Weekly Battleground Tournament: Faction-wise Rewards.

Drums of War can already be heard in the distance, an ancient call to defend your faction and sing ballads of victory in every tavern and city through Azeroth.

The eternal fight for power and domination it’s now a common effort; not only those prepared for the battle are the chosen ones to enjoy these challenges and rewards, everyone from the same faction is.

We are very glad to present to you our Weekly Battleground Tournament, a faction-wise collaborative event that will allow both the Alliance and the Horde to work together for glory. This event will be an ongoing Tournament and will start on the 6th of December.

This tournament is designed to promote PvP in a PvE focused server. Our intention is to encourage each faction’s participation in every Battleground’s bracket. We have tried to make it interesting with its cyclic form and the faction-wise rewards so any kind of player can overcome their PvP blockage and turn into the bloodthirsty enemies you have always feared.

With time, the PvP aspect should be more active thanks to the participation of the community. Therefore, we will be including more perks, rewards, and challenges to the Tournament as it increases in popularity.

For now, we have prepared a few initial rewards that will rotate each week and will benefit both the PvP and PvE aspects of the game while trying to increase the interest towards PvP gradually.

This Weekly Battleground Tournament should also contribute towards making the Northrend’s Heroic Dungeons and Raids more active thanks to the faction-wise perks.

How will it work?

The system is really easy to understand.

There will be a Battleground counter which will be reset every week (Fridays 15:00 p.m Server Time), the faction with more Battlegrounds won that week will be considered the winner and will be enjoying the faction-wise rewards until the next Friday’s reset.

For this, we have prepared a new PVP section on our website where you can see the weekly winner, Battleground statistics, Tournament history, active and upcoming rewards/perks…etc.

After each Friday’s Tournament reset, the rewards will be available for the winner faction. There is no need to do anything as a player: just enjoy the perks and keep pushing!

All the relevant information will be broadcasted everywhere each week: in-game notifications, website, our social networks…etc.

In the future, this website’s PvP section will also include some top rankings (H.Ks…etc), as well as some extra interesting data. We are also going to dedicate a space for Wintergrasp, Gurubashi Arena and capital cities raids into the Weekly Battleground Tournament along with the introduction of more enjoyable features.

How can you participate?

By just doing Battlegrounds. There is no need to do anything special, just participate in any kind of Battleground from level 10 to 80. Unless there are some specifications for a particular week, the level or the Battleground does not matter.

What are the Faction-wise rewards?

The faction-wise rewards are some perks that every player from the winning faction will be able to enjoy for a week, there is no need to participate in order to benefit from them though. It is a very similar case to the Stone-Keeper Shards from Wintergrasp.

There will be two kinds of rewards: static and random. The entire winner faction will benefit from them until the next reset.

Static rewards: These are the perks that will always be active for the current winner faction. If your faction wins, you can enjoy them at least until the next Friday’s reset.

A post with all the possible rewards and specifications will be released shortly.

Some of the initial static rewards:

  • Extra Honor.

  • Extra emblem drop from certain WoTLK raid bosses (e.g: Naxxramas last bosses from each wing, Ulduar’s Keepers…etc). Emblems will drop individually for each player, based on their character progression (Frost for ICC attuned players).

  • 25% chance to have an extra emblem drop upon finishing a WoTLK Heroic Dungeon through the RDF tool. Emblems will drop individually for each player, based on their character progression (Frost for ICC attuned players).

  • Extra XP in Dungeons and Battlegrounds.

Random rewards: These are additional perks that will be changing each week randomly and will be available for the winner faction.

Some of the initial random rewards:

  • Extra Wintergrasp rewards.

  • Battleground Marks of Honor available.

  • Extra reward/drop from Vanilla and TBC raids.

  • Vote/Donation Shop discounts.

  • Services discounts.

Regardless of the faction winner, the level 80 battlegrounds will grant a small amount of Arena Points during the Tournament.

A quick example:

  1. The Friday 6th of December the WBT will start.

  2. Then, the next week on Friday 13th the reset will happen at 12:00 pm and that faction who won the most Battlegrounds shall be declared the winner.

  3. A new week starts, therefore the Battleground counter starts from 0 again and all the static rewards become available for the winner faction, plus one of the random ones until the next reset.

