Patch 4.1 Dungeon Call To Arms Interface/Mechanics
A lot of people still wonder how the dungeon Call to Arms works and I hopped on PTRs to check it out.








Rated Battlegrounds VS. The Blues
It looks like the lack of blue posts lately is because the blues have been spending most of their time training in PvP!

I know a lot of you had fun a couple weeks back when we logged on to the PTRs and ran ZA & ZG with you. Well, we're coming back! This time however rather than fighting alongside you we're going to be duking it out on the fields of honor, better known as Rated Battlegrounds!

We're going to be online tomorrow, 4/12/2011, at 4:30pm PST.

To participate you'll need to roll Horde characters (we flipped a coin) and form teams on the Broxigar PTR realm. The reason we're specifying a faction is because this is actually a big test of our experimental same-faction rated battlegrounds.

Hope to see you online, I'm sure this'll be a blast!

Patch 4.1 - New Game Master/Support Interface
The support interface gets a redesign in the next patch, you should be able to find what you're looking for easily now!



Comics
Dark Legacy Comics #283 and Teh Gladiators #226 + #227 are out!

    Love the new look GM support

    Question is for the CTA's, can you only get the satchel 7 times in a week? "You may recieve this award 7 more times this week"

    I think players will hold off doing the Random if they cant get a chance at satchel.

    I don't know about your server, we are always waiting for DPS to join the queue... I mean.. waiting for DPS to click the "ready" button.

    New GM/Support looks good and more user friendly than the old version...not that the old version was overly complicated

    At least Blizzard were honest, and in none of the example screenshots did they show DPS as getting the satchel (Hey, I'm Prot/Holy, I feel for you guys, doesn't mean its not funny as hell though)

    Guess why - DPS waits around 30-45 minutes for an invite - waiting - waiting - waiting - doing booring dailys - more waiting ... doing ah ... eek call of nature - i have to pee - fast ... coming back to screen to see "you are removed from the queue because you dind not respond bla bla bla ..."

    actually people doing this makes queues longer. So you're partly to blame.

    Pretty sure that is just relating to the VP reward and the new 7 VP randoms/week as opposed to one/day. The Satchel is just there as there is no other place for the reward to go.

    As a tank, I actually call for random people in trade chat, and avoid the dungeon finder. I guess I'll stop doing that now.
    (and no, I do not charge for it)

    Maybe they should add Call to Arms: DPS that isn't AFK on the first ready check :P
