FROM HOLINKA ON THE 40 MAN WAR CAMPAIGNS: Right now it's just an idea
What we know:
Blizzard is considering moving Alterac Valley, Wintergrasp, Tol Barad and Isle of Conquest into their own queue titled War Campaigns
. These fights would be for players looking for something more than a 10 minute game, as these games would go on for an hour or more.
Our current thinking is to move the big BGs (AV, IoC) into their own list. Perhaps re-tune WG and TB as well. Make this list about long epic fights that go on for an hour or more.
One day, there'll be PvP activity in WoW that doesn't end in 10 minutes. There are currently 11 battlegrounds
(not including Tol Barad and Wintergrasp) that offer a quick fix for honor farmers and those that would rather fast combat. Those that want something longer have nothing
We have to prove that players want this by offering feedback. If you'd like to see Wintergrasp, Tol Barad, Isle of Conquest and Alterac Valley return to some epic battle that offers a lengthy alternative (with appropriate rewards for your time!), would you play
