    Default How to Fix Battlegrounds

    My proposal on how to fix battlegrounds

    Change 1 - BG Gear looses all stats outside of Battegrounds and becomes appearance gear. The only exceptions would be Dueling and the rare occasion that someone actually uses the Arena.

    Change 2 - Goal Tracking. Battlegrounds would have to keep track of more stats, such as killing an enemy flag carrier, healing a team member who is actually in combat, helping take a checkpoint, time spent holding onto the relic, and staying with your group. Meeting goals would award a teamwork score that can be used toward the following change-

    Change 3 - Token System. The Loosing team gets no tokens. The winning team gets 2 tokens. Additional tokens are awarded on the individual level according to teamwork and other score related bonusses. If you lose, but play well you can still possibly manage a token or 2.

    Change 4 - More Variety. A Battle Royale - Free for All style deathmatch. A Raid vs Raid scenario, with 2 dragons, the first raid to kill their respective dragon wins.

    Change 5 - Arena Champions in BGs! Well this one is optional, but I think Arena Champions was a cool idea that was kinda left in the garage and forgotten about. Could be craftable, questable, raid dropped, and faction Arena Champions.

    How are battlegrounds broken at the moment? Apart from the fact that as an EU server player I only ever get Gears popping and even then its the same 10-20 people playing in a loop and we just end up switching teams about a bit.

    Change 1 is pretty dumb in my opinion considering most of the BG gear is better than raid gear. If you're too stupid not to shoot for the gear then it's your own damn fault. Also even as a hardcore raider it's so dumb to whine about that. Seriously, if you're gonna bitch about gear start bitching about how shitty the loot tables from hard mode raid mobs are in comparison to their easy mode counterparts just sayin.

    You mean outside the huge item exploit that everyone is using that should've resulted in BGs being shut down until it was fixed?

    BGs do not have enough incentive to win. The gear being usable in PVE gives players incentive to queue up, but not necessarily incentive to play well.

    I'd rather there not be any gear at all, and have BGs simply be the Arena 2.0, with cross server matches. This way it's something to do with your buddies, or have some grudge matches, and overall something to do for fun after raids or whatever.

    I don't know about you but I queue up to win especially since winning allows you to get geared up 3x faster than those who lose just sayin. Also if there were no rewards involved Battlegrounds would just be another arena..dead as fuck.

    YOU may want to win... hell I want to win too, but it's a FACT that there is not enough incentive to win, otherwise you wouldn't have people who exploited the AFK shard system.

    And I understand that they need loot in order to encourage more players to participate, but I think the cross server capabilities gave it enough of a fun factor, to keep enough people doing it.
