    WoW Battle Royale like or no?

    So i played a mobile game called Mobile Legends and its basically like League of Legends or Dota and they even have battle royale and it was kinds cool same concept could be brought in WoW as a world pvp basically.

    WoW is big enough to have at least 20 maps or more in all different locations of WoW.

    You drop out of a goblin plane or w.e. and you are already max level and you find gear that is tuned to the same ilevel for everyone.(you can find gear on floor/in chests or just kill mobs that drop the gear and wear it as you go)

    You get to pick a class before you drop.(remove the op skills like stealth and immune effects)

    Now im not saying i want this feature but if it came would you hate it or love it?

    Edit: Also it would not be a seperate new game but a que like BG, Arena and then Battle Royale.

    it will take 10 years for blizzard to understand that battle royale in wow would be 100x more interesting and popular then cancer battlefront/expeditions they add in bfa...

    So basicly WoW without any mmorpg elements. Kind of like HoTS but with gear and without any other franchises.
    Nope

    i do believe it would be more fun then warfronts or island expeditions

    Any other new ideas? A big battleground with vehicles where you storm a castle and winning faction gets a special raid-boss?

    /s For those that don't recall that WoW has already had it.

    Um, has WoW always had this with the STV arena? Comparisons to world PvP are wrong because that's side based not FFA PvP but STV arena is FFA.

    So really we'd what, have an instanced, larger scale version of STV? I guess you could start everyone naked or in greens, then have them pick up temp gear in the instance but I dunno if that will work well. I suspect the winners would reliably be a small selection of classes and specs.

    WoD had a coliseum free-for-all, which was fun for a bit.

    I would definitely try a battle-royale BG, especially with squads. I would want a large-scale island so that there could still be small skirmishes.

    ^ Pretty much this.

    The problem with BR in wow as seen in the WoD Colosseum , was that some classes had extreme advantages over others, but most of the time winning involved politics and usually the best politicians won.

    Honestly, loved the Colosseum, but isn't Battle Royale just a glorified King of the Hill/Last Man Standing?

    Make it non-instanced and I am game.

    If they made a royal battleground that would be actually pretty cool, kinda like their huge bg's but when you die you are gone.

    Yes, but with some extra mechanics:
    - the area starts huge and shrinks over time.
    - there are upgrade to pick up and loot.
    - there's usually a squad mode so you can play as a team, which would be a better fit for WoW than solo-queue.

    It would make for a good Epic BG. Queue up as a 5man party and face off against 7 other teams on a massive island that slowly shrinks away. Maybe they could integrate their expedition-AI-players into it to fill in some extra teams.

    Not sure how non-instanced would work. It would be OP if you could enter the fight halfway through.

    You can use sharding and whatnot, since most likely there will always be a new one starting.

    Or maybe you have to watch it end, like the brawlers guild.

    On a practical level, i don't hate this idea and think it could work well (wow engine can handle 100 players NP)

    on the other, how would you do the que? solo? teams of 3, or 5 like arena?

    I kind of like the idea but I think it would be a bastard to balance and I imagine the fume that would start when it wasn't perfect would just mean it wouldn't be worth the hassle. I'd probably still rather be playing the classic beta.

    No...wasted resources. BR are awful.

    Then we have engine limitations on larger populations and the fact that pvp combat is sorta "meh". Doubt it could work in a good way.
