    Exclamation Blizzard should re-texture old Battlegrounds

    In Mists of Pandaria we have really nice graphics that everyone enjoy. But we all know that PvP takes a huge part in this game, a lot of people play in Battlegrounds everyday and graphics there are really bad. Let's look at the peaks of mountains in Kun-Lai Summit. They look amazing. And now let's look at the Alterac Valley graphics. Same scenery but Kun-Lai looks really good and AV looks like a game with 10 years old graphics. I think its not that hard to re-texture all of the old BGs. I'm not saying to change the concept of them because its great - just change the graphics. What do you guys think?

    I've also made a topic on official forums so if you support this idea, give some love on this topic too: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6083338426#1

    It would be nice but people go in the battlegrounds to kill people, capture objectives or AFK in a cave in AV. I don't think the effort would be appreciated by a lot of people as in the end you go in, you go out.

    It's different in the open world as everyone sees it. Personally, I would like to see it.

    I would perf more new bgs then re-textured old one. Doing AB for 7 years is very boring.

    Surprised we have not seen a new version of AV but with the current Horde vs Alliance conflict. I love the scale BG's like AV and IoC

    this is the main problem, while retexturing may not seem like a big thing (it actually is) it will take time from other things the art team are doing so could delay other content.

    I'd love to see Blizzard re-texture old battlegrounds but I really can't see it being worth while.
    I'd rather more bgs if i had the choice. We always seem to be lacking new pvp content.

    The mountains in kun-lai and the... "tall hills" in AV were sculpted in fundamentally different ways, so you can't just copy paste the textures. Alterc valley is basically an entire zone unto itself, and retexturing it- all of it- by hand would take quite a bit of work, especially because textures are painted in a much more complex manner now than they were in vanilla.

    Blizzard should just fix Twin Peaks so that any Engineer on the Horde side won't have such a damn advantage when they carry the flag.

    I much rather have them focus their art team to creating more raids, not redoing old bgs.

    Re-Texturize = New colors completely same layout.
    RE-Model = New Layout and model, same concept.

    No. BG's look fine anyways.

    I'm pretty sure that Blizzard have enough people to do those 2 things at the same time

    Oh trust me I'm sure they do. But it would be worth it.
