Title: Rated Battle Grounds. (Gauging interests)
Post by: Adhisla on December 16, 2010, 12:07:22 AM
I want to find a group of folks to do BGs with. It is also my understanding that there are other folks who are interested.

It is my understanding that this will be more like raids and dungeons than like arena (that is, not a set team). And folks could sub in and such.


A couple hours one or two nights a week would be great.


Discuss.

I would be interested, time depending. I have not yet started working on acquiring PvP gear yet though, nor practicing with/against new 85 level abilities.

Definitely interested, probably as resto druid.  If there are to many healers, I could try as feral or boomkin.  But I'm willing to devote 1 spec to 'pvp focus'.

I also plan on resto/moonkin this expansion.


This saturday evening, I'm going to try to put together a few rated bg matches. Hopefully around 8 pm, and get a couple games in.


I'm guessing we'll get roflstomped since we haven't played much together. But practice is practice.

Please have a "pvp trinket" or equivalent (http://www.wowhead.com/item=64793), some kind of a move-speed enchant (this one is cheap http://www.wowhead.com/spell=74189, but there's also mastery and agi versions), and at least a couple pieces of resilience gear. Edit: For rated we should really try to have at least all the crafted pieces + some offset pieces if we have the honor for it. I'd like for the first night to be as enjoyable as possible for folks so that folks will come back : )



This means I'm going to have to go farm some leather for crafted pvp gear. fun.

For Rated BG's, do you get to choose the BG you want to do or is it random? If we can choose we should probably pick WSG, and if possible snag a Prot Pally or Feral Druid as the dedicated flag runner.

I think it's random like arena, but not sure.

Super interested on lock and moreso on warrior when I level. Can't make it today though, London Heathrow seems to hate letting people leave.

Hmmm ok. Maybe try again for Tuesday or Wednesday? 8 pm

Will only have to find 10 folks then.

I'm interested, but have just recently hit 85.  I'll see about getting some PVP gear with my stored points.

Not to REVIVAL! this thread, but there has been some talk among Sere Vala people of doing Sunday rated BGs. Over the next few days I'll be figuring out a few details and figuring out how many folks we have interested, but if anyone is still looking to hit up RBGs, drop a line here and I'll add you to the list.

Sign up thread on Sere Vala forums (http://forums.serevala.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4551)
I can copy any sign-ups posted here to the listing there.

I'd likely be interested in trying it out on Ghoselle as restodruid.  I've got moderately good pvp gear.

I would be interested on Kranker.  He likes to freeze stuff on occaision.

To re-REVIVAL! this thread. Did this ever get started up with any group? If so I would be interested in getting involved.

I'm currently out of commission due to shitty internet service until August, but well before that issue popped up, my attempt to gather folks had pretty well died.

It seems like there's a combination effect of having a playerbase that isn't huge on PvP to start (at least among those I tend to play with on ER Alliance) being further winnowed down by the perception that Rated BGs are a lot of organization and coordination for little reward. The fact that 5 arena wins caps out weekly Conquest and are easy to slap together in an hour or two also decreases the reward of RBGs. Esentially the reward of RBGs is a chance to make a run for titles, and I don't think that's much of a draw. Personally, I think it would be a lot of fun, especially given my usual experiences pugging normal BGs vs taking in a small group of friends.

If there's still interest out there, count me among the interested, although as I said, I'm out of commission for another 2 1/2 months.

Feral's PvP viability is questionable these days, to put it mildly, but I still have an interest in rated BGs if you are willing to take on damaged goods and this ever comes to fruition. I also have some pvp contacts I could potentially rope in to participating.

Post by: Gellin on May 24, 2011, 11:42:33 AM
Sorry I didn't reply quicker. Yeah if we could get enough I think it would be great to give it a try. And I think feral would be fine. As long as you don't CCing a bunch. I think some of the ideal specs/classes we need at least one of each is blood dk, frost Mage, and a shaman healer. Other roles can be filled where needed. Like ferals are great node defenders. So let me know if we end up having enough.

Depending on the time, my shamny could heal some rated BGs...or I could dps on my hunter. My shammy will be more involved in arena for S10, though.

Send me a PM if you are interested in rated BGs. I think we have the bulk of a 10 man team together already. Never done this before so really don't know what to expect. Hopefully we can have some fun n' junk.

I'd love to come on Iiar, his main pvp is 3k+ resil as boomkin

I was able to play some RBG's this past Saturday afternoon. They are actually pretty fun, but they are time consuming. We played a total of 13 games and it took about 6 hours. However, you do get a ridiculous amount of rating per game and lose virtually nothing. With 9 wins I'm almost at 1500 RBG rating, and once you get over that your total Conquest Points / Week increases.

If anyone is interested, I'm going to *try* and put together an RBG group tonight (Monday) at 8pm server time.
