Skirmishes have been added back

Has already been confirmed it's coming back.


.@BWalterWhiteB We acknowledge many people want skirmish back. It was more forgotten than removed. It will come back, but not in 5.3

Bring back 2s Gladitor without rank 1 maybe?

*please dont kill me*

I think when they fixed issues in 2v2 balance was better...

It's not really that much more imbalanced than 3s really. And maybe give different titles in 2s. It would increase arena participation definitely.

Bringing back titles in 2s would definitely bring more arena activity, but they have to balance 2s...

(atm as warrior i dont get any pleasure from facing any comp with a healer...)

I don't understand why people are so against 2s being something worth doing. It can be it's own separate thing with different titles or whatever and have no impact on 3s.

2s is probably the best place to get your feet wet and learn arena. 3s is very punishing for new players, especially healers, which are already in short supply.

Everyone who likes arena and pvp in WoW should keep their attitudes focused on how to attract more people to arena instead of bashing what's not cool to do right now.

Also back in my day 3s was the garbage bracket for bads. Yup. /oldhasbeen

you are either oblivious to how things were in bc or you are seeing the old game through rose colored glasses, which is easy if you're a warrior, or a druid, or most things other than mage

as good as mages are now in 2v2, they were every bit as bad in bc, and then some worse

And then some worse. I think people forget what mages were like before they had deep freeze and went oom really easy ;p Add to that mages were basically countered by the two most prominent healers.

Yeah about 2s. Was capping a friend the other day.

MM/MW Monk vs BM/Disc.

Procede to kill the BM Hunter, disc pillars for 10 minutes, we get bored, let him rez and reset, procede to kill the BM again cause they're terrible, Disc pillars until draw.

I'll pass.

Fuck 2s with giant dildo up the ass. Worst fucking bracket ever devised for the Hunter class.
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

I remember Hunters being awesome im 2s in WOTLK...

As i said - when issues - like mentioned above - in 2v2 were adressed balance felt way better than this shit right now.

There was almost no insane comps that we might have called "Godcomp" n shit

Every 2s comp had its counters and freewins but i think that was okay... (same way for 3s - WLD - RLS lose WLD - LSD win)

And how in hell is 3s more balanced? And also 5s? wtf?!

I think 2s should not be worthless - thats bullshit! Gladiator title reward but no Rank 1 plz :-)

I swear i am kinda happy but this is also so sad to see, all those changes are needed and told to them since many years, says alot about how brainless and/or deaf were the devs working at blizzard wow before this guy came in

WoW could have been big in esport if this got handled 4 years ago, its hilarous to see that such a big company had such bad devs for so long

You're cute, here's a pat on the back. The only reason why WoW even had an appearance on MLG a few years back was because of Blizzard's influence in the gaming world., and Blizzcon arena tourney existed because, well, it'd be stupid for a company not to make a tournament out of its own game. I actually didn't understand few years back when first WoW MLG was happening ( was new into whole online gaming thing, I was a casual gamer who didn't even bother checking all the multiplayer games until I was introduced to WoW ) - how come WoW booth had so little crowd while others had more than plenty, how come it had so little online viewers while other games were rocking viewers, and why did I have to hear screams of CS/SC booths all the time while WoW commentators were acting like bullied children and telling us "Heh, hear that SC crowd ? It's okay they'll settle down now so we can continue with commentating without interruptions" ?

Reason was that games like CS, SC, League are infinitely easier to get in to while having higher skill cap than WoW does, and are way more forgiving on new viewers than WoW is. Also, players of those games play for the PvP component alone, while 95% of WoWs players are in it for dragonslaying, flower picking, selling shit on AH, etc etc.

Apparently this new guy got hired. Apparently he's doing great changes ( I can agree, f.ex. I've been wanting to see BEM accessible from all sides since druids were abusing the hell out of it and so on ), and even if he did them 4 years ago, the same problems would plague WoW.

So little of its playerbase even cares about PvP, how could it possibly attract new players and viewers when even its own players don't want to watch PvP ?

No MMO will ever make it into esports properly, I hear even GW2 has failed.

Has anyone actually played 3s lately? It's either 1 minute games against rogue/hunter with the only possibility of winning is with some counter mongo strat while the other teams are just resto shamans rotating through endless cooldowns while hoping to get an instant cc on the well thought mechanic of unleash elements and mastery leading to 20 minute games. I think dks are in a top tier position but arena's current state doesnt make it enjoyable
