In Development: PvP Mercenary Mode

They say, “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer”—and soon, you’ll be able to do just that.

In an upcoming patch, we’ll be adding a feature that allows you to act as a mercenary for the opposite faction in PvP. Whenever your faction is experiencing a long wait time to get into Ashran or unrated Battlegrounds, agents of the enemy faction will appear in your base in Ashran (Stormshield for the Alliance, Warspear for the Horde). These agents will allow you to enter Ashran or Battlegrounds disguised as an enemy player, and actually fight as the opposite faction.

When you compete as a mercenary, you’ll still earn all the same rewards you would have by winning or losing as your own faction (with the exception of faction-specific achievements). You’ll also have your race automatically changed into one appropriate for the opposite faction while you’re still inside the Battleground or Ashran. Perhaps most importantly, however, you’ll experience much shorter queue times, as our matchmaking system will be able to fill up groups much quicker!

Our goal with Mercenary Mode is to allow players who want to participate in Ashran or unrated Battlegrounds the ability to do so without having to wait through long queues, while still maintaining the spirit of the core Alliance vs Horde fantasy. We’ll be testing this feature soon on the Public Test Realm, and look forward to hearing your feedback!

PvP Mercenary Mode Clarifications
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Few points of clarification based on some discussion we've been seeing around the interwebs:

On racials: The current intention is that the system swaps your race entirely, including your racial ability. We recognize that that puts Humans in a weird spot, so we're looking into some options there that aren't "spend your Honor/Conquest on a Medallion."

Only the faction that is currently experiencing a long queue will have the option to act as a Mercenary, and only when those queues reach a certain point (which is still being determined). In the current environment, we expect that to generally be Alliance. Since queues have to reach that threshold before Mercenary Mode becomes available, we don't anticipate an increase in Horde queue times.

Using the Mercenary Mode system is completely opt-in. It's important to us that if you don't choose to participate in Mercenary Mode, it doesn't affect you. Should you be grouped with players who are using the system, they will not be identified to you as mercenaries -- they'll look like just another player from your faction.

Similarly, it's important to note that these are not creating "mixed-faction" scenarios. There will be no Humans fighting alongside Orcs. Again, our intent is that you are completely unaware that the person next to you is secretly a Night Elf.

We don't consider Mercenary Mode to be a replacement for racial balance. We just also don't think that perfectly balanced racials would instantly resolve queue time issues. We also don't think that players should feel forced to faction transfer (potentially away from friends and guildmates) in order to experience reasonable queue times.

The picture in the blog is of one of the NPCs that Alliance players can speak to to activate Mercenary Mode for Battlegrounds. Players who are using Mercenary Mode won't just be wearing a Hallow's End mask, lol.

Ultimately, this system's sole purpose is to help resolve the issue where heavy tilts in faction populations can result in excessively long queue times for unrated PvP content.

Can I queue with my friends that are on horde this way or no?
No. Again, it's only intended to alleviate queue times.

Upcoming PvP Rewards Hotfix
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Since the release of Patch 6.2, we’ve gotten a ton of feedback regarding the Champion’s Strongboxes rewarded from Ashran and Rated Battlegrounds. We’ve been discussing that feedback heavily since the patch released, and wanted to take a moment to clarify some confusion as well as share an upcoming change.

To start, we’d like to clarify exactly what can be found inside a Champion’s Strongbox, as some (though certainly not all) players seemed to be anticipating items that they’d never have been able to get from the Strongboxes anyway:

  • Strongboxes can never reward items that can be purchased with Conquest Points.
  • Strongboxes can never reward cloaks, necks, or rings.
  • Strongboxes can never reward items with set bonuses.

With that said, we definitely recognize that the Strongbox rewards (or rewards from any box, for that matter) are unclear, and that’s something we’re looking to improve upon in the future.

In addition, we’re currently in the process of applying a hotfix that will remove the Versatility belts, boots, and bracers from the Strongboxes, and make them available on the Conquest vendors instead. Once this hotfix is active, Champion’s Strongboxes will only reward helms, chestpieces, gloves, shoulders, and legs, as well as the Accolade random stat trinkets. Remember that armor pieces earned from Strongboxes do not grant set bonuses, so most players will only want to equip one of those pieces.

We feel that this change will allow there to still be a benefit to earning the Champion’s Strongboxes over the course of the season, but due to the fact that you’ll still want to complete your set bonuses, that benefit will be a little extra flexibility in gearing choices instead of simply having Versatility items another player may not have won. This also greatly increases the chances of earning a desirable item from your Strongbox (at least, until you have everything you want from them) by reducing the overall number of possible items you could get.

Thanks again for all of the feedback on this topic. We’re hopeful that this change will greatly improve the gearing experience in Warlords Season 2, and are taking all of your feedback to heart as we plan for future seasons.

    Uh... so how will this mercenary mode affect horde queue times? Cus let's be honest here...

    @MercenaryMode So what your saying is that I can race change to human but still queue up for the horde and still be an orc? Thanks devs, now I can be an orc with an overpowered racial.

    Edit: Grammar Issues

    How will it be abused?

    Why is it a bad solution?

    It's the only solution for unbalanced factions, they should have done it years ago

    Rift has a similar thing, and it's all the better for it, except it's default rather than being opt-in through a particular NPC.

    Yeah. This will open the door for all sorts of griefing and ppl queueing up only to go afk and sink the other group. This opens the door for some other issues going down the road. Instead of just balancing factions they are breaking the game to counter the issue.

    This is the only option to balance factions and create decent queue times I don't get the confusion or outrage. The only other way they could fix it is it they, at random, forced faction changes until both factions are equally represented. Imagine the shit storm that would cause.

    I've been asking for this for YEARS and I'm glad they're finally doing it.

    Or the could fix racials, allow same faction pvp instead of this horse shit. There are plenty of better options that doesn't open the door for greifing like this will.

    Blizzard can do nothing to balance the factions. The community makes the decision on which faction to choose and which is more popular

    Its bad idea in a way and just makes Servers that have low pop on 1 side to have even MORE low pop on that side. Somewhat of a good idea but its just bad and a waste.. when you could do:

    Want to fix faction issues or somewhat fix long ques...
    A: Offer Free faction change to Horde or Alliance depending on the server (Horde heavy free faction to Alliance balance out)
    B: Offer Free Transfers to dead realms or over populated faction sides (Over pop horde side.. free transfer to Alliance on that server).

    but xfering off would still cost or faction change back to other side would still cost.
    Plus people "MIGHT" xfer to join friends as well on that server.

    "Nobody says no to free things"

    When server reaches a set number of near balance. close off free Faction Change and Free Transfers.

    What you're going to get is a group of "mercs" planted in the opposite faction that will deliberately tank that faction into defeat.

    Or.. OR.. Instead of having to deal with constant whining about Racials they could just disable them in PvP. Best idea ever, right? That way everything is fair and balanced Race-wise. No more QQ'ing about OP Racials etcetc.
