Do 60 arenas or 6 RBGs?This is good news. Insta RBG revival for lower ratings, where alts will regularly try to speed cap.Good change ! The part about it being from rated content is very good! More people in the ranked system = better. Bravo Ion!
I don't get why it has to be rated PVP. Like, I can play the bare minimum amount of games in arena at 1200 rating and somehow get better pieces than someone who plays battlegrounds all day? I agree that higher ranked players should get gear at a faster pace but not allowing people who play battlegrounds to get any 'conquest' gear, is kinda silly. Now people who only play battlegrounds will be worse off than the PVE payers there or the arena players there. I guess this wouldn't be as much of an issue if rated battlegrounds were even remotely popular but, here we are.
So this changed the way you "cap" to rated BGs/arenas only? I think if you compare time needed to "cap" now and how long it will take to unlock ONE pvp reward from great vault, it is way faster in SL. However, if you want more options, that is gonna take way more time.Also guys, if you think solo q is gonna happen at this point in a development cycle, you are extremely short sighted.Adding separate queue on top of rated ones and splitting player base even further would do so much harm unless you have massive amount of pvpers. Sure, it could work for couple of resets of a new season but when there is any significant decline of players queueing, you are down to the gutter. So unless Blizzard thinks it could solve more issues than generate, they won't do it.
Personally i really cant figure out if this is a QOL change or whatfirst of all, what tf does it means that we need honor to upgrade conquest gear? will we have to play Bgs since you can farm way more honor there?how long will it take to upgrade? the conquest gear ilvl isnt related to rating anymore?
I really hope there is a ripcord for Blizzard to pull for PvP.
Seems like a good change to me. If you compare the requirements of loot for the raid and mythic plus they all seem reasonable. Do 6 arena games at low rank and get an item. It's about the same time scale as doing a m+ low dungeon. Quite fair.
Good. The pvp'only crowd can enjoy the game without having to do things they don't enjoy.
NO. Conquest could be earned from regular BG, but much more slowly. This is a terrible change for those who enjoy PvP but have no chance to do rated on a regular basis.
I think most people are overlooking the fact that you get honor even if you lose, to the contrary of conquest which is only obtained when winning.So even the most terrible person that queues arena can get their weekly cap eventually
This is a crappy change for anyone who doesn't have a regular team or partner for rated pvp. Or anyone who just likes to do some random bgs in their spare time. There's nothing wrong with how it worked before -- if you did lower-level bgs and capped your conquest, you got a reward. If you did higher-level rated content, you got higher ilevel gear to match. Simple. Now what's the point of random bgs?
