    Any bit of information about possible new Battlegrounds@ WoD?

    It is concerning me a bit... but perhaps it has always beeen this way. So far there has been quite a lot of information on many things that WoD will bring to the game. They even talked about many main changes to PvP etc etc, but I haven't seen a single clue about new battlegrounds.

    For some reason I'm affraid they aren't implementing any. Is it always like this for every new expansion? (as in.. information about new battlegrounds and arena maps only showing up very late) or are my concerns justified?

    Personally, as someone who does ALOT of PvE and PvP (Armory me if you don't believe me), the biggest thing that has been announced so far that I am really excited for is the new World-Style BG. The Island. That is awesome, Planetside in WoW has always been something I craved. A never ending battle with Conquest and Honor awards overall? That's an amazing idea and I will more than likely be playing that much more than raiding the first month or so of WoD.

    I've heard about that PvP zone as well. It sounds pretty damn good... but the idea of no new battlegrounds on a new expansion kinda disturbs me ;s

    How many BGs are needed really though?

    The game already has too many battlegrounds, if anything they need to cut battlegrounds, AB & WSG should go as they've been redundant ever since Gilneas & Twin Peaks were added.

    Ashren is going to be the shit.

    When my dad first heard of it, he was instantly reminded of Fellujah from Ultima Online.

    Due soely to the pvp possibilaties in Ashren, I will probably level my mage before my warrior to partake in pvp for a good chunk of the expansion.

    AB is infinitely better than Gilneas

    You'll probably know when Blizzard releases more information.

    And I would be willing to bet that any new info released will be on the front page. :O

    You got it wrong. Gilneas is actually infinitely better than boring AB.

    Sounds like classic AV to me.

    It's funny, those are the exact two battlegrounds I always turn down when queing for random. Can't stand the size of Gilneas.

    I liked the new battlegrounds added in MoP (maybe not the fact that because of the legendary quest they were often filled with people with no pvp gear/clue what to do in them) but I don't mind doing the same bgs over and over again. Actually, I wouldn't mind if some of them were removed (I'm looking at you SoTA and IoC). I'm really excited about the new PvP zone and I really hope that it turns out great.

    I really liked the MoP BGs. But i think game has enough BGs atm. They should only add new ones if they're original and well done. No need to make a alreadtexistingBG v2.0.

    More is always better. Maybe let us block a couple more BG's for those who dislike choices?

    "New Battlegrounds and World Bosses"

    They are adding new battlegrounds.

    As far as info for those battlgrounds, as far as I remember, there is none yet.

    if they remove wsg or ab i quit pvp. Dude stop sayung stupid things. Twin peaks isnt better nor is gilneas. If you talk about rehash the gamestyle then is twin and gilneas. When they said gileneas is going to be a bg I was actualy thinking about fighting in the city itself.. but instead some random area clowe to the wall. Just let them add something new and exciting and stay away from the older ones. If only tweak them.

    Ps remove isle of conquest period.

    I like the sound of that world PvP zone, sounds really fun and free! I don't feel like I'm stuck to an objective, I can just wonder off and do my own thing. Sure I can gain Honor and Conquest more if I do certain things, but the best part is I am free to choose! I'm pumped for that zone.

    WoD looks promising for PvP. (PvE too, of course.) But for a change PvP sounds fantastic! Super excited.

    Remove Isle and Strand of the Ancients. Worst BGs of all time.

    We do know that they decided against making a MOBA style battleground, stating that it felt too bandwagony or something.

    That was their intent from what I understand. I'm personally beyond stoked about it, I always liked the open-world PvP zones like Wintergrasp and Tol Barad but hated that you had to either be willing to set alarms every 2+ hours to get in on the battles or just hope you logged when one hadn't just ended; having a constant fight going over objectives if the scale is large enough is why I'm looking at the first thing I level being something that's fun to PvP with (namely at this point, my warrior).

    Kotmogu was decent, SSM was awful on release and it's only been recently that it was balanced for both factions (Horde not having a leg up on 2 carts off the bat). BfG was awful (Not enough bases, too easy to defend once you're established) and TP was unbalanced (Alliance can WW out of the waterway, Horde can slowfall off the ledge) in terms of tactics. The BGs they add at the start of the expansion havn't been great by any measure. I hold no hope for the next one, if there even is one.

    By that logic, do you really need more instances? They're just the same thing, kill scripted NPCs and get a chance for loot.
