We’ve heard a majority of majority faction players (Horde) telling us they prefer same-faction battlegrounds (Horde vs. Horde) after our first test! Surprised that Horde likes a change that benefits Horde? Us too!
Turns out Alliance REALLY didn’t like same faction battlegrounds, because they hated playing each other and we just seemed to get negative feedback from them when they experienced it. Regardless, a majority of players (Horde) liked fighting their same faction (Horde), and they’re the majority, so yeah
Remember how much fun General Discussion was during BfA with Warmode because of incentive imbalances? We’re using Modern Technology to bring that, too, to The Burning Crusade Classic!
We’re worried players might all flock to the majority faction. So, rather than letting long queue times incentivize them to switch factions organically, we’re going to remove queue times altogether and rid the game of one of the few natural balancing factors! However, in lieu of this we’re going to be bringing back lower-faction Warmode Bonuses, but this time, for battlegrounds! FOR THE ALLIANCE!!! bur
WE DON’T ANTICIPATE THIS WILL FURTHER EXACERBATE THE SAME-FACTION PROBLEM, WHICH IS WHAT WE’RE WORRIED ABOUT IN THE FIRST PLACE™
