Fuck WoW I quit. They should have kept the 1800 weapon requirement and all the other rating requirements and give alliance double honor for BGs until the pop balances. But they won't because blizzard are faggots and too many people suck at arena...yeah I said it Phone Post

You use to complain about not being able to get weapons from pvping...that you had to do lame raids.

And now that they addressed it people are still whining,,,maybe it is time to quit!

I was wrong to complain. Grinding arena on my lock last season was THE MOST fun and challenging thing I did in WoW Phone Post
