    so PvP players with 2.400 rating get gear that is equal to mythic raid gear. not sure if this threshold is too low honestly... we will know the moment PvE players start complaining.
    How is that too low? 2400 is like the top 1-2% of pvp players. Getting 2400 is a LOT harder than executing your rotation and standing out of the fire.

    Don't even know why so many are concerned someone else might get too much gear playing normally when everyone and their mom sells boosts nowadays.

    You sort of have to let some leeway when it comes to the RPG aspect of the game in PvP if you want it be competitive.
    Getting rating isnt character progression, its a measure how much you have played arena trough out that season and how far you have gotten and its more of a rating of your skill to manage your characters ability with your team to defeat the enemy team....
    And in prestige they are removing the fact that when you reset you dont lose your talents so its basically a passive grind that you and your grandmother can get eventually which is really boring.

    Hopefully every dragonslayer out there is happy for a fact that they removed a part of the game which was important for many players who wanted to progress their characters trough PvP! And if you say pvp was a way of getting easy gear for "raids" that there were too many "noobs" playing "Our hard dragon npc encounter", then dont be on a group that has a leader who invites people with full pvp gear, simple as.

    I used to know these 2 people that played close to 1000 arenas every season and didn't surpass 1600 rating.

    It's not a measure of how much you've played.

    I think casuals fail to realize that you can actually be good at the game, and being good gets you gear -> character progression.

    you do realize you need to maintain 2.4k cr + keep on winning at least once a week, the way boosting works, they boost you once and then player is on his own, so if he sux, he will get 1 piece of gear from booster and then when he plays on his own he will keep on losing games. maybe he gets 1-2 wins but my guess he will drop to 2.1k or lower.

    Edit: getting 2.4k is like glad range atm or very close to it, so ya to me it is more than fair that ppl @ glad range are getting mythic ilvl gear, while mythic gear is still better of due to set bonuses, JC sockets, trinkets, etc

    You forgot pve. Even just a HC raid boost will net you 3-5 items at 670-680 when you also use tokens and it takes just a hour of time investment, max 2h if they suck.

    To realise that they would first have to admit to themselves and the rest of the community that they are not actually good at the game. That's where the core issue lies.
