You forgot to mention 2 of the biggest reasons why players are not going for arenas:
I - Stagger of Warrior and Archer - this issue wasn't supposed to even exist in this game, even in KTera the stagger of Warrior in def. stance and Archer don't work like it does here. If a archer or a warrior decide to stagger you it get to a point that you can't even use any kind of dodge what so ever, is just comical. Beyond absurd such a mechanic to be allowed in any kind of PvP scenario of a game that want respect.
II - Resurrection during matches - Do I really need to say something about it? When arenas was first announced one of the mentioned rules was: Resurrection of players doesn't work, who die will remain dead, but then in practice this is not true. What can be more frustrating than the enemy that you just took a lot of skill and team work to kill, get up alive? This is not just unfair but is lack of respect with the player base. Is not fun, is not skill or gear based, is nothing but a huge turnoff about 3x3.
I'm a really hardcore PvP, and I love Tera's combat system but I must say that the PvP engines in this game make me want to stick needles in my eyes.
Please, FIX the stagger nonsense and the resurrection imbecility before the arenas get as empty and not used as was the 15x15 raid BG.
