The newest season of Arena gear can only be purchased if you meet the requirements with your 3 or 5 player team rating. Rating requirements from 2 player teams can still be used to purchase the previous season of gear.

And this:
Battleground experience has arrived!
Players will now be awarded experience for completing objectives and actions that yield honor in Battlegrounds (honorable kills not included).
Players who do not wish to gain experience through PvP can visit Behsten in Stormwind or Slahtz in Orgrimmar - both located near the Battlemasters in either city - and turn off all experience accumulation for the cost of 10 gold.
Disabling experience gains will prevent a player from gaining experience through any means available in the game.
Players with experience gains turned off who compete in Battlegrounds will face off only against other players with experience gains turned off.
Behsten and Slahtz can reinstate experience gains for players, for a 10 gold fee of course. Any experience that would've been accumulated if experience gains were not turned off cannot be recovered.
Twinks r legal thing? Silly, but good that the'll have their own bgs now.

Oh noes, the morons who think that their four button mashing is skill might have a challenge.

The 2v2 change seems retarded, but then I haven't played in over two months, so I'm just assuming they can't find a balanced rating for 2v2 due to class inbalance and much higher ratings in that bracket.

Edit: After much quiet contemplation, rogues now possess the ability to learn how to use one-handed axes.

Win.

Not entirely unlike, say, Val'anyr, which can only be obtained in 25-man version of Ulduar.

Whether you want to PvP or PvE, if you want to have the best loot, bring moar people.

well 2v2 have never really been balanced and even Blizz said it basically never will be back in the TBC days.

and the 2v2 balance isnt any better now.

im not saying that 3v3 or 5v5 is balanced but its not as bad as 2v2 (imo).

It was always balanced, if you know the secret to it:

"After further consideration, and after hearing from many players, we are going to change how we approach the 2 vs. 2 arena bracket in Arena Season 7. We still think the 3 vs. 3 and 5 vs. 5 brackets will ultimately offer the best play experience, especially for very competitive gamers for whom game class balance issues are most noticeable. However, we recognize that many players just prefer to play in the 2 vs. 2 bracket and will miss the chance to earn the current season's gear. Therefore, we are going to still allow the 2 vs. 2 bracket to grant access to the current season of gear with three important exceptions: the current season's weapons will not be available for purchase, the current season’s shoulder armor will not be available for purchase, and players will not qualify for the Gladiator title/rewards unless you earn the appropriate rating in the 3 vs. 3 or 5 vs. 5 bracket. We look forward to the changes in the next major content patch and hope to have a great next Arena Season. "
