I must be confused about something. I just read compeletly through this ...
You know that annual tournament realm that you have to pay extra to play in?
What I gather is that they are giving you free access to a version of that IN ADDITION to a new PvP zone which is IN ADDITION to your normal arenas that is rated separate from eachother.
You are complaining about having to schedule time to play a completely new and free arena ladder that does not affect the standard ladder?
Pleas tell me what I am missing?
The part where the old ladder doesn't give you any rewards and is literally only for conquest points?
You’ll be able to practice whenever you like outside of those times, but if you want to earn the prestige awards, you’ll need to hone your skills and climb to the top of the ladder at the appointed times
