I have a feeling that this will top DAoC for best PvP MMORPG.

I like the idea of having things for lower level players to do besides act as cannon fodder and scouts.  Sounds very cool and promising.

There doesn't seem to be a more permanent reward though, unless I'm missing something?  It looks like it'll be an amusing diversion though.

To many Alliance players though, may overwhelm the poor Horde.

Actually the very first picure in the article has this caption:
"A PvP reward mount and armor set"

From that I assume there will be substantial rewards.

Does anyone think this sounds like the coolest thing to ever hit any MMO ever, that is, if they actually make it work anything even remotely like what they are saying?

It strikes me kind of like the game Savage, which is cool, as that game pushed a really good concept fairly well.

I'm definitely looking foward to playing a peon on the battlefields=)) woot.

I am happy with the information revealed. At the start of WoW it was hard for me to decided to go PvP server or regular server. I decided to go regular server and hope the the battlegrounds delivered the goods. Looks like they will be doing just that.

Why would any PvP outside of the battlegrounds? I wonder how much of the reward system will extend into non-battleground areas? Like, can you loot those PvP items off fallen enemies outside of the battlegrounds. Will there be any PvP stuff you can do with enemy blood outside of the battlegrounds. Can you save them up? Curious to see how that works out.

Savage was actually very entertaining, until you got irritated how easy it was for people to switch sides to the winning side....  Amongst other things...

I still want to make a PVP alt, and was looking around for a good group of people who do PVP... anyone have any suggestions?

Allow me to pimp the guild I belong to on the Sargares PvP server, Alliance side, the Horde Assassins.  Ok, its not a great guild name, but its a very good bunch of guys.

My characters are Renfrew (main) and Typhon (alt).  If Im not working, at school, or sleeping, there is at least an 80% chance of me being on.

We have a forum, but it isnt very trafficked (thats probably spelled wrong, but Ive earned it for all the words I spell right).  Its pretty much just something the guild leader threw together.
