Now that the expansion is far enough along, arena seasons started and people are finally 85. Is cata pvp living up to what we first thought it would?

From a limited perspective right now I did my first games of 2's today. I like the new conquest point system, getting your points until you cap is pretty awesome. I hated getting my 10 games in and then waiting and waiting until next tuesday to grab the next piece.

Arena does seem slower. I don't see people getting instagibbed beyond the fact they have 0 resil. Now there are the few problem classes, IE: feral, frostmage and warrior but thats besides the point.

Gearing up seems a lot more streamlined and much smoother. The old system was rather rigid, for some reason it seems more aesthetically pleasing to see I need to grind just 2200 honor and not 68,000 for my gear.

World pvp is back, at least on my server. I have yet to find a time when doing my TH dailies or TB dailies to run into a fight.

All in all I'm pretty satisified with the way pvp is at right now. I have my gripes about certain classes, but in general the system seems to be in a much better place. Various patches will bring us to a point where things seem normal again and certain classes/abilities get toned down.

Thoughts? Opinions? Points of view? Do share!

someone turned on pvp at the highlands beach during the initial leveling rushes. so many skeletons and so much QQ about people trying to level.

it was epic.

Also they aren't pixels, they're polygons, any **** you watch on your PC is pixels, and besides, real women are just cells.

Is nice to see some solid LW pieces right off the bat although I do wish the last 25 points of LW had some non-pvp stuff too - feel like I'm cheating going into heroics as a tank with partial PvP gear set on. >_<

The retribution best in slot gear (pre-raid) is the blue honor set due to the enormous value of strength as stat so....

The LW pieces are completely irrelevant now though, considering that you can get one PvP piece every 5 hours from Tol Barad.
