5.2 Developer Interviews

Gamebreaker recently got a chance to interview the developers. Below is the PvP summary.
  • Item upgrades returning hasn't been decided upon yet, but it is unlikely that it will come back for PvP gear. It felt good for players to be able to upgrade their blue gear and have a high enough item level to do heroic dungeons or LFR, but it didn't feel good trying to figure out how to spend your Valor Points. Partial refunds or transferring upgrades from one item to another are potential solutions. Item upgrades were helpful in allowing guilds to continue progressing by slowly making the players stronger.
  • Reverting the silence and crowd control changes from early in the PTR was done to prevent healers from becoming too strong with the various instant heals they have. This kind of a change might be made in the next expansion.
  • There aren't enough rewards for PvP that are not gear.
  • The Conquest catch up system wasn't ready for this patch, but it will hopefully be in Patch 5.3.
  • Skirmishes are still on the todo list.

I hate skirimishes, they are a waste of time and space. They should be deleted from the game.

I found skirmish was great for testing things such as a newly set up ui or keybinds etc. I cant remember if it matched you against people with your mmr or completely random

This is the big exciting news? Might as well have sneezed on a napkin and showed us a picture, for all the hype on twitter about this. =/
I was expecting rated pet battlegrounds and 3v3 pet battles, always prepared for the worst. Guess it's not all bad.

It was random, which also was the charm about skirmishes. You could either meet gladiator experienced players or a first timer.

Pretty sure it was random.  I had so much fun trying to "queue" into Billian/Abni just to watch myself get raped on stream.
