    Default PLEASE bring in Arena Trion!

    It would add more fun to the game! Make it balanced in awards in comparison to the WF gear. 2v2, 3v3, 5v5, and a 8v8 would be so fun!

    I disagree if they kept the awards alike the WF. Maybe some different graphics. It would add more diversity to the game and an overall good feeling for us pvp nuts! It can be implemented where those who like WF can stick to that due to the gear being equal. THOSE who wanna really test the skill of a handful of friends will do arena. I beg for arena!

    I agree 100%, if you want to keep any hardcore pvp demographic you may have, you need to put in some form of competitive pvp.

    Just don't base gear off of it.
    Maybe titles, or something vanity, just not gear.


    And guess what, if you don't like arenas, you don't have to do arenas!

    I hated arenas in WoW... If they do bring them, hope they do a MUCH better job.

    The souls aren't balanced enough for arenas.

    The arena will just be full of clerics and no one dying...or the occasional mage and pocket healer(s). Arena is what kills the balance of an MMO...as it is it's very difficult to balance everything in this game!

    as someone who enjoyed wows arena alot, Id do it for absolutely nothing but it would be cool to get it ranked so you don't just squash noobs all day.

    Trion's stated before that there will not be arenas in this game.

    And I agree with it tbh. Deathmatches in MMOs are won in the metagame. Variables such as objectives create the better gameplay experience.
    This is why we can't have nice things.

    When you present a way to balance 2vs2 fights in a manner that does not interfere with the rest of the game, I'll listen.

    Gods no, Arenas ruined WoW PvP.

    It puts too much of a focus on balance issues that aren't as much of a problem in larger groups of people.

    When dealing with, say, 5v5, you have to balance to make sure this group of 5 is not inherently more powerful than this group of 5. It's terrible and never-ending, and ruins PvP balance.

    I did a bunch of things and a bunch of stuff; now I'm just a casual player.

    Arenas are fun. Arenas with all the soul combos of RIFT would be horrific to balance and very unfun.

    they also stated there would never be add-ons. their track record for maintaining truthful statements is very suspect

    Arena causes far too much balance problems. Small scale pvp is impossible to balance without screwing over pve.
