No, It wouldn't be a good idea with class balance as is, and no BW aren't going to implement anything PvP related that costs them any money. Heck, we're still waiting on cross server warzones, and ranked season 1.

It would be amasing! Then people will try to get better gear and much more players will be starting playing again.

What? How would completely unbalanced arenas be any different than warzones with regards people trying to get better gear?

unbalanced? Its pretty balanced i think

A team without healers is losing. Thats how it is.

What class do you play?

Edit: Forget it, too much effort to argue, but suffice it to say that in any small scale PvP the dueling classes will dominate. So 2 sins and an operative or whatever will pretty much wipe the floor with everyone. Besides, see my second point about cost. Not going to happen.

No, Arenas in "that other game" have pretty much been a major regret for the developers. The class balancing issues are too severe for small scale arena to warrant adding into the game.

Would you care to explain what an arena is? Is it a small pvp location without any terrain advantages/los? You pitch an idea for something but never explain what it is. So i don't know if I support it or not since you never explained what it is, but as someone else mentioned cross-server warzones should come first, in my opinion.
Basing from what other folks have said I'm guessing its under 8man team fights or 1v1?

People claim imbalance when the health pools are so low that they get 2 shot. Sorcs are on the line of too powerful but now that myself and my mates are getting health pools of 28-32k(38k for the tank), it is much more balanced.

Arena has been a hot topic since release. BW has already addressed it several times, including the first Guild Summit. They wanted to let ToR develop and allow a base to be established before it could be effectively turned for arena and an E-sport. That was the gist of what I read, though that was a while ago.

I actually think 3v3 arena would be really interesting. To see Tank/healer/DPS teams going against trip-DPS gib teams... Can't wait to twitch those videos
