Wow! Monday night 5s just got a whole lot spicier!
Personally, I wouldn’t be opposed to this. The PvP community is pretty small on my server, but it’s nice to get to know each other and try to encourage more people to join us by building and fostering that community (a major part of what makes Classic Classic, imo).
I imagine that Blizzard may have some data that suggests people are quitting the game or that more people would subscribe if they do this than if they don’t.
Oh dang. This is for WotLK. I thought the person I was responding to was talking about making cross faction BGs and Arena the default that would happen without even opting into cross faction PvP for Dragonflight.
The fact these changes are actually for WotLK is not a good sign. Yikes.
When they first announced this, I tried it on the PTR and there was a way to avoid the restriction so you could get into the the same dungeon with a toon from another realm. Unfortunately, it’s been fixed, but the capability to do PVE instances is definitely there.
Yes but cross realm, queue from anywhere, low wait times, repeating content without lockouts, and instant teleporting to content is for PVP players.
PVE players need to have communities, guilds, and most importantly lots of waiting. If they didn’t have to do that, imagine what would happen? They could play the game they wanted to play…Whenever they wanted to!
