I play WoW and mostly am a PvE kind of person, but whenever I reach the -4 and -9 level brackets I LOVE to PvP in the battlegrounds (no matter how many times I might lose). Even max level, I'll do it when I'm bored (I at least get a separate set for PvP gear, but still could work on my talents and reaction times).
It's fun, and I can tolerate negative attitudes pretty well. Sometimes I wish I could kill more people in 1v1 fights than I currently can. Since I can't, I usually resort to calling out incs, sticking tight with groups, escorting flag carriers, defending bases, and just trying to help people out of a pinch (even if it means I'm just gonna die in the next 5 seconds...I always pray I've at least bought enough time for an FC to get as far away as possible to safety). Personally, I think both kinds of players are at least helpful, if not necessary in a triumphant battleground: Admit it, some players REALLY know there stuff and it's nice to have a death machine basically on your side (they also make me feel I'm WAY out of my league when I PvP XD). On the other hand, I've found that even teams with lower skilled players can at least hold their own in a formidable fight and even win with some teamwork (and these, I usually have the most fun in).
So, couple of questions I guess:
1) Are YOU a pro soloer (can kill anyone that comes across your path) or more of a teamwork kind of person?
2) Do you think a battleground is gonna go over better if the majority or your team are pro soloers or team players?
3) Is it rare to find a person that's BOTH a team player and a pro soloer? (I ask this because sometimes I get the feeling pro soloers are a lot more focused on their own attacks, buffs, debuffs, and basically whatever is on their screen rather than on the battleground map as a whole or the chatbox. It just always felt like to me that these kinds of players put a LOT of focus in what THEY'RE doing, which I don't really mind.)- For this one, I suppose I should specify this to RANDOMS (not premades)
So what do you guys think? I'm mostly talking about random battlegrounds here, but I'd also welcome comparisons to arena, premades, and even world PvP (I'm sure they all differ slightly in one way or another)
