Apply this to Regular Battlegrounds, not just Rated! The currently broken BG Queue is driving Horde PvPers nuts.

I don't care if it's Alliance or Horde that I'm killing. JUST LET ME PVP!

I wouldn't mind seeing this for regular BGs either. Sure it'll really screw up the whole Alliance VS Horde thing...but more good than bad comes out of it. It'll really only affect those who are used to the old way of things. New players wont even care as they wont know what it was like before they joined.

If this goes live, can i suggest we be allowed to name our RBG teams, and show them instead of our factions? Give us Team Tabards, and like what one poster mentioned show our Team Flag when we cap a base, not our faction's.

Change the perspective that Rated BGs are no longer Horde Vs Alliance, but Team Vs Team.

My two cents.

Control the troublemakers !

Please add a third choice for PVP. Pirate Control. If no faction based que is available after 5 minutes I would be added to this larger que also.

The membership for rebellion control would be anyone else that chooses that option and they can be from any faction plus anyone of the next higher bracket that is poorly geared. Randomly assign me to the pirate team or the enforcer team. Give the pirates the pirate outfit buff.

Blizzard can develop some lore too go with it. Temporary cooperation to control pirates or Booty Bay hires mercenaries to get rid of competition.

Hey here is another idea, this could even be something completly new. A three team BG. Horde vs. Alliance vs. Pirates. The Pirates would be us crazy players from both the Horde and Alliance that form a rebellion against all current authorities.

The PVP Wait times are my biggest complaint. I even canceled my account for awhile because of them. Waiting 40 minutes to play is just to long. And it happens for both my Horde and Alliance toons.

Blizzard loves implementing bandaid fixes that only break the game even more once they wear out. I totally expect this to get implemented in regular BG's shortly after they happen for RBG's.

I don't understand how anyone could be against this change. You can't honestly expect lore to be more important than the satisfaction of players.

hey look!

blizz has dealt with the pvp imbalance.

just eliminate one faction entirely.

wouldn't it have just been easier to create parity between the factions?

I saw this thread and got excited.

Then you said rated battlegrounds. Can I be frank for a minute? Very few people care about rated battlegrounds. By FAR the more popular one that this change should go through on is unrated battlegrounds.

I waste entirely too much of my life sitting in unrated, broken, unrated battleground queues. Making this change on rated BGs proves lore is unnecessary and just gets in the way. Make it happen on both, kthx.

Cool... but it doesn't make any sense.

This is a good idea, but as others have said it does sort of kill the idea of it being representative of the larger scale conflict between horde and alliance
