My memories of tBC are very, very clear and I have no recollection of arena players being any more or less elitist than people raiding BT and Sunwell.
I know on my server, during TBC, getting the elitist attitude was frowned upon even by our top guild. They saw it as bad for the image and made it harder to recruit players, even risked getting a /gkick if you did it too much. Then WotLK came and made everything puggable so they didn't have to rely on a guild anymore for gear... Then the dicks and the ninja's crawled out the wood works.
What's the point of being among the top when half wintraded and you rose so high by farming those bad players?
Compared to that tbc felt mostly fine aside from pve heroes with warglaives.

I remember TBC too, entire matches decided by mace spec procs. It was good times I guess.
It was the first time players were really able to obtain solid gear from some other means besides raiding. And because it made us feel all warm and fuzzy inside to call players who "conformed to Blizzard's wishes," PVE carebears.
Resto Druid and MS Warrior 2s to the top! Go!
A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon.
Now since I quit WoW..... =)
Ofc I know that there will always be some rotten eggs, just never met any (at least not any I remember).
But then again, depends on how much "omg" they have to be , for you calling them elitist. I mean, if people joins a BG in pve gear, and they gets called out for not wearing pvp gear, I find that acceptable. And that problem is being taken care off with Legion ..
But yes, I am still around. Dealing with a back injury and nerve damage due to military medical malpractice in 2012 which pretty well keeps me stuck and unable to do much physical. Hopefully when the VA is done fighting me and their own doctors and I am not so broke, I can afford to do something. But till then, I have no money, am too broke to go anywhere, and too broken to do much of anything. So here I am. And yes, I am still fighting them, hopefully by June of next year this bureaucratic crap can be over with.

"By living wages, I mean more than a bare subsistence level — I mean the wages of a decent living."
FDR, the President who instituted Minimum Wage. Something to think of whenever you have tell you that the wage or a job wasn't meant to live on.
1700- pretty good pvper
1800- good pvper
1900- excellent pvper
2000- great pvper
I loved the elitism in TBC. It was a gated community where people would accept you as equal once you proved your worth. It was a personal quest back then.
Most of them 2s Glads with some ridiculous comp: RDruid & Mace Spec Warr with Lolherald was hard...
Probably they felt like gods because people were impressed with successful players, showing off the best gear etc. Today, nobody cares.
Mother pus bucket!
Today its the same, create a character on EU-DE Aegwynn, the community is like an unholy lovechild between 12y old halo and league fans.
My memory is pretty good and i can´t recall many elitist people on the servers i played on. Such people are usually d*cks no matter if they are even good at all and you will find them anywhere and in any game.
