Why/why not?

It would promote more active playing on the ladder, less alts, and wouldn't be much different from the current camping system.

So based on highest obtained rating you mean?

S8 ele LSD glad S9 resto shamn glad Thunka

Druid utility is superior to shamans utility already

all the other healers should be buffed up to the point of having a way of not having to outplay 2 dps to survive

Thunka 2.0

disc is way way better than druid.

yes

Sounds like something that could work. It would definitely end the notion of just sitting on rating. Cutoffs would probably rise, a lot, so thats something to take into account also you'd need the armory to keep a ranking based on highest obtained rating.

Always though this would be great idea but highly doubt this will ever be implemented. PVP scene is too little and this feature will involve quite a lot of work and support at the end.

ya i agree with this. teams aren't a thing anymore, and it can't possibly be that hard to implement.

2009 is gone, rating decay needs to be a thing so you dont have people grind rating first 3 weeks then never play again.

Something I brought up back in 2013 even before this WOD bs... WOW pvp/arena is so dead.

http://www.arenajunk...me#entry4014118

I agree with the idea but I doubt it will be implemented knowing Blizz gives jack shit about WOW pvp. Look at all these hackers/kick-botters that Blizz fails to keep in check. Blizz needs to start caring more for this game to even have a chance of getting back alive.

Legion maybe too late for lot of old school users like me that already crossed the point of no return...

rating decay is really bad because it leaks mmr from the overall pool. eventually you end up in a situation where the ladders become so volatile that they are meaningless. it happened in every game i've seen rating decay introduced, most recent one being sc2 (basically everyone is diamond now, it's got to the point where diamond is the largest tier in # of active players)

the idea in the original post is really good though. they should make titles dynamic (i.e. being within the cutoff right now allows you to wear the title), and end of season reward being just the mount (so purely cosmetic - the main 'prestige' of being high rated will still be attached to the title) and rewarded for MAX rating achieved this season so there's less incentive to camp

Sounds fun to me, but wouldn't actually happen. Then the ones playing ladder comps would just farm free points and the others would have to farm a new seasonal high to secure their title after they dropped playing random comps.

Shit like tripple dps might become a thing again and you cant tell for for sure that they will be put on farm mode, also wintrading will go thru the roof.. not sure the concept is all that good
