Team Deathmatch
add thiss!!
+1 it sounds fun
This idea really has been growing on me, since I noticed this gap between objective-focused battlegrounds (play to win with flags or bosses) and the 'you-only-live-once'-arena try hard mode.

I love the idea of leaving the objectives aside so that all players can fully focus on the teamfight experience, which we all love!

And we all know those fights have amazing shifts from side to side and epic scenarios all the time - not only because of individual skill or gear but also psychological tricks, distractions, heroic sacrifices and the overall momentum.

I believe all players and all classes could contribute in a unique way and that this suggestion will enrich the gaming experience Retro Wow is already delivering.

I'm here to suggest a new battleground type; TDM.

How it should work:  Team A vs Team B, the first team to reach ~50 honorable kills total wins the BG.
                              Open BG on 5v5 entered in queue, cap at 20v20

                              Spawn&GY locations must be unreachable by opposing teams (graveyard on tall platform)

                            [Edit to include anti-griefing measure - To prevent stalemates, one of each faction flag (or one neutral flag) should be added to the central area of the map which should have a long capture cast and/or capture timer (~1 minute cast timer appears appropriate without play testing). Capturing this flag should score a complete victory for the capturing team. (IE points score 2000 per second unless neutral/uncaptured). The purpose of this is to create traffic to the central point of the map, and to prevent griefing by one team refusing to exit their respawn safe area.

                              The rewards should be similar to arena rewards, if not exactly the same [PVP Token] & [Arena Token] so as to not outweigh                                                    traditional BG rewards.

What it promotes:  This type of battleground attracts the casual frame of mind, and the hardcore player if they like. The behavior seen in BGs currently as of April 2021 is often far removed from teamwork or objective based decision making ( AB is constantly undefended flags, WSG flag game gets ignored over killing people in mid. )

Why we should have it:  It would be a lot of fun, for a lot of people! The objective of the battleground is something that everyone can contribute to without ignoring it all together. Sadly Vanilla has become an old game and many are growing tired of it. For those players, I would ask one thing; does team deathmatch in WoW sound fun to you? I know there won't ever be as much hype as when nost went down and classic was announced, however that doesn't mean vanilla has lost all interest. We still have a vibrant and large community, some more present than others. If you're like me, maybe you're bored of the game but don't want to stop playing. 

How about other battlegrounds? Won't adding another only make them worse? Well, that is a fair concern. Despite that, I would consider the possible benefit of winning back old players who have grown tired of the traditional battlegrounds outweighs the possible cost of adding another battleground.
When arenas were released there was a surge of players returning to come check it out. And those players interested in it tended to give their spots in a battleground up for an arena queue; just something to consider for the newer player up against oldf*gs in BGs.

If you think this would be a welcomed addition then show your support in the thread, make sure the staff sees this. Years ago some of us asked for arenas; Kelzo and the staff made it happen after the community voiced their interest. However you feel about the current condition of the server, I just want to say I really do appreciate all the staff's work keeping the server updated and adding new features every once in a while. Your consideration alone is worth thanking.

Regardless of your decision I hope everyone reading this has a pleasant day!  Cool[/b][/b]
