    Question *New Feature* at BlizzCon - Says PvP designer Holinka

    PvP designer Holinka says new feature will be revealed at blizzcon, so it might be a pvp feature..

    We've all been there. You come out of a meeting about a feature you know fans will love. But you have to wait a week until they find out :-(

    I wouldn't be too surprised if it was either Spectator mode or Skirmishes... more likely the latter.

    I would really like pvp scenarios. Think quick 10 min matches with 3-10 players and pvp objectives possibly mixed with some kill the enemy captain pve objectives.

    First win of the day +200 honor and 50 conquest.
    Second+ win +75 honor and 20 conquest points.

    Plus think of the bags of gold=D.

    The amount of bots that will emerge from that idea makes me want to quit.

    New feature: GC quits. That would be nice.

    But he said "a meeting", meaning any number of WoW devs could have been on it. And considering how close Blizzcon is and considering this is a feature to be revealed at Blizzcon, it very well could have been something completely PvP unrelated. He was commenting/tweeting as "WoW dev" not as "PvP dev".

    I respectfully disagree. Holinka came into the job when MoP was already in place, meaning he couldn't change any of the major mechanics that were already there. He also joined when BM Hunters were 1shotting with pets and Warriors had 5 stack TfB and gag order.

    Since then, he has increased resilience, increased battle fatigue (thus slowing down the pace of PvP), brought in conquest catch-up, brought in cross-realm arenas, pushed for hundreds of PVP related balance tweaks and generally made PVP more enjoyable.

    There is still a lot of work to be done, but Holinka is doing a fantastic job at the moment. He is also promoting a lot of PvP tournaments.

    Yes pls. But they have to add something to stop bots from using it aswell.
    Ysera is green, and her skin glitters with countless emeralds for scales. Her physical form is ghostly, ethereal, like watching a living dream or vision. The Emerald Dream is a place where all living beings dream when sleeping. It is a place of where sentient beings have dreams of hope, and faith for a better tomorrow. Her eyes are always closed, although you can see her pupils move constantly below her eyelids as if watching many dreams at once.

    Which they can't. Social control (i.e. player control) remains the best way to beat the bots.

    That being said, I hope for 5v5 rated bgs. I feel like arena maps are too small for proper 5v5, and in the end we play AB and eye of the storm, that were designed for 15v15 as 10v10 in rbgs as well. Maybe 7v7 would work, dunno, but on maps like twin peaks, gilneas and wsg I can definitely see the fun in that.

    I guess this could be a "feature," but I would be mildly disappointed if that meets their criteria for that word.
