Clearly you weren't around in the days of Follow :P


^this

also. i think the long story short is, rbg's are a time investment, arenas are a skill investment (im talking 3s and 5s.)

this isnt a challenge or trying to egg on an "i told you so!," but we'll see how well RR's rbg group does when the system changes.

also for those of you that say "rbg = pvp = arenas" but only have a high BG rating and just do "2s for points" you just dont know what real pvp is and you make me sad (and yes that is to say that arenas are real pvp). Dont get me wrong, there are tactics in rbgs, sure... but arena's tactics are much more skill-based and fast-paced (sick rhymes dawggg).


Malien pretty much summed it all up.

No way guys I'm really good I swear, I just avoid the ways to prove it as much as possible. I mean...I don't really like arenas. Yeah that's it. I COULD hit 2.4k at will bro. I just don't want to.

65% in RBGs =/= 65% in Arenas.

Its ok that rogue is Reckful and we all know since RBG's aren't for people who are good at pvp he must not be that good right?

Because that's 100% the argument people are making... 2's aren't for people who are good at pvp either, and no top end PvE guilds ever do 5 man heroics : / Don't be so dense

I guess the Alliance all Glad RBG teams must be far better than the Horde ones.

I was simply making the point all the top PvP players in arena happen to be on the top rated BG teams. Honestly to make a kill requires just as much synergy as arena cause you have more healers to worry about / reaching returns on cc's if used poorly. Just like arena you have to really work to set up a kill, its not anything like a regular BG. They are different indeed but the argument that its not real PvP and just requires time is also null. Yes getting a high rating right now is slightly bugged due to not losing points but not just anyone can get it and it does require knowledge of PvP. Granted I am a PvE nerd so flame me all you want and call me naive.

i wont flame you.. you're just wrong.

if all of the arenas that i ever lost didnt count against me, i'd be 3k rated too, just like all you pve nerds in RBG's

this is Malien btw. I'm on loaf's comp and didnt wanna log off his toon 'cause i dont trust putting my PW into his sketchy computer...

You can break 3k with a 50% win ratio. We faced most of the top tier people when we did our run. Even after I tanked my win ratio...if you are at 50% in rated BGs you are doing it wrong*.


*wrong=right, since enough time investment can get a 50%er a 3,000 rating.

I agree that it is broken as is right now without losing points for losses sorry if I didn't make that clear I was simply trying to say that if someone did get gear from an RBG or has a high rating from it, it does not mean that they don't know how to PvP or are terrible. Plus come patch your point that they are just time = points will be mute. So the first season was a bit of a bust to get gear not like any of us will be getting glad or anything serious from it. Also if your arena team record was all teams you were ever on, including those bad comps or ones you kinda puged, I am sure your win ratio wouldn't be as high as you like to gloat it as, just saying.

sorry let me clear it up for you chances are, saying this simply because there is one person out there that it doesn't apply to, that you have been on multiple teams this season playing multiple comps with up to hundreds of games and are now on a team that has a good rating and win to loss ratio and are saying that it was all skill not time or comp. Thus you have spent lots of TIME to get to a 2200+ team with many losses. Similar to how to are calling out out rated bg's. Now all that said I will say again yes the fact you don't lose points is bugged but it doesn't let any bad player simply coast through to 2200+ any more then someone could do in arena. Difference is you can't clean the score with BG's like you can do with arena's.
