Will there be respawns in 2.4 arenas (and a kill limit), or is it deathmatch 4v4 no respawns first to kill enemy team?

So that is a speculation? Have any developers commented on whether there will be respawns?

As far as I can remember, they said it will be deathmatch style. I couldn't find the thread/blog if you asked me to. Someone else might be able to. I know there is supposedly some "blog update" coming soon.

They haven't specified anything beyond the fact that it is a deathmatch. I can't see the point of having respawns though.

i hope they have respawns, i mean wheres the fun in having a match that's under 2 minutes? theres already bad que times to begin with, when i join a wz, i want to get my moneys worth out of it, not finish in a minute and a half then wait 5-10 minutes que'ing again...

Respawns completely defeat the purpose of arenas....

Don't want to die? Don't be terrible and bring competent teammates.

because people that aren't terrible dont ever die and their arena fights still continue after years have passed. I too can be sardonic, sir. the fact is, most arena fights will be over practically before they begin without respawns, at the very least there could be two seperate que options one with respawns and the other without, for those who want their games to be over in sync with the latest commercial break of their preferred television program.

if you bring the wrong comp sure it'll be over in seconds... but same as wow it'll probably the same comps stalemating it out until one gives up out of boredom or someone messes up.

You're joking right?
No respawns is the critical point of arenas and why arenas are the only competitive type of pvp in mmos. the fact that every mistkake of you can and usually will end up in a defeat.
There's no point of having respawns in arenas, it would be like a smaller warzone and not an arena.
Arenas are like Duels with more people.
