and of course someone will call me out for being bias or something, thats fine--i accept that. of the 2 rank 1 titles i've gotten this expansion, 1 has been from 5s. i always push for rating in the bracket im interested in. at the moment that happens to be 5s. lately i've had no motivation to push rating in 3s.
BUT ON TOPIC
it just sickens me to see the naivety of the general AJ population and PvP population as a whole. the anti 2v2, 5v5, and RBG attitudes of this community are really bad for the game itself. if you like WoW and want to be playing it in the future, you should try playing every bracket. the same thing goes for blizzard. i think they might be killing an already shrinking pvp population with this change.
it was dumb of them to remove titles from 2s aswell. every bracket is competitive. the only reason to shove people into the small box of 3v3 is to streamline the game to become more of an esport.
the only reason 5s has a bad image is because of the cheating minority (myself included). there are fewer teams and more cheating teams, so naturally its the bracket everyone points to when they think of generally scummery. if you ignore the cheaters and focus on the actual competitive aspect of 5s, its definitely a bracket that should be respected. overall there are less balance issues in 5s (although R M SP RSHAM x is 100% the best comp), and many different comps can be successful.
Go to your interface folder in your WoW folder, open your Gladius folder, find a file named "Speclist.lua," open it with a word editor (notepad works), and delete the following line (it should be at the top):
[GetSpellInfo(56638)] = L["Arms"]. -- Taste For Blood
