They also need to completely REDO the ranking system in PvP. Make it much more clean, simple, concise. Seriously, we have been using this ranking system for how long? Burning Crusade? Thats about 5 years of this. Please Blizzard fix this. Going to the Blizzard forums now ill post a link so you can come and help with this. This is outrageous.
"Three Apples changed the World, 1st one seduced Eve, 2nd fell on Newton, and the 3rd was offered to the World half bitten by Steve Jobs."
You know, i've had a serious consideration to stop buying gametime shortly after i realised how they handled the whole start of the season crap.
That consideration just got back. Stronger than ever.
I mean, how much less can you care about people fucking up your game than not doing jack shit about this?
So after reading through this thread i decided to check up on the WoW forums to see if they could provide more understanding to this topic. Well it didnt. It confused me more. I looked at most linked Arena teams and the statistics just dont make sense. How is it a team can have 160 games played but the characters on the team only account for every won game and less than a handful of the losses?
What does MMR have to do with arena rating? Why if they are exploiting MMR are their losses not being counted?
Tank it up, collect points.

Shame on Blizz for not fixing this kind of exploitation IMMEDIATELY.
The whole arena/RBG system needs a full restart with t2 weps and recent achievements confiscated.
Anything other than this is going to cripple the entire PvP system and Blizzard's reputation for a long time.
blizzard set the ladder on the site back and froze it so it doesn't update, but people are still on cheated teams. Looks like they're just trying to make it look as not-bad as possible.
US ladder only, EU ladder still has the hilarious results.

nameing and shaming rule is there to protect the innocent from being wrongfully called out. What the OP has done has shown undeniable proof that someone has cheated. Even though hes spammed a load of tiny achievements its not possible to get that high a ratings boost in just 1 day. (let alone the half an hour he actually did it in)
Have you ever stepped on a lego piece while barefoot?
Can you recall that exquisitely piercing and utterly unforgettable pedal agony? Now imagine what would happen if you were to step on between 10 and 25 angry, well armed lego pieces which are all acting in brutal concert, and tell me how that would go for you.
Plus they have magic and sharp objects.
Also, a complete reset would be unfair to all the people who haven't queued this week and haven't had any rating inflation because of the mmr abusers.
I know a couple of guys who have been stuck on 2.1k for 4-5 weeks now. They queued yesterday all day until they hit one of these guys, now they are 2.2k and sitting on it for weapons.
I don't see them doing an MMR reset or a ladder reset, it's just the way Blizzard are. They will probably say nothing about the matter, sneakily fix the exploit in a couple of weeks, ban the people who abused and then pretend nothing happened and ignore the collateral damage caused by it. (Random teams gaining 100-200 rating off a team who left before gates opened).
The best thing to do would probably be to reset all arena achievements and ratings to 2 weeks ago, if that's possible.
Or are you ok with all this going on?

Most, if not all of these players are mmr exploiters:

Edit: The ladders and the site linked aren't fully updated yet. Currently it's much worse than what is shown here.
