Battlegrounds Patch for World of Warcraft Released
9:16 AM | Jesse Brauning | Comment on this story
The wait is over. With the arrival of the long awaited, highly anticipated, and much hyped Battlegrounds patch for Blizzard's World of Warcraft, gamers the world over will be lining up to head back into the realm of Azeroth. The patch brings the two expected Battlegrounds online, Alterac Valley and Warsong Gulch. In addition, there's a host of bug fixes and tweaks. Of particular interest to many players is this change:
Dishonorable kills - gained by killing a trivial Civilian NPC - now has a negative impact on a player's honor. Enough dishonorable kills will reduce a player's rank all the way to zero.Interesting, to say the least. With this and the new Battlegrounds, WoW players can probably look forward to a few days of the usual overloaded servers and mass mayhem. If everything lives up to the hype, however, no one is going to care.
