Too much WSG?

#1 » Post by Nyeriah » 21 Jan 2017 06:02

Hey,

We have that mechanism in place that ensures the battleground that pops is always WSG when there are few players queuing. However, given the events of lately it's happening more often than it usually would. I believe it has started to wear people off, so I wonder if the idea of also having AB, and even maybe EOTS more often would be interesting?

Leaving a poll,

Regards

Yeah, personally gave up on battlegrounds because of the 24/7 WSG.

I'd like to see more AB. It actually requires cooperation and tactics compared to WSG and EOTS.

EOTS is all about playing ring-around-the-rosie in a clockwise or counter-clockwise motion on the map to capture bases (that too in the most boring manner possible - by standing around) while some random bloke runs the flag to one of the 4 corners (or dies trying).
WSG is all about capturing the flag with FAP or just pvp'ing to the death at any x,y point on the map.

So more AB. Definitely.

I personally wouldn't enjoy playing 3v3 AB or EOTS, since you would spend more time capping flags than actually doing PvP. I don't know how many people at the moment is exactly needed for AB/EOTS to start, but, it would need at least 5v5/6v6 to be somewhat viable.

agree, eots and ab cannot reach its fun potentional without a minimum of 10 players each group.

starting eots or ab with less than that other than starting WSG is the worst idea ever.

I prefer Warsong Gulch over the larger battlegrounds when there are less than 10 players. Often, I just end up AFK defending a base in Arathi Basin, because there is no player in sight.

With the line of sight 'fix', Arathi Basin is the only map that doesn't feel strange when it comes to LoS-issues. Eye of the Storm is a mess (none of the rocks provide LoS), so I would most certainly prefer Arathi Basin over Eye of the Storm.

I don't play too many battlegrounds, so the more active players might have a different opinion about it.

I actually prefer WSG over all. It's my favorite and have been since... Forever ^_^
Never heard a complaint about it either

Yeah, obviously not 3v3 AB as that would be awful :P But 5v5 or 6v6 could be consistent considering more players could join later. I thought about Eots, but perhaps Eots may indeed feel a bit dull.

Due to having small population, WSG is the best bg that can happen, ofcourse putting aside the fapping druids. In a PVP world, you would want more often player vs player interaction, and WSG offers the grounds for it, better than any other bg.

I would even recommend starting a second WSG instead of SOTA, a lot of players avoid queueing because it is SOTA. Just imagine a 9vs9 WSG compared to SOTA or EOTS. AB is great bg, so I would like WSG more often then AB and then SOTA.
