Mar 5th 2008 7:42PM I totally want to play as a consortium member. That would be awesome.
Jun 8th 2007 2:21PM I think a great battle groud could be made by taking the warcraft 3 RTS mod DotA and turning that into a battle ground in WoW.
The rest of this article assumes that you have played the DotA WC3 RTS Mod before. The twist being that instead of the real life players being the heros, the players are the creeps. The goal of the players is to support the hero as they battle their way into the enemies base. I'd imagine that blizzard could pull this off pretty easily since Alterac valley already has these large creatures that fight for you and in my mind could be easily adaped to be a hero similar to DotA.
In Alterac Valley these summoned creatures were a pain to summon and usually were kited or killed quickly. I think my idea for a battle ground would be different from Alterac because the hero would summon itself, and would be a much more central component in the game play of the battle ground. I also feel that if a map for the battle ground is setup similar to how the DotA map is this would help to reduce the effectiveness of kiting the hero as was common in Alterac.
