I am happy to announce that rated battlegrounds are now available in the beta. The bracket is set to 10v10 for this period of testing. We will rotate the brackets to get testing in all areas as we see fit. Please queue up and leave us any feedback that you find on the system.

We will be setting up a "play with the devs" focused test for Rated BG's sometime next week. Be on the lookout for a post with more info soon.

Q u o t e:
Yeah, I have loads of questions about rated BGs. It sounds like it's "Guild BGs With Ratings", rather than Rated BGs; if I'm not misinformed, all members of a BG "team" have to be in the same guild, no?


Your guild membership has no impact on rated BG teams. You can form a raid to join up no matter what guild you are in. However, if you join a rated BG with the minimum number of required guild members, you will earn guild xp for a win. You will be notified in the top right of your screen via a guild banner that you are in a guild group.

It actually sounds like there is a lot of confusion going on with players about rated battlegrounds in general. I will get a basic FAQ together and get it posted ASAP.

Q u o t e:
So we basically have to be in a team to do rated battlegrounds. I was hoping I could just queue up as a single and get placed in with 9 other random people. If I can't do this, well.....I think this is poor design. Myself as well as others are more or less casual players.....so if I can't get 10 people or 5.....then I don't do rated bg's....so this is pretty much like arena...I need an arena team....so since I'm a BG pugger, I don't qualify for the team requirement......yeah I'm definitely not happy, but whatever. :P


You don't need a "team" in the idea that you play with that same team every week. You can join up with any group of different players each time you play.
