Has anyone noticed this?  Pet battles get tons of small incremental changes, hotfixing abilities, bugs, and adding more content and functionality.  PvP would be pretty amazing right now if it received anywhere near the same level of attention.

If something is too overpowered in pvp, they should just put in a small hotfix with a small change to adjust it, rather than these massive sweeping nerfs and buffs that almost always go too far and take far too long to implement.

Because Pet Battles does not affect PvE in any way.

Because the pet battle community is probably bigger than the PvP community.

Because you don't have to balance pet battles around pve and pvp..

How can you be stupid enough to even ask something like this..

Appreciate the ad hominem, thanks for keeping it real.  Is it easier to balance a minigame that doesn't affect PvE?  Absolutely.  It doesn't mean it should get far more changes though, and far more balance updates and hotfixes.

Frost orb doing too much damage in both PvE and PvP?  Nerf its scaling and base damage slightly right away, and see how it continues to perform after a week and make additional adjustments as necessary.  If something is right where it needs to be in PvE but is too good in PvP, it needs the colossus smash treatment with either less duration or a reduced effect in PvP - doesn't change PvE at all and it's really the only way the game will ever get truly balanced.

The one time where they need to wait for an actual patch for balance changes is with adding or taking away abilities, and changing mechanics rather than just coefficients and base values.

First line very useful, a honest reply that might have answered his question. Second line, you go scumbag mode and ask if he is stupid? Does his question annoy you or somthing? or do you just have some weird habit that makes you flame people for no apparant reason?

Q up?  Don't think I've ever played against you, I may have forgotten though.  I've barely played at all for several seasons now.

Ooooh I get it.  Didn't think people got all serious about challenging others to pet battles like that, so totally thought you meant Q for arena.

I did pet battles for about a week shortly after mop came out, haven't done em since though.
