i kinda agree with this
after playing arena tournmanet periodically in my free time (the wrath s8 one)
i pretty much lose all motivation to play when every tryhard that plays that game for 15 hrs a day
has full wrathful and are stuck at retard ratings while im chilling in relentless because theres a rating requirement to buy gear.

although i hjavent invested very much time on it, and im not the best season 8 player anymore, im still a lot better than people i meet in solo que more often than not and im pretty stuck at teh same rating so teh likelihood of me hitting 2k or w/e the hell it is for full gear just makes me log off

we cant as a community, ask for class blanace, and make gear with better stats only be available to people iwth better rating. that's actually the dumbest logic imaginable
I agree it's dumb
your best bet is to find a warlock or something and get gear from 2's

also solo q is really rough at 1500 mmr :(

But that's how AT stays up $$$ from gear donations
You could also try to look for someone with a VIP account. I have a few sitting around if you want to play w/ some time for fun.

edit: Just realized you might be boomkin
In that case, good luck getting gear b/c balance is easily one of the worst specs in wrath. It's possible though. Marm got rank 1 on balance druid i think, but he's also marm.

the next expansion will be with the Flame Lich king -_-
I can see it now

FlameMourne Legendary
Flamebringer's Will
Dislodged Flaming Object
Phylactery of the Flameless Lich
Bauble of True Flame

can't wait

Maybe druids will finally reach the final stage of pvp evolution and get to use flight form in arena too

I don't like how they removed certain spells from specs. Was cool to see random spells used in very specific situations.
Good example being arcane missiles as frost.

PvE gear is ok when it's easy to obtain and or everyone has it
Good tangible:
Everyone hated pve gear on retail wotlk (dbw, bauble, solace, phylactery, dfo, etc), but it definitely makes the game more interesting when everyone has it on AT. The customization and fun procs and stuff is fine. . . just it's problematic when only a select # of players have it.

#4374827 Is Holinka the worst thing that happenned to WoW PvP ?

but none of you guys would end up playing it because it's not WoW
and that's the reality of things

s7 was artificially balanced because prot warriors were too busy trying to get dragon gears to play arena
ATC ATC ATC whooooooooo
If you had an arena server with s7 though, it would be pretty broken.

End game Wotlk balance was decent. If you look at what was viable it was a pretty extensive list. Really though, the thing that sticks out the most from s7/s8 to me was always healer balance. It wasn't perfect, but it was the ideal model where all the healers had their own very unique niches and brought their own flavor to every composition while all being perfectly viable.

Random but a bit of a rant:
sometimes I feel like it's a lot simpler than you guys make it out to be
argue mechanics for days and balance and all that shit

I like it to keep it simple. I liked/like wotlk because I find it to be the most fun. (I have difficulty with tenses since I casually queue on AT now and then) And at the end of the day, fun along with addiction is what has kept us playing this shitty game and using this nerdy forum for so long. I genuinely wish more people would stop complaining on these forums about how ass they think wod/mop are and instead found some friends and a vip account and played on AT. Not trying to advertise here since I know AJ is kind of anal about talking about AT b/c blizzard pact and w/e, but if every player here who says they missed a past expansion would just come and play on the damn server once in a while, the server would gain back a huge force of players that it has lost over the past 4 or 5 seasons. While Cata AT and MOP AT are  fucked, wotlk AT still gets good numbers with 2v2 and solo q's being instant, and maybe one day 3v3 will get activity back again but prolly not heh. AT also fixed the dumb things from retail by adding things like limiting 1 bauble per team, adding dementia to reduce drawn out wizard matches, and banning shadowmourne+ruby sanctum trinkets. +ingame spectator and ingame replay watching and all that jazz. If you play from the US, you have an excuse since the server is in Paris or w/e. I mean it's free, and everyone here with a bunch of gladiator heads probably has connections to people with idle vip accounts. I just wish people would put their mouth where their money is instead of just talking about how much they miss wotlk (or cata I suppose :ph34r: )or w/e. That's why the AT TBC server died a swift death. All y'all oldies too busy missing the game to actually play the game. I know u don't like what they did with TBC pve gear lolflays, but I mean none of that was ever going to change with the small ass playerbase that they had.

Hopefully wotlk AT, the last living previous expansion, will survive AT bringing a free PVP WoD server which comes out soonish.

Whatever, enjoy your complaining and stuff
