Seething Shore Battleground Now Live
The Seething Shore battleground is now live!

Azeroth has been dealt a terrible blow; her wound is grave, and a powerful new substance known as Azerite has been seen seeping up to the surface. As hostilities between the Horde and Alliance reignite, both factions recognize Azerite’s potential to turn the coming battle in their favor.

Located on an island near Silithus, the Seething Shore challenges teams to compete for control of Azerite nodes. Three nodes are active at any given time, and the first team to collect 1,500 Azerite claims victory.

To succeed, you’ll need team coordination to lock down control of the various nodes across the island, all while keeping a keen eye on the sky for additional power-ups that could give your team the edge you need.

Take part in a special preview Brawl beginning February 27 before it goes live in the normal Battleground rotation on March 6!

    As if this website isn't Blizzard's official news outlet.

    testing period people, that is why its only for a week , they're probably going to test it several times before pre-patch and then just release it.

    I wonder if people will actually go to those moving objectives or if it will be pure chaos. That would require them to open their map and I am not sure how people will manage that.

    Not enough volume on PTR. This is pretty much the best way to get enough people doing it to really shake out any remaining bugs/balance issues.

    Just did it and won it on my first try. Simple, but a pretty fun BG overall. I like how you jump off a parachute and can pretty much start anywhere on the map. I believe if you die, you rez on the ship, so you can use the parachute again after you die. It's a small map but there is people everywhere so you don't have to travel far to see any action. The skirmishes that occur around the deposits are really fun too. It also appears to be designed in a way that winning by a blowout will be quite difficult to do, so it should give either faction a fighting chance.

    I only have two complaints for this bg, one being how fast you cap the deposits. I understand this is suppose to be a quick, fast paced bg, but even if you are about half the map away from an active deposit, you can just forget about it because it will be capped. This might be intentional though because blizz might actually want players to camp the erupting deposits that are away from the action, but they could take maybe a second longer to cap. Second complaint, the bg is only lasting for one week

    A week? This is some kind of next level time gating

    pretty much this. I find it weird people even do BG's anymore. PVP has literally no rewards.

    Do Mathias Shaw and Lord Shaxx share a voice actor? I thought that Shaw's announcing during the BG sounded familiar. haha.

    You don’t. Need rewards to do something fun.
