Jul 5th 2010 11:25PM I would love if they have a 3v3v3v3 type battleground/arena hybrid with a team deathmatch feel too it. That would be great.
On that note a deathmatch "mode" for BGs where they have no objectives (capture flags, resources, mines, etc.) and just kill players until a certain score level, First team to 250 kills wins or something like that
Jul 4th 2010 10:29PM Actually unfortunately it wasn't. I wanted to say this made sense, but then I looked up some lore on Wowwiki:
"The climate is very similar to Burning Steppes, as it was the same catastrophe that blackened both: the summoning of Ragnaros. Searing Gorge is a part of Khaz Modan, and was a mountains region, part of the Redridge Mountains, but was shattered by the summoning. "
The last sentence is the most important. This whole region was part of a mountain range until Ragnaros decimated it.
I imagine it was something similar to what happed to the island of Krakatoa in 1883.

If you haven't tried OpenGL, then you just give it a go by adding 'SET gxApi "OpenGL" ' to your config.wtf folder
And obviously this benefits the Linux gamers as well.
Jun 30th 2010 9:16PM Holy shit, we're FINALLY getting OpenGL cursor support for Windows. Blizz does actually listen :)
Jun 29th 2010 12:07PM You can get your Rod back if you petition a GM explaining it. They will more than likely restore it for you.
Jun 24th 2010 8:18PM Looks like this will be my new favorite zone. I love LoTR, esp The Shire. All LoTR references are welcome in my book.
Jun 12th 2010 11:04AM Yes this IS indeed awesome. They only need to implement one more thing.
What they should do is allow us to turn objectives off or on for Battlegrounds so you choose between whatever the normal BG objectives are and straight team deathmatch mode. That would be so sick.
I love PvPing and to be honest I don't give a crap about objectives. I know I'm one of those people that everyone hates in WSG that camps Mid for HKs, but I don't really care. I PvP to do exactly that. I go there to kill opposing players, so an option that allows me to just kill opposing players without people pissing and moaning would be a godsend.
I know I can't be the only one.
