someones in a bad mood today ;(
No I just don't see the point of flaming somebody after posting a 1,000 word essay about quitting the game, just to come back and play three weeks later.
I'm not trying to devalue your title btw, if you personally are proud of it then grats bud, nobody can take that from you
I will probably get murdered but they were right when they said they regretted implementing arenas. Im a dogshit ret with 2k rbg exp but pvp should be all about bgs. Remove crossrealm queing while at it, server communities are what made this game good. Knowing the people you are facing is a great thing. I played vanilla on elysium for a few months and i can still type the names of people i was facing in wsg off my memory even right now.
What i would like to see is rating based random battlegrounds, something you can que as solo or as 5. Remove rbgs remove arenas implement rating bgs.
It's an accurate statement. Best chance pvp would have at even getting close to the participation it had in WotLK is to make rbgs the primary focus. Maybe reduce it to a 6v6 if possible, and make the maps a lot smaller. Coming from somebody who absolutely hates rbgs due to the community slaughtering them back when I last played in mop, it's the only chance.
But you'll never be able to convince the community that is true. Most people (like myself) are biased af because we've been ddos'd one too many times by some dumbass who paid $5 to use a shell booter. Solo q 6v6 prolly the only hope, but I doubt they'll do it.
Arena historically was at least fun to play. Now its X > Y = Z ... and its not fun to play. You just have to hope that after Celestalon, Lore and Holinka are done getting hammered on Monday night that the RNG dice roll in your favor. If not welp that sucks try again next Hotfix fiesta night.
edit: Even Runescape, a game which is older than WoW gets 60k~ viewers on their deadman mode pvp tournaments. gcd is pullin in like what, 5k? (thats for NA viewership last i looked @start of expac). Game just isn't fun to watch nor is it fun to play so all it becomes is a big pile of shit that people only play because it serves as a 3d facebook
