I would be happier with a grander WSG. Think WSG meets AV....that kind of scale... where you go grab different flags, worth different points....towers 3, bunkers 5, base 7...that sort of thing.... do you go for quick caps and smaller points...or do you push for the big prize? Theres all kinds of things Blizz could have done to make this version more.....epic.... in scale.
While I'm not against the idea of new game types, I did think that they should have more than one map for each game type. I'm glad they're doing this.
YAY! A new CTF battleground that the hordes gonna lose all the time (I play horde btw).But thank Thrall they are giving it 2 graves so the alliance cant gravecamp us.
Come then! My log does not judge!Would you like to play with fire, little boy/girl? Would you like to play with BOB?
I'd personally like to see a lot more BG of similar styles as well as some new game styles as well. So about 5 of each game type for those that spend a lot of time doing battlegrounds.As for this battleground it will be interesting to see how it plays from the screenshot someone posted the river doesn't look very wide...looks more like a creek...They need to make it wider. Take some notes from TF2 lol
I don't think this is a good idea i mean we already have Warsong Gulch so why they maked a anthoer one?
Blizzard are not adding a second flag BG into the game they are replacing Warsong Gultch with this one as the Warsong clan have defeated the Nightelfs in ashenvale (presumebly by taking their flag...)We wont be able to go to WSG in Cataclysm instead we can go to this almost identicle and possibly superior version of it.I also presume more battlegrounds other then this will be added to Cataclysm just have to wait and see
All I can say is that there damn well better be a dead human female named Laura Palmer in there somewhere.If there's quests involved, I really hope one of the questgivers is a gnome whose text is all backwards. :D
Damn good PvP!
What if the flag was too heavy to swim with and would make the carrier drown real fast... Then all FC's would be forced to go over the bridge creating some nice battles there.
I wouldn't mind rehashing old BG ideas if they actually did it often enough to give us a decent choice. Most multiplayer games have at least 20 maps to choose from... I realize this is an MMO and not a FPS or RTS, but it really can't be that hard to throw some extra maps together using old mechanics. 1 new BG a year just doesn't keep it interesting.Edit: also http://www.twinpeaksrestaurant.com/
Did it ever occur to anyone this may not be "another" wsg, but "the new" warsong gulch? I mean, the horde already WON warsong gulch and took ashenvale (in cataclysm), they can't exactly keep fighting it anymore, now can they? I think this is a new revamped WSG that is here to replace the previous one. I mean, there were some issues (like line of sight mechanics, for one) in the old world battlegrounds, and if half the point of cataclysm is to revisit and revamp old world, it seems obvious the old world battlegrounds should see the same treatment. It would be lame and boring to totally redo warsong gulch with the new graphics scheme and whatnot and not change anything, and judging by what wrath looks like and what cata will look like, it would look horribly out of place to leave the old world battlegrounds as they are, even ignoring the previously mentioned plot hole.I expect this BG to be very similar indeed to WSG, with a new look, and perhaps a couple new mechanics or mechanic fixes (no more &$*%ing firing through rocks and dirt walls and whanot, wow blizzard failed at LoS in classic x.x)
As long as there aren't any siege vehicles, I'll take twenty.
