That is absolutely not true. Reason why is pvp in this game so dead is absence of motivation to play and issues with matchmaking. When you are newbie and you are trying free tournaments for first few times, you get facerolled by teams playing them for some time and it not get better, because when losing 100 to 500, you are not learning anything. Why these team plays free and dont go to paids? Because they get facerolled there by few teams playing them repeatedly on a daily basis. Again, if you get destroyed with score under 300, you are not learning anything.

Reason why cs is fine without any ranking system is same as you argued for wow. Huge fanbase and really active scene.
You cant get this in almost dead game. Rating system is only thing that can pour new players into pvp and shield them from veteran teams.

Custom arenas dont solve anything, because there are not enough people to use them at their max potential at this time and, in my opinion, you dont get to increase your skill level by playing with teams in custom arenas. You can only play with your friends, which they are usually at similiar skill level, and then maybe few matches with unknown team to you, which destroy you easily until it stops entertaining them or the other way around. Anyway, planning matches is much more difficult and time consuming when compared to automated tournament system. Also it will not bring new players into game.

As I see it, only thing that can save this game is matchmaking/rating system, spectator mode and only then, after all this is implemented, custom arenas.

I think you dont understand meaning of Hotjoin. It is not supposed to be balanced or competetive, it is made for testing builds and warming up before tournament matches. But still, this game is pretty much dead if arenanet dont come with some miracle patch very soon.

Plz if you dont know how Evasive Arcana was used at its best dont post, the nerf had hit like a truck Staff eles not D/D lol
About going somewhere else i'm going to do it, no worries, cya on next skill update.
You sound like you played elementalist a lot (thief or ranger? both are highly skillbased classes). Staff have more viable builds without 30 arcana so wipe your tears and go look for actually useful builds.

At least on Diablo 3 they are buffing unused skill, not the opposite
Elementalists are pretty much fine right now. They fixed most annoying bugs and little nerfed D/D with 30 arcana so no biggie. Cry somewhere else.
