Ranked was working better in standard WZ's than it currently is in Arenas. Neither are what I think they should have done though. For Ranked, they could have simply done what they just did for GSF - introduce a pure DM mode of the same maps since you seem to think guarding was the big issue. I think they should have invested the arena resources into more maps...variety is what I feel is drastically missing from PvP (ranked or unranked).
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

And you have no clue what you're writing about. Practically all I do is PvP. But, thanks for the attempted troll. Better luck next time.

Same format as previously...just end preseason and get into the legit rewards.

Expand maps, expand gametypes, sure include arenas who cares.

Just not letting it squander and die...there's your great detail. All that's needed...just some attention and love.

Well extrapolating common opinion from the small subset of people YOU KNOW is a poor way to begin an argument. It also sets you up for having your arguments ignored.

No, I said guarding is ONE of the issues. Something I've noticed is that a lot of players don't realize or care about the importance of objectives. To me, the person who takes a bunch of deaths because they are the only one trying to cap a node is more valuable than the DPS who just sits an d waits for the opposing team to run back to the fight. That person might get a ton of medals and a high kill count, but the one who was actually trying to win is more valuable, in my eyes. Some people just toss the MVP to the person who healed the most. Some to the one who has the most medals. Rarely, someone gives a vote to the person with the most objectives points.

Arenas remove the ambiguity. On a small team, with the only objectives being to kill and not get killed, the team members will know full well who played the biggest roll in a victory or who tried hardest in a crushing defeat.

Honestly, I can see the value in this more than simply removing arenas, as some people suggest. Keep everything the same as it is in unranked and let the chips fall where they may. With arenas in the mix, it would at least balance things out a little bit. Still not the ideal solution, but the best one I've seen so far.

I don't know. I didn't start PvPing until arenas were introduced. Now I'm hooked, though.
