    Cataclysm: Twin Peaks Battleground

    Cataclysm: Twin Peaks Battleground
    Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment

    Capture the Flag
    Twin Peaks is a new 10 vs. 10, capture-the-flag-style battleground. Much like in Warsong Gulch, players must work to dominate variable terrain, infiltrate the enemy base, and steal the enemy flag, returning it to their fortress while remaining in control of their own flag. The first faction to capture three enemy flags before time expires will win the battle.

    Dominating the Terrain
    Although the Wildhammer and Dragonmaw bases are virtually identical, the terrain surrounding each base is not. Players will need to work to control an asymmetrical field where the mountain peaks are divided by a valley river. A single bridge over the river serves as a choke point in the center of the map; although deep, the river can be crossed. On either side of the river sits an outpost where temporary character enhancements can be claimed. In addition, tree stumps and rocks throughout the valley create strategic points for you to use line of sight to your advantage. To prevent absolute domination by one faction through its control of the enemy graveyard, the Horde and Alliance players resurrected in Twin Peaks will spawn from one of two graveyards per faction.

    Wildhammer Longhouse
    Serving as the Alliance stronghold in the north, the Wildhammer Longhouse hovers above the valley, atop a series of plateaus. With three entrances to the complex, players have two primary means of reaching the longhouse: scaling the plateaus to the northwest, or using the stairwell up the middle in order to access any of the three openings. Be careful, though! Falling or being knocked off the cliff can not only cause damage, but it can also hinder a successful offensive against or defense of the base.

    Dragonmaw Clan Compound
    Acting as the Horde base in the south, the Dragonmaw Clan Compound sits over a body of water into which the valley's river feeds. With three entrances to the compound, players have a few means of getting inside. One entrance on the southeast side requires riding up an incline and crossing a knee-deep river. A second entrance is through a water pipeline leading from the surrounding lake, while the main entrance can be accessed via a bridge over the waterfront. You'll want to be aware of your surroundings when you use the main entrance, though, because players can be knocked down into the water, slowing their advance or crippling their defense.

    Those who seek to control Twin Peaks will face an intense battle. The lands surrounding this ever-troubled location are key strategic strongholds of Deathwing and all of his followers. The Twilight Highlands are as rich with history as they are fraught with disaster and tragedy. Will the Dragonmaw clan, reinforced by Garrosh's Horde, take control? Or will it be the Wildhammer dwarves, reunited with their Ironforge brethren and accepted into the Alliance, who seize the peaks?

    Not a huge fan of PvP, and Wsg is probably my least favorite BG, but the scenery in this place looks absolutely amazing.

    When victory seems worth any sacrifice,
    there is a price to be paid for such a gift

    Interesting that they chose another capture the flag bg. I guess now we have options of where we want to play capture the flag.
    I've played a balance druid and an arms warrior since the release of Vanilla WoW, simply because they are fun and I like the play styles. Enjoy the game.

    Dear developers,

    please nerf Rock, it's too overpowered. Paper is fine, however.

    Bit disappointed it's a reskin of WSG...

    Ah well, WSG will prob be deserted now at 85 :/
    Lag - Network related. High server response time, stop downloading.
    Low FPS - Your computer can't keep up with the game - buy a better one

    Dalaran doesn't lag (often) your pc just sucks.

    RIP Paul Gray

    CTF games have a way of lasting ... very long.
    And favors certain classes.
    If one side has no paladins, and no druids, you're pretty much screwed.

    I doubt this BG will become very popular..

    Fuck yeah WSG with LoS.

    Re: Cataclysm: Twin Peaks Battleground

    I wish Blizzard would make a battleground based on the "rush" mode of play from Battlefields Bad Company 2 - that would be much greater fun that yet another tired capture the flag type.
    I wanna go back to my trainer and learn a new spell in the next expansion! And we all need to be able to fly from day 1 ! (And fly over the Exodar and Silvermoon on our own mounts!)

    I thought the Dragonmaw orcs were affiliated with Rend Blackhand's horde and therefore enemies of Thrall's horde?

    Oh Garrosh you sneaky bastard.
