For the record, my avatar image has been "temporary" for years now.
RBG is nothing else than Arena in a 10vs10 format on different maps, and the mode is not a deathmatch but something else... What can be so bad about this?
I never understood why people complain about parts of the game they don't enjoy.
I mean I don't like PvE for example, so I won't do any. This doesn't mean I will open posts like: remove pve please cause it suxx ...
Just do whatever you enjoy doing...
I like rbgs. Arenas are pretty uninteresting to me. So, I'm very glad RBGs were added to the game. I've never broken 1800 in either.
If they could somehow remove all the boosters and wintraders then I'd probably like RBGs more. As it stands, RBGs are just a way to get carried to gear. Nothing more and nothing less. 8 good players can carry 2 terrible ones, but 1 great player can't carry 2 terrible players in 3v3.
Since boosting will never stop (even after 5.2), they should make RBGs and arenas rewarding in other ways like with unique transmog gear.

Regardless of how anyone on the outside feels, blizzard loves RBG and they won't ever admit that it is a completely terrible environment that caters to mongoloids and win traders.

And I'm sure RPers would, you know, roleplay Dishonorable Kills instead of letting the game decide which NPCs you're allowed to kill.

All in all having a successfull RBG group seeing as how you need 10 people actually working together to fulfill all kind of objectives I'd argue that RBG is overall more complicated and challenging then Arenas. Altough the rating gain is higher and most likely on purpose so.

The thing that bothers me this season is how few people still play arenas. Trade chat is being spammed by people looking for RBG groups or RBG boosters. The people that are playing arenas nowadays are either blue geared players, capping their conquest points, or people that obtained the T2 weapon from RBG's, ruining the game for people who are aiming for 2k-2.2k with T1 weapons in arenas. Especially with the rating inflation in RBG (and arena rating no longer being inflated) the whole group between somewhat decent and good arena players has moved to RBG's because it is way easier to obtain T2 there. And like with the economy, if you kill the middle class, you kill society.
