The player base is probably the biggest reason why rBG's are dead. You players killed your own bracket by your damn self. No amount of "item incentive" will matter if Joe is sitting at his computer with a caution sign thru his network status. Even to this day, you top teams still cheat against each other, you still sell pilots, and you still only play with the same "clique" of people. It doesn't matter how many random cosmetic things you throw into rBG's, that bracket it literally aids due to the DDoS'ing fiasco of MoP.
This is so true and also applies to arena to some extent. The player base imo is what has ruined and still is ruining PvP in general a lot more than any shitty game mechanic or how broken any class might be.
MM doesn't even seem bad. It honestly just needs some form of instant damage other than Chimera Shot and probably a change to the mastery since standing around like a retard to do max damage is pretty counterproductive and as it gets further into the expac the amount of mastery we can get will be insane.
