First post ever.
Just wanted to share my feelings on current state of PvP.
I am a former TBC player, played a lot in PVE and loved arenas as well, it was around 15 years ago now. I wanted to feel the same, and it’s the case (even if I can’t say that the level have stepped up).
But there is a problem : honor grinding.
I am pretty sure everybody agree on the fact that’s it’s really painful (and I am alliance side).
So painful that many of our shadowland’s players had quit pvp.
So painful that all of our raiders that just wanted to play pvp as casual had quit as well.
So painful that it seems impossible to play an alt in pvp.
I am ok with horde vs horde (which I find totally normal due to queue time, even if I can’t say that I am a bit woried by population balance on TBC).
I am also OK with no premade (whish I find totally normal for people that are solo queuing even if I used to premade every time I had honnor to do).
I am also pretty sure that for the majority play BGs just to reach pvp gear in order to play arenas, and it just ask too much time.
Even the youngest player back burning crusade that had around 15 yo back that days now are 29-30 yo. The majority have responsibility IRL (work, girlfriend/boyfriend, childs etc.).
We don’t have enough time to invest in honor grinding as it is right now.
PS : honor as it was during the tbcc prepatch was ok…
That’s my personnal feelings, what you guys are thinking ?
