You finally made the PvP grind tolerable for people who don't like BGs, then turn around and wreck it.
Thanks for nothing.
QQ moar. Seriously, 1.8k for a victory is too much. "PvP grind tolerable for people who don't like BG's"...meaning what? You don't like BG's, unless they give you an obscene amount of honor? Or you are an arena fighter who can't hack it and have resorted to BG's for honor, and are now upset your easy points are gone?
Blizz came out with something, people hated it, they changed it, it made the problem worse, so they hotfixed it, and people still aren't happy. There is no pleasing you people...
The point is 100% valid.
Why do I have to grind gear in order to compete? It's foolish. They don't do that on the tournament servers. Oh, I get it, you have to pay extra for the obviously not-terrible arena setup.
If i want to arena, I should start with "beginner arena set." This should be GIVEN to me. Instead we go through a black box of math, where I can perhaps upgrade based on performance. But what's the point of the upgrading if the arena is fair? Instead we have certain classes who get a ton of benefit from arena gear, others that don't, certain comps that are great, many that aren't, blah blah.
Make an arena set that is only usuable in arenas, make it fair, then all of the peen waving will shift as people who can't be bothered to GRIND GEAR in order to participate in the arena system without getting demolished by those who have might now be interested.
It would be like showing up to a chess tournament and unlocking pieces on the board via prior ratings. Entirely stupid.
