West Coast and East Coast battlegroups.

Make R1 the top .01% and Gladiator the top .07% (raised the percentage due to the decline in arena participation).  Get rid of R1 in 5's OR put it back in 2's as well.  Make it all or nothing for 2's and 5's and lower the amount of people on a 5's team to 8.

Also, put some godamn effort into Glad mounts and stop recycling PVE mounts.  Having a completely different Glad mount would encourage PVE'ers to try and participate in PVP and spark more interest the game overall in my opinion...

Can people explain why they think two BG's would be better than one massive BG? Wouldn't latency be OK for everyone if there was one central server? I think it'd be cool if the entire US fought each other for Glad, for that top spot. What's the reasoning behind splitting players into two groups that won't ever compete?

I agree with Thug: no more tying for R1 titles. First team to reach the rating gets it. And either get rid of R1 from 5's or bring it back to 2's (at least this bracket can be fun even if it's not terribly balanced). Why is Blizzard so obsessed with the quantity of players? It's the same shit with the significantly higher RBG conquest cap. Blizz needs to learn to treat PvP'ers different from raiders. The closest thing to quality PvP is 3's, and quality should be rewarded over quantity.

Latency and the amount of traffic being tunneled through one main data center would be my biggest concerns.  The cost to build (or upgrade) one mega datacenter is probably out of the question at this late stage in the game.  Two, or even three (West, Central, East), would seem like the most logical and cost effective avenue, but I am just speculating as I dont know any details on the current data centers.

Even with one huge BG they would likely use multiple data centers. It's just a matter of how they would marshal which instance servers players are connecting to.

I'd say 3, West Coast, Central and East Coast. would be easier. And 3 would already be better than the bajillion we have right when half of them aren't even competitive.

Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.
