Let us know where you are at any time in that 2 week period and let's see how much you "care" then :)

"us"

no balls to face me 1v1, that's cute. baddie dk hides behind other baddies. cute.
This reminds me of Southshore vs. Tarren Mill battles. I'm not a fan of max level pvp, but awesome is awesome. I suck at pvp, but the RP seems too good to resist.
Ima happy pvper

Illidan, US Server readys the horn of war!

Isn't Illidan, US like literally 99% horde? Not much of a world PvP server..........

Not to mention Arthas, US, the realm OP is on, has a horde population of 209,068 characters and an alliance population of 42,816. You people talk about world PvP but pay on these servers that HEAVILY favor your faction. You don't want world PvP you just wanna push the handycaped kid down the stairs. Go play on Emerald Dream if you wanna PvP their horde:alliance population looks like this 167,296:192,176. Looks like WAY more of a fair fight to me.


Hope you got that same amount of fire in ye when we invade your server, steal your children and eat your wives. The Horde comes for you!

This is a game of warcraft there has yet to be a true war between players large enough to last more then 1 hour since Vanilla WoW

WRONG

During last days of MoP Darkspear had 4 guilds battle for Halaa for over 3 days long
over 3k people on alliance and horde had 4 multiboxers and 2 full guilds.

so yeah
we actually had world war
we actually stopped servers once or twice


I love stuff like that, We had a server war going on like that in tol Barad, a gloriously fun sunday afternoon. We used hgwt to bring more and more people in on both sides, kiting each others groups to each other's bases to gain the advantage of faction guards helping us.

@ all you haters... BAH! to hell with you I say...
FUN FACT: During the World War event, several hundred players will be forming Bodyguard and defense groups. Their job: to defend cities and to escort the precious cargo "you" ... You the leveler are now the MVP of level 100 raid teams, being supported by healers, guarded by tanks, and getting cover fire from dps. Is there flying in the zone? Great! You can now call air strikes on enemy units, in real time! RP-PVP is for the win!

It's just plain AWESOME SAUCE! It's sad that no one ever reads the best part of a thread.... so I put it up near the top.

I'm covering 100% every aspect and possible scenario of this event. I'm also explaining how to form groups entire 40 man raid teams in less then 30 seconds. How to effectively, win PVP battles with a variety of group make-ups. I'm also updating this daily.

You need to read the thread to figure all this out. SO DO IT! before you troll please.

HATERS JUST BE HATERS..... B|


Schitz not given. I will say this. If your shenanigans interrupts zones, there will be tickets submitted.

Of course it won't be a real world war until millions are permanently dead, the bodies of civilians, children, laying all about, massive destruction everywhere.

Unless you're just talking about some massive WPvP event where your play style gets to interrupt everyone else's.

==================================================================
  • SERVER BREAKDOWN OF WORLD PVP ON ARTHAS
  • ==================================================================

    Server Breakdown: ARTHAS
    A bit into why I'm making this event. World pvp on Arthas is not what it use to be, and many other pvp servers are the same. High Population vs Low Population just like Arthas... This event will fix the High VS Low population threshold for world pvp. If a single 1 person anywhere wants to world PVP they can now easily form a 40 man raid team in seconds with this Uniform Premade group name approach. If there's no one to fight on your server. Join up with via the premade finder and start a war!

    Horde World PVP = Hundreds of PvP guilds, BG's, RBG's, Arenas, Premades, City attacks, random world PvP, daily ganking of Moddex, etc...

    Alliance World PVP = The only world pvp is 1 rogue named Moddex. "Respect". All day, every day, one Alliance Rogue, just keeping it real! The only thing he does is world PvP ganking. Nonstop ganking to anyone and everyone. No matter the odds this rogue will go on killing sprees in the middle of cities and high horde populated areas. And usually makes a clean getaway.

    Being a Horde player on Arthas, I wish we had more Alliance players like Moddex. YOU HEAR THAT! I'm calling you out Alliance! All you PVPers out there with your blue banner's toting For The Alliance... Transfer or roll a character on Arthas and help Moddex gank us. A LOT! Make us so angry and hate filled that we form raids and fight back, just like the good ole days.

    Please and Thank you
    VVAR-ARTHAS

  • I never ever post, but THIS is so awesome, I had to. THANK YOU to the OP, this is going to be a lot of fun and I will tattle to as many as I can tattle to and participate as much as I can. Thank you very much for your planning and coordination efforts. I'm looking forward to this.
    Can the servers handle an event of this scale? I can only imagine the lag would be insane.
    YES!!!!! this would be so cool man i miss wpvp in large scales hope it turns out great sounds amazing
    I think I am in love.
    The servers will crash. I don't even know why this got an endorsement. .....

