This is your chance to fight it out in front of a crowd

Blizzard's PvP discussion panel at last weekend Worldwide Invitational in Paris talked about everything PvP. The panel was made up of Tom Chilton (Lead Game Designer), and Cory Stockton (Lead Level Designer) and they covered lots of PvP information. In this third article covering the panel, Byron "Messiah" Mudry gives you the rundown on the upcoming Orgrimmar Arena, including what makes it unique.

The second new element in this arena is a fighting platform at each end of the arena. When a platform rises up anyone on it will be out of melee range from players on the ground, but still in affected by ranged abilities. Also while a platform is up a wall of spikes will rise separating that area from the rest of the arena. The pillar on each side of the arena alternates being up or down. Players will need to make a choice to either move through the spikes and take damage or remain separated.
