FINALLY an update for pvp. This is probably the thing im looking forward to most from MoP, how can you not like pvp updates like this??
people have to stop QQing..
'derp derp we want new content blizz omgffs'
New content released: 'omg this is shit remember vanilla oh that was so cool why did they screw it over'
I think this thread deserves to be a sticky as long as it gets updated with the release of every new piece of information.
And this is coming from doing Prot Warrior/Rogue back in WotLK when Prot was overpowered as hell (100-0 people inside a stun trololol), and from doing insane comps like Prot Warrior/Blood DK in Cata and succeeding.
Been playing WOW since US beta, and game has changed a lot.Why do people only talk about PVP in BG. WOW misses the outdoor PVP, I do not mean the outdoor PVP zones. Entering the instance from the cities or from anywhere in the world killed the PVP. No more gankfests or similar situations, no more drama, just fast & easy epic free game. What is killing the game??? The answer is simple: $$$$$ or epic free game = Activision Blizzard, Inc. Profit Margin 13.76%. Game lost the EDGE it used to have.
AV in the old days were.. interesting to say the least. While they provided fun battles they pretty much never ended and that resultet ind that you either had to invest 6+ hours to see it through or log out and get "nothing" for your troubles. With the current attitude in the community, which to me seems to be: "Hurry up! WTF noob!?". Ever done BRD these days? Most just want to kill the first boss that gives the reward and move on.
If they had to duplicate ANY arena, I'm so so so so SO glad it was Nagrand Arena. Not even disappointed.
I added the PVP info from tonight's live developer Q&A to the bottom of the original post.
Its about time blizzard actually touched pvp... its been like forever ever sense they touched bgs.
The amount of focus they are putting on encouraging world PVP looks EXTREMELY promising, I for one cant wait for Mists.That's some good stuff. Certainly the idea of World Raid Bosses that have a loot table like the BH bosses is worth thinking about.
As is the other stuff mentioned. This definitely looks to be the 'PvP' expansion.
Azshara crater has actually been worked on to some extent about 5/6 years ago, except it never made it into live. Several vids on youtube show what it looks like and my guess is that that map will be a prototype of the new crater to some extent. Might be interesting to check out and see how the new one will be different ))

Just seems odd.
TBH I think the arena map was developed for Cataclysm and just got pushed back so many times that they decided to put it in mists instead.I'm glad we're finally getting a new, normal arena map - but why Tol Vir?

The new BG's have me PUMPED. REALLY looking forward to them. I think one thing they could do to improve the level of play in random bg's is make the consequences more dire. For example, make a win yield a ton more reward than losing. Make doing objectives give a ton of xp as well.
On the world PvP side of things they need objectives that would yield honor or conquest equal to or greater than that from instanced PvP.
I don't really understand the "resilience is baseline" thing. The health pool increase definitely did not help in terms of burst but instead only exacerbated the survivability problem with how you had to find a single small open window in which to burn a target while spamming cc everywhere. They need to make sustained damage dangerous while reducing the reliance on CC (and removing a lot of crowd control too). I hope that outside of the features they'll focus a lot more on making PvP battles feel less frustrating.
