    I imagine i can't be alone in this, but I was wondering if there was anyone else making these types of sounds on the wow forums. I briefly checked if there anything on the topic but as far as i could see there wasn't. I was just wondering the likelihood of blizzard reinstating a rated arena system for twink brackets. thoughts?

    I highly doubt this. If it were to happen, BFa would make sense to reintroduce it since it’s a pvp expansion. The dynamic behind the rating at lower levels was because blizzard just co tinier rated from TBC upwards and when people whined that low level players could rock there titles blizzard hit capped rating at end game. To get rating at 70 back blizzard would have to have a reason to reimplement it. Which I can’t even find a reason for them to.

    No hope for it, but it would have been nice :)
    To go X-0 in rated felt so much more fun than to do so in skirmishes

    why on earth would you want a 79s pound fest?
    It would be embarrassing and frustrating for a 70 and shit boring for a 79.
    If we are going to dream then how about introducing various honor talents through out the brackets!?

    If i remember correctly you could not que up as 79, 84 or 89.
    The one that had to que you up had to be a 70, 80 or 85.
    But that was back when arena teams was a thing.

    So you had to have atleast 1 at the minimum level.

    Sort of, you could only make and join a team at 70. Once you were in the team you could level to 74(brackets at the time, x0-x4, x5-x9)
    Don't get me wrong I would love it to go back the way it was but its just not going to happen

    That's probably never gonna happen again, and here's why.

    The rated brackets for 2v2, 3v3 etc. weren't seperate when it came to the ladder. This is a huge issue when it comes to 3v3 specifically, because that bracket hands out titles. Level 70's, 80's etc. could therefore achieve glad, and even rank one titles, without having to face the actual glads and r1's of endgame players. It also meant that people who did play endgame could get titles robbed without even having the possibility to face the respective team(s). It basically made for overall bad pvp-design for multiple reasons.
    People could farm "bads" in the twink brackets, then level to max level and be like "yo I'm rank one lul" etc. It had to be removed.

    The only way I can see them re-implementing the ranked system for lowe rlevels is to make the ladders seperate, and hand out different titles/rewards for the lower brackets, but even then, that's something "more" they'd have to manage for a particularly low population of the game. Realistically, it's just not going to happen.

    Or they could've disabled rewards for low level players. Like they had already done before. Titles weren't obtainable anymore. They put level requirements on the tabards and cloaks. They could've done the same for both achievements and weapon enchants.

    Damn that was difficult. Didn't have to kill the brackets after all.

    Probably fairly harder than you think. Way easier to remove it all together. Their reward system is most likely automated, which means they'd have to tweak a lot of things just for lower levels to have rated arena. There are also other rewards than titles that has to be tweaked and receive level caps etc. in order for lower levels not having any rewards whatsoever.

    Did you read my post or?

    They already did that for the majority of rewards you could once obtain. If you leveled your character (including boost) your rating would reset so that wasn't an issue either. The only rewards that remained were arena achievements (titles were already disabled) and weapon enchants.

    They could've done the exact same thing with those but they chose to delete it completely for no real reason other than convenience. It's a theme for Blizzard to take convenient solutions rather than accurate ones and it has made some areas of the game decidedly worse than they used to be.

    This would be a terrible idea, if you cant get it endgame you dont deserve to have it end of story

    How I read it was OP is not asking for rewards or titles just a rated ladder. I think it's a great idea but it just won't happen.

    Blizzard are not interested in keeping minority groups happy and they are definitely not going to separate a rated arena into 70, 80, etc and normal arena/BG into 79, 89 scaling.

    edit: and if you think all titles/achieves earned at end game are 'deserved' you are kidding yourself.

    Yes I read your post. The problem is still that because they tweaked things for one segment with other criterias, doesn't necessarily mean they can copy paste it over. They probably looked at that previous solution and made up a time/cost and overall value for implementing such a solution again to another segment. They probably came to the conclusion that it wasn't worth doing, and therefore chose to go with the solution to just disable it all together. Twinks are a minority after all, and that's just how it is.

    Why you so salty 'Anonymous' ?
    I don't play end game so my arena achievements do not include titles, only exception was arena master and I was just short of that in 5s.
    My best friend however dose and he made most of his gold in WoD selling carries and achieves.

    Did you buy yours not realizing it was common practice?

    If however you are glad than iam surprised you are not making a fortune doing the same thing yourself.......

    lol weird...
