For folks such as myself that belonged to the melee duel subculture in D2, I was really saddened to see that dueling has apparently been killed in D3. I haven't heard any specifics as of yet, but the impression I'm getting is that Blizzard wants to create an E-sport arena style team PvP.........which I'm really just not diggin.
Hopefully more people will start making a fuss about wanting 1v1 and Blizz will hear us....however, I really haven't heard too many people bitchin about it. I've heard more folks complaining about no PK'ing.
1v1 ftw, and what i would LOVE to see is class master arenas as well beside mix 1v1 there should be inside class pvp (no problems with balancing imo, just skill)
It might be not fun if x class is getting ass kicked in all arenas by other classes without fun, if you fight the same class, fun is much higher , and there could be class ratings which would indicate what rating dh i have and so on instead of XX class being on top because of no ballance etc..
For now they should focus to get balance right. Rather have a solid 4 vs 4 then a broken pvp with more alternatives.
I agree with you, but I think you have your hopes way up. Jay Wilson has stated that there will be no balancing around PvP. Everything is being balanced from a PvE perspective. Unless they decided to change that.
Also, I would love to see a dueling option. Maybe it won't be available for ranked matches, but maybe as a practice match option?

forget any balance wow friends, this aint azeroth no mo, so say hello to smoke screen and cheer those lucky bastards with godly rolled 4pcs Nat Wrath set. They NEVER did anything in terms of pvp balance in history of diablo and its the only way it can be continued. PvP was always and should be just a way to use game mechanics as they are to kill others as they are so unbalance ftw but u shouldnt aproach it this way as there is no something like balance in diablo pvp. If something is op you should grab it as it last>>>>NAt Wrath
but it gonna be huge fun anyway cause there is no shit like all people wearing same "pvpfkinset" with boring stats and stupid cc clock mechanics, dr inter class cds etc "balance"...if something is op in your eyes, take it asap.
good luck all ^^ and shall all make a magic wish for all modes from 1v1 to 4v4 and also dm free for all 8 players ^^ etc
