. You could hop in at any time and play for however long you wanted. Now, to get to the same progression requires more planning than a business meeting. I find no enthusiasm for that style of play.TL;DR – "no sir... I don’t like it"

No one cares about your long lost titles. That is an irrelevant factor in the discussion the implementation of rated BGs. You are no longer an unique special snowflake. Welcome to World of Warcraft.

I usually resist ‘feeding the trolls’, but…Firestyle, you’re clearly wrong that no one cares about titles. I would refer you to the brouhaha resulting from Blizz resetting the Exalted title. While this is not entirely the same, the fact remains that it is a change and it affects players. It may strike some as akin to the old “welfare epics” complaints, but it is still a valid objection and worth considering. There was no reason to re-use the old titles.

Chris, the old titles were not removed so old players could have something to cherish. Blizzard had every intention to keep the original PVP titles available for the entirety of WoW's life.They removed the titles, and the whole system that rewarded those titles, because the system was broken and rewarded incredibly degenerative gameplay.The titles disappeared *only* because the system was broken. Now they have a better system, so the titles are back. That's it.
