Except that higher rated people cried about the 5-game cap because it made getting pvpgear too easy for the average joe, and the lower rated people cried that high rated people got all these gear with minimal work because of first-week rating grinding.
As with every single thing in WoW, people will complain, and Blizzard's response that the people demand just makes things even worse.
Ya'll should be fuckin ashamed. All the crying about PVE's influence on PVP is what caused the shitstorm we're in now. People started crying about Vial of Win, Legendary Daggers, Legendary Staff, Shadowmourne, Cunning of the Cruel, and Blizzard responded in kind with a solution that would seemingly fix the problem, but just made situations even worse.
Now guess what, bitch, you complained about PVE in the past, and now people can complain about PVE being the only thing that keeps you alive through their opener, and get it taken away.
I may not be the highest rated player, nor have I been for several seasons now. My only real claim to PVP accomplishment is the fact that I had Season 5 and 6 Glad on my old acount on my DK. Which isn't saying much, I know Season 5/6 Glad as DK doesn't make you good. (but is still saying more than Warriors are going to get to say about their glad titles this season.)
People bitching about how the threads of this game get crossed when it doesn't benefit them, and as a result, the bitching sets a precedent for everyone else to cry for the same reason down the road. This shit should have just been left alone. Anyone remember the Season 8 boo-hoo about Shadowmourne and DBW on STR Classes? That shit is fucking tame compared to what recent seasons are offering, and is probably only going to get worse in seasons to come.
