    Clarification

    I've asked on the blizzard forum but no one had an answer/replied

    Picking up the Alliance or Horde flag while in a Rated Battleground now increases damage taken by 50% for characters in a tanking specialization, and increases damage taken by 20% for characters in a non-tanking specialization.
    it also count for orbs in Tok and for the flag in EoTs ?

    Don't think so. In ToK you already have a quickly stacking debuff that increases the damage you take and EoTS is not really a ctf map.
    I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

    I imagine EoTS would increase damage taken, but for Kotmogu, as Niberion said, it isn't a traditional 'flag holding' map so I can't imagine the penalty would apply there.

    Though due to the obsession with the flag, it getting that same penalty in EotS might not be a bad thing, making it less attractive.
    I can but hope.

    I would hope that in an RBG EotS, your group would be a little more cohesive and receptive to directions...

    In Randoms, though, have you ever seen a tank spec charge at the flag once the BG starts? All I ever see are DPS. :P

    It seems to only apply to RBGs
    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    That's what I was getting at. I think ComputerNerd will be disappointed, because by the sounds of it he's referring to random BGs, not RBGs.

    I am 100% certain it wont be in EOTS as someone at Blizzard would argue "but you dont have to kill the FC you could just take a 3rd base."
    "Gamer" is not a bad word. I identify as a gamer. When calling out those who persecute and harass, the word you're looking for is "asshole." @_DonAdams
    When you see someone in a thread making the same canned responses over and over, click their name, click view forum posts, and see if they are a troll. Then don't feed them.
