Hello everyone, we recently announced that Legion Beta will be starting later this week. We wanted to give you a heads up that the PvP realm will not be available for the first day of the Beta.

We want to learn as much as we can from the first day of Beta to help improve the launch experience for Legion. So it's important that we focus as many people as we can on that launch content.

Also, when the PvP realm does come up the next day, only battlegrounds will be available. Battlegrounds will only start if a lot of people queue for them, so we're going to focus the PvP queues on them for the beginning of beta.

We'll monitor the queues and bring back Skirmishes once we feel we've gotten some solid testing on battlegrounds.

Thanks again for all of your participation and feedback. We'll see you in Beta!

I like this a lot. Consider forcing 3s too when skirms come about, I think 2v2 double dps battles give a bad impression of the pacing and excluded a lot of specs from real testing (games are almost always over right after or during offensive & defensive CDs).


This is simply due to the number of healers queuing. If there were enough healers, the matches would be all 3s.
