Dear Blizzard Entertainment,

My rating started from the bottom now, now I'm here. Unless, I'm losing rating over there, then I'm going nowhere. Let those Drake lyrics serve as a hip way to memorialize the RBG rating recession for the past few seasons, and, the recent "hot fix" which further exacerbated the issue. When we were new to WoW PvP, we all admired the Blizzcon champion Twitch streamer, Swifty's biggest crit, the top ranked arena players, or the greatest RBG leaders. We love high rating, and, will not tolerate losing rating. PvPers play to gain rating all the time. I wouldn't give a damn in hell about a player that lost rating and laughed about it.

And yet, in the status quo the top 0.5%, our Hero of the Alliance, our Hero of the Horde, does not gain one. single. point. of. rating. I've tweeted lead PvP Designer, and, living proof that Blizzard does care about PvP, Holinka, on the matter. His reply admits an error in the inflation coding for RBG, unintentionally differentiating its rating gains from Arena:

https://twitter.com/...775375803453440

Earlier last week, Holinka tweeted that the problem had been resolved:

https://twitter.com/...558061790875648

Well, it hasn't. There was no bug in RBGs that ever allowed current rating to greatly exceed MMR. Rather, the bug is that our MMR does not provide us for higher current ratings. It was the exceptional skill, hard work, time, and energy of players like Buleh, who sits on the ladder as I type this with an astronomical record of 199 wins and 3 losses, and yet, he's only 2413 rated. I'm proud to say two of the losses are from my group. Not that it matters. Anyways, in the current bugged system he's not even good enough for the Prideful Gladiator's Tabard, which requires 2500 rating in Arena or RBG. If this player does not deserve to beam a wonderful shade of green on his chest after vanquishing that many opponents, in that humiliating a fashion, I do not know who does.

The top Arena players may reach a CR and MMR ~2700-2800.

And yet, the top RBG players may only reach a CR of ~2300-2400 because we hit a glass ceiling of ~2100 MMR and now we can't even gain one point a game.

http://i.imgur.com/M3Pbbte.png

I understand that we, the RBG community, are the minority of a minority faction. And yet, whether we amount to a majority or a minority of the whole on World of Warcraft, we are all united by a common impulse of passion, an interest in progression, and the permanent and aggregate interests of furthering the community of our beloved game. We do not deserve to have our major symbol of competition and skill (rating gains) meaningless. Since win-trading hit us season 10, and, now the Rating Recession as of season 12, we've been treated as third-world citizens on a first-class game. I understand that the majority prefer pet battling, dragon slaying, or even arena, and, that makes the ground I stand on insecure, to say the least. I've been harassed, heckled, and cursed from sites like ArenaJunkies, with members exclaiming: "this is ArenaJunkies, not RBG Junkies! Your kind isn't welcome here." Thus, it is of great importance that within the Blizzard PvP community, as our administrators, you not only balance the Arena community against bugs, but also guard the RBG community against the injustice of changes in Arena that negatively impact RBGs.

I love RBGs, God help me, I do love them. I love them more than my life.

Yours Very Truly,

World's Rank 1 RBG Leader, Bailamos

Please support both of my posts on the WoW forums on this issue with thoughtful comments that contribute to fixing this, screenshots of evidence, and, a sticky request.

You can't read the English in the gif? I'm sorry I thought you were the intellectual savior of the unwashed masses?

ArenaJunkies: where someone will spend time constructing a positive post seeking to better the community, and, be greeted by an array of pithy one liners from witless, socially marginalized nerds with the mental age of twelve.

Shouldn't you kiddos be watching Sodapoppin dye his hair pink or something?

Well I'm glad you gave a shit enough to type my name out thank you. Though I don't remember the last time anyone gave a fuck about someone posting RBG stuff on ARENAJUNKIES. Do we not have a rbg area on this site for bailamos to live in?

Most responses here seem to be naive, immature and self-centered.

Bailamos is trying to promote a serious issue in the RBG ladder and it needs to be fixed.

Totally supporting everything you've said Bailamos.

bailamos

while i respect ur passion as an rbg leader and your prose as a writer, you always find a way to undermine any rational argument u present. if you would just write well thought out posts without the arrogance and fluff, you wouldnt have a more respected image. i know you are an attention speaker, but there comes a time where your professionalism is seriously in question.
