Rated BGs will require a large amount of coordination and planning for this game's PvP standards. The organizational requirements are closer to that of a raiding guild, in fact. Getting acquainted early with what's involved in the Rated BG system is key to hitting the ground running in December.
The size of the battleground is important to know, because the Rated BGs available on any given week will be determined by the group size. On a 10 vs 10 Rated BG week you would queue up and be randomly placed in either WSG, BfG, or TP. Each week the schedule will rotate between 10 and 15 player Rated Battleground groupings.
