Since the PvP part of our forums only contains arena discussion i desided to post here instead.

Interesting stuff about future BGs and Wargames! http://blue.mmo-champion.com/t/25170782836/what-s-your-largest-concern-with-rated-bgs/

even moar info:

Battlegrounds - General


* Launching with two battlegrounds: Twin Peaks and the Battle for Gilneas. More to come post-release.
* Twin Peaks will be a capture-the-flag map similar to Warsong Gulch with a few small differences.

o Two graveyards for each faction, with one of them being in the middle of the map. Dying out in the field will cause you to spawn here rather than at your base.
o It's relatively similar in size to WSG, but the field itself is larger, with the bases taking up less space.
o Twin Peaks will NOT be replacing Warsong Gulch like some players were expecting it to.

* Blizzard wants to focus on introducing new BGs to offer a variety of environments, rather than focusing on updating older ones.


Rated Battlegrounds


* Players will participate in rated battlegrounds by forming their raid group prior to joining the queue.
* You will only face off against other rated groups.
* Each week the format for rated battlegrounds will be different. It will rotate between 10, 15 and 25-player battlegrounds.
* Rating loss will not exist until after a certain threshold.
* Conquest points will be rewarded for winning rated battlegrounds.
* There will be a limitation on the number of Conquest points you can earn each week to prevent feeling like you must participate in both arenas and rated battlegrounds.
* There will be end-of-season rewards for rated BG teams similar to arenas:

o The classic Honor titles will be coming back and rewarded to the top teams each season.
o The "Gladiator" equivalent teams will also receive epic ground mounts. Ground mounts because they want to reward something you can ride in the battleground and be proud of / show off.

Yes they did: "The classic Honor titles will be coming back and rewarded to the top teams each season." My guess is that they are refering to the conquest points which u get from rated BGs.

But i rly dont understand "There will be a limitation on the number of Conquest points you can earn each week to prevent feeling like you must participate in both arenas and rated battlegrounds." Do you get Conquest points from arena too? Can u get both gladiator rewards and conquest rewards from Arenas? Or is only one kind of reward, no arena points, only conquest points?

as far as i know. arena and BG reward the SAME type of points. conquest points. u can get a certain MAX ammount of points a week.easier to get if u do both ofc.
theres no arena rating requirement on gear cept the highest weapons i believe.
so ppl that do only BG. will be able to get all gear cept the uber weapons. and in the end of the seasons theres titles from arena and from BGs.
