Oh, this comment thread should be fun. /popcornFor my 2 credits, I'll say that both WoW and TOR have a lot to learn from RIFT's Black Garden. Most fun I've ever had in PVP. TOR PVP ain't half bad; all the classes whine about the other classes, so that must be good. If everyone thinks every other class is OP, they must have done something right!Oh, and nerf commandos.

The best quote ever about MMO's :"Cows go 'Moo!', Dogs go 'Woof!', mmorpg'ers go 'the PVP is unbalanced'."http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/5323-Star-Wars-The-Old-RepublicP.S. Nerf commandos.

Black Garden is a form of pvp called Murderball, a quick search traces it's origins to an Unreal Tournament map. It's been utilized very well in rift, also in warhammer.WoW is going to have a murderball battleground called "Valley Of Power," we don't know much about it, probably won't until open beta. So wow is also copying this - I have to agree too, this form of pvp is about as close to a straight out deathmatch as you get in MMO's, which is pretty fun if there is some decent class balance, but is really crappy and can get quickly out of hand if there is a skill/gear imbalance between the two teams. I'd say over 80% of the black gardens i was in was a blowout win for one side or the other.
