New BGs...

Battlegrounds
I know not everyone is 90 yet, and for those that are, the crafter gear is the best pvp stuff we can get but...

How do you 90s like the 2 new BGs?

For me so far, Kotmogu is awesome, Silvershard cool, but a little... crowded maybe. I like that they both have PvP oriented goals in them that keep combat pretty consistent.

So, what does the rest of the BG community think?
Kotmogu is my new favorite BG. Closest thing to a team deathmatch you are going to find. Pretty straight forward goals too. Get orbs, keep orb carriers alive, obliterate other teams along with everyone else.

Not to mention the damage buffs for being an orb carrier can be pretty fun. Till you get to that point where your taking insane damage.

Just crit an orb holder for 244k with mind blast, just after taking a 180k chaos bolt while holding. Big fun.

I already put Kotmogu on downvote. It's not a BG, it's a 10v10 arena match, but if one team has more healers than the other, or a team is generally weak, it just turns into a one-sided honor farm.

There is no objective. Farming kills is not objective play. It's not fun.

The mines, though, even being on the losing side, is lots of fun.

This is what I've been waiting for :) I was hoping blizz would finally put in a deathmatch type bg
I just got done playing the Temple one, 4 flags and the object is fight in mid..omg i drooled on myself ...had no idea what was going on...but man I had so much fun.
Kotmogu is possibly the best BG they've ever released and comes extremely close to arathi basin in terms of fun

Silvershard mine is also fantastic but I haven't gotten to play it much especially now since its kotmogu weekend.

I think the key thing that makes both of these bgs awesome is NONSTOP action, you never get into the slump where you are just running from base to base looking for people to fight

Or have to sit at a base defending because no one else will (while it's not getting attacked). That is the worst.
I've enjoyed both BG's.

The silvershard mines is a frenzy, and I like it.

ToK is excellent in layout, design, and function. Haven't won in either one yet, but I think that both are great additions to the battlegrounds.

Can't tell you how many times I've had to do this crap. With only 1-2 healers in the BG, no one will take the reins and defend so I can go out and DO MY F'N JOB.
Moar fail.
Did 2 Silvershard mines and it is already blacklisted its sota version 2.0

NO WAY. Silvershard Mines is one of the best bgs ever. Not too many people, 3 different resources that has to be looked upon ALL TIMES, which means zerg fest wont help so people have to stay defending.

I've been having lots of fun, just the endless bg bug wasn't fun.
