#0 - 2009/08/25 09:03:29 AMI have wanted rated BG's for a long time. And guess what? It's not because I hate arena. I like arena and BG's though these days it seems as though people think you are one or the other.
First off let me say the old "rank up" pvp system from vanilla was awful. However it did create a couple of positive results, and those were PvP guilds and BG trains. I miss the epic premade vs premade BG's. Today PvP guilds are almost nonexistent because there is no purpose for them. You only need 1-2 other players for arena.
When I heard rated BG's were finally going to become a reality I was dancing on my desk. Then I read how they were going to implement it and I promptly fell off my desk. I had expected it to be similar to the arena ladder system.
I like the fact that you don't have to have a set team like arena because getting the same 10-25 people online to run BG's could be a pain. However the 6+ games a week cap makes the whole thing seem pointless. I expected to see the rebirth of PvP guilds, but 6 games a week isn't going to make that happen.
TLDR: I would much rather see rated BG's be in a ladder system where points are taken away for a loss then to see it implemented like a daily quest with a 6 match a week cap.
