ghostcrawler normally responds to me on twitter and I've tweeted him many times regarding blizzard forcing people to do RBGs but he didn't respond to those topics (yes i know some people like them, but a lot of people dislike them too).

So if you have a main what's your average equipped ilvl in PvP gear and do you do RBGs (also do you like or dislike them?)

I personally hate the fact that you're forced to do RBGs and I feel this is because blizzard tests classes in in-house battlegrounds and simply wants to force everyone to detach from arenas and get more attached to RBGs so that they can balance everything around that - it's a lot easier to balance around RBGs.. even monks are good there.

Edit: to clarify being "forced" to RBG, you get 500 or so extra points from RBGs than arena of the same rating.

My main is 486 average pvp equipped ilvl - I've done 0 RBGs this expansion.

I'll tweet this thread to him if it gets enough feedback, thx

my main is 487 ilvl and i havent done enough rbgs to get a cap from them. I think they were fun at the start of cata but now theyre just sort of meh. I also think its unfair that you can get an insanely high cap from rbgs even if you have garbage rating.

Not sure what the point of comparing itemlevels is. It is pretty fucking clear that the conquest point caps from RBGs are way too high, and way too easy to achieve(mainly because of cheating, inflating ratings, etc). I don't really care about RBGs, it's not my thing. But when I have to meet people with almost full gear + t2 weapon at 1800 arena rating while I'm gearing my newly dinged alts, it's pretty fucking frustrating. Not to mention the amount of spam in trade chat about rbgs, since people have to find a new RBG "team" every week to get their hard earned conquest cap.

i488 dont mind doing them, would enjoy them a little more if it wasnt 8 min ques back to back against 1500 teams or wintraders.

also i feel like this is relevant: http://us.battle.net...g=&specType=all

$20 to anyone who finds more than 5 players on that list who didn't exploit/wintrade

edit: also to be more specific, ive spent a good 15K+ Conquest on ret gear as my OS so i guess after upgrades on my holy i would have been technically done 'gearing'.

I've been fully geared since last week because of RBGs, don't do them anymore because I don't like them at all but you gotta do what you gotta do

Did some RBGs 3-4? weeks ago and shot up to 2k rating in literally a couple of hours. (100+ rating per win up to 1.9k).

I got a higher cap from those random RBGs with friends than my gladiator range 3s. I also heard a lot of people are purposefully queueing at stupid hours to 'hope' to queue into exploiters to get a free 150+ rating off some 4k mmr team.

Dumb as fuck.

Anyway, I missed about 4-5 weeks of arena cap at the start of the season, but getting a huge cap from RBGs these last couple of weeks has helped me catch up. I'm on 485 ilvl after capping this week.

I started RBGing about the 5th week of MoP, so I've missed a few weeks of RBG cap, but had a decent arena cap regardless.

What is the point of tweeting a thread to him?  Unless he was born with a disability it is an obvious issue to arena players that developers are aware of yet do not find to be an issue to balance or design.

Especially after this redonk upgrade system, making arena points equivalent to RBG points is a simple fix.  They should increase point gain by another 10 or 15% or lower item costs to 1000 1500 and 2000.  We are how many weeks into the season and people are just now finishing their gear after doing max cap RBGs every week, ie. Phil on this thread.

482, did some rbgs but skipped a couple weeks out of lack of time or interest or proper non-retarded teams.

RBG as enhance aids.   Just as people see the word  "enhancement", "enhance" "enh" "en" or "e"  they reject my existence.

this whole "it's easier to balance around RBGs" thing is ridiculous. the game isn't any easier or harder to balance around a certain game mode. it's just far harder to see the class imbalances when its 10v10 than it is at 2v2 and 3v3

but you're right, that's exactly what they're doing

Welcome to the life of a Hunter ! Should rename RBGs, "Rated Wizard Club" or something, once i finish Warbringer (260/300 wins on the Hunter since begining of S9 :( ) i'm never even trying to touch one on my Hunter, ever.

Hunter is not wanted in rbgs? Rofl..
490 ilvl, done rbgs like 3rd or 4th week and started capping since then. And yea its funny 1900 rbg cap is pretty much equal to 2500+ arena cap.
I lag in rbgs pretty hard ( dunno why, specially vs russian teams ) and i dislike the way rbg is being run a lot, i would like if it wasn't about mashing buttons and doing pve rotation with some setup to aoe some players down. If it required less amount of players, like 7v7 or even 5v5 and slightly more clever objectives than normal bgs, it would be perfect and interesting to play.

Just personal experience, on my Warrior we virtually never run with a Hunter, and most decent teams i try to get into prefer having a second lock/mage or a boomkin instead of a Hunter, would also add that i don't have a proper team anymore and i'm stuck pugging and thats the mentality in that setting, at least in the US, i'm well aware Hunters can be very powerful in RBGs and i love playing mine in them when i can.
