Hello, you may not have read the recent news on mmo-champion. I'm not sure but I think these were the
"exciting arena changes".

PvP
  • Arena teams are now gone from the UI, allowing you to group with whoever you want, similar to the rated battleground system. This will also come with region wide matchmaking, allowing you to be matched with anyone in your region, not just your battlegroup. There will be a blog post that fully explains the changes on Monday.
Patch 5.4 - Arena Team Changes
The latest PTR build made a few changes to the PvP UI. The Arena Teams tab is now gone and when you inspect a player you will see their rating and record for each arena size, with no more teams listing.

In my own personal opinion, this was a pretty boring change :( . It removes the personalization of a team completly, being proud over fancy win-ratios, all gone...

Feel free to discuss this change.

If you don't care about win/loss on your name, sure, you can play with your friends.

I think it'll actually demotivate me from playing with some of my friends because the win/loss will stick for the entire season and show up on my character tab. On top of your rating basically staying stationary even if you don't play for half a year.

''2.4k exp DK lf 3v3'' > ''lol you're 20 - 40 at 2k liar''

If anything, they should disable win/loss showing and just make it show rating.

This is a double edged sword, it will promote even further elitism and we need answers on how will they hand out the titles.

So far, the best suggestion was to have a constant rating and gain titles via that (while you hold that rating) and maybe then conclude it with a season finale and give a season-long title. If such thing would happen, they'd need to introduce rating decay.

We'll just have to wait and see.
I'm not useless, I can be used as a bad example.

idk i don't really trust ratings and exp so much anymore, i just play games with people and see if it works well; if for w7e reason someone doesn't want to play with me, i will just find someone else

the only issue i see with the whole thing is that how easily it will be to carry people now, Reckful can virtually carry bads on his main heh
