In approximately two hours, we will deploy a hotfix to all WoW Classic realms that disables the exit portals from Warsong Gulch. Thereafter, players who need to exit the battleground will have to use the other means of doing so: /AFK.
We’ve seen an increasing number of reports of these portals being used in unfair ways, and we feel that taking this step eliminates the potential for unfair gameplay while making no change to the intended, legitimate flow of the battleground.
As always, we really appreciate and value all of the player feedback that raised the issue. Thank you!
Mixed feelings about this. On one hand I’m against changes that should be solved by PVP, on the other hand I’m also against random casual scrubs getting denied ANY honor by being MC’d out. They should at least be allowed to get the 1 mark for losing
Nah they removed the portals because priests was griefing players in an unreasonable way. Killing players by jumping off mountains and swimming out in lava etc is fine but having them walk out of a battleground is not.
priests was Mind controlling enemy players and get them out of WSG during vanilla, i personally made tons of ticket regarding that and Gm’s back then was replying with “that’s part of the game, avoid getting mc’d…etc” & portals was never removed.
so what i see now from current Blizz is…if tons of players report any issue? it will be changed ?!
Yeah agree. None of the people in my guild do it or have had it done to them, but it’s so stupid to remove this “feature”. What happened to all the “wonky quirks” that people were so in love with from vanilla?
It was pretty unknown until people came whining on the forums about it. /shrug
