What you're asking for is a straight Death Match type of Battleground. I'm not sure it would be compelling as you think. I'm a big fan of DM as well, at least in FPS', but for an MMO like World of Warcraft, I question how enjoyable it would be in the long run for people. I think for players who feel very comfortable with their abilities, straight head on PvP like that would be fun for them, but for others, I'm not sure it would have the same appeal.That said, I'm not killing the discussion. I'm just interested in how you feel this would work or appeal to a wide enough audience for it to be worth creating.


I wouldn't hold your breath.

If what I like is only going to appeal to a very small pool, then I know what I want may be a bit more selfish than what's beneficial to the larger populace and the health of the game over all.

Let's be honest here. It seems like a fun idea but it will just get boring.


Really, you would get sick of AV turtles? I know I wouldn't! And if you do, it's something you wouldn't have to participate in. Hell, they could take TB and make it CRZ

As a healer, this would be a terrible thing and nearly exclude us...

How do you figure? It would be nothing like Temple where healers don't matter with the crit numbers..

Please DO make a DM bg!

Then all those midiots could queue for this snoozefest while the players who enjoy going for objectives can queue for all the other BGs.

I love healing RBGs. It's the only time I actually feel like a healer and a majority of the time it's battling, not doing objectives. Well, it's battling /on/ objectives, I guess that's sort of both. Anyways, I don't see why a deathmatch battleground would be terrible for healers. Unless you mean a free-for-all, then yes it would be horrible, but I don't think that's what you meant.

...Was it?

Not what I meant. Healers are pretty important in a deathmatch BG.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deathmatch_(gaming)

Deathmatch or Player vs All (PvA, also called DM or free-for-all) is a widely-used gameplay mode integrated into many shooter and real-time strategy (RTS) video games. Normally the goal of a deathmatch game is to kill (or "frag", from the military term) as many other players as possible until a certain condition or limit is reached, commonly being a frag limit or time limit. Once one of these conditions is met, the match is over and the winner is the player that accumulated the greatest number of frags.


Perhaps you should clarify instead of using the garbled vernacular of the ignorant masses then, Jughead.

Seeing as how I compared it to AV turtles...and TB..how would anyone think I meant free-for-all?

And why would anyone complaining about premades ever mean more than 5? Or less than 5? Or even 5?

A lot of people wanting a "death match" BG want exactly that wiki definition, since that actually is what the term refers to. Saying you want a death match too but MEANING something else doesn't really help you.

Or Blizz.
Or anyone possibly OK with yours but opposed to the standard definition... like any healer whatsoever.

So maybe call it something else. Blizz is probably too referring to the OTHER type when balking at it.

So maybe clarify and redefine. Eh?

mmm nope, when I or anyone else refers to it, it means TEAM deathmatch...not free-for-all. I would never advocate for free-for-all.

The thing is, most BGs degrade into deathmatches anyhow. People fight on roads in AV and AB, no one cares about the nodes. People fight in the middle in WSG. Blizz. People really try to avoid most objectives and just rush to the end or just just fight on the roads. Also, don't forget, someone gets the dull job of guarding junk. In a death match, you wouldn't get that boring job.
