I love arenas. they're fun. i'm perfectly OK with getting a high ranking. i'm perfectly ok with going 0:10 for an evening. because oddly, winning is fun, but so is...fun o.O
Giving it the all and winning or losing just shows room for improvement.
saw a HILARIOUS post in here about: you want to just jump in and start off good, instead of watching high ranking teams blah blah... because apparently, all you have to do to be 'good' at pvp is watch a video. practice makes more perfect than watching certain situations arise that you may or may not deal with, and not see situations which you may always be dealing with.
pvp isn't pve. watching pvp videos can show you neat spots, but there's a player on the other side that's going to try and make everything you absorbed watching a video mean nothing.
friends > srshrdcr arena peeps. let them die of early heart attacks over a game that will mean nothing when the servers are formatted to make room for another game.
