Arenas and grinding for rewardsI stopped playing arenas on my PVP character, Plum. It's not that I hate them, it's that I get bored in the queues. Battlegrounds are actually more fun for me, because healing large groups tends to give more bang for your PVP buck. It's easier to get away with and it consistently makes a major difference in whether you win or lose.
I think some players like Arenas because they are quick, easy to organize (relative to a BG), often have fast queues, and / or they just enjoy the “purity” (for want of a better word) of just trying to kill the other team without having to worry about flags, reinforcements, bad players not contributing to the war effort, etc. However, a lot of players who may not really like Arenas get drawn into them in order to procure the best PvP gear. This second issue is something we’d like to fix, but we need to develop a way to reward good gear through BGs that isn’t based on endless grinding. (Source)
And healing bg's is freaking fun.
So the idea that battlegrounds are under examination for these changes thrills me. As I've said before, I like battlegrounds, and I'd like for them to become popular again.
