Have you ever stayed at a club long enough to get kicked out? It’s kind sad – you never want to be the first to arrive to a empty dance floor ( unless your there to stake the pool tables out) and nor do you want to be the last to leave, kicked out by the bouncer. It’s just not kool.
Once a BG ends no one stays around that 2 min to gloat, or cheer about a victory. You may have just overcome the worst odds to achieve greatness with awesome teamwork, proven the naysayers wrong ” Omg no one here is over 5k GS – we are going to lose.” ( well we won that one one anyway *blows raspberry) but no one gets to cheer about the victory – everyone has already left.
Often there is no warning you are about to achieve a victory – you still locked in combat – when suddenly your dots stop ticking, your weapons return to their sheaths and your combat embrace freezes, and the battle has ended score chart fills up your screen. It’s too late to even say “Hey awesome job guys!” No one is there to see.
Is there anyone out there..Somebody…
You have won, or lost, and you leave as quickly as possible.
You see a sports team after a victory patting each other on the back, engaging in manly hugs that don’t touch fronts – or some jumping around big smiles on their faces.
When we win a battleground, there is no time for expressions of joy and elation. We slink off to our own realms stoic. Ho hum..
Would more people Pvp if they could get a sense of accomplishment from it?
I still think its kind of amazing how quickly a flock of sheep players who don’t know each other, can work together to achieve a goal, and victory. Sometimes it just works – you click together as a team, and sometimes it doesn’t and enough finger pointing happens in the game that 2 more minutes with those people isn’t going to accomplish anything. On those rare occasions when you do have that perfect synergy. It’s sad when it ends. Because they are the battles I look forward to, and hope to find in the myriad of crap.
It’s a shame we don’t have the option to keep the same team going into another battle, much like we can do in LFG’s
This sentiment is because between now and Cata I’ll be in BG’s a lot . Raw gems still sell well, and I am 36500 odd honor kills away from “Of the Alliance” I might see how much of a dent I can make in it in the next few weeks because I am running out of things I want to do.
I am back to holy priest healing in BG’s again in a mix of Pve/Pvp healing gear cause I am working on the theory that healers following people who need healing means that they are killing things = more Honor kills. Means I am being productive in a BG without HK farming the in the middle. Grrrrrr. I tried doing some more Av Premades, the honor was awesome, the Hk’s not so, and it sounds kind of bad but the best thing for Hk’s is a Av Turtle, but yes the object of the BG is to win first. Hk’s 2nd.
