New arena

The old arena system was much better. The only real incentive to arena now is to hit 2200 to earn gear. The progression to earn the gear was what was fun about arena. Tier 1 all being accessible without rating is not fun. It took me from playing seasons 5-8 to finally earn my weapons, but I honestly enjoyed it. Now there is no gear to shoot for except for the 2200 gear; everything under 2200 is just a conquest point grind. The whole new arena scheme is just silly. I am really hoping that it gets changed back, though I doubt that will happen.

the way i see it on tab is that im limited to 1300 ish points and i dont think that top number ever gets higher unless i get a higher mmr. Am i right? If i am right then yes you do have to get a rating to get gear or you will be stuck at 1300ish points forever. I could be wrong but I think thats how it works

If your goal for playing arena is to get arena gear then you're doing it wrong.

You know PvP isn't supposed to be a gear grind. It is supposed to pit player against player and let skill decide.

I believe there still will be a T2 weapon set that will have increased stats, but not any armor. I might be wrong, I only was starting to play last night and haven't checked out the vendors yet.

Higher ratings = gearing faster.

What about titles/achievements? New system is much better.

I actually agree. Although hitting 2.2k isn't so tough for me anymore, I remember when I first hit 1800. I was so excited to get my weapon, and now that feeling will be gone from players in a similar situation.
