kind of like the whole change, it was always so hard to keep team together for longer than 2 days

i know a lot of people who like to team hop a lot, i am sure they will love this

might actually come back to wow just for that :)

I guess the record will be ur highest rating achieved ? If they removed win / lose ratio more people would play for fun and that'd be so good people are gonna be more active . If i'm not mistaken about what that " record " is then that's a great change ^^ ! Can't wait !

They haven't explained anything yet and won't till the official FAQ comes out Monday. There are a lot of unanswered questions.

Potentially the best change for arenas they could do. Although committing to one team is good, this allows people to play more freely and with anyone they want to. The only true downside to is that I see is that now boosting is easier and selling ratings is gonna be so much easier. But gonna wait for that blue post that will clarify things.

i agree, most ppl are selling 2v2 cap for example for gold, and if you dont want to have a mentaly ill person in your team at 1800+ mmr you often have to drop 30-50games or more to be able to 1v2 ( 1100-1600 ) the lower the easier money, if they then added this into win/loose it would be funny xd

remove all rank 1 titles past present future, keep this individual rating system (preferably without BGs and have the entire ladder merged), then follow a league based format akin to Starcraft 2 and the game would be infinitely more active with a lower degree of cheating.

Titles are and always will be the problem with arenas.

According to MMO-Champion:

Arena teams are now gone from the UI, allowing you to group with whoever you want, similar to the rated battleground system. This will also come with region wide matchmaking, allowing you to be matched with anyone in your region, not just your battlegroup. There will be a blog post that fully explains the changes on Monday.

You are right, but this is SO retarded.. Because nothing is gonna change.. CR is currently personal MMR.
We don't ask people for current mmr's now so we would be retarded if we start asking people's CR.

This will overhaul title system for sure. As long as it's not exploitable this is a perfect change

This is fucking awesome! I know i'm no multi-rank on like a lot of people here, and i think the last time i stayed in a team for longer than half a week was when i got the 2k achive a couple of months ago. Since then I have been playing with good people and been on higher MMR but either it's too hard to find time when everyone can play or someone rage-quits after a couple of losses and you have to start all over again. I have a lot to do in school and in the summers i like to be free from a schedule and not have to think about playing WoW three hours every evening to be able to compete at high ratings. I like progressing in skill and i like the feel of actually improving but right now i can't do that anymore, and i can't fucking wait for 5.4, almost only because of this change!
