BG’sJanuary 21, 2010
In Vanilla WoW, BG’s were THE big form of PvP in the world, as Alterac Valley battles could take days to complete. They got toned down a bit in Burning Crusade to cater more to the people who want their marks and then get out. But in Wrath of the Lich King, battlegrounds were shortened to such an extent that you would literally go in, pitter around for about ten minutes then it’d be over.
I think battlegrounds have fallen far from their former glory. I mean, I don’t even really see people DOING battlegrounds anymore. I mean, you can get better gear just from PvEing or arena’ing without any kind of skill at all. When BG queues are up to five to ten minutes per queue, you know there’s something wrong.
So my opinion, Blizzard. Take it back to the Vanilla WoW days of epic battles fought back and forth on the Fields of Strife. The wars were massive and you felt like you were actually doing something instead of just pressing one area and defending another. Tactics were used instead of this aimless meandering people are doing today.
