    There is nothing more energetic and adrenaline-pumping than to watch the "best" WoW PvP'ers hit "TAB" on their keyboard.

    e-sports via MMO is an absolute joke and an embarrassment to the entire genre. Moreover, it has set the worst trend in the MMO: arenas, battlegrounds, warzones, or whatever else you want to call them...

    MMOs need to go back to virtual worlds...not virtual redundancy.

    Obviously you haven't played WoW arena. TABing is not an option and there are countless abilities you have to take into account. Classes are grosly imbalanced but players on highest level play with strongest classes anyway.

    Everyone is saying PvP needs to be revitalized but noone has a solution where everyone has a fair chance. It's easier said then done.

    WoW is at least trying.
