    AB - Enemy team up by 200 points = Let them win.
    AV - Lost a tower / enemy team has more reinforcments = Let them win.
    EOTS - Down by 100 = Let them win.


    With a chance at an extra reward, player may get off their asses and attempt to win. This will make BGs more exciting. I hope they add it to randoms as well.
    ^^what this guy said...
    The trick of selling a PvP-MMO is creating the illusion among gankers that they are respectable fighters while protecting them from respectable fights, as their less skilled half would be massacred and quit instead of “HTFU” as they claim.

    I can't agree with you on the grounds of this very problem. A raid boss is a static entity with a predetermined difficulty and a researchable behavior. The players in a battleground come in various classes, specs, talent setups, experience levels and skill levels. You cannot simply know what a group of 10-to-25 players are going to do in every instance immediately upon entering a match. Feng isn't going to stop in the middle of Phase 2 after he realizes he can easily kill the healers if he focuses on them and then easily finish the rest of the party. A few players from the opposing team may notice a Holy Paladin slightly behind a group of DPS players and see an opening to chain-CC and burst that healer down with a variety of methods not necessarily predictable by your own team.

    They aren't rewarding you for "almost being good enough to win." They're rewarding you for nearly matching another group of player's skills but ultimately losing. It's incentive to keep trying when you're on a losing streak.
    Gone until the next expansion.

    It would be frustrating to not get at least something out of it, when you're losing.

    That's ridiculous. Defeat should have no reward associated with it.

    I feel like some idiot has already taken this post seriously, but I CBA to read every page of this thread.

    I just want to applaud your sarcasm for helping put this into perspective.

    You mean I have room for text now?

    I still think RBGs were a complete waste of time and should have been created as a "better random queued BG without bots" with CAPTCHAs to verify players, but instead they've become 10v10 arena for .001% of the player base.
    Let's just forget that the playerbase cried about wanting it? Like most of the things Blizzard do, they listen, create and then get some people like you to whine about it.
