At the request of various people, we had made forums for each BG... kinda. The way it works is that there is one forum containing a thread for every BG/Bracket combination. The threads all will be titled REGION-BGNAME-BRACKET, making it possible to have a quick way for you to find your BG forum by typing in the name.

Example: http://www.arenajunk.../Bloodlust/5v5/ will take you to the thread for Bloodlust 5v5. If no thread exists, it will take you to the main BG forum category where you should create a thread titled REGION-BGNAME-BRACKET.

If you look at your nav bar, there are quick links for you to get to all of your BG forums.

Hope this helps you schedule times to play and talk to our people in your BG. If you have any other suggestions for how this should work, please feel free to let me know.

looks great, maybe you can have sub forums for each BG so it looks cleaner?

Sub-forum for each bracket imo, like the Arena Discussion one. Just so the main BG Forum doesn't just get cluttered with 3 threads per battlegroup.

That would be 36 sub forums though which would end up really cluttering the main page. =/

EU BG forums will work as well. We have a few thousand EU members. All it does it allow you to create a thread of the appropriate format so that a quick link can be made to the thread.

In fewer words, both EU and US BGs are supported, just get the thread created in the BG forums.

:confused:

BG Forums -> 2v2 -> Bloodlust US Thread, Vindication US Thread etc.
BG Forums -> 3v3 -> Bloodlust US Thread, etc etc.

..and so on.

I thought only the initial 2v2/3v3/5v5 subforum links would show up beneath the main link / description. I mean, there's no real reason to do it, just more of an aesthetics thing. ;p

Oh, I see what you are saying, 2v2, 3v3, 5v5. I thought you meant BG, BG, BG, BG, etc. Yeah thats probably a good idea, I'll let it populate some first so they don't look dead :P

Moved your post assuming you were referring to this. I think it may be possible to figure out what the last post you had read is. If so, I'll move you to that post.

Err, that was trivially simple. It should now take you to the newest post that hasn't been read :)
