This has nothing to do with pvp participation. For such an article we need numbers, data to compare pvp participation in regards to the expansion, total number of players in region/ playing at the time, and then we can make comparative segments between numbers and class/pvp changes and look at how one correlated the other. Without data, this is just an opinion, a basic blog post..
i am not a huge fan of Arenas mainly because you need a pool of friends that are on when you want to play. I also do not like that Arenas are the only way to get good PvP gear, yeah you can earn Conquest points in BG but it takes ages. You also get way more honor in Arenas than in BGs.I think there should be a exchange for honor to Conquest points or BG quests where you get 5 daily and can take another set quest after that.
Just an FYI, for a fire mage, the corrupted gladiators badge is a not a 0.1% upgrade, its quite a bit more.As a player that gets enjoyment from PVE.. please dont put PVE BIS gear behind PVP content (and vise versa for a PVPer).
This article is pointless without any numbers to support it He may well be accurate but how the hell do we know?
Focus on 1v1 balance and create 1v1 arenas and warmode pvp rewards and you ll see people actually interested in pvp, I have little reason to bother with forced group pvp, I pvp for fun mainly but if there's 0 reward there's very little reason to do it outside the occasional fun.
Have I ever? Yes.Have I really? I guess not, juding by my achievements for Arena.I only have World Wide Winner and Step Into The ArenaThe numbers are interesting.Step Into The Arena - attained by 51% of the profilesMercilessly Dedicated - 23%Vengefully Dedicated - 16%Brutally Dedicated - 13%World Wide Winner - 38%So I am not alone, half of the players try to play Arena but this is hardly a common player activity.I would not miss Arena if they patched it out tomorrow.
Who da fck reads this actually?
I had started doing rated arenas for some rating so that I could buy them sweet Legion Elite PVP gear, not knowing that I'd need to have that rating during that season in Legion, not in BFA, and after that my only goal for getting honor points was to rank up in honor lvl and unlock some of them Legion artifact tints. Yea, really, the PVP gear in BFA was just horrid imo
I want to echo the other statements about hard data; please please show numbers if you can. I don’t PvP that much but I’m really interested to see some numbers, it’s such a different world and AWC seems to be on all the time.And if you want to attribute the downward trend in PvP participation you have to show it as % of the population- I say this because the total number of total WoW players has evidently decreased over time as well.
I was hoping to see numbers, not an opinion. Click bait, regret falling for that.
there's 1 more. The gush hero that thinks he's skilled, coming back to rival after pre-patch
I loved doing Ashran in WoD, hopping in to do some PvP during my downtime or when I couldn't sleep.... does anyone know how it's doing nowadays?
