    Could anyone explain to me why is that a bad decision?
    I really do not know since I am not that much into PvP, but I would like to learn the cause of the QQ

    Meh I can read much faster then I can listen :>
    I will though - thanks ;p

    EDIT: I find it really hard to believe that if you are really good, you still cannot get the rating you need for gladiator rewards etc.

    people who held high MMR's in the last season now have an tremendous advantage in gaining rating, so it's rather obvious who's going to get high rating and who's not.

    I was considering trying out rated for the first time this expansion, but if this is how it's gonna be handled, sod it. Honestly, they've pretty much just killed any and all reason to try and compete unless you got a high MMR last season.

    Basically means whoever was glad last season will play 1 week of arena and get glad this season too.

    We don't know why, we can only speculate that the people in charge of pvp at blizzard are utter morons.

    Forgive my ignorance, but how is this possible? Is the math posted somewhere on how this system works?

    I expected it, so I'm not even goint to buy MoP because blizzard can't deliver a quality game anymore.

    You have massively high MMR, lets say 2.5k for this example.

    You will gain 92 team and personal rating for every win in order for the system to match your team/personal rating with your MMR.

    so this team plays 30 games, wins 25 and they're already at 2.3k rating

    This choice will weed out the pvp players from wow just like what happened in cata. People arnt going to sit around for 6+ months watching some team take rank 1 with 30 games and never play again. The whole drive to trying is in thinking everyone has the same chance, and this corrupt MMR system for some reason continues to crap on any idea of balance. This whole thing does not make sense. I want to scream someone underhanded is being paid to leave MMR like it is, but that idea sounds dumb when talking to an international company like Blizzard, yet you see dumb choices like this. I swear I think someones sponsor is paying blizzard to give their contracted player an easy edge, it just dosnt fit without something corrupt going on.

    I wanna say this dosnt surprise me, but I guess I just feel bad for returning players who returned to wow under the guise of MMR promises that turned out to be lies just before the shindig starts. It's like this game has it out for itself. It thinks it can survive on PVE content alone. I respect that pve does account for a large amount of the playerbase, but a lie like this MMR deal will clip a solid 1/4 of their returning players, the rest when the new content isnt new so more.

    Company makes so much money it just puts its head up its @## on issues like this and plays dumb later on to excuse it. I just wonder whoever is getting paid to keep MMR alive is making enough to justify this blatant underhanded cheating.

    I just don't understand what they said that they were going to reset it and then, in a very sneaky move, they say that they won't.

    What is Blizzard exactly trying to achieve with this? What is the logic behind this decision, especially when you said you are going to reset it?
    Shadow Walk : Significantly increases Stealth effectiveness for 6 sec, but causes Stealth to be nerfed to justify its usage. In addition, it uses old Enveloping Shadows icon and has no sound, animation or spell effect to show that the skill is actually doing something.

    I'm really anxious to see their explanation about this. This is very very bad decision...
