    Default Battle Grounds - Best thing ever

    no really best thing EVER , BG makes sliced bread look like that wizard you invite to group who gets out parsed by the healer.

    1) you get to kill people. simple and self explanatory.

    2) unlike pvp servers (which i play on too no prob with them), you respawn somewhat close to the combat and your using pve rules none of this half damage half heals or other bullshit rules i dont like in pvp, BG is straight up pve mode against other people. when your warlock kills the entire group stepping off the lift in central tower in one shot it makes my day.

    3)the gear, looks great and some of it has cool effects too, yet not over the top.

    4) you get to kill people form the other servers. i view this as a bone to the hardcore 6 year players. many many raiders have played on many many servers over the years and know about the eq2 community as a whole rather than just our local. and now we get to extract revenge for being robbed of that essential upgrade in T5/6/7/8 or what ever your grudge is.

    5) every class is capable. im sorry if i can top kill lists as a cleric you can 2, stop whining and learn to fucking play. the number of whining bitches in chat or forums is unreal. look we all get one shotted or ganged up on and make mistakes it happens to all of us, now take that dirty blood soaked rag out of your fucking vaginas and man up and play. if you dont like it ...dont play. real simple.

    6) takes skill. if you spend some time developing stratagies and planning and lookign at your class and gear you can make the rigth choices and when you solo that entire group on your own and take a point on your fuckign on you will feel awsome.

    7) rounds are about the right time, even if you get rolled the rounds dont last that long and you still get a reward. i like the one token even if you lose concept because occasionally theres absolutly nothing you can do to prevent the loss. if your grouped with the token farmers form the bazaa then your fucked in gears, and other examples. i think the rule set is just fine.

    sony did a good job on the ideas and when the servers are up (fuckign rediculous if you as me) its great fun. alot of the hardcore raiders dont play out side raid hours, now they do and that is a blessing in its self.

    i hate sony for a living...but i have to give them this one. BG is ace.

    just had to say something lol.

    i must agree with the majority of your post. Alot of things SOE does just pisses me off but this was the best thing they've done for this game. I have guildies who were like meh i'll try it out but not gonna be all hardcore with it. Next thing you know these are the same guys who are up til the early morning hours consistently going in and out of the BG's.

    I just hope they can make it so to your guild you don't appear as logging in and out and would be nice if it shows you which BG you in etc. Right now that is my main gripe.

    I wish it was less buggy, and I don't do it all the time but it is really fun when it works.
    Lets play some League of Legends

    Biggest things that need to be fixed.

    1. If you go in as a grp, you should remain as a grp.
    2. When you are done with a match, you should not have to make a macro and re-invite everyone.
    3. Make everyone have to join VC without the ability to disable it. You dont have to talk, just listen.
    4. Battleground Stats site.
    5. Fix the dead time of just sitting there to be warped back to your world, sometime you are in BG waiting wayyyy too long. Should be instant.
    6. Unreal announcer? Hmm, that could actually be fun.
    7. Fix the UI instability. Having to reset it, losing all of your AA's while you zone in.....(Happened to me 2 days ago).
    8. A Real voting tool to get noobs out of the BG.
    9. I want to see people get achievements/leveling/AA's in the BG when I am looking at /guild.

    I'm sure there are more I could not think of.

    After thinking about the UT Announcer, make new achievements based off of that. Say you're fighting by a cliff and you punt someone over. The Announcer could say "Cliff Diving Noob"! which is an unlock or something similar. Could be fun to make as a coder if you brainstorm.
