Fake Patch Notes Addendum, or "Blizzard Takes Hints!"

It is, in fact, official!
"Speaking of PvP, we're also hard at work on our team-balancing feature for the battlegrounds. This feature won't be ready for this next content patch, but will be added in a patch sometime after the expansion launches. Team balancing will help ensure that the teams facing each other in each of the game’s battlegrounds will be as evenly matched as possible." (December 1, 2006)

"The matching system is currently on schedule for the next major content patch. As anything, that is of course subject to change, but we're doing what we can to ensure it's release." (February 8, 2007)
Even if it only helps a little with twinks, that will make a huge difference in battlegrounds. Thank you Blizzard! And thank you Malloc, for sending me this beautiful tidbit. ^_^


  1. Um... actually, this could be a not-so-good thing. Especially if we're going to be operating as a pre-made battlegrounds group. We aren't twinks, exactly... but we ARE good.

    I guess a lot of it depends on how they do the pairings. Will it be by gear class? That could make sense... you would have twinks fighting twinks and (at the higher levels) avoid a Tier 5 power-raider group against a greens-and-blues Pick-Up-Group. Or will it be by lifetime kills? THAT could be very bad... since I plan to be doing a good bit of PvP and hope to be decent at it, that makes my life just that much harder as I grind toward my uber-PvP gear, since I'm now killing those who are at least as experienced and as talented as myself.

  2. I got the impression that it was going to be about gear. <3
