Episode 40 - Talking with Maldiva

 

Upcoming WoW PVP Events

 

WOW PVP NEWS

  • A Dev Q&A happened on Nov 16th. From that we got the following news:
    • They’re looking at h-talents and Prestige.  They’re not sure what they will do, but know they don’t want to add another 30 prestige levels.  Also looking at honour talents and the feeling of barrier to entry on alts or delayed levelling)
    • Legendaries
      • will be reduced to previous.  “Going back” per say.  This is good for world pvp
    • PVP Server changes
      • Their intent is not to “kill world pvp” as some are expecting; moreso revitalize.  They are creating a proper world pvp space for people who want to elect regardless of selected servers.  
      • Opens other options like - delay on mount post pvp battle (just an idea)
      • Intent is to open “pvp realm” to all (don’t need to server transfer) and will allow for a “global” balancing [aka reduce server faction imbalance]
    • RP realm WPVP
      • Recognize RP realm communities and don’t want to disrupt.
      • Expect to flag and still be with others from your realm.  
        • Not sure if this means all or just those who also flagged
    • Raiding capitals
      • No new events added.  Would love to see the “enemy at the gates” of old.
  • World PVP changes with artifacts - https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/21025532/hotfixes-november-14
  • Season 6 starts today
  • Hotfixes/PVP Tuning - https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20759567061#post

Listener Emails

From Alisaunder

People always talk about 3 day Alterac Valley, but no one ever explains why it was that way?

So, why was it?  What changed?

I've seen the quest givers but never understood what they were intended to do, or understood why players decided PvEing Alterac Valley against the Generals was better than PvPing each other.

    • Official Blizz description - “In a new Battleground, Seething Shore, players of the Horde and Alliance will descend upon Silithus to battle over the Azerite bubbling to the surface. This Battleground will offer dynamic control point gameplay similar to Arathi Basin, but with new control points appearing periodically as resources are depleted. This new Battleground will require coordination as you and your team work to overcome the opposing faction. Since this Battleground actually serves to tell part of the story that leads to the events of Battle for Azeroth, we also plan to offer a preview of the Seething Shore during patch 7.3.5 as we continue to build upon the conflict between the Horde and the Alliance for the coming expansion.
