So this is the reason battlegrounds don't work on RU realms anymore. Glad to know.
Love it! :D
wonderful,now i can get even more annoyed by kids who spam raid chat(oh yeah,and you cant leave the raid group) when i queue up for my random bgcant wait!on a serious note though.anyones battle.net screwed up today,i have like 2 sets of my battle.net friends on my friends listkinda wierd
WOW!This is something you think they should've done from the start, buts its great to see it getting done now.
Maybe someday we'll even get to que with our friends from other realms.
WTB for Europe! Please! NOW! :)
WHAAAAAAA?(This explains why Stormstrike Battlegroup was down)Omg I just noticed that my battlegroup is getting merged into BG9.HAWT!
I wonder if this is part of the reason why some of the battlegroups had the 24 hour maintenance. I notice that Whirlwind and Emberstorm, which were originally in Seattle, were moved to Phoenix during their maintenance, which puts them a lot closer to Bloodlust, Vengeance, etc., which are in LA.So in other words, for dungeons they'll be matched together by datacenter, and for BGs they'll all be matched together, but now the datacenters are in pairs (LA and Phoenix, Chicago and New York), versus before (LA and Seattle, Dallas and Boston) for whatever reason.
Hurray for shorter queue times for Emberstorm!
Come on Stormstrike! the 20mins BG ques are killing us!
Nice for BGs, useless for Dungeon Finder. Seriously, it'll make dungeon finding worst depending on if the other Battlegroups have a bigger DPS to Tank ratio than yours. It's a 50/50 hit or miss chance. I really hope they considered the character population for this. Cause if my Dungeon Finger group gets 3x the DPS and only 2x the tanks... it's gonna suck gearing up a DPS.
what about Vindication...there are US servers in that battle group?
Bet the number count of players online is becoming lower now, so instead of having sparse minimal players across realms......unifying group activities so they join together makes multiplayer like its meant to be! All the best blizz with all the technical side of things, will be a great undertaking to sort out!
So faster Battleground queues and maybe more even games?Yes please.
