    Epic battles and Idea's to resurect world PVP

    For a while now, ive been a common visitor to the opposing factions towns.
    But there is a rapid decline in the amount of people who actually participate in world pvp, especially raiding main cities.

    I'd like to see more rewards, or at least more options for world pvp.
    For example, 4x honor for killing an alliance inside his home city!


    Or even more quests/activities reguarding home cities.
    For example, a similar idea to WSG, capture the enemies Town Flag, and return it to your town center.
    this involves at least 10 people, a team effort, and one hell of a trek back to your own city, while fighting off attackers all the way.

    this could all be rewarded with special "world PVP" items.


    anyways, just my ideas.

    and comments/other suggestions are welcome, would love to see more epic battles around azeroth

    Great idea, really...I am all about some world pvp. They are rewarding the bear mount for killing city bosses now, so that's an incentive, and a title to boot. sadly, the majority of people will still be doing bgs and arena only. Arena because, well, its pretty fun, and is a real challenge. While bgs are for those who like to roll their face across a keyboard and feel good at the end of the day with their shiny new welfare. City raids take A) Time.... B) a good group... C) Usually a guild effort(pug runs usually fail at the gates). Which arena junkies cant give time for, and bg people dont have the skill or patience for.
    Here's my user friendly signature...enjoy.

    another thing i'd like to see implemented,
    is less standard 65/75 guards, and more ways for actual players to defend their towns.

    for example, boiling oil dropped from walls, etc. cool stuff to make it seige like

    or things like, a bell that requires 10 people to ring, that calls forth a commanding officer to aid you in defence.


    just random ideas tbh xD

    well, Halaa was great. the only issue was alliance dominated (on Muradin) and the enemy GY was too far away so when the attackers died the walk really killed the whole epic battle feel.

    Hahaha, oh lord!

    Please don't tell me that you as a pillarhumper are trying to derail BGs, although it'd be hilarious.

    Well, its nearly impossible to have a 2v2 team with 2 rogues - yes I know, sucky combination *cry cry* all that shit... But seriously. When you dont have a healer on a team, its kinda impossible to beat anything near 2 locks or other clothies. Warrior/Paladin is undestructible as 2 rogues. And aboe 1500, its the only thing we see generally. Or, friends getting boosted by full s4's. And dont say "just get a healer", cus I want to play with my friend.

    So yes, it is kinda impossible in our Battlegrp to get high rating.

    Arena aint about skills. Its about combo.

    But then again, my arena team and what so ever has nothing to do in this thread.

    arena is about skills. combo just makes life alot easier.
    i know what its like to have my full epic ret who ive played for years on a 1550 rating, and my noob merc/greens rogue on 1650, just because i work well with a frost mage.
    so i wont lower myself to insulting your teams.

    anyways, i dont want this thread degenerating into a "pvp neeedz skillz duhh" thread.

    so please, keep it on topic.

    The 6th best 2v2 team in the world is rogue/rogue.

    the reason for that, in my opinion, is because battlegrounds/arena's are far more rewarding than world pvp.
    bg's/arena's get you epic gear. world pvp gets you a massive repair bill from being mashed by guards.

    this is why i'd like to see less guards, more player based defenses, and more rewards for achieving things while world pvp'in.


    the only problem with world pvp, is there's nothing to lure players in, nothing apart from the satisfaction of killing people in an unscripted event. Where anything can happen and the rules are in your hands.

    add some rewards, and a few events/activities to spice things up, and we could get some real epic wars going on.

    Yes, I can understand you dont want this thread to be another pvp needs skills thread. Anywyas, why cry about it, its never going to happen..

    Etc. 2 Skilled Rogues vs. 1 skilled warrior and 1 skilled holy paladin. Do the math. Never possible to beat.

    The idea of having a flags in maincities which you can steal and bring back is an awsome idea. Think of it, me as rogue gonna stealth to there flags pick it and run like forrest gump! Everyone is chasing me to get it back haha

    There are "world pvp" achievement's come WotLK. The achievement system does give rewards so this will more than likely increase the amount of world pvp. This is the answer to all the world pvp junkies.
