[quote name='Grunz']WoW has never been about being fair. Is it fair when a Sunwell guild grabs a priest from a guild that's just about to clear BT, which causes them to waste a week or two searching for a replacement? Is it fair that Prince will be the most important boss kill for most people in this game? Is it fair that some people have 8 hours a day to play this game while some only get to spend an hour or two? Is it fair that someone on a dead server had to spend forever waiting around for AQ to open up?
It's not a God-given right to participate in arenas, nor does the ToS stipulate that arenas will be a bastion of equality and balance and morality. The arena is what it is, and you're either good/lucky enough to play your way to the top, or you can pay those that are to help you get there. Just like in pve, if you want to get your hands on Sunwell gear, you do so by either being good enough to be in a Sunwell guild, or you pay a Sunwell guild to craft stuff for you or drag you through the instance.[/QUOTE]
Your missing the point. It's not about people getting the gear, I would be happy if everyone had equal gear. It's about team sellers wasting other peoples time just for personal gain. Of course you don't have the right to face 100% equal teams every time, but does that take away that you are wasting the time of a real person just so you can get gold in a video game? No.
Sure, your wasting peoples time if you leave a guild as well, but choosing to change guild isn't anything like steamrolling weaker teams to get gold.
BTW I'm not saying I'm always right my self. People have asked me to boost their rating for money and I've seriously considered doing it, as long as there is a way to get easy money while having fun doing it I perfectly understand people doing it. I don't think everyone selling points is a total dick. However if Blizzard can do anything to prevent/reduce this I''m all for it, and I think it's stupid argueing against that.
