What happens when well-spoken and otherwise smart raiders get all worked up over S3 gear? You get armchair designers devising ways to fix arena loot distribution from the perspective of sour, disgruntled raiders with a barely hidden agenda of denying other people loot they didn’t catass for through BT.
Never mind that raiders get a disproportionate amount of development time spent on churning out new content they gobble up, or that they get access to the top of the top gear 4-5 months before arena. Never mind that currently competitive PvPers still have to run PvE content to get part of their kit. People who aren’t even participating in arena, and by their own account are a dying breed don’t want you to earn S3 gear. They will throw the tired old “lose 10 games a week” tirade like it were meaningful in any way, then come up with a theorycrafted model of gear progression for arena, a game they don’t participate in any relevant manner (if at all), and explain to you that competitive arena should now go through such and such ratings before they can upgrade their gear, trying to force the broken loot distribution system of their activity of choice, raiding, upon PvP.
Well, like they’ve always told the non-raiders, if you don’t raid or aren’t level 70 you can’t have a meaningful point of view on the matter. Let’s turn this around, then.
Are you a raider with some great ideas how to “fix” PvP gear distribution? Give us the highest rating you have achieved, together with season and bracket this happened in. If you believe S3 gear should require a rating of 1750+, show us that you have reached that rating yourself and that you actually are a stakeholder and know from personal experience what it takes to get there. Obviously buying a spot in a top rated team doesn’t count.
If you can’t do that, you aren’t a stakeholder, and, no disrespect meant, you have neither the experience nor the mindset to talk about PvP loot distribution “fixing” with any kind of credibility, no matter how good your PvE opinions are. In fact, you perfectly fit the stereotype stating that the only people who get worked up over arena gear are raiders with lousy arena ratings (or even none). Just suck it up and turn your creative energies into suggestion to make raiding an interesting proposition again.
