Why are the pvp activities so hidden away?

There is so much PVP stuff to do and yet you have to jumps trough so many hoops to get them. I wonder what made them that way. Wouldn't it be better if there was a button to queue from the pvp panel and get some reward track progress from them and some kind of leader board like the races.
Kegbrawl, Sanctum sprint the festival arenas all hidden away so much that people don't even know that they exist.
Also why aren't there griffon races in the pvp lobby?
The free for all arena is cool but why isn't there a place in the lobby where you can pick duels with people? The FFA is too small for that and wvw is restricted by the server structure.

    PSA: There is a Hunger Games/Battle Royale in GW2 called Southsun Survival.

    It's a good question, maybe PvP servers don't connect freely with the activity servers and that's what prevent them from copy pasting the activities NPC in lion arch in the PvP lobby. Maybe PvP servers can't open maps wide enough for an enjoyable race experience.

    Woah. That's actually a pretty good subject. The PvP lobby is lacking a lot of features.

    Get those races in.

    Get those advebtures and activities in.

    This is all competitive, people must have a break from ranked and Chill tossing kegs, even if they're waiting for ranked.

    PvP Lobby should be filled with PvP activities, not just Conquest.

    Never looked at it this way, but people may actually do those activities if they were in the pvp area. Go figure.

    Places where pleasure lie always remain hidden.

    The problem here is, Arenanet doesn't seem to view activities as PvP.
    The daily for activities is part of the PvE dailies.

    That is weird cause some use PvP UI. There are some i don't think need the UI like the Festival JPs, but then again that might be a way to resurrect JPs since they don't do them in PVE anymore and getting them as off limits separate map might do the trick.
