In Topic: rbgs have the highest skill cap

  • RBGs and Arena are different brackets
  • Both Require skill / tactics at high rating
  • Arena games can be rewarding to win at high rating to achieve milestones
I have lead RBGs since S11, I have played with around 1000 people ( Skype list peaked at 700 contacts), I never had an RBG leader for a permanent team so I decided to become one, I lead my self from nothing and improved and managed to achieve hero multiple times, I don't deny in my "rbg carrier" that I have not dodged, But I have also spent the last season with over 600 games played and dodged maybe on 2-3 occasions against top end teams / DDOSers. The occasions I felt that my team was ready to compete against "top" teams we did win.. People started to dodge us when we started queuing, I que'd from mid afternoon until early evening before having to PVE, on some occasions we did que during the evening, From my point of view there was nothing more satisfying than being sniped by a team to then take a huge shit on them. I honestly believe there is nothing more fun than completive rbgs with the occasional low team that makes you giggle. I keep one screenshot from when I first started playing RBGs and its of me at 1600 mmr in S11 vs Genetics this is my reminder that whatever you do in game if you put the effort and learn something that you can improve and become better, I wouldn't change my team this season and look forward to playing with them again the most chill relaxed guys I have played with don't QQ over loses and this is why I think rbgs are better. Teamwork and long term synergy is what makes this game fun for me

Very similar to my own experience! I'm glad you felt the same progression I did. When you learn to work well with your team, and all enjoy each others company, it feels just like any other team sport.

there is nothing more fun then winning an rbg vs an equaly good team
winning an arena game i just like meh... we won w/e i expect us to win

This pretty much. I barely played arena last season, but did fifty games of 5v5 as the most overpowered comp, and without making any huge mistakes found it almost impossible to lose. Of course, 3v3 is very different but you'll still go into games knowing you're going to win (godcomp vs monk, etc)

I don't care to argue which setting has a higher skill cap. But you can't make a demonstrable claim about how "anyone would agree that RBG's are more fun or satisfying". There is no way to prove that the claim is true. People enjoy different game types for different reasons to varying degrees.

Yes there is. Ask anyone who plays both rbgs and arena at a high level. it is much more gratifying to win a challenging rbg.
You can argue that it's because you put more time into the game, but it doesn't feel that way for me personally. If the community wasn't such a detriment, more people would realize this. I'm hopeful for wod, because most of the problems brought up in this thread are due to the players, rather than the actual bracket. If people either learn to play fair or blizzard fixes a few bugs, we could see the same levels of participation we've missed since cataclysm.

I agree completely, but I will say this. This is more of an insight on the PvP community as a whole, not just RBGs. It may be easier to single out cheating in a bracket where there are such few teams playing, but I can guarantee you arenas are just as bad if not worse. People just choose to ignore this fact because it's the easiest way to justify their own opinions of the matter, which they are welcome to, but really leaves the RBG community under such a dark connotation that is quite frankly blown out of proportion.

Well, last season was long, and participation in 10v10 always tapers as seasons stagnate. There were points at the end of last season where three or fewer teams were queueing, all exploit teams and dodging each other. The bracket definitely has its lows but this is only because of the barriers to entry when participation is dead- it's hard to make groups and the only people left want to cheat for easy rating,

the only time RBGs were ever real

whenever someone starts a sentence like this it automatically discredits anything else they say
