Just wondering... are any plans in the works in terms of offering rewards for arena victories? You know, the best thing I loved about WoW was the battlegrounds... it was always populated and easy to get in one... but here on EQ2? It's dead. Is it the content? Hmm... I dunno, CTF is pretty fun, and lots of arenas to choose from. So why then are EQ2 arenas so underpopulated? I'm thinking it's a lack of motivation, because you get no rewards for doing it. What needs to happen is there needs to be:A: pvp item / money / exp for arenas winsB: easier access to arenas from any town (like battlemasters spread throughout the cities)C: more variety of arena types (CTF, etc.)Thoughts?

NO invis or stealth allowed.</p><p>We need more than what the arena has ot offer and I'ms ure there are tons of games worth while.</p>
