1. started playing arena in wrath and best hunter on my bg was Spanglez (nagrand, vindication at the time). He was an absolute beast. He would completely outplay me in every possible way. Finally managed to beat him which gave me such a confidence booster and kinda set off my motivation for gladiator.
2. I will always have a level of respect for all legit gladiators. I do think however majority of gladiator's are perceived in a negative way. They can be extremely harsh to ''lesser'' skilled players and just dicks. Ofcourse not all are like that, but atleast in my experience majority where unfortunately elitist. In the games current form, I generally don't pay attention to who has gladiator, I feel the title has lost meaning.
