It would be easy to make the mistake of thinking that the new Random Battleground interface is just LFD for Battlegrounds.
Well, because it is the same thing… but.. BUT!
There is one fundamental difference… actually, there are two…
Nearly everyone “grew up” doing the instances, most of you wouldn’t dare set foot in a battleground before until one of your mates said…
Battlegrounds are easy – Honor falls from the sky – Honor buys gems – Gems give money – therefore Money is falling from the sky!
Please tell me about your mates, all their details including home address because I am going to send someone around to put them down right now…
No seriously, the phone is in my hand, I have an international ring of PvP lovers at my finger tips who would just love to put it into real world action.
The other important reason is this.
In a 5 man instance, with players that are clearly overgeared for the instance, one or two relatively AFK players wont cause a issue, because we are playing against the AI.
No matter how badly you perform, you still get your Emblems at then end.
In battleground you count, everyone on your team counts, because you aren’t playing against AI and if you don’t win the battle… you have just wasted everyone’s time.
It’s easy to fix – you have to play to WIN! (more…)
