Why do the majority of people in this game care about arena ratings so much?
I'm going to put my spin on this question.

Think back to ancient Rome. There was a great army and there were gladiators who fought in the arena. If you were a soldier in the army you were nothing more to the city than a soldier who fought other soldiers for their Emperor. Great wars outcomes were based off three things; leaders, numbers and strategy. After a war only the leaders would get credit for their winnings. A knight is nothing more than a knight who fights for someone, or something.

Now look at life through a gladiators perspective. You start as a peasant sentenced to die in an arena for mass entertainment. The wealthy and poor would go to the arena and watch as two gladiators face up to the death. If you were successful relying on no one but yourself everyone loved you. The soldiers, the wealthy, the royal, the poor, other gladiators


But why do these certain people care about arena rating so much? Do they do it to get the fame swifty has? If thats the case they will never get it. Do they do it just to talk !@#$ on other players who dont have high ratings like them? If thats the case then they are just sad and pathetic. Do they do it because they want to be the number 1 player in WoW? If thats the case they will never be number 1 nobody will. I laugh at those types of people and just feel so bad for them with the amount of time they waste.

If you want to be another one of Reszos army then enjoy yourself, but once you pursue your own name and glory you will feel all the greater.

All i do all day is fly around SW, sit in the middle of SW, might do some bg's, and then wait for Reszo's call for wpvp

Before the thread goes on a tangent.

Mvp. When is your video coming out that you promised? A week from now and it'll no longer be relevant

I dont want to try and pursue anything in this game to hopefully be well known by everybody who plays WoW. Thats just a waste of time because it will never happen to me or anybody trying to do it now. I perfer to be a nobody to people who dont know me like everybody else in this game.

lol high ratings dont matter. A high rated player can lose a duel to a low rated player any day. I have seen it happen plenty of times. Now before you can say it, your probably going to say, "duels dont matter they arent balanced." Thats true they arent balanced but, nothing in this game is balanced so there you have it.

Cause they're jealous that they're terrible at this game and the likes of us amazing players grace them with our presence. They see us with the achievements while we flaunt that and our amazing mounts that they only wish to have. They see that they will never achieve what we have reached. So of course they say arena doesn't matter.

Duels don't matter. Massive MULTIPLAYER Online Role-Playing Game. The game revolves around 3v3 and PvE balance, not duels or world PvP.

If u pvp, ur obviously trying to beat another player, do u go world pvp in hopes of being destroyed by the other team? The whole point of pvp is to win, higher rating=winning more, Rating shows if ur actually decent at ur class or not, obviously there are good people with !@#$ty rating, but i dont understand how u say rating means nothing when rating pretty much=100% of what ur skill lvl is at

I dont like getting involved in threads but some comments just baffle me

It's the players that can't get high ratings that complain and cry and say that ratings don't mean anything. They're just bitter.

Not everybody. I dont get jealous of what others have that i dont have. Because jealousy leads to anger, and anger leads to hatred, and hatred leads to violence, and violence leads to death.

Don't know if this is the most elaborate troll, or just super serious.
