Lack of motivation for arenas in 5.2

Arena and Rated Battlegrounds

Elite gear changes made in-game prestige gone for good. I'm aware of the fact that I'm not gladiator material and will never be one, so my only goal 2.2k breakpoint for elite gear is gone, mediocre players like myself just won't have reason to pvp anymore - sorry "Duelist" or "Rival" in the end of 6 month season just won't cut it, peace out.
Word.
fun?

so all these 1550er players will stop playing cause there aint t2 people at 1700 anymore and all people will have mroe equall gear so skill will matter more?
yeah pretty much same as op, reason i play wow is random and rated bgs, arenas on my realm are dead and even with top rank i would have norting from it in patch, as i have better looking mounts and better titles
having same gear with 2.4 rating after 200 pretty hard rbg games as backpedaling ppl who are shocked when i run around them is really stupid

same gear wont make anything more balanced, as there still is 11 classes, and some will allways be better, and some will always counter another hard

balance criers should go play fps games
Healthy competition, self game improvement.

Though most pvpers agree that vanity rewards should be placed instead of gear difference as a motive (for those that need a motive to pvp other than dynamic gaming/competition/fun) since before cata.
Now that the one is getting settled, probably the second will get as well.
5.2 kills pvp imo
Im going to like not facing T2 geared rbg heros carried from 1500-1700 by gear then getting stuck
that change is sooooo crap...

elite geared backpaddling 1300 heroes wont be that dangerous at all, but i cant see where its fair to give them the same gear as ppl, who rly train, search for improvements and finally get high in rating.
i mean... i myself dont have a 2,2k rating...never had...but i know: when i cant break it... I JUST DONT DESERVE TO HAVE IT

Funny that you mention it, I heard alot of players say that gear should not matter in PvP, it should be skill based. No need to worry then eh? ;)
I don't think anyone that has been at 2.2k or above more than once cares about having unique things.

Grow a pair and get used to it. Who cares. Your getting a 2.2k unique transmog enchant to keep you a special snowflake for your hard earned( >.> ) 2.2k whenever you decide to get it. If you've lost motivation from the fact you don't have a retarded weapon to global less experienced people thats your own problem, don't make a thread on the forums as if its some huge issue your not PvPing.

Peace.
You can still get rating, they are just changing it so you can't FOTM re-role for the season and then power your way up the ladder like a brainless moron. Why do people play FPS' and other games which don't give tiers for things, to make it more FAIR.

These changes will make things more balanced, and if you can't even see past your own perspective, you are probably one of the high rating jerks who exploit whatever you can in arena, thats not fun, fun is just playing the game to enjoy it. Players can still get high ratings, they just have to make sure their wins are more consecutive and consistent, making ratings a lot more honest.

So now you can't hide behind a high rating, and you will probably get a lot more respect for having it IMO. I love how the new gear system works, it means I can stay loyal to my favourite class and not be forced to re-role.
why do you play this game? only for gaining pixelprizes?
Yeah all i talked to lost motivation to push 2,2 in arena or rbgs. U can just go casual on alts and all ur chars will have same gear. Skill should be awarded!

Scrubs runing around with t2 weps is just wrong, its like giving herroic pve weps for lfr scrubsl, its is totaly wrong!

Why should pvp be diffrent from pve? Wow always been good when u need to work for ur gear, this is turning into gw2, which will be wows fall, i hope blizz realize that.
fun?

so all these 1550er players will stop playing cause there aint t2 people at 1700 anymore and all people will have mroe equall gear so skill will matter more?


Its bad, skill = better weps just like pve.

If ppl are skilled they wouldnt be stuck on 1700 either.

Then why are u stuck at 1500-1700 then? If its so easy to get rbg weps why dont u get them?

Or u can get elit gear on all your alts and beeing very good on ur maia and !@#$ on alts, all got same gear, its is kinda depressing.

Pvp turning into some casual, u can go casual whoe season and then when u get elit gear just push hero of the horde. i dont think blizz wanted that since they said, they wanted "alive", this will just make rbgs more dead and ppl will just cap arena.
I really dont get what the hell you guys whine about.

A true pvper wants it to be about skill and not f*cking gear. Everyone is boosted nowadays anyway so it is the best decision blizzard has made in a long time.

The ONLY one's who are against ppl worse than them getting the same gear are the same people who got boosted or lucky rbg rating. You are just used to outgearing people.

PvP should ALWAYS be about skill. Nothing else. And the achievements still exists and people will still want to fight for higher conquest cap and rating.

Look what happend to Gw2 pvp when all got same gear, ppl lost motivation.

Ofc bettter players should have better gear. With ur logic all pvers should have seam gear? Cause its about skill right?

I can guarantee less ppl will play pvp after this change, making this game way too casual. Rewards promote skill, promote ppl to get better, this change u will see backpaddle ppl with elit gear, and they have to try to be better players.

Gear progression is the biggest motivation in mmo games. I mean look at bf3 even in a fps game u have to work for weps and to unlock stuff, it makes games more interesting.

You are just bad and lazy player, that wants seams gear as good ppl with no effort in it? Give me 1 reason us hould have same gear, if u suck at the game? Skill must be rewarded.

I played GW2, and i can tell you that it was not the gear that drove me of that.

Clunky movement system and Boring abilitys was the major points of why it was a bad game.
