[TW] Reduce team minimum required players in BGs to 2v2.

#1 » Post by Regent » 06 May 2018 12:53

Hi,

Just as the title states, please reduce the minimum required players in AV / IOC / SOTA / AB / EOTS / WSG to 2v2.
I believe it's set to 2v2 only for WSG at the moment but I could be wrong.

It's already a major pain to just get people to queue up for battlegrounds. So it's really annoying when BGs start ending even if the teams are already 3v3 or 4v4 in BGs like AV or IOC.

We simply do not have the population numbers to have more people queue up for RBG, so let us at least have a BG running as long as it's 2v2 so we can at least have SOME action.

Regards.

+1 from me, its annoying getting a BG just to play 5 min and back to waiting. :cross:

More uptime on BGs please :tick:

Happy to +1 and it's easy to implement. Will wait for some more feedback just to be sure this is universal, but I'd love seeing more activity in BGs again, even if they're small 2v2s.

There's problems running big maps with low player count, just Imagine SoTA.

+1 for WSG/AB

I don't think every bg should be 2v2 however Eots/AB/sota/IoC can be played with 3v3 and AV 4v4.

-1 from me to to reduce every bg to 2v2
+1 from me to reduce as I suggested. (wsg 2v2, Eots/AB/Sota/IoC 3v3 and AV 4v4)

+1 from me. I can see the issue with having 2v2 AV since it can't be won unless prot + healer. But lowering the amount of players it takes for bg's to be open would be really great.

Sure some bg's will be changed a bit like sota, it will be hard destroying machines without turrets as 2v2 but it still beats having a bg close after 5 min.

Seeing how Rbg is required to be 6 ppl in que to start, I guess reducing every bg to 3v3 without closing could be the best.
Mandatory Character List:
Zortax - Fury/Prot
Zortix - Boomkin/Restoration
Zortex - MM
Thepower - Ele/Restoration
Elfen - Prot/Ret
Discbelf - Shadow/Disc
Deathen - Frost/Hybrid
Oombacca - Restoration
Kelbert - Demonology
Froxy - Arcane/Fire

May we have a decision soon please? Preferably in less than a week.
4 BGs in a row just ended despite several people playing due to the team quotas not being filled.
Strike while the iron is hot (or lukewarm in TW's case).

Such a gameplay change should never be rushed.

You for real? Such a gameplay change? Man the population on TW atm is such that we never used to have bgs. The fact that there are bgs now is proof enough that there is interest in it but as previously stated, BGs cannot be played because of the player quotas not being filled. What is there to discuss? From what I garner and correct me if I am wrong but it seems as though that you staff rather there be no BGs and be blizzlike than have BGs (for the benefit of the playerbase I may add) and not be 'bilzik'. I suggest putting WSG, AB, and EOTS at 2v2 while SOTA, IOC and AV be booted up to 3v3.

Take forever to implement this and you'll just do more harm than good as usual when the players who ACTUALLY play on the realm bring valid suggestions to improve quality of life for the players. Lets not forget about the long lost Forors Crate. Just my 2 cents.

No offense, but it's exactly this type of thinking that ruined the population here (suggestions to improve the server taking forever to be implemented).
And then, they're finally implemented when it's too late and doesn't even matter anymore.
There's a fine line between wanting to be fair to everyone by giving them a chance to state their opinion and waiting needlessly to take definitive action on an issue that is blatantly obvious and needs to be dealt with (especially when it's unanimously agreed that it is, in fact, in issue).

Do something fast or let history repeat itself.

My understanding is that this is not hard to implement, its not a project that will take a dev days of hard work to complete and end up being a failure. So if implementing this ends up being a total disaster and horrible idea, you can easy reverted back. So I don't see the point in waiting.


If people end up hating it, I'm sure they'll come and complain. And we can all blame Regent for his horrible ideas. :tick:

True, cant see the reason why to wait..
Most of the tw WOTLK players dont visit forums anyway since we dont have any major update or any future plan to make this realm GRATE again..
So just do it and let us PvP in peace.

Staff is working in a very dedicated behavior to launch a project which goal is to make the realm "grate" again.
But yes, I understand your people's concerns and therefor I'll make sure this will not be delayed.
