If you haven't read the PVP Blog post, wtf are you doing here.
27,000 points earned is the new 2200. Then after that 27,000 it's another whole set to buy! Then after that oh look it's 5.3, time for the item level upgrade again... so some 70,000 points later you are fully geared... and oh look the season isn't decided till the very end, so you have to be.
So week in and week out, bye bye fun arena, hello hours of garbage RBGs. RBG or don't pvp competitively. That's the message here.
PvP is going backwards. The whole point of Arena was to get rid of the point grinding. To get rid of the large groups and mandatory hour after hour of BGs. It was having fun with a couple friends, and collecting loot after staying up all Monday night.
For the love of Thrall! When will GC be stopped.
