Arena is slowly becoming less popular and season after season we see people transfer off to smaller battlegroups to achieve an easier Gladiator or R1 title. Should Blizzard take all the battlegroups and make them into 1 or 2 bigger ones. Perhaps 1 West BG and 1 East BG, or just 1 giant BG. This change would virtually eliminate any wintrading to rank 1 and it would give a better perspective on who are the best players. Sure there would be less rank 1 titles to go around but that only makes them more unique. The east and west bgs que into eachother already so it's definitly possible for blizzard to make this happen

They would probably create USeast and USwest at the same time as implementing xRealm arena teams. It's probably in the works already.

Or, give "rank 1 titles" to the top 10 teams (or however many battle groups merged into each other) then some other formula for gladiator ranks, that way they eliminate win trading, decrease queue times dramatically and roughly the same amount of people will still get "rank 1 titles"

I think that if they unite for example five bg's in to a big bg, the first five teams get r1 title, and gladiator title to 0,5% of the active teams, easy :D.

Shouldn't rank 1 titles be really rare?  I don't see the point in giving anyone but the actual rank 1 team the title.

why would you change the font size?

why?

edit: I can't tell if the font changes from "unite" and on or not.  This is making me angry.

Sup Synkz, how you doing?

If there was 1 giant BG and only the actual rank 1 team got the title, wintraders would go crazy to obtain it.

Yeah, but wouldn't it be insanely hard to actually wintrade when every single team is on your bg and would be able to queue into them?

It would be harder to wintrade, not impossible. Also there would probably be alot more ddosing and new cheats like that real id wow error thing and the script last year that gave everyone in the arena wow error.

top 10 teams or something get r1 title would still make the title rare, just imagine is like 15 people on the entire continent of America had the title... It would be so rare that the ones who really wanted it would jizz everytime they ran past someone with it.
