good idea but it's destined to fail
competition is what is needed to revive the rbg community which happens to be in an atrocious state but you're going a little overboard with the trading of players/draft like setup
i love the idea of teams but buying and trading is imo a little too far
i also don't think there is enough incentive for most top notch players to fill a roster of 20, let alone multiple teams. currently there are probably 3 subpar rbg teams that queue regularly, and there isn't even enough players to que into each other

other than that the lack of players it would be a fun experiment but i can foresee you excluding 3/4 of the current RBG community due to bias opinions or personal grudges and you'll end up playing against typical 2k players

i support though


only reason it would fail is because you would just send everyone to the shadowrealm mid draft

sounds like fun. hope you can find enough players / have people show up consistently.

dont think ddos will be a factor at all considering you don't lose actual rating.. its just wargames

the problem will be all the skype sharing due to the large teams that might cause more ddos in ranked play lol

Hey, if you're interested in leading a team message me here. Also, Abn will be leading one on Horde and I on Alliance. I'm proposing an 8 team league with Alliance Faction and Horde Faction, 4 each. Like the NFC and AFC of the NFL.

commendable effort, i hope you get enough turnout to make it active with an 80-160 player league (if i'm reading correctly), but i have doubts that anything without a way to incentivize players will be able to make them commit to something that requires the scheduling that this would - without a doubt the most significant difference between something like WoW and a real sport

best of luck though

I adamantly disagree, there are plenty of people that queue RBGs on a daily basis without a higher incentive than plain and simple fun. This game is NOT a successful esport, it's a social game. People will play for fun.

I wish this was the case, but outside of prime hours there's hardly anything for the most part.

I'm optimistic that maybe if this takes off that there can be a couple series, but with things like having to work around so many schedules of key players that I highly doubt anybody can maintain a league without people flaking out eventually.

Support it though, #teamGOB2014

right, but getting them all to log on at the same time and queue an organized match where you are strictly limited to people on your roster (if you take them from another roster you're defeating the purpose of the league) is tricky considering the nature of peoples' schedules on wow, and especially tricky when people decide to ditch at the last minute to play arena or because they got invited to do something that night

if it works then that's great - i hope it does. things like this are just historically difficult to organize

Maybe you should stop dodging real teams and rage quitting after a loss.

Going to blizzcon looking for a fight is like going to the official wow arena forums for pvp advice :)

If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, bin Laden, and you, I would shoot you twice.

Nice idea should be fun to watch and participate. I think there should be less stars in total to restrict picks or something to introduce some more dynamic thinking. Maybe reduce the number of people you can pick or if u keep it at 20 make it that u have to rotate your all your picks in games or something.
