You blink more often in bg's. It's good for your eyes.

I think I've been getting more honor as Horde queueing rated BGs (than queueing randoms) since you actually get queues (Instant->5min) and you WIN. It's like 40-60 honor per win, I'm pretty sure the honor comes from "checkpoints" in the BG, like getting X amount of resources in AB.

I'm glad you don't have to do them at all if you don't want to.

Do you know 3 or more mages? Do you know 3 or more healers? Do you know 3 or more warriors? Do you know 1 feral? Then Spam rated bg qs and never look back :)

Because organized BGs is the most fun I could possibly have in this game, be it at the end of Vanilla WoW when the battlegroups were introduced or now.

I find competitive BGs a lot more fun then arena (the last competitive one being years ago). Of course it totally sucks grinding rating up, but eventually you'll get good premade vs good premade.

I find rated BGs really fun and on top of that you get titles that are 300000x cooler than the arena ones (cmon who doesnt want to be a Grand Marshall/High Warlord)

Top Rated BG team vs another is about 100 times more fun to play in and watch than the same thing in Arena.


i bet, if rated bgs gets to tournament level it will definetely be very exciting to watch!

Its probably much more fun to watch than arena seeing there s a lot more going on, both micro and macro. I really hope we'll get to watch it in tournements.

I actually like doing rated bgs more than arena atm, all depends on who you play with and if its fun playing with a group of alot. I haven't done 10 man but i figure it SHOULD be more fun than 15 man from what I hear.
