So I'll be PvPing every other week, according to your votes. I'll also be remaining elemental, and I will continue to participate in the Love is in the Air holiday. I didn't get many suggestions for a companion, so please vote in the comments so I can put up a poll next week. Here are some other things to make suggestions in the comments so that I can put up polls:
- Mount choices
- Achievement goals
- Anything else you'd like to vote on
I'm loving PvP on The Roblinator, which I didn't really think would happen. Last week, when not mechanically shredding trees and night elves, I participated in both Warsong Gulch and Arathi Basin. Warsong Gulch in the 10 to 14 range was kind of slow and painful. WSG really is hit or miss. If you have a good team that knows not to fight randomly in the middle, then it can be fun and speedy. If people are just running around aimlessly, not helping the flag carrier or just AFK pretending to be on defense, you just need to hope that the other side doesn't turtle. Not having any movement goodies because we're all so young made it seem even slower.
Arathi Basin, on the other hand, is far less frustrating even with a bad group. If your side is really terrible, then yay speedy five-cap! You're done and can move onto the next one ... after the queue wait. Even if both sides are just following each other around the map, taking each other's resources and losing our own at the same time, it can still be fun for the skirmishes at each flag. Again, the dolts who fight on the road are frustrating, but it doesn't slow things down as bad as WSG. I didn't miss having a mount quite as much.
This week, I'm in the next bracket and have spirit wolf. We'll see if that makes a big difference in how the battlegrounds play.
