BG Tournament: Wintergrasp.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

As you may be aware, we’ve been including some features to the Battleground Tournament each week (such as Tournament ladders with participation rewards, score system update…etc). As mentioned in previous news, there are many things that we will be slowly introducing into the Tournament.

This week, we have a new interesting addition: Wintergrasp Battle. This means that Wintergrasp battles are very relevant and will count towards the global score; each win will be shown on the PvP section and will score 10 extra points to the corresponding faction.

What comes next?

The PvP section will keep getting little upgrades, our next step is to introduce a City Raiding system/feature into the Tournament, as well as show some extra PvP statistics. We are having a blast seeing so much participation and interest, receiving this many suggestions and support for this idea, we are going to keep working hard to improve it and make it as fun and challenging as we can. Thank you everyone!

As a side note, we have decided to reset the current Arena Season, more info about this and the upcoming arena ladders on website will follow shortly. We are also going to stop publishing the weekly winner as new on the website, although we will keep announcing it in the forums and Social Media, alongside with the ingame system message.

Thank you.

Weekly BG Tournament winner: Horde (and more info)

The Horde has raised as the winner of Weekly Battleground Tournament this time! So we have to yell: LOK’TAR OGAR!

Congratulations, Horde! Good job with the team effort that brought you to Victory.

We are going to detail the rewards that the Horde is going to enjoy this week as fair winners of the tournament:

  • Extra Honor.

  • Extra Experience received in Dungeons.

  • 25% emblem drop chance upon finishing a WoTLK Random Heroic Dungeon (Frost for ICC attuned players, or the corresponding emblem based on character progression).

  • Extra emblem drop from certain WoTLK Raid Bosses (Frost for ICC attuned players, or the corresponding emblem based on character progression). Naxxramas: Loatheb, Maexxna, The 4 Horsemen, Thaddius and Kel’Thuzad; Ulduar: XT-002 Deconstructor, Auriaya, Mimiron, Yogg’Saron; ToC: Lord Jaraxxus, Twin Val’kyrs, Anub’arak.

  • Small amount of Arena Points upon finishing a level 80 BG (both factions will enjoy this).

We will also take advantage of this new to explain a few important changes done to the Tournament.

First and foremost, the introduction of the Score system: This system will allow us to evaluate other PvP aspects, not just Battlegrounds (as mentioned in other news: City Raiding, Wintergrasp…etc)., but we have introduced it a bit earlier than expected in order to balance scores and participation. As the lower level brackets battlegrounds tend to happen more often, we think this will keep healthy scores and increase the relevance for the 80’s. We will have special Twink weeks too, of course, variety is the key.

As we do not want to devalue lower bracket’s effort, they also have score. But for the time being it will be 1 Point, while the level 80 Battlegrounds shall grant 5 instead.

This score breakdown will change with the weekly tasks to fulfill, in order to also promote other PvP areas. It will allow us to add different values to shift the scene into other activities and therefore make it a fun and refreshing event. We have many plans and one of them is the inclusion of a “PvP Bonus Objective” system, where players will have to do some weekly tasks or achieve certain matters; more information will be posted when the time comes.

Another important introduction to the Tournament is the Top Honor Kills and Top Activity. The website PvP section shows the Top H.K for both the Horde and the Alliance, as well as a ranked player list based on participation and performance within Battlegrounds.

There will be rewards for the Top 1 H.K of each faction and bracket. Of course, everyone who appears within the Top 20 or Top 10 Most active players list will also receive a proper compensation for their participation and effort.

The rewards are: Top 1 HK (each faction, every bracket):

Most active 80 players (each faction):

Most active other brackets (each faction):

It won’t matter who the winner is, every Top 1 H.K from any bracket will have their rewards (both Alliance and Horde). The same will happen with the most active players, everyone who appears in the activity lists will have the rewards (both factions).

Those items are items not available in our shops, so the only way to get them is by participating and ranking up in the Tournament.

At the same time as the Weekly faction-wide rewards, these rewards will be active upon restart of the Tournament each Friday at 15:00 PM ST.

These are the rewards for the next week Tournament winner:

  • Extra Wintergrasp Marks of Honor.

  • Extra Honor.

  • Extra experience in Dungeons.

  • Small amount of Arena Points upon finishing a level 80 BG.

  • 25% emblem drop chance upon finishing a WoTLK Random Heroic Dungeon (Frost for ICC attuned players)

  • Extra emblem drop from certain WoTLK Raid Bosses (Frost for ICC attuned players)

Thank you for your participation and enjoy it!

BG Tournament: Score system update (Friday 20th).

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

We have decided to update the Score system for the BG Tournament. After the next Friday 20th, instead of just counting the BG wins, a certain amount of points will be granted to a faction per win, based on the bracket.

This will balance things a bit more and will also allow us to introduce new features to the Tournament (City Raiding, Wintergrasp…etc).

The point distribution (for the next week) per win will be the following:

-Level 80 Battleground: 5 points.
-Rest of brackets: 1 point.

This point distribution is subject to change during certain weeks due to specific challenges and objectives requirements.

Thank you for the feedback and suggestions.

Happy Ho-Ho-Holidays and Winter Veil!

Hello community!

We would like to take advantage of the Winter’s Veil seasonal event to wish you Happy Holiday on behalf of the staff of Dalaran-WoW.

In this festive season, we have to remember having Joy, Love, Peace, and Hope. Joy killing your enemies in the Battleground, Love when you see that hard achievement pop after a long struggle, Peace when you end Wintergrasp after an even battle and Hope when you are looting the Lich King and you want to see the Invincible. May your heart be full of them this season!

Greatfather Winter has a list of all those who have been naughty, but if you were good and patient, you will get your presents under the big tree from Ironforge or Orgrimmar on the morning of December 25th. If you did leave some milk and cookies for him, of course.

Rescue the Reindeer, use the Preserved Holly to make your mount more festive, throw snowballs to each other, use the gnomish machines to transform yourselves as little helpers and kill your enemies, because being small and Santa-like dressed does not mean you need to be merciful with the other faction.

Let it snow with the handful of snowflakes you gather from the Winter Revelers, a bit of cold never hurt anyone during this special time of the year, even less after blowing some kisses under the mistletoe.

We really hope you enjoy it in your WotLK Home and have a wonderful time during these special days. We also want to thank you for your constant support and collaboration and of course, we also would like to thank every staff member that helps with their passion and devotion for this project.
