Can we not get some more PvP quests outside of ranked to incentivise people to play PvP below level 55? The time it takes to level via PvP right now is frankly a joke and 2 quests just isn't enough to keep up.

That's not really talking about the article, thus off topic.

I'm pretty excited about the prospect of quick seasons and top player rewards! I will definitely be aiming for top three, on at least one of my characters.

Courtney, nice meeting you at the Cantina Tour in Boston.

What will be done to stop people from Qing as DPS while specced as a hybrid healer in solo ranked?

Top three doesn't mean much without cross server...

Cross server would also speed up queue times...

Just saying..

No plans for PvP...So, I have no plans to invest anymore money into this game.

I sat for hours never getting a ranked pop, even at peak times, on many occasions. Other people told me to que up at certain times, and it STILL never popped. I gave up ever trying to get these rewards because the time it takes to even get one pop is just too time consuming. Other people I know have the same problem, I have even had a few of them in group to que group ranked. STILL never a pop. I am frankly ticked off because had the que popped I would have gotten some of these rewards, but it never did. I got 2 ranked matches total out of the entire season because I am not setting for 2 hrs waiting for a que to pop when I have other things to do. It would be really nice to not make it require 10 matches because of this.

Make the seasons one month long and everyone will populate the que and get a chance to get this stuff. Anything longer will just make the que pop less or not at all. You could have a season every quarter for one month. Four a year.

Also, if you bring back the 8v8 Ranked it would make the que pop alot, otherwise this stuff is nearly impossible to get (on my server).

Furthermore, Unranked rewards would be nice and make it fair for the people who cant ever get Ranked to pop. I think both Ranked and Unranked should get rewards. Just different ones. I PVP all the time in Unranked and feel we deserve some love as well.

Top 3 for each class actually discourages playing where it is most competitive. The people in the top 3 will most like be on a server where the competition is very spread out and one team is dominating.

I realize you guys have to be politically correct, but really?

"You are the best and I enjoy reading the forums "

I wouldn't wish a daily dose of PVP forum upon my worst enemies, I really hope you guys get paid exceptionally well for putting up with the cesspit that is the PVP forum.

Not based on the blog.

"In addition to these rewards we feel that we should do something for the best of the best in both Ranked modes! Starting at the end of Season 2, the top three characters of each Advanced Class in Group and Solo will be given a unique reward. That means that the top 96 players in the world will get something to show off their elite status! "
