Two wrongs make a right? I am just as disgusted with rBGs as i am this joke of a change.
It's obvious that RBG's aren't going anywhere. That means people need to find the best system for the current incarnation of PvP. Old setups won't work. And the fact still remains: awards that give a competitive advantage undermine competition, which undermines PvP entirely.
People with T2 aren't keeping these 1500 rated scrubs from getting a higher rating. The only time i will remotely buy this nonsense is if someone has a highest rating of 2150-2199 then you could say ohh i keep running into T2 people lower than that though i dont think so, the thing holding you back is how bad you are :)
Clearly you don't understand what I'm saying. I'm saying people equal in skill to a ~1500 arena player are awarded T2 for having an RBG gimmick in their spec. So yes, in many cases, the weapon can be a barrier for players, even in lower brackets. By the way, the insults just make you look like more of an idiot. If you had a good point, you wouldn't need them to get it across. (And yes, I'm aware I opened this post with an insult in response to yours. I'm guilty of stooping to your level.)
I could make a list all day it will get nothing done.
So, your intention is to complain, but offer no constructive ideas? This comes to mind: http://i.imgur.com/kFPyV.jpg
The people complaining aren't being affected by T2 is my point. You have these people complaining that T2 is holding them back. Do you honestly think T2 is keeping these people down that can't break 1600?
In some games, sure the weapons might hold them back. This change, positively affects gameplay in terms of competition. Its only negative effect is on the egos of kids like you. Not something most people are concerned about.
People are rewarded for being the best at work. Let's say you work in some sort of sales company and you happen to sale the most out of everyone. Would you be happy if your reward was a t-shirt instead of an actual money bonus lol?
Another bad analogy. I'm saying the reward winner isn't the only person who should determine the reward. If I outsell everyone, I should get all of the companies cash reserves? It's what I think I should get, so I should get it, right?
Yes everyone has opinions and i am not the only person pissed off about these dumb changes.
Most of the people I've seen offer opinions about this aren't bothered by the change. Many of them think there needs to be a new reward system in place, but not one with a competitive advantage. Only players I really see fired up are people who float near 2200 on a regular basis.
