Expansion Predictions

31 July 2015 - 09:31 AM

With the next expansion being announced next week, I thought we could have a thread where we "call" the major features and then whoever is randomly closest gets showered in rep.


I'm calling:
  • Water themed
  • Something to do with Sylvanas
  • Even though they say no more new classes, new ranged mail caster
  • Expansion will be free to all subs
  • Massive over-promising of features will be made
  • "We will do garrisons right this time"
  • Maybe TWO new classes???
  • No new PvP specific zone, focus back on arenas and battlegrounds
  • Another revamp of how raiding lockouts work
  • Return to having dailies instead of random grinds

And this mage, Majinbaz, is in honor gear while everyone else is wearing tournament gear. Lol.

Official Blizzard Quote:

They say, “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer”—and soon, you’ll be able to do just that.

In an upcoming patch, we’ll be adding a feature that allows you to act as a mercenary for the opposite faction in PvP. Whenever your faction is experiencing a long wait time to get into Ashran or unrated Battlegrounds, agents of the enemy faction will appear in your base in Ashran (Stormshield for the Alliance, Warspear for the Horde). These agents will allow you to enter Ashran or Battlegrounds disguised as an enemy player, and actually fight as the opposite faction.

When you compete as a mercenary, you’ll still earn all the same rewards you would have by winning or losing as your own faction (with the exception of faction-specific achievements). You’ll also have your race automatically changed into one appropriate for the opposite faction while you’re still inside the Battleground or Ashran. Perhaps most importantly, however, you’ll experience much shorter queue times, as our matchmaking system will be able to fill up groups much quicker!

Our goal with Mercenary Mode is to allow players who want to participate in Ashran or unrated Battlegrounds the ability to do so without having to wait through long queues, while still maintaining the spirit of the core Alliance vs Horde fantasy. We’ll be testing this feature soon on the Public Test Realm, and look forward to hearing your feedback!

Season 17 Titles

10 July 2015 - 10:13 PM

Official Blizzard Quote:

With the start of Warlords Season 2, we wanted to take a minute to discuss our plans for the end-of-season Arena titles. After taking a long, hard look at how we distribute these titles, we have decided to make a few changes detailed below:

In the our post last week we talked a lot about the changes to Player vs. Player gearing and how we think the increased randomness has been a positive change. After the enormously positive feedback we received, we have decided to apply these ideologies to other parts of the game, in this case Arena title awards.

Starting at the end of Warlords Season 2, the percentage cutoffs for each title will be completely randomized. We feel this will encourage players to continue playing since they will not know what title they will get until after the season has ended.

For example:

The Duelist title cutoff, in the past has always been the top 3% of players on the arena ladder. For this season it might be 2%, it might be 5.7%. The actual cutoffs will be decided in the week between Warlords Season 2 and Warlords Season 3.
