If you’re listening, then I’m going to help provide some feedback. While I enjoyed AV in the golden days of Vanilla, and with the changes made, it’s non pretty much non-zergable, which is great. But the other 40 man, Isle of Conquest, needs to go. Not many know how to play it, and even if they do, not very well. This makes the entire duration very unpleasant. A lot of people rather afk in the battle then apply themselves.
I enjoyed the 40 mans, they were epic and super fun, but rather than having them in the usual PvP rotation, why not make them weekend only? So many people are okay with AV, but I know the PvP community is pretty unhappy with IoC. With the botters and afkers, it’s not fun and a waste of time. I think with the removal of 40 mans, perhaps, the Dev team could provide us a better 10 man map.
I like Battle of Gilneas and Twin Peaks are very nice, new maps for old favorites. I rather like those and still bear no love for Strand of the Ancient. Vehicle battles are meh, but do able. Eye of the Storm is an interesting blend of WSG and AB, which gives perhaps a new idea for another and new BG.
My idea would be for a BG where there are three main capture points, but like IoC, there can be 2 bonus areas that help buff the team or give additional protection. I think another cool idea would be a much better designs on ‘forts’. Give us a better version of Gilneas, a deeper and bigger map, where we’re using roads, can go by roof, or going through buildings. I think it would be so amazing to have a pretty intense map where there are several routes, but also levels and terrain to use to our advantage.
Another thing that is bothering me is the state of Arena. It seems those with a 3k mmr can have a negative win ratio, but the issue with over all arena system. I rather loved the zero sum system of Burning Crusade. You fought in several team ratings as you went up, making people wanting to preserve their teams.
Now teams are a dime a dozen and with the ‘fix’ to prevent mmr exploit- mind you very late and with NO reset- it seems the ladders are very skewed. I think a soft reset would help, but otherwise… why not go back to the zero sum system? People can still play with friends, but they’re a bit more responsible about preserving their teams or who they play with.
While starting a fresh team might be a hassle, I’m sure many of the high rated players can get those wins in and reclimb in rating.
Thanks for your time and I apologize for my typos.
