I play Horde on Dunemaul, and our BG group is absolutely riddled with players who have confused EotS with WSG. I'll see the majority of our players run for mid even before we cap our 2 towers, and now I just leave the battleground. It's not worth it. After arguing with players who do this, it seems the OVERWHELMING majority of them are young teens who treat BGs as deathmatches, which is the best way to lose. I agree with Narlic, this (and the Wowwiki article on EotS) should be required reading. If not to keep me from stroking out and dying, then at least to get everyone more marks.

"..majority of them are young teens who treat BGs as deathmatches.."It just occured to me that many BG problems could be solved simply by Blizzard adding a new Battleground which actually *is* Deathmatch-only! Since the 4 we currently have are rather ruined when everyone just treats them as a big deathmatch as Zombie points out regarding EotS, having a new one that is intentionally pure Deathmatch would give the kids something to keep them occupied while we stick with our tried-and-true strats in the original 4 BG's.It would be easy for Blizz to create a Deathmatch Battleground, they could even base it off Gurabashi arena or the Diremaul arean since no one really uses those much anymore anyway. First person to get 100 kills wins some bonus honor on top of their kills. Easy. Plus it would actually be a nice diversion once in a while for those who like the occasional carnage-filled slaughterfest.

@6Isn't that basically Arena? Or are you after something more?
