I think TBC arena PvP took more skill as the strategy (to me) felt more in depth in terms of rotating CC because the damage output wasn't high enough (usually) to drop someone from 100% to 0% in a blanket silence or something. The biggest thing to me was the amount of coordination/communication to set up a chain of movies in order to secure a win.
I felt like you didn't have to string along as much CC, set up as much, etc. past TBC in order to net a win. I don't think this necessarily lends TBC to be more forgiving than post-TBC PvP, thinking of it this way. I think if you messed up your CC (and maybe this is what Kelustu is getting at) or if you messed up one of your steps in a long series of steps, it set you back quite a bit.
So, it's a comparison to me of a marathon vs. a sprint, sort of. TBC was more planning, more thought, more endurance (more similar to a RTS). Post TBC was more twitch reflex (more similar to a FPS).
I don't know if that makes either one more skillful, just perhaps different skill sets. I do think TBC required more skill but then again others don't (and I don't really give that much of a shit). I just felt like sharing something off the top of my head which hopefully makes some sense because I don't feel 100% atm and I'm just rambling.
I used to beat off alot, and fail all my classes
I figured he's a phony but I was secretly hoping to get pounded by someone famous.
