Going for the highest rank means you need to compete with people who do nothing else but PvP up to 16 hours per day, and to most players that is just not possible. This isn't about skill, any idiot can make more honor points in 16 hours than the world's best PvP player in 4 hours. The one skill that helps in PvP is organization. Going to a battleground in a "premade" group, using voice chat, is the best way to collect honor points.In the Burning Crusade expansion, many positive changes to PvP have already been announced. It seems that Blizzard has realized the potential of battlegrounds as "casual" PvP entertainment for the masses, and is changing the honor reward system accordingly. The relative rank system will disappear, and wow gold people just collect honor points like they collect experience points or faction reputation points, in a cumulative manner. Then these honor points can be spent, like a currency, to buy PvP rewards. Thus finally 4 evenings of 4 hours PvP give the identical reward than one day of 16 hours, which makes PvP a lot more interesting to the majority of players.All in all, PvP is bound to improve further with the expansion. Certainly you don't want to be half on your way to some PvP honor rank when the system is abandoned. It isn't clear at all whether and how your current honor rank is transformed into the new honor points, it is quite possible that you just lose all.
