How many do we have now?
WSG, AB, AV, EotS, SotA, IoC, TP and BfG
And we really only have 3 different types of fights:
Capture the flag (WSG, TP), Capture bases (AB, BfG) and kill the enemy general/capture the fort (SotA, IoC, AV). with EotS being a mix between the first two.
What I think should be done is changing the BG's to be 1 of 3 types and allowing people to queue up fpr Capture the flag, Capture the base or kill the general and have the BG's just be maps for those types so we won't end up with half a million different battlegrounds that all vary just a tiny bit from each other.
Of course, EotS would have to be changed for that but just change where the flag is to a fifth base and that problem is solved (Also, widen the **** thing so you won't be knocked off all the @#%^ing time).
SotA should just be dumped, it's a retarded BG and the format is boring.
IoC and AV should be changed to work as a battle of attrition, where losing your general doesn't mean instant loss but where it's always about the number of reinforcements left, a.k.a. a deathmatch of sorts.
So then we'd be left with capture the flag, king of the hill and large scale deathmatch and various maps for each of those types of BG's (and 10v10, 15v15 and 25v25?). Plus there's always the possibility of adding one or more gimmicks to a map (vehicles, portals, giant goblin/gnome robots of doom?).
Ok, now you can tell me that my ideas are retarded and we'll devolve into shouting that class X is OP and class Y needs buffs.
