I know this is off-topic (bring on the downrates!) but WSG is long due for a single change... They need to change the mechanics so that a flag can be captured WITHOUT having your faction's flag at the base. Just make it so that the first person to bring the enemy flag home gets the score and the flags get reset. Why? Because I'm tired of WSG games that are 100% about 'hiding' the flag instead of being about actual pvp. Changing to a single capture system like that would really up the ante on the combat in there.

That won't work, because then why defend your flag when you can just brute force theirs?

then you get a change in strategy: where you can now kill the FC or get their flag you'll have to get their flag. I think to help your point make the FC's weaker faster and more weak.I used to hate WSG. Now I enjoy it. I now hate SoTa (whereas I used to enjoy it).and ever since wrath, for some odd reason, our team wins EoTS now. Weird huh?

They just need to reduce the time before the flag holder gets revealed on the map. Making flags capturable without your own flag would just lead to rush games which aren't about PVP anyway.

I think WSG is the most beautiful and perfect BG ever. I've experienced such incredible games thanks to how the system works right now.. the other day we friggin one by a 1 second margin. We recovered our flag and the FC capped the second point, we got the last cap and won by 1 second. Those things can only happen when the game is about defending and recovering flags.. I just luv it, I've been leveling my alts through WSG call to arms (10 levels in 2 days, yes please!) and I can't get enough! best BG ever.

Maybe have the flag reset if it hasn't been captured after five minutes of being taken from the enemy flag room?

My only concern with that is, especially in lower levels, it becomes a matter of grab and run. No other focus or concerns are presented other then grabbing your fastest footed person and making a mad dash.This would be a nightmare in the 19 bracket especially. Other team have a Druid for the flag? Grats, we just lost.

I don't understand why you'd say this would lead to no defense... You would still need to bring the enemy flag home faster than they bring YOUR flag to their base, so obviously the best way to do that would be to defend the flag and stop them from being able to pick it up in the first place.

In my opinion, the change that WSG needs is to only have ONE flag cap. The first team to capture the flag wins. Because that's what happens the vast majority of the time anyway. Sure, every once in a while a team manages to come back from a deficit to win. Far far more often, however, whichever team caps the first flag is the one that wins the bg.