  4. And this gets repeated every week.

Why this kind of Tournament?

Our intentions are to bring the competitive PvP scene back alive. We consider this to be one of the firsts steps. We think that by making it a faction-wise collaborative effort and rewards, would ease the participation and reinforce the faction feeling of victory. And by being able to collaborate no matter the level or the battleground will help towards a common goal: be the winners that week. So everyone with a bit of curiosity about PvP could help to achieve that weekly goal and, bit by bit, keep improving and get into the PvP scene more and more. Practice makes the master.

update_header

Hello community,


As you probably know, we are trying to help with the faction balance by disabling the faction transfer from the Alliance to the Horde, as well as reducing the prizes from the Horde to the Alliance. However, it is not working as faster as we originally thought it would.


Because of this, we have decided to go a bit further and offer to the Horde guilds FREE faction transfers as a whole, with the only requirement that all the characters who wish to be transferred must be at least level 70. Of course, we are also providing help with the Guild Bank for a smoother transition.


If you are interested and you want to help us balancing the factions, write us an e-mail to:dalaran.community@gmail.com with “Guild Name – Transfer” as a subject, please. We shall forward you more details and instructions about the process.


Remember to read carefully every detail which can be applied to the Wrath of the Lich King expansion from the Faction Change Service before transferring any character: http://wowwiki.wikia.com/wiki/Faction_Change_service


Thank you in advance to those guilds that support this initiative, and remember: Keep your friends close and your enemies closer!

Step forward.

Hello there,

 

As you might be aware, we have been performing more maintenances than the usual lately. Most of the changes and fixes that have been deployed are related to exploits that were spread across the community and some important spells, quests and dungeon fixes that were reported a while ago. The main reason of them, though, is to improve the performance of the server itself and to provide an improved quality to all the players before the incoming releases of Onyxia’s Lair and Icecrown Citadel.

 

The changes have been tested thoroughly but they are pretty delicate, so I will be prepared to deal with any unforeseen instability issue that may arise. By performing the changes one by one, we make sure to be able to find the source of the problem and to fix it pretty quick, in case it is required. Some known crashes that were affecting the server for the last few months have been fixed. As soon as a new one appears, we investigate it and deploy a fix for it as soon as possible. There could also be the case where a very unlikely crash happens a couple of times in a short period of time, but that does not mean that there are more crashes than the week before, it is basically bad timing, if we can call it that. We seek with perseverance stability and good performance.

 

We would like to thank you all for the patience you are having and we would also like to ask you to refrain from spreading rumors or false information about what is happening, since it will just mislead players.

 

We are going to drastically reduce the prices of the faction change for some time (Horde -> Alliance), with the intention of bringing a bit more of balance to the factions. Just for now, the transfers from the Alliance to the Horde shall be closed. This change will be active between today and tomorrow.

 

New prices for Horde characters:

 

  • 20 Vote Points.
  • 1 Donation Point.

 

During this week, I am planning to announce the Onyxia’s Lair Beta testing (most likely tomorrow) in the news and announcements section of the forums as well as in our Social Media, so that everyone becomes aware of it.

 

It may seem we are not going very fast, but our steps are steady. Thank you very much.

This Weekend, free faction change for Horde players.

Hello there community of Dalaran-WoW,

 

Free Faction Change this weekend for Horde Players on the Best WoW Blizzlike Server, enjoy the most retail like scripts on any Private Server.
As you probably have noticed already, there is some unbalance between both factions; there are much more horde players than alliance. So, just this weekend, from Friday to Sunday, we will open the faction change feature for those Horde players who wish to play with the Alliance side. Just Horde -> Alliance.

This faction change, is completely unidirectional and in no case will be reversed. If a player changes his faction for free this weekend, there is no possibility of retract/refund it unless he spends the correspondant Vote or Donation Points amount (We have implemented this option also by Vote Points recently).

Those who are interested, just will have to open a ticket anyday between Friday-Sunday (both Included) and ask it to one Game Master. Your character must be at least level 20.

Let’s see if we achieve to balance the population.

If you have any question about reputation, mounts…etc equivalences, take a look here .

Stay tunned in our forum’s official topic about this free faction change.

For all those who still don’t know our server, you can read some information related
Best wishes.
