The Colosseum

Blizzard have announced that arena will no longer be the main feature of pvp at level 80.
Whilst still available for level 80 characters, it will behave in a similar fashion to current
battlegrounds with honor being awarded instead of arena points.

Upon reaching level 80, a new pvp feature is provided. Titled "The Colosseum" and allows for teams of 5v5, 10v10 and 20v20 to play competitive battles against each other. These teams may contain players from any of the servers in a battlegroup.

A new UI feature is also provided, similar to the current looking for group interface but for the creation of colosseum teams and also works across servers (but within a single battlegroup). Team chat channels are also provided, allowing communication between members of a particular team even across servers.

Teams may also arrange practice matches against each other that does not affect their rating within the colosseum. Two rating systems are provided within the colosseum. The global colosseum is ranked in a similar fashion to the level 70 arena system, with wins and losses increasing and decreasing a teams rating. With colosseum points being awarded each week based on a teams final rating.

The second rating system includes a colosseum league, a league begins at the start of each month and ends at the end of the month. Teams may rise and fall through the divisions only through finishing in the top two positions of the league and they must also play each other team in a division at least twice. More details on the Colosseum league will be announced closer to the release of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion.

The mailing system will also be expanded to allow mails to be sent to characters on other servers. However items and money can only be mailed to the same server.

Colosseum part sounds ok'ish, apart from the thing with teams can contain players from different servers.
Same goes for the UI.
