    S2 seems like it's going to be substantially better. Instant queue bgs and the reputation pvp gear has made arenas way more accessible than season 1. Also, we've collectively realized how much we suck and should just play together instead of pushing rating.

    ugh arena rogue such a different mindset, skirmishing is helping a lot. it's hard to get used to being control/cc instead of primarily dps. also hard to coordinate, but even solo skirmishing is helping. i have too many fucking buttons tho, wayyyy too many buttons

    It's pretty clear what the meta is tilting towards in TBC arenas: The ability to sustain easy (aka instant) damage.

    Warriors are becoming the dominant DPS class because their ability to just faceroll out instant cast damage, and cut heals in half while doing it, is unparalleled. Warlocks and rogues are right wth them, although both suffer in 5s compared to a warrior.

    Hunters (easy to los), casters/healers that have to channel, and melees for whom the concept of "melee range" isn't a joke like it is for warriors and rogues, struggle. Even mages, who are often regarded as an overpowered class, are 6th, 6th, and 5th in ladder representation, despite their popularity.

    And that is why rogues are one of the fundamental arena classes (at least in 2s and 3s). You make it so all these other classes can actually hit people. That's your main job. Providing a window for your groupmates to do things. It's why I wanted you to play one - so that you can facilitate double DPS and triple DPS groups and our arena comps don't revolve as strongly around our 1 priest. But rogues are definitely facilitators like you said.

    I'm having a blast at arenas - if I get better at not letting Chowsky tilt me, it should be a very enjoyable season.

    My bad.

    We are still terrible. Trynd and I got 1620 in 2s, which is my highest.

    Jax wisely dumped us and he is 1900s with shadowplay

    1600's is probably still rly good. In chess the best players get up to 2900, but being 1700 rated is in the top 12%. The median is around 1100.

    Arena participation has been too low for Gladiator to be anything close to realistic for most of us. The relatively small number of people playing them are already the more dedicated and skilled pvp'ers, and being in the top 0.5% of that group is going to be borderline impossible. Even being in the top half is pretty good. Many of the active Reforged pvp'ers from Classic, for example, won't even touch them.

    We will see if the participation goes up during s2. Having placement matches take you to 1500 rather than 1000 should help (sorry gents, we are still shitters lololol) But, ultimately, I'm not sure the BG'ers, casuals and PvE'ers want to foot in arenas to get dunked on by gladiator calibre metasluts when the gear is worthless to them and takes forever to get. But who knows.

    Even if that's true, they can still be fun. We just have to temper our expectations.
