I agree that the ability to use a 4 man roster to play a wider selection of comps (similar to my fav game LoL) is unhealthy for the game.

I also agree that it is a good thing when blizzard enables the player to have an easier time rolling more characters and gearing them up.

I agree.  If people want wow to be an esport then they have to keep heading in the direction of easier gearing.  I don't believe wow will be an esport but I don't like entering arenas on my new paladin and getting 2 shot by a guy who doesn't even cast mind freeze

Something you could try doing is instead of getting howl you could get deathcoil.  And then for your setup you could get your stacks of embers off the pally or whoever is in Los.  And when you are ready for your burst fear the hunter out away from his pillar and then right when you are ready to burst, fear the pally, have the Mage root the hunter for his FoF and also to keep him in line and after your first Chaos bolt deathcoil the hunter or have the pally stun him.  Getting a hunter in line should honestly be fairly easy.  If not just Los the hunter and by attacking Ret and pulling him behind an adjacent pillar.

I'd say Arena is way more simple than CSGO or League.

@ OP - stop having any hopes for this game, and stop proposing what needs to happen. It's been said and repeated a thousand of times already, they don't listen and they don't care. Besides, even if they listened, I think this game is beyond the point where it can be saved, at this point of time anyway. Maybe if Legion was amazing, then they release ANOTHER amazing expansion, THEN you'd be in a position to make a huge thing out of this game.

wow is literally the shittest esport game to watch ever, and thats its biggest issue + the fact that game is unbalanced as fuck.

edit : maybe watching first person? with some kind of generic ui would be fun/easier to watch but i doubt blizzard gives enough of a fuck ti build one anyway so rip

If you'd hire someone competent and told them to make a UI that's complex enough for people who do understand what's happening, and simple enough for people who have no fucking clue, I'd say you could make a decent eSport out of it. I could create such a UI within a week, let alone someone who has any experience in design/GUI development. Take people who designed Dead Space 2 HUD and you'd certainly end up with an amazing UI, both for players themselves and for spectators.

As for WoW being a shit game :

This was amazing to watch, even for my friends who don't play WoW and who aren't interested in eSports.

There's some seriously irrelevant shit in here.  Your opinion of WoW as a game or a spectator sport doesn't matter.  It's simply a fact that arena can and should be treated as an esport.  The WoW tournaments for MLG and ESL drew massive viewership (maybe even the highest) back in WotLK, which was the last time Blizzard gave even an ounce of a damn about the competitive scene, and it was competing with shit like SC2 and various fighting games, all of which remain mid to low-level esports today, and all of which are in roughly the same state today that they were then (including arena - spectator-wise, very little has changed).  Yeah, there's not a chance in hell arena could ever even come close to matching viewership for league, hearthstone, dota, or CSGO.  But those are the far-and-away most successful esports of our time.  Arena could EASILY hold its own or even crush most of the lower level esports of today, even in the awful state the game is currently in.  What's wrong with being the 6th or 7th or 8th biggest esport?  Fucking nothing, especially when considered in the light of how little it would actually take to get it there.  Hilariously enough, Hearthstone is yet another Blizzard game where early on they actively worked against the competitive scene, deliberately resisting its rise to an esport because it wasn't what they intended.  Maybe it's time for them to realize that they should let games be competitive if people want them to be, because it leads to a lot more success for not a lot more effort.

There is absolutely no sensible argument that arena should be ignored and marginalized to the degree it is today.  It's been limping along for fucking years now and people still refuse to let go because the game is just foundationally good, still better than most other stuff out there today even with all of these cancerous tumors from the better part of a decade worth of garbage design and general neglect.  If they put ANY fucking effort into it at all, the decline could be reversed and the game would experience at least some moderate level of success again.  Literally ANY effort.

FWIW, I don't give a shit if arena is ever an esport or what size it reaches or any of that bs.  I just wish it was taken seriously so that the game was in a playable state more than once every 2-4 years, and the easiest way to achieve that would be for it to be an esport.

When you have a sad life that makes you angry all the time you have to take it out on something.  So attacking the game is a good place for them to start.  Just hope that their lives get better so they can stop being so angry all the time.
After being treated like a 2nd grade customer for 9 years you have to have a sad life to still hang onto this old game so hard. We don't need to take it out on anyone, we can give you facts why pvpers = worthless shit in blizzards eye and all they EVER did was only hot air so you wait and stay subscribed for the next patch/expansion.

Why do so many people find ways to hate on everything; sure it's not the greatest idea at the best possible time but I don't see how you can say they don't care when they're at least making an effort.
Uh? I did say it is a good publicity stunt, that takes effort.
