Its been a while since I posted here last, I quit the game in early Cataclysm and have recently picked it up again. Personally I think they've made an amazing turnaround from the horrible expansion that was Cataclysm, yet there are a few things that continuously grind my gears.
I know this is a big generalization but almost everyone on 1600 MMR have almost full Tyrannical PvP gear. Now I'm not complaining that this makes PvP too hard for me, because quite frankly its not, the point I want to make is that PvP has lost its progression. A huge percentage of the PvP gear currently available can be acquired without having a specific rating. Now I want to draw a parallel to the system they had in WOTLK, every piece of gear (or maybe it was just the tier) required a specific arena rating. These all ranged from 1500 to 2200, there was always something to look forward to as you gained rating.
Personally I think its wrong that anyone without PvP gear or arena experience can jump into arenas and just leech of free wins to get their Tyrannical weapon. It seems like Blizzard really has adopted the mindset of preschool in Sweden; that everyone is a winner no matter if you placed first or last. If we are speaking strictly gear wise nothing separates my 2000 rating shaman from the best rated shaman on the battlegroup.
What I'm wonder is if people agree with me, make the PvP gear for honor available for everyone but at least restrict the Tyrannical weapons and tier gear to certain ratings, or is the current system better where everyone can get the best gear while only restricting certain meta gems and enchants to the "elite" players.?
