Check if Wargame or Normal Battleground?

UI and Macro
Is there a way to discern if you are in a Wargame or not?

via LUA, obviously.
Bump.
I'm not sure I understand, don't you have to specifically queue for Wargames? Also doesn't the little scoreboard tell you?

Obviously, but I'm looking for a way to check via LUA.

Well that link was useless. I'd appreciate if people actually knew what they were linking before posting it.
Bump.
Have you looked at the UI source to see how the scoreboard tells whether or not you're in a Wargame or not (if it does)? I had a look earlier, but I don't PvP much and I couldn't see anything.

Bump. Looking through what Choon posted but still having trouble finding anything.

I'm starting to think Blizzard wasn't intelligent enough to even include something like this in the API :/
That's cause world PvP where everyone knew everyone else died with vanilla pretty much. It would have been awesome then but in this day of LFGs and LFRs, nobody even thinks about it, let alone knows members of opposing faction (or a rival guild) and has enough motivation for wargames.
Maybe a pvp or an rp server...
I mean it's great as an option, I just don't think people think about it enough anymore.

Wrong thread?
You were wondering whether they forgot to include the check. I was saying that premade wargames are so rare these days, I wouldn't be surprised.
Bump.
