The first poll on the official WoW forums was mentioned on WoW Insider
when it was posted a few weeks ago, but since then a few more polls have been created. While one of them
is obviously just for fun, the other two are more interesting.
When asked "What is your favorite arena?"
the Ring of Trials in Nagrand
won out as everyone's favorite with 46.3% of the votes. The Ruins of Lordaeron
received second place with a tally of 25.14% of the votes. While I didn't vote in this particular poll, my choices would have matched these results.
Admittedly, I'm pretty much a noob to the arena. Like many other players, I mostly just get my ten matches a week to scrape up enough points for some welfare epics. Probably due to this fact, I dislike the Blade's Edge arena
. The ramps, pillars, ropes and bridge create a lot of variables during an already hectic fight which can lead to panic, confusion and ultimately an inglorious defeat. Even more inglorious than normal, that is. Also, this arena in particular makes it more difficult for stealthy types (my 2v2 team is composed of a rogue and druid) to get the drop on their foes because the narrow catwalk makes a convenient place for an opposing team to make a stand with their AoE and stealth detection. What are your thoughts on the poll? Do they match the results?
