WoW: Insider PvP Interview

by Dhruin, 2006-08-18 00:10:00
The latest WoW Insider has an <a href="http://www.wow-europe.com/en/misc/wowinsider/wowi09/interview.html" target="_blank">interview</a> with Tom Chilton on the past and future of PvP in WoW:<blockquote><em><b>Insider: The Honor System was introduced more than a year ago, on April 19, 2005. There were some PvP hotbeds when the PvP system was first introduced. Did you foresee those forming?</b><br><br>Tom Chilton: We knew that it was probably going to change the way people played a lot. It was probably going to get a lot more people to PvP than were doing so regularly, because there weren't a whole lot of reasons to do it before, other than just for its own sake. We figured that the amount of PvP was going to go up quite a bit.<br><br>We figured there would be some hotspots, but it was hard to predict exactly where. Even before we launched the Honor System, Tarren Mill and Southshore were hotspots already for the people that were PvPing, along with the Crossroads, so it wasna "!t any big surprise that those flared up more. The sheer degree to which they flared up was pretty surprising, but it was also interesting to see. It was pretty crazy actually playing in, too. I remember you could run up to Southshore or Tarren Mill, and you wouldna "!t really see what was going on, no players would load into the screen. And then, bam, theya "!d all load in at once and then, youa "!d die within a couple of seconds. It was pretty crazy.</em></blockquote>
