Cut arena duration

Blizz, if a BG maxes out at 25 min (approximately) then why on Earth is arena about 45??? Fighting another DPS/Heals 2v2 and it was a stalemate for 40 min, we all just eventually stood and danced to wait for the timeout.

25 min is MORE than enough time for arena, there is absolutely no point in nearly hour long matches that result in no points for anyone.

Seriously, what were you thinking when you thought 45 min was "about right"?????

Just wondering what happens if it's a double healer would it last even longer?

Had plenty of 45min stalemates where the game could have went either way. Couple games where someone choked before the end. Best part of the stalement you dont get a loss for it.

Nope, I posted because I want Blizz to read it.

And we can all dream that one day Blizz will get arena right <sigh>

Don't play 2s as healer/DPS if you can't handle the ties.

Couldn't agree more. I love chocolate cake but I dont want to eat chocolate cake for 45 min.

I never said I couldn't handle the ties, just that 45 min ties are stupid.

Geeze, always one.....

Lower the 2's max time limit, they're not worth anything, no reason to last 45 minutes.

3's and 5's can stay the same.

EDIT: 25 minutes for 2's should suffice.

If you can't eventually get a kill then there is a problem, with your teams/team coordination, and thnkof it as extra practice. Use your quick switches, coordinate your cc with your partner, and you should be able to end things by 45 minutes. Ide say I have a decent amount of experience with arenas and I haven't had one last longer than 25 without scoring a kill.

Actually, you have it bang on, that's what my partner and I did. The team was evenly balanced, so eventually we talked about quitting or going for more practice, so we stuck it out. But when teams are even in DPS and heals, I just don't see the point in 45 min matches. Eventually one team may win, but only if the heals gets sloppy.

The only matches I can think of that last 45min are 2s matches.

No one cares about 2s.


Some people actually do enjoy playing 2's (this is a game, and it's supposed to be what you like to do for fun), and I'm not asking for a nerf bat to anything other than the timer
