A PERFECT example of team, mindset and class in action:
Reckful's fresh Druid that's under a week old is already 2400 in arena and it's no debate that he gets carried by his teammates. I don't meant this in a bad way; he's super undergeared (or at least was). Sometimes he forgets to throw out CC, heal, or purge Hex. But it's not because of his lack of skill, it's because of his lack of experience in handling the class. His damage is certainly low at times and he relies mainly on the class' burst and survivability. If Reckful didn't have strong connections he wouldn't be at that rating, and instead he'd have to start from the bottom like most people. Some people try super hard just to get 2400, but Reckful doesn't. He doesn't really care if he wins or loses (indicated by his 115-100 ratio) which is really cool.
tl;dr: You need to be chill about arenas, get lucky that season if it's your class' time, and know some super awesome people to play some games with you.

If I had reckful's teammates and a legion of fanboys giving me enough money to live a good life, I wouldn't care if I win or lose as well. But I don't - and almost no one does apart from him and a select few cases. So this is not a really good example. Knowing some "super awesome people" is also something that is getting increasingly hard - I have problems finding such people myself and I have been around for a while, let alone a player that just started.
It is very, very hard for a new player or even a duelist level player to break into the glad clique. There are two ways:
1) The easy way - you know someone from some other source outside wow that hooks you up with people in his clique. This is how many rival level players are promoted to gladiators over season - countless example
2) The hard way - play, play, play, play. Try new things, different tactics every game against the same team even if you win them. Experiment with bindings. Figure out dps rotations. Build up synergy with your partner eg I will fear that you sheep that etc. Be a better listener than a speaker. Ask people questions - out of the 100 cunts that will ignore your wispers, one (me) will reply and help. Watch videos (old videos from wotlk mostly - videos that defined how each class is played today). Communicate concisely and ahead of time eg I have no defensive cds BEFORE you need them. Let your partners know what you have available and when eg I got PoM sheep in 10. Be persistent and not a faggot; with only a handful of exceptions, most r1 players now used to be bad/mediocre like you - it was their determination to prove that they are not worthless nerds that pushed them to such greatness. Now they are simply nerds.
1) Suck some cock and make friends at high places (faggot)
2) Be a man and spam games. Find people to bond with (hard). Don't just play; play & think, analyze and plan. Don't be intimidated by players with more rating than you.
