Turtle WoW PvP Week #1

Post by Torta » Wed May 29, 2019 8:06 pm

Greetings!

We are announcing our first “PvP Week”, it will take place during the first week of June.
  • The honor gain will increase up to 5x.
  • Remember that the level 1—9 PvP bracket is open for Warsong Gulch in Turtle WoW.
  • You will gain experience by doing Battlegrounds. 5% of the level if you win, and 2.5% of the level if you lose (you can always stop your experience gaining getting the Turtle Twink’s Insignia for free talking to Speedy. Once the insignia is removed, you’ll continue getting experience).
  • Battleground tabards will be able to queue you to their respective Battleground. They won’t have any reputation requirement anymore and you will be able to buy them in the Battlemasters located inside the RP hubs.
Also, Warsong Gulch only requires 2 players to pop up, Arathi Basin 6 players, and Alterac Valley, 10 players.

My comments are:

While gaining XP in Battle grounds might sound like a good thing for those interested in PvP, there are some negative aspects here too:
1) You are adding more and more PvP stuff, but remember Turtle is one of the few PvE servers around. Don't change this. Being a pure PvE server is why most people came to Turtle in the first place.
2) Adding XP to battlegrounds opens up a potential "XP exploit". Here, like in any team sport, it's possible to agree on the end result. Not to talk about who the two opponents (in Warsong) are. Maybe they are me and you, or maybe they are me and me ... Does these things matter? Teoretically yes. If someone start doing Battlegrounds with a new character from L1 and do them all the way to L60 (not doing any quest), they will have a L60 character with ALL the quest left. And at L60 you get "gold" instead of XP from quests ...

Do NOT unite the World chat during this, or any other chat or situation! There is already channel Diplomacy for those who wish to communication cross fraction.

Hello! Remember that the XP gaining will only be active during this week, it's just to give a little incentive. The XP gaining is so low that it's just not worth to level only doing that, unless you want, of course. Also, wintrading in BGs is forbidden, so don't worry about that, if we ever see that happening will take actions, for sure.

How do you defeat someone in one versus one Warsong Gulch if they have a fantastic movement speed advantage on you? If you can't, why is there one versus one? They can get your flag and stall you forever.

I'd suggest having those start with at least 4 people (2 on each side) at least, alas, it's not for me to decide.

Maybe add mercenary mode/crossfaction during the time of the event?

It's not easy to implement cross-faction BGs, sadly.

Are there plans for another pvp week during July, or any standard frequency for these?

We don't have planned when will the next PvP week be, but it will happen at some point again, yup. It's meant to be more or less recurrent.
