Gear levels are low, but that doesn't mean they make players bad. If you have a good set of players / team, you would face roll all the "lower" rating players anyways.
Until there is a rating decay, the same teams will either win trade or just sit at a high rating and camp getting Glad.
A part of me feels like the high rated players just want an MMR reset so they can farm bad teams for 100 games.
I will agree that it is a bad thing for the same players to get Glad every season, but when it comes to the "top" players, it will always be a certain few that do it. Rating decay would help, but at a high MMR, the same set of teams would keep playing themselves and just resort to win trading to keep their rating. There is no real way to fix a system like this since there are no actual "tournaments" regarding PVP.
All high MMR teams are usually part of a "clique" , just like how back in Vanilla you had "teams" who would prop people up to help get them FM and such.
Your friend probably only got better because he was carried by you or other friends. The arena community is very tight knit. If you're a nobody, chances are you stay a nobody unless you find someone willing to carry you and mentor you who in return will brag how much they've carried you. You'll end up dealing with weeks of abuse until you realize... what the fuck is the point in all of this?
You have to partly blame the arena community for why arena is so unpopular. Yeah sure Blizzard doesn't care about pvp, we always hear that cop out. But the real reason its unpopular is because the high expectations set on new players and what they have to do to actually be taken seriously. You have to practically sell your soul to the arena community and act just as stupid and ego inflated as they all are. Don't forget to play female characters, listen to dubstep and smoke weed. Half of the getting good process is not even about skill, but about how much you fit in with the culture and how much those people will accept you.
Jesus christ this is the only WoW-site where so many people literally cannot understand simple concepts like MMR-resets being good for competitiveness. It's embarrassing reading some of these posts. Stick to pet battles or whatever it is you do.
It's pretty clear that blizzard are sending us the message that pvp is not their concern and we should pve or gtfo.
This is ridiculous.
Now this is always a problem, the MMR resetting doesn't cause this, it just aggravates the situation even further. Then there's the obvious issue with the rank 1 teams from last season pretty much cruising to rank 1 again if they don't suck complete balls, shitting all over the competition once again. It's not impossible to get it off a team that has more MMR but it sure as hell is not fair at all. They earned the rating the season before, that shouldn't entitle them to a free ride to it once again the season after. There should be competition. This fucks it up completely. I'm repeating myself. That's the point.
I noticed this while watching Reckful's stream, his 3's team were 10-0, 1100 rating and 2.4k MMR. GG blizz
OT: Read the thread, first thought " here we go again......"
Oh! Oh! Terrible, terrible damage.
Do they just no longer want players to sub anymore?
Fly fast, stay low, hit hard.
