lackluster and unbalanced are a good way to describe it..

There isn't even a team system so it's just a free-for-all.

I think it is fun, but there are a lot of flaws and things that need adjusting. I'm very much looking forward to the patch where they focus on PVP.

Addicting - for a short time
Balanced - no
Challenging - only in some cases

Most match-ups between two randomly selected opponents results in a total one-sided match where one side CANNOT win against the other at all (usually due to gear differences). Some of the remaining match-ups yield a stalemate due to neither side being able to damage the other faster than they can regenerate life. Only a handful of matches get to the point where they are interesting to watch, where no one is expected to win 100% of the time. Unfortunately, this category of "fun" match is very rare and usually only occurs at the top level of play.

Iria nailed it. And another truism would be WD vs another class wouldn't (or highly rarely) be fun to watch without WDs foregoing some skills.

It's very unlikely that this will happen. The patch 1.1 deadline was given before the pvp blog that said they're shelving TDM. It took them what, 3 years of development to design TDM? Now they're starting from scratch all over again. I would say real pvp won't come until at least the xpac.

In a general way, I find PvP very interesting. That's what made me keep playing D2 so long after beating the game some 30 times or more. The same happens now with D3. I have 6 lvl 60 chars, and that means I went through the entire game story at least 24 times (6 chars x 4 difficulty levels)! Farming is rarely rewarding, and therefore by now it is PvP what keeps me on. On the other hand, the present version of the game is very limited in that matter. There is only FFA (Free for all) and the classes are unbalanced. Only top geared chars have a chance and PvM builds are mostly bad or totally useless for PvP. For instance, my best PvM char is a double tornado Barb, that farms at MP10 without problems, but absolutely sucks ate PvP. For PvP, my DH is the only one really fun. I have a PvP barbs that still sucks and my Monk is getting better, but a well built and top equipped WD has no match in PvP (I have one, but very poorly equipped). I think Blizzard will have to do some investment here if they want the game to be a long term success as D1 and D2.

This. After you've maxed everything out and beat everything, it becomes redundant to play. Most people look forward to PVP.

I just hope Blizzard takes the time to look at some of these discussions :/

it's fun and everything just unbalanced

start with balancing first

and than into team deathmatch

classes that needs to be heavy looked at barbarian and witch doctor

the rest are kinda on par with eachother

there is no attribute sum standardization, i.e a total amount of stats you get that you then distribute . Hence it is pay 2 win

If they focus on PVP like they focused on everything else in D3, I pray to God that they don't. At least right now we have an unbalanced brawling system, it's better then nothing.
