The reason I  froze my sub in april 2012 is because I hit a wall in pvp and there was no way I could access the gear I wanted at my rating. I heard the requirement is being cancelled in the next major patch or atleast that's what I think I heard. The wording seemed fuzzy. Can anyone confirm this?

No idea what you're talking about, but each gear tier goes down in currency requirement (arena points to honor points, ect) each new Season.

Mists of Pandaria launched after you quit, so you should definitely resub and check it out.

What I meant was back in the day you had to have a rating of 2200 in 3v3 to have access to the best gdar regardless of how currency you had amassed.

Your best bet is reading through this:

They're about to make changes to the way the points and gear to rating system works and one of the reasons seems to be to get over that exact hurdle you've explained.

Oh and they removed that rating requirement a while ago if I remember rightly. Everyone can pretty much get the same quality of gear but the better players will (currently in 5.1) still get it sooner. There's also elite sets which are just a recolour and have the same stats so they're really only for e-peen flaunting.

Thank for clearing that up for me. I think the best players should be able to distinguish themselves but only cosmetically. If I have can grab the same stats as them at a much slower pace then I'm OK with that.
