We are having fun but there is few problems I'm really annoyed about rateds. Thing is, at first I thought rateds were the best idea ever. Rated AB? Rated warsong? Wildest dreams, man! Large scale tactics, assaults, 15 people on vent having fun! but then.. it kinda went "meh".-Class balance issues and blatant abuse of class skills- For example if you are rogue your job is not to kill people you are smoke bomb spammer and you literally SPAM fan of knives with crippling poison(70% slow..) etc. It doesnt matter can he kill anything - you either stay near flag carrier and spam fok to slow other team drastically or in Gilneas you stay near flag and spam fok so noone can capture it because damage interrupts flag capping.And thats all they are meant to do. Thats all they seem to happily do. I took rogue as example, theres plenty of other classes who are there just for the couple spells/specs they have..making them "good bg classes".It sadly feels that you are there for that "one annoyance spell" and your job is to spam it nothing else. No matter how good PvP player you are.. Just "spam that skill to annoy other team!"Also to add in battle for gilneas there is few really annoying things.1) Alliance wins on tie - doesnt matter on pugs but rated? Erm.. ok.2) Once you lose second base you basically lost the game. They have teams on 2 bases and they can just spam aoe near flag and the opposing team will never ever get it with cast time to cap the flag, also the map is way too small. Bring on the AB, now THATS what I want since its big enough map for travelling to matter! Capture the flag works on RBG's not capture points - at all. They need to fix gilneas or remove it from the RBG's. Its okay map as pug, not as rated.Those are major flaws in RBG's I've seen so far. Theres plenty but that would be nitpicking.But I still enjoy them. Its just annoying when we meet teams with "perfect setup" and it always feels that you just got horribly abused by spell X.Thing I see as very good is that you are basically forcing people to talk on vent. We usually have very very few people who actually talk on vent - even if everyone has mics. 3/10 people talk on vent..thats a joke. With RBG's its basically good "therapy" to get people more talkative on vent, since you HAVE TO do that no matter how much you do it - you wont always know whats coming unlike raid bosses that stay same week to week.Thats what I can praise it about a lot.
