BG: The Battle for Hillsbrad

I posted this in the General Forums, but i meant it to go in here... ( senility catching up)

Blizz, please make us a BG where there are no flags to capture, no bases to hold, no walls to knock down and no siege engines to ruin the fun..

You already have the perfect instance, just convert "Old Hillsbrad" to a BG, " The Battle for Hillsbrad"

All we want to do is kill the opposition in BG's anyway, so make it a timed event, like 20 minutes, the side with the most kills at the end of 20 mins, is the winner.

We wouldn't have to worry about players not "defending the flags", or "farming kills in mid field", as the idea of the BG would be simply to kill the opposition, without no flag, siege engine, walls, mine carts etc etc..

It would bring back the fun we had in Vanilla WoW, where we quite often ground the servers to a standstill with the epic battles we used to have at TM & SS.

That, in my opinion, is the way BG's should be..

just make sure you don't screw up and put tenacity balls in it

This would go better with a CoT:Battle for Blackrock BG, the wc2 battle.
I'm not sure that today's players would understand. They would probably think it's too boring.
Temple of Kotmogu is probably as close to that as you're going to get.

Are you kidding me? This is the kind of BG a lot of players only understand. You see them ignoring objectives constantly while just focusing ally/horde.
Old Hillsbrad would be perfect. I really really miss the Southshore vs. Tarren Mill fights pre-cata. That's some of the funner aspects of World PvP that ever existed.

I agree a straight Team Deathmatch BG would be awesome, but 20 minutes may be too long for that sort of BG. I think 10 minutes would be a good length, maybe 15.
sign me up, if it was possible my hunter would have the titles LORD OF HILLSBRAD, DEFENDER OF SOUTHSHORE SLAYER OF HORDE. AHHHHHHHHh /fond sigh.. level 60

I'm going to have to agree with this on principle.
Sorry bro, this makes too much sense to ever happen.
