Only problem that I can see atm is if you wanna mess around with friends w/o screwing ratio/ratings up.. adding an "Unranked" que option like in SC would be cool

So here is my reaction:

Positive:
-Region wide match-making (surprised only a couple people mentioned it) is going to be great.  Needed change for a long time.
-Being able to play with someone who doesn't log a lot without having to worry that they are so much lower than you on the team (my brother, for example, plays with me once a week, so he tends to fall behind in team rating or I have to team hop)

Negative:
-Can see trade chat turning into "LF 2k+ class X, min 60% w/l ratio PST"  I'm hoping that's not the case, but very well could be.
-If they don't find a GOOD way to revamp titles (since something will have to change) then it could be somewhat messed up.

Overall I think this is the right change for the way the game is moving.

This could make or break arenas depending on how it plays out.

Interesting. I do not see blizzard removing titles any time soon as it has always existed in arena. the Title's purpose is to motivate players to have something to fight for as well, and to give proof to whoever managed to get it that they are that good. Ofc cheating such as wintrade, DDOS, or even agreements between top players in some communitys have ruined half the point of having titles, than again if titles were to be removed, I think arena would be less competetive in a way. there has to be a reward of some sort for putting that much time and effort into becoming good enough to be forexample glad or r1. My personal opinion anyways.

would be nice if they split it off into how bgs / rbgs are ..

you have arenas that you can just play around in with your friends and do whatever - then you have your rated arenas, maybe give the option to turn it off like 5man - 25man instances and such?

Why would games for gold go away?  If you still only get conquest for wins, I'd think people that just want to cap them fast each week would still pay.  Or are you saying the supply of carriers would dry up?
