    What if cross-realm BGs were disabled one weekend a month?

    It’s clear we’re getting cross-realm battlegrounds for a variety of reasons, since it helps queues for lower level brackets, off-peak hours, dead servers, faction imbalance, etc.

    But what if they were disabled once in a while for that 1.1 to 1.11 experience?

    Are we going to have 1.1 - 1.11 realm faction balance? No? Didn't think so.

    Are we playing on a 1.1 - 1.11 client? No.

    Honestly, bad idea.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    I do remember how battlegrounds were before cross-realm. They were pretty much dead.

    Cross-realm for battlegrounds is needed, otherwise there won't be enough players to play with.

    there was a reason blizzard put cross realm BGs in the first place, because the majority of servers werent perfectly balanced when it comes to factions, so queues were fucked up

    The side that loses will just quit that week that it is server only queues.

    Changes nothing except the q times for AV, which is going to be best honor.

    I'm thinking, (it's wishful thinking I know) that maybe, hopefully, the server and faction populations will be high and even enough to not warrant needing CRBG's. Is it really so bad if you have a 10-15 minute BG queue? Go farm some consumable mats or work on profs, play the AH etc, there's plenty to keep yourself occupied during BG queues.

    Unfortunately CRBG's are an essential evil. A lot of the people (especially PvPers) coming to Classic wouldn't have the patience for BG queues and would complain endlessly on official forums until Blizz changed it. That and there is a very high chance the majority of servers will be uneven in faction balance.

    Problem is you assume there is some kind of faction balance, which won't happen. Some servers will be dominated by horde, some by alliance. Without cross-realm it won't be possible to do battlegrounds at all on some realms.
