    50v50 Deathmatch battleground

    So I saw this post on the blue tracker and I thought it's an awesome idea, I've always wanted a deathmatch style BG in WoW, I don't know why it hasn't happened yet.

    "50v50 BG
    Side w/ most kills win
    There should be cannons
    And towers
    And walls
    Pets should go wild (but stay same faction)
    There should be random boss spawns (like LK, Illidan, etc) that attack anyone.
    There should be siege vehicles.
    Arena should be the size of 4 WSG's put together.
    Hell, if you wanna be lazy, put 4 WSG's together w/ Garages of vehicles at either end of the arena.
    Keep the WSG Forts there when you put them together (break the wall b/n the 2 flag rooms, that'll be the starting area).
    There should be bridges going across from both Forts (bridges like Thunder Bluff)."


    The random boss spawn that attacks random players sounds awesome, I did think about something like that before, being in arena or BG and Illidan just lands on your head and starts owning you.

    Do you think it would be a good idea?

    Nothing special. Just deathmatch.
    50v50. Nothing else. No walls no towers no cannons no bosses no random just a huge battle.

    I've always wondered why there's so few types of BGs in game considering the age of the game. They have such high re-playability, and they don't seem particularly difficult to skin. Mainly re-use models, no need in voice actors.

    Just add lots of simple BGs like death matches, an infection type game, matches with more than 2 sides in them. If you can't balance them competitively keep them off the RBG circuit

    With the amount of input lag I'm getting in a simple 25 man raid, I'd hate to think what a 50v50 BG would do. And yes my pc specs are fine.

    Probably something between the server and you, ie - connection issues, could be your network adapter, router etc. No input lag here.
    It should be better in WoD anyway, with the spell and visual clutter reduction.

    That would be interesting, but it's about time they do something like BG where every kill awards points and the one to reach X kills first win.
    Then the people who fight in the middle of BGs and completely ignore the objectives would have their very own den of carnage.

    50 V 50 and if you die, you're done.

    That might be extremely fun even as a person who does not PvP.

    Yep, definitely want more massive PVP content. Would be amazing for farming Bloodthirsty too.

    50vs50. no bullshit, no npcs, no objectives, no battle pick ups, just pure killing.

    On a trench warfare style map. Or something that avoids just AoE super happy fun for 10 minutes.

    1) Load the amount of weight I would deadlift onto the bench
    2) Unrack
    3) Crank out 15 reps
    4) Be ashamed of constantly skipping leg day

    A square room with no way to LoS from any direction! (Nah, I think people would complain about that :/) Yes though, Hardcore BG, no respawns. 50v50 may be a bit much though... That's a lot for a computer to handle, especially when most people who play WoW don't have great computers. Maybe they could even implement different sizes 50v50, 40v40, 30v30.

    A free for all would be fun, too. Last man standing!

    Would encourage way too much turtling.

    Tier gear should be available during the leveling process. I don't want to have to mingle with these eltitist jerks in LFR to get gear as it is. I pay a sub fee, I shouldn't have to do LFR to get raid gear, much less Flex or Normal.

    Last man standing = stealthers ganking at the end and healers sitting in a corner, self healing *shudders*

    Ive always thought there was supposed to be Portals to Gurubashi Arena so u have some kind of fun filler PvP to do when ure bored. Free For all, Battlegroup wide, maybe some chest in mid that respawns with some extra honor in it, like 250

    Cool idea, but you'd have tank specs getting heal botted, people turtling hard, etc.

    Would rather just see a well-made PvP zone with incentives for classic PvP as opposed to "hold this, take that" objectives for a win.

    At least Ashran won't have vehicles? Seems promising from that alone.

    Only possible if they remove AOE healing that does not need a target.

    i like the idea of dieing then not rezzing.. kinda like arena.. if they made a bg with just a large circle and two teams of 15 that would be quick and fun pvp..

    I think it could be balanced easily, blizzard would have to make tanks take more damage or something.
