Arena Popularity

Holinka tweeted on some information about arena popularity.

Official Blizzard Quote:

How are queues 3 times as long now that there's 10 times as many people with 1 big pool?
To be quite honest, the bottleneck is spinning up games fast enough. A lot of people are queuing. We're working on a fix right now.
This is utter music to my ears. Thank you so much! I was starting to worry WoW PvP was dying, but far from it!
Just to bang the "people love rewards" drum a bit more, 3v3 has seen a big jump (probably do to the mount achievement).
It's mainly due to the 2s experience being so bad, imo- people cap in 3s instead.
2s is doing better than usual as well

You're a RBG hero, you have no say in Arenas. You only say this because you can kill some one with one button in RBG's and not be killed, sorry buddy, but RBGS =/= Arenas.

As a side note:  The twink brackets remain completely dead.
Anywhere from 50mins to 2 hours to get into a lvl80-84noxp WSG (and its only ever WSG).
Also, the arena queues are still broken for twink brackets (80,85): you click queue and it goes nowhere.
People who have paid money with the intent on playing a faster paced game (e.g. 80 twink bracket)
are basically SOL.  Several tickets and no GM has the answer--- want money back pls~

Hopefully it stays that way too. Twink pvp is cancer.

I really have trouble believing that more people are actively arenaing. I'm sure quite a few new people did at the start of the season to get the mount/achievement, maybe even on a few characters, but then stopped as soon as they got them. Prime time in the us you literally only see 2-3 other teams queuing within 100 mmr

Some friends and I had 10 day trial time for our lvl 80s.
Plus some people dont want to grind gear every season.
Also, lvl 80 arenas are faster and good training for 90 live.
If you pay for a service, it should be granted.  
Blizz never warned anyone that 80 was just finished.
Its not like there is even a queue time...you just aren't able to queue.

Twink brackets are halfway to being what every single PvPer on here wants, yet they all make fun of it.

No gear grind every season.
Faster games.
Less ability bloat.
Less interference.
Less cheating.

Getting a viable character to play with can be done in a few weeks instead of many months.

If the PvP community wasn't retarded, we would all be playing Twinks and then forcing Blizzard to balance certain brackets (70/80/w/e). Max level PvErs are good with it since it doesn't affect them at all, PvPers finally get grindless meaningful PvP that can balanced without worrying about PvE.

Someone who understands.  Twink brackets are also a partial boycott for people who refuse to buy shitty xpacks or lag too much on AT.
