    Default arena 2v2, 3v3,5v5?

    Is there ever going to be a arena type game type like in WoW?

    I really hope so. There is NO end game pvp. I don't understand how it would ruin pvp, I never played WoW.

    Can someone please tell me how it would "ruin" the game?

    Arenas are just glorified multiplayer duels. You want some duels set up a place and time with a group of the opposite faction. Then set the rules, and enjoy. It is the same as an arena.

    Oh and lol at the no end game pvp when there are 8 prestige ranks to get through.

    The main reason I would say no to arenas is that I would prefer that any resources used for PvP would be put into world RvR development . Simply because I would like to see real world PvP,

    Arena's have already been tried and even the developer admits they were a huge mistake but they couldn't figure out how to get rid of them once they were in game.

    If someone has come up with a means of balancing around 2v2 without it impacting the rest of the game then I'd like to hear how.

    Until then, I'd be against small scale arenas.

    You mean grind through. It takes ZERO skill to get rank 8, just a dedication to afk in warfronts for weeks. Hardly worthy to be called "end game PvP".

    arenas, like everything in WOW, were good as they put them in to begin with, then they tried to tweak and change things so it just went to crap.

    Only if there was a guarantee that pve would never feel the effects of balancing for arenas. And as long as it didn't offer gear upgrades different from what you can get in WFs. Gear progression simply doesn't fit in a competitive ladder system.

    Overall though I hope Rift never has arenas.

    Hopefully not, there's no need in Rift for small team based combat. In fact, MMOs are inherently the opposite of what arenas represent.

    Ironically, the arena in wow was ultimately responsible for me leaving wow. Was pretty bored with wow but I liked to solo pvp on my dk...until Blizzard decided that dks need a survivability nerfs because of arena.

    And the blizzardian philosophy of "pvp is not balanced around duels or 2v2" suddenly turned into "pvp is not balanced around duels or 2v2...but you'll get nerfs to solo pvp performance anyway because your *** is OP in 3v3"

    Suddenly my dk was the worst class for solo pvp, along shamans and I left wow since the last thing that kept me interested, was taken away.

    **** THE ARENA !!! To hell with it !!!
