Why couldn't you just leave it alone?

Battlegrounds
It was bad enough that you added a timer to WSG to begin with. You reduced it back down to 20 minutes last hotfix. Are you serious? I know you think PvP is a joke but for some people it's the only reason we pay for your regressive game.

Remove the timer. Stop making BGs more casual/fast, and revert the stupid changes you've made.

Set back the resources/reinforcements to 2k for AB/EotS
Remove the WSG timer.
Fix AV.

Step it up, Blizzard, your sub numbers are already dropping as it is.

except blizz sub numbers are over 10k again lol
Aren't you the Sherlock. Every expansion brings back a significant number of people initially. The numbers will drop back down by the middle of the expansion.

Blizzard issued a press release today saying they’d also sold 2.7 million copies of the new expansion, prior to the Chinese launch on October 2nd. That includes both digital and retail sales, but wasn’t enough to top previous expansion first-week sales for Cataclysm and Wrath of the Lich King.


The numbers are bad news, not good.

You have yet to give an actual reason for why the shorter games are worse, other than faulty attribution.
Don't fix it if it isn't broken.

Tell me why longer games were worse. People enjoyed them, and I didn't see complaints about them at all. Blizzard is only doing this to stuff their own pockets with casuals' money. Shorter games, faster honor, faster gearing, etc.
I don't mind the timer. I definitely don't miss hour long WSG matches.

I miss 2-hour long graveyard camping.

I don't.
I do miss 2 hours of back and forth in the 19 bracket.

You don't speak for everyone. Let's be honest, YOU don't like it.

BTW, random BGs are supposed to be casual. Competitive --> RBGs and arenas.

Um. So-called "competitive" BGs ALSO have those timers you know...
Why the heck would you want a long wsg game?

Yeah it might occasionally be fun if you are completely done with your honor/CQ/rating grind and don't care but the vast majority of your fellow players in that bg are doing it for the end reward to some degree.

20 minute timer is fine.

Its the same as wishing we could have a longer time limit on arena games. Nobody wants that. You are a very small minority wanting longer wsg games.

NICE
omfg that mog set. OldSkool right there.
WSG and its clone are the worst 2 bg's. The shorter they make those horrible games the better.
