Mar 8th 2011 8:22AM I was very disappointed as I have always casually played battlegrounds and saw them as a method of getting some recognition for doing well. I know it is not really straightforward to work out who has done well in a battleground, but it should be possible to hash together killing blows/damage/heals/objectives into some kind of score and award people conquest points and rating accordingly, say for the top 25% of participants.
Maybe that could sit alongside the fully arranged rated BGs, and the proper ones would award significantly more rating and points, but us casual BG players would still get a few conquest here and there.
I am GM of a good raiding guild, that rarely does PvP and we would really struggle to find 10 people on a non-raiding night. A few of us do arena and are passionate about PvP and it is frustrating to be locked out of the content in this way.
