Incentive for world PVP's already in 1.11. It's called, "Better honor at Light Hope's Chapel than grinding battlegrounds." Man, we ganked so many suckers yesterday in-between owning crystals and getting raped by undocumented huge AQ40 boss changes.
What does killing the crystals do anyway?
Anyways, I quit WoW last week, finally cancelling my money drain account (barely played). Once 1.2 hits, I may reinstall and reinstate. We got a shitload of new transfers to our dead server (one of the reasons why i quit) and many major guilds transferred (such as "Fix Cthun or we quit" DnT).
From what I've heard, the cross realm BG system will absolutely rock if implemented flawlessly (chance of that happening, .001%). This will absolutely rock in 60 BG's because it should limit 60 pug's in blues and greens verse epicced out guilds. This should make for much more even matchups. I can't see it doing that much in the 20-59 brackets except keep the levels closer to even on average. What this should also do is limit stupid fucking forum bickering and eliminate topics as X guild rocks Y guild in BG since the group you face might be unheard of on your realm. Better matches = less chances of other people afk'ing out. I also wouldn't mind someway to fuck over the CP farmers who sit there and do nothing. I am 99% sure nothing like this would be implemented, but it'd be nice.
The only thing I'm wondering about is exactly how will the bg's be implemented? If I queue up, could I be thrown in with people from ANY realm? Or will it be a bunch of people from my realm vs random people from another realm? It'll be interesting to see.
World PvP might be nice. I'll hold judgement until they release more information. I wonder how this will effect normal servers, if at all, since they are always unflagged (everyone gets flagged when entering this area perhaps?). Either way, it could be fun. Seems like it would only effect 60's though. Not much x<60 people could do against epicced out people. I made a pre-made on the test realm and it taught me how much gear really matters.
As for the rogue review, I hope they don't get buffed too much. I hate rogues (and i'm aware that 90% of the people on this forum play rogues). I wonder if it'll go back to being like back in the day when it felt like 20-25% of the realm pop were rogues.
