If I read correctly, from now on all rated BG weeks will be 10v10.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
