MMR issues hotfix incoming
Blizzard Community Representative Daxxarri responded to player concerns about gaining 0 points of Current Rating following wins in arena:
We recently implemented a hotfix to address a bug that allowed Personal Ratings to exceed Matchmaking Rating. As a result, some players may notice that they do not gain or lose Personal Rating in the wake of a match. As more matches are played, these ratings will normalize and converge to the correct rating, and Personal Rating will then rise or drop accordingly.
In the meantime, we will continue to monitor the situation and make further adjustments if necessary.

Patch 5.4 Arena Update: Cross-Realm Arenas, No Premade Teams Needed
2013/07/01 at 11:08 AM
As revealed at the
Fansite Dev Roundtable
on Friday, some big changes are coming to arenas in 5.4. The team requirement is lifted, and you can compete with cross-realm friends!
<div class="detail"><p>Big changes are coming to World of Warcraft’s Arenas that will make participating more convenient and competitive than ever before, and some of those changes may begin appearing on the PTR very soon.</p></br>
<p>Today, competition is limited to the realms within your Battlegroup, and your ability to participate in the Arena system requires having a static team with friends on the same realm.
