Damm who are these devs that actually give the players what they want :O
No same-faction BG queues is a miss imo. I remember rolling alliance at the beginning of classic and then swapping horde about midway through to find a 2 hour AV queue compared to my almost instant alliance queue. The only argument I could see for keeping it the original way would be to induce more Wpvp from horde players but that just ends up leading horde players to camp the entrance to BRD, DM, or any number of higher level zone flight paths. If you wanted it to be like the original game then you shouldn't have added summoning stones, 0.5 set, and BGs at launch. It just blows my mind how you could say "keeping true to the original experience", and then changing a ton of stuff that makes classic, classic (specifically talking about summoning stones). Should have done Classic+, you'd have gotten way more people excited, I'll play SoM over TBC but some of the changes just don't sit right with me.
RP-PvP servers now, please.
Thank god. good change
Oh really. So 1 minute AV Queue spamming for easy R14 as alliance then.
SoM is not about "keeping true to the original experience"... that's what the original iteration of Classic was for. Summoning Stones, T0.5 and BGS at launch are all good Quality of Life improvements. Did you not play phase 2 of original Classic? When there were no battlegrounds and the game was nearly unplayable for levelers and killed half the playerbase?
On the beta, queues are 2min for horde, and 10min for alliance. So we can clearly see the new dominant faction right now.
Add world buffs.
Without palas there will BE no serious Horde raiding guilds
