How do you stay calm?

Focuses are also your friends. (Focus cs or Focus poly) <--- This should be on the class macros section
Focuses and mods make arena a lot less hectic =)

simply the best thing u can do to stay calm. do a lot of duell agains each class, try to learn every skill of them by heart. when u start acting automaticly to specific situation, u have more time to think an overwatch the whole fight!

unfortunately you're a mage, the most adrenaline rushing pumping class in the game, especially in arena when you are 75% of the team.
accomplishments (on this or another priest):
2400 2v2 dpriest rogue s3
2200 3v3 pmr s3

. Right now, the druid on my team has yet to get a working mic so it's just me talking to myself on vent and hoping he understands what I'm trying to say. We get around that by making him raid leader and he makes some Raid warning macros when he catches a bad CC or something of that nature. .
heh, i got to 1900 before i xfered playing like this
i told him to make one macro
/rw CC'D SHIELD UP
to the op:
i used to rage, but you just have to learn to cope with it. when you have a lot to do in a small time frame, it's easy to get frustrated. just keep focused and don't sweat anything. mistakes happen, resists happen, mace stuns happen, you just gotta keep working your game plan. in time, it gets easier as certain things become instinct.
your teammates play a large roll in this too because you start to know what to expect from them. you will all become more confident in your abilities and in turn your communication will get sharper too.
tl:dr: practise practise practise

They were kinda amazed at how bad our games went back then, and usually asked me why weren't I doing anything. My answer usually was something like "I don't want to CC them because I'm afraid of getting counterspelled/silenced". I was afraid of losing.
At some point however you will have to start trying.
Due to training all this has calmed, actually in 2v2 later than in 3v3 (we spent 10 hours one weekend to get up from 1800 to 2k in 2v2, 160 matches) and every night when we finished playing I went to sleep with the thought in mind "I'll never log on WoW again."
Well as you can guess, I still wanted to try and next evening we started to do a bit better, and finally reached the 2k, and you can easily guess how happy I was.
So, it gets better with training, when you start to do all things by routine/instinct, you can focus more on the points that you need to.

except in cs 1vX is not impossible with skill. try 1vXing in arena when they have a healer still alive:(
play CS for a couple of years...I used to get all freaked out in those 1vX situations. now im calm and quick no matter what.

i play chilled all the time, unless it was something for money, i wouldn't get excited etc. the only time my adrenaline does get pumped from playing games is when i play dota for money

The more arena you play, the less nervous you will get.
I get this anxious feeling when I switch characters after pvp'ing for a long time on a different character. I never get this feeling on my druid anymore though.

Well, for one, it's a fucking game.

Arenas trigger a lot of the same instincts that combat exercises used to ignite. I feel the same way when my blood is up even if I'm just playing basketball or something. I like it sometimes, but it is not healthy in every case. I have to be very careful to keep it in check so the people with whom I play don't get chewed up by it.
