What is wrong with controlled competition?
As I already said, it fractures the community. It also goes against the spirit of RvR - a realm war. DAoC has never been about arena combat. The one thing that made DAoC so successful over so many years was that it is very good about building a community. You do not get that with arenas and random instanced 8vs8 action.
Also what would be controleld about that? The moment the first RR5 group gets matched with the rr10 group would see a lot of complaints. So where does it end? A ladder? Leagues? How much of DAoC would be left?
Also, again, how many people would do an RvR morde that does not give RPs? I still doubt that there would be a lot of those.
Finally the technical details are not easy. The currently used code of DAoC does not support instances but an arena would need to be instanmced or else it is utterly useless (you do not get RPs but all the 8-mans run in a tiny zone and constantly add each other?).
So, well, a quite complicated solution that goes against everything that made DAoC great with questionable rate of success...
