View Full Version : World PvP - Ways to bring it back?

Most of us will remember the good old days of Tarren Mill (TM) vs Southshore (SS), the large pitch battles between each town, the death and destruction of gnomes, the decapitation of gnomes, the burning and flaying of gnomes...mmm killing gnomes...ahem, sorry.

Are there any possible ways to reignite the hostilities?

Each town has some captured NPCs, players can choose to rescue them but in doing so they flag themselves. For rescuing and escorting an NPC back to their respective town you would get xx amount of honour and say a badge to spend on whatever.

The issues that crop up are high levels doing it and getting cheap honour, so reduce the honour to zero after a certain level, say 40. The guards are level 45, so reduce them to say 30. Now obviously the high level ones would want something similar, so we could have level brackets and guard levels to work accordingly. Places we could maybe have it are:

Hillsbrad - Tarren Mill and Southshore - Lvl 10-40
Swamp of Sorrows/Blasted Lands - Stonard and Nethergarde Keep - 40-60
Hellfire - Thrallmar and Honour Hold - 55-65
Boring Tundra - Sorry can't remember the bases, sorry... 65-75
Plus some for the 80s who can't be arsed waiting on Wintergrasp.

Of course there are things I won't have thought of, problems that will crop up. I would like to hear other players' take on the idea. Maybe we can flesh it out a little and maybe even present the idea to Blizzard if we can make it work.

It would be a long process and wait even if Blizzard accepts this.

How 'bout just an organised mass brawl sometime this week? Setting would be good ol' Azeroth (no flying mounts for the cowardly), Tarren Mill/Southshore 'cause of easy access for both factions, and if you wish to participate all you have to do is PvP flag yourself.

I'd be in, and I believe I could bring quite a few people into it. Trade channel spam would have it's uses as well.

Afaik there are private servers running vanilla.

Obviously, they're as stable as quicksand. ;(

A big scrum between TM and SS would be awesome Adharc! Shall we try and arrange something for next weekend, say the 19th at around 2pm server? If it works out we could make it a weekly event.

I'll make a calendar invite Alliance-side, I've got around 30-40 names in mind, maybe more, but I don't know that many people Horde-side, 20 at max. Anyone that could do the same for the uglier residents of Azeroth?

I'll poke a few on the herd guild and see how many we can get over there, and as you suggested we can always use /trade too :)

I've created two calendar events, for both factions, Sunday the 19th, 2:00 pm.

Alliance one has 42 people invited, 13 confirmed.

Horde one has 35 people invited, and none confirmed as I just made it.

Recruiting friends and guildies is welcome.

so what happend

I had to leave town on Friday due to unexpected issues, and couldn't return until yesterday evening. Missing me probably made a lot of people go 'meh' and return to progression in Ulduar.

Will give it another try in 2-3 weeks, once the craze ends.

I logged in late, completely forgot due to the mass hysteria happening in my house at the moment. I did a check in Hillsbrad but didn't see much, although TM was under attack according to world defense earlier. Have to try again, it can be made a success.

didn't it say the 19th? This is the 14th!

Anyway, if this was two weeks ago ... let's try it again.

.......

There was something going down at TM last weekend. I tied to get some Hordies involved, but not much happened. - We may have to keep it up for a while in order to get people to notice it and get interested.

.......

So ... Sunday july 19th around 2pm?

Let's have some fun, guys! :-D
