Rating decay won't fix much, people just won't queue at all till last 1/2/3 weeks of season and just gear via 2's then spam queue and sit rating.
That would most likely occur anyway, one can always hope something could go well for arena this expansion.
Why would people spam 2s? if rating decay gets implemented or something familiar w/e GC is working on, its a better motivation for most people doing arena to keep playing knowing that getting r1 is not impossible. Take last season for example Hydras RMP sit on R1 for 9 months everyone know its impossible to reach that rank or reach gladiator even because everyone is camping it. I dont think arena will "explode" but it will for sure make it more fun to play.
One of the biggest problems now is that every patch there will be OP comps or classes if some KFC got 2.9k now and camped that until season end just because they had a OP moment but got nerfed a week later after they got that rating they would never play again until next season.
