Why are fully geared players at 1500 mmr?

Arenas
Kinda hard to gear now that bg queues are 50 minutes besides arenas

Edit: well the new season is soon anyways.. just annoying for now
80% of arena players are below 1500. nothing new really.
over 80% of them are from BR servers too
we need to put up the wall

Remove AV and IoC and queues are 5 minutes at most.

U mad cos we bad? Yeah, u mad cos we bad! :^D

Edit: Real talk though, I only play on weekends and have 0 interest in getting better at the game. So 1500 will remain my hood.
Because male blood elves need a bracket to play in.
I'm a fully geared Ele with 2200+ experience across 15 seasons and I'm sitting quite comfortably at 1650 in 2vs2 right now. Why? I'm Elemental, I play weird comps with RL friends (my Ele/Combat with an i660 rogue friend last week went surprisingly well actually) and I don't sweat the small stuff.

To be frank, no one really PvPs in this game anymore. Seriously. When we say "all-time low participation" we're not being hyperbolic. There is less than 1% of the rated players there were 3 years ago. The skill-floor is so mind-bogglingly raised right now. The players you're fighting at 1600 in 2vs2 have duelist, arena master, thousands of played arenas, voice communication software, focus modifiers, arena-target macros - the works. We like to talk about "baddies" and "rat-league garbage tier" players but in reality, the rat leagues of today are the top 1% of PvPers, historically. There's no bottom to the pyramid anymore, friend.

Tanking rating for easier caps.

Who wants to deal with survival/rdruid, hpal/mage, affliction/restro shammy every game at higher mmrs

Also it's 2s.

Why does it matters it's 2s.
I don't think they'te tanking rating when they tryhard the whole fight even after you kill their teammate, ppl that intentionally tank rating just leave when the gates open.
