This is just personal opinion but I don't really enjoy all the waiting in the CTF games.  Ya know as we wait for enough stacks to kill the other teams flag carrier.  They modified eots with flags to cap so I'm sure a slight tweek to the way CTF works would be doable as well.

The basic idea would be to change it to you can cap even if they have your flag.  In my opinion it would make the CTF that much more fast paced with more stragedies. Anyways I was curious if this would work or if its a terrible idea. I was just thinking it would be more fun for me anyways.

The current system allows for more 'skillful' matches. What you suggest would promote more gimmicky compositions which would make WoW into an even bigger joke of an 'esport'.

I completely disagree.. Think OP makes a good point, it would call for the team to intercept the other team either on their way there to split their group or it would make for a fight on the way back rather than having both teams turtle with their FC

Well I mean if its already considered a "joke of an esport" what does it matter anyways.  Plus I don't think these gimmicky compositions would matter that much as more then 1/2 the time (once eots is back) you get a non CTF game. So I don't think most teams would setup around a gimmicky CTF setup just to be at a disadvantage in the node base games.

Ya exactly, I think it would give more dimensions to the CTF game then there are currently.

Or you could not play like a bunch of fags and actually attack properly.  Constantly waiting, trying to wipe them, going to attack, having them wipe you etc... is dull.  Just play offensively and win that way.

Ya man lets force teams to run feral druid with priests and paladins for freedoms and bro grips to make RBGs even more gimmicky.

Just make first flag cap matter.

I've seen alot of homo play lately with retard teams hanging back waiting for our offense.  Annoying as hell.  Seemed like we saw less of this last season.

I thought I made a post about this, guess I didn't.

Original WSG was under the ruleset the OP suggests, it wasn't very fun.

Well the game has changed alot from when WSG was originally released. I'm not really buying the argument that you will get to many gimick teams because what are they going to do when they get the other bgs they would be screwed.  Anyways it was just a random idea that I thought would make it more fun.  I'm not like diehard this is the best idea of all time or anything.

How is requiring having a feral druid FC (compared to everyone running prot war or DK atm) any more gimmicky than requiring to have a smokebomb to kill flag carriers?  Flag carrying maps are just stupid, end of story.  There are a lot of really subpar specs that you can't bring.
