At least Wintersgrasp spreads people out across the entire map. Ashran is 90% a middle of the road zergfest that leaves very few options for melee dps like ferals and rogues.
As for choosing random over a specific BG, I thought you get more honor and conquest winning randoms. Same concept as doing random dungeons instead of choosing specific ones. At least it used to be that way back in the day. I’m not home right now to test it out so maybe it changed. If that’s the case when I get home, I’ll never choose random again for epic BGs.
Guard Solar Sphere down in the mines with your life. Use speed boosts to get there asap. It might be boring but you’ll be far from useless. And if your team does control it all game and loses, you can blame it all on them
If you don’t know what it is, while your team controls it everyone has +20% haste. It’s worth it for 1 or 2 players to guard it. Preferably players like frail melee that struggle in team fights.
WorldPvP already touched on this already (only 20% used it) but to add to that, they also split the queues between epic and normal. Everything used to be together as one. So a lot of people would either blacklist epics to get more normal, or blacklist normal BGs to get more epics.
And how harmful would it be to let us ban 1 BG from our entire queue? At least this would give the devs a real perspective on what players DO NOT want. And while we are on the subject of epic BGs, they should bring back Tol Barad.
specific queueing 2 bgs blacklists everything else, i don’t mind playing every bg except eots/seething. Can’t get a gilneas if i’m queueing warsong/tp but if i queue random then i get 3 eots in a row against full knock teams
I think you also lose the 15conq for winning possibly
I wouldn’t mind something like a random queue but you select bg priorities, so you wouldn’t outright be preventing getting a queue pop but the queue may skip you for an eots if theres an ab coming up in a minute. But if there werent enough players for an ab then you’d get the eots pop (this would work better if bgs could pool from both alliance and horde numbers to fill)
No problem. I’ll just semi afk through each Ashran, especially ones that are heading into the loss column. If they are going to waste my time by forcing me to join it, then I’ll find something more interesting to do while sitting in there.
