Who will win? Who will lose? The Carbot Animations Wowcraft team has been in Warsong Gulch for longer than even the worst Alterac Valley match (though some Warsong runs certainly feel this long). But with the alliance and horde still locked in a dramatic struggle for the flag -- stymied by hunter...

I know Wowcraft is supposed to be a World of Warcraft parody, but this episode's trip to Warsong Gulch seems pretty true to my in-game experiences... except, of course, Wowcraft is way more adorable. In every battleground, though, you always seem to run into at least one player trying to organize f...

It's tough carrying the flag in Warsong Gulch or Twin Peaks, primarily due to the Focused Assault debuff which increases the damage you take when you pick up the flag -- but it's about to get a little tougher for tanks playing these rated battlegrounds. According to CM Lore, in rated battlegrounds ...

Warsong Gulch is a frustrating map. It's a great game (one of my favorite), but it doesn't take much for a team to run right off the rails. One or two people determined to live in the field, one person who just doesn't have the juice to win, or even a bad flag carrier are all things that can wrec...

Last week, we talked about some basic strategy for Warsong Gulch. We ran through the basics, the general flow of the fight, and how you (tend) to win it. One subject came up a bunch in the comments and landed in my email box a few times. That question: How do you run the flag successfully? It'...

Is there a logic to Azeroth's battlegrounds? I understand that places like Arathi Basin, the Battle for Gilneas, or Twin Peaks have victory conditions that may or may not really have all that much to do with how real wars are waged -- much less Warsong Gulch or Eye of the Storm. (I mean, if you wan...

The Spiritual Guidance duo, Fox Van Allen and Dawn Moore, haven't always gotten along so well. While some attribute that to the natural way that the shadow abhors the light, the real reason is the time they were on The Price is Right together in 2003. I mean, two hundred dollars for a grandfather c...

Zach loves the Battlegrounds. He loves them so much that he spends nearly all his playing time mucking around in them. He loves them so much he writes a column devoted to them. He loves it so much he makes a comic based on Battlegrounds play. You could say he eats, lives, and breathes Battlegrounds...

Before you ask: No, it still doesn't work going into or out of the flag rooms in Warsong Gulch. Places it does work: Going into and out of most other doorways. Up stairs. Through a great many smaller objects. Over unusual terrain, far more frequently than it used to. Overall: it works a lot more ...

Ghostcrawler has posted a little paragraph on the forums, reaffirming something we've already heard from Blizzard: that in the past, they've spent more time on Arenas to the detriment of battlegrounds, and that battlegrounds are going to be gaining a little more focus in the future. They've already ...

I'm sorry Blizzard, but I'm with the whiners on this one. The School of Hard Knocks is so badly designed that it's ruining, instead of enhancing, the Battleground experience. Take, for example, the requirement to return a flag in Warsong Gulch. First of all, the requirement is that the player retu...
