#1 - 2013/03/18 04:39:00 PMRight, as the title reads, I cant find a single argument out there against implementing 1v1 arena, other than added development time for developing a system that doesnt let people change spec while in arena queue.
How this would work, you queue up for 1v1 arena, you can ONLY meet people of your spec against you, to clarify even more, if you queue up as a windwalker monk, you will only meet other windwalker monks. How is this not balanced?
All windwalker monks have access to exact same sets of skills as you do, I ask yet again, how is this not balanced? ><
As for regarding healers/tanks, either ban those specs from 1v1 arena altogether to stop the complaining from people not being able to kill their opponent (lets say holy paladin vs holy paladin, or prot warrior vs prot warrior) OR, implement a 100-200% DMG buff for those specs in 1v1 arena. If it's too hard to code it into the current arena system, make two separate arena systems and disable the client from being able to queue for both simultaneously.
While it is true that the game is an MMO (and apparently most people think that playing with others 24/7 is a part of your MMO experience, wich I personally think is bogus, noone wants to hang out with people all the time), either make 1v1 not reward gear, only rating, or add other incentives to do 2v2 3v3 5v5 aswell. (although 1v1 as suggested earlier on would be the most balanced setting, thus making it unlogical to not have it give any actual rewards, such as gladiator titles/mounts/gear/etc)
People have been asking for 1v1 dueling grounds for years, wai cant we have the nice things :(
I'll try to monitor this thread for a while, if anyone comes with a good argument to not add 1v1 arenas to the game, other than ''wow is a complex game, adding new system is hard for developers'' I'll give up and keep on grinding my teeth playing with people I don't even like.
Keep in mind, as you discuss this topic, that this suggestion is entirely for Specialization based 1v1 arenas/dueling grounds, not just random 1v1 arena where you meet other classes/specs.
^ serves as TLDR.