    Yes, it looks like an awesome event but there is no way whatever realm it's on isn't going to crash UNLESS bLIZZ allocates specifically to support the event. If Blizz does that then WHY THE HELL CAN'T EMERALD DREAM have largescale wpvp any night we want without crashing zones?
    This is not on 1 REALM this is CROSS SERVER

    Three things...
    1. This is not on 1 server this is running on the 200+ cross realm servers. Look in premade finder TO JOIN A GROUP. If the server is HIGH POP ENEMY FACTION chances are response times will be fast. If the server is low pop enemy faction faction, the only thing the enemy has to do is have 1 person LITERALLY 1 person make a WORLD PVP GROUP and BAM! 40 man raid team to fight

    2. Latency and Lag settings are in place via the event rules to keep battles well under 1000 participants in most areas. If your experiencing high latency or lag PLEASE LEAVE THE GROUP / ZONE to destress the server. there will be several hundred World PVP groups during the event. Just pick another one that's less laggy.

    3. Emerald Dream, the battles from what i've heard of in the past are generally held specifically in a few zones. Prior to cross realm. In this event... go out to BFE places like old nagarand, vashj'ir, old dalaran, caverns of time, hellfire pen, totally random places to keep the event Spread out and lag free.

    Theres really no need to have more then 10 raids of the same faction in any one zone. Two to four 40 mans per faction would be ideal. This allows for flanking, ganking, and maneuvering throughout the zone and an almost lag free environment. *if your personal computer can handle the spell effects.*

    Wait what?


    yeah, I'm with you on this one...I tried reading the text, and maybe it's just me and that I'm just a bit too tired to read properly...but I'm not even sure what this is. :(

    all I got from it, was "PvP event", and I'm just like

    http://media.giphy.com/media/cUENbkNb804U0/giphy.gif

    I understand, that I can hang out in my Garrison, Dalaran or Shatratth to avoid PvP in this case being, but...if I'm on a PvE server, wouldn't that kinda nullify the whole aspect of PvP? Or is Blizzard actually turning all servers into PvP for the duration of this "world war event" of sorts?

    Again...I'm tired, I feel like crap, my mind is an absolute cluster *truck horn* of a mess with recent events, so forgive me for not detecting oblivious troll/sarcasm posts. :(

    The reasoning is because everyone is in the same area and on the same server.. if you split the attack force across many servers. it will lower the resources needed to maintain the server and prevent crashing.

    If your on a super high pop server like emerald dream it is recommended you join other servers to PVP during this event via the premade finder. its across every zones. the more ground the battles cover the less lag there will be.

    If your on a PVE server it will mostly work like this... *open premade finder* type WORLDPVP on custom tab, press find group *** join one of thousands of groups on PVP servers, and participate in PVP

    If you are on a PVE server, and well lets say you want to bring some world PVP there. Create a group on the pvp custom tab, WORLDPVP etc. etc., and players across the world will join your group to wreck face on your PvE server, for the limited world event time frames @ 12:00pm, 6:00pm, 12:00am, 6:00am, for a few hours. **times may vary** I am currently awaiting a response from blizzard, on the recommended times we can *wage war*, on PVE servers. On PVP servers you basically have free reign, aside from spawn camping the same person for several days.

    As long as @ least 1 person on either faction of the server lists a WorldPVP group during the war. THERE WILL BE A BATTLE. as long as people know how to create and search for the groups.

    Little do they know the ramifications of this event.... the groups are called "worldpvp" so... before and after the event, if people keep making and joining these groups "worldpvp", There will be world pvp going on in all servers everywhere! All the time! long after the event is over! *** GASP! IT'S ALIVE! IT'S ALIVE! WE CREATED A PVP MONSTER!***

    The ability do do this and other things are always there. It's just about making people aware of the tools and being able to use them effectively to "Play together".

    As for the "PVP all the time! everywhere!" comment that I just made... Many players like to raid/arena/rbg/pve/dungeon/tmog and all sorts of things. There will not be nearly as many players wanting to WPVP after the event because they got their fix. Maybe 0-4 raids per server tops in a random zone out in the boonies. *nothing to cry over* "oh look a battle over there, ill just continue my questing, and notify players in chat of the battle"

    *NOTE*: I need to add this to the main post somewhere O.o...

    No they can't.

    If there is any form of phasing 2 raids will shut down a lot of areas and make them unplayable. The idea that 10 to 20 forty man raids can fit into a zone is preposterous.

    Blizzard servers are some of the worst at handling mass players.
    @ AOTABO
    According to the rep's i spoken with. Increasing server support for a zone can be arranged if the event is large enough and you plan it enough in advance. If they have an idea of the load they can use preventative measures.

    I know for certain I recommended people to stay away from zones with phasing areas. Because it can cause issues with world pvp.
    I can't wait this will be fun!
