Ya, today they pay the losers the same prize as the winners because "you are all special".

Then they learn that losing is profitable and stop trying to win.

I think if you made a game that was truly fair, not many would play it.

Is there a chance a single Dev to care about this and fix it?

kick all skank healers from their guilds and problem a bit solved ... community might have some rulezzz

ARENAS are the joke, and they always will be. We need standard warzones to be added to ranked. They're less susceptible to random chance: the higher player numbers make it less likely that a give team will get "out-roled" and have a greater reliance on strategy and counter-strategies. The sooner that devs come to realize this the better.

Exactly, WoW screwed themselves when they added arenas, for the same reason, small teams just accentuate balance issues. Naturally BW copied the bad mistakes...

Soon all your classes end up having to be watered down, because 3 stun seconds is forever in arena and nothing in WZ.

I lost 4 in a roll, first 2 was 3 vs 4 and of course odds weren't in my teams favor, easy win for the pubs. the last 2 had 3 sages and a Commado, the last one had 3 commados and 1 sage. lol I MEAN, WHAT THE FREAK!

So much for BALANCE!!!!

Had an arena where our 4 dps went against 2 dps and 2 heals. Probably would have been more fun had there been 3 and 1.

And no, the 2 healer team wasn't a pre-made. It was imp on imp with only one 2 dps pre-made, the rest were solo's.

I lost 11 games in a row, because the other team had all +1800 index (healer with +2700 ) when i had under geared players with no index and lvl 49-52 stuff!
i faced almost the same team each time!
How is that possible why i don t get two of them in my team for a fair fight?

It happens probably because there is no matchmaking beyond "db-index" or somesuch nonsense. *shrugs*

They really should have:
- added class requirements: 1 heal, 1 tank, 2 dd (or respective hybrids with 'most points in..')
- removed bolster from ranked
- remove solo queue from all Arena matches
- added a system: You have to win 3 times regular in a row to be promoted to ranked. If you lose 5 times in a row you get 'demoted' from ranked.
