I just find the whole thing funny. Due to the pace of technological growth and the massive increase in bandwidth, we should be seeing games with hundreds of players fighting other over vast areas.

Instead people want a feature that was common in a select few MUDS back in the early 90s.

You're right. They don't take the same skill. Warzones/battlegrounds take MORE skill and thought than small instance death match could ever hope to require.

This I agree with. You get so many people in warzones that only go there because they just want to pvp and kill people. These people ruin the warzones for the players that actually want to try to play to win.

Just put in one Call of Duty warzone and take it out of the random queue (let people specifically queue up for it) to make all the deathmatch kiddies happy. The average quality of player in the objective warzones will immediately improve. Addition by subtraction.
I'm not arrogant. I'm just aware of my greatness.

So many ANTI Arena people,

I promise when they come out I WON'T be one of those that picks on you for being BAD cuz of your rating.

We all know this is the only REAL reason you don't want it!

But............


I don't see myself sticking around for a MMO without one. This is NOT a do it or I quit thread. I just have the most fun playing with FRIENDS and rateds are great but don't take the SKILL/Chess match that is a small instance death match.

I am PVP only, And I'm a WOW Baby (Prob Y I like Arenas) So EndGame PVP to me Does Not mean rateds. Although I'm sure to love playing them.

Has anyone heard If they plan in any way to do small team arenas in the near future?
Arena does not require much skill unfortunately, its a kill or survive gameplay - where luck and team setupīs matter more than individual skill.

The best MMO pvp was always object based, like vanilla wow. There you need to play tactical, you have to use the environment, maps are much larger and a bad position can decide a game etc.

Here I figured it was fear of excessive class tuning based upon an additional factor bleeding into other areas of the game. That and concern that those that prefer objective based wz pvp will be pigeonholed into an arena route for gear reasons.

As the most similarly styled mmo as well as the only major market one I am aware of with an extensive arena system I think its a rather fair and logical means of comparison.

Your avatar fits well with your comment. Self-imbued, like a hutt. You can't imagine reasons other than rating not to implement arenas? Way to have a… ah damnit I don't know the equivalent of "esprit critique" in english. Critical mind? That doesn't seem right.
