World of Warcraft: New Battleground Brackets Announced

Posted Thu, Dec 02, 2010 by Saia

With Azeroth reeling from the Shattering, the World of Warcraft continues to change. This time it’s the brackets for battlegrounds. Announced on the WoW community site, there are some interesting changes afoot with new, smaller brackets and the ability to go into certain BGs at an even easier level. Check out the post below for the full details. I’m not a fan of battlegrounds but with changes like these, even I’m tempted to give these a go.

Blizzard Entertainment New Battleground Brackets

The uneasy armistice between the Horde and Alliance is steadily cracking beneath the strain of Deathwing's devastating return and the Shattering of Azeroth, heralding a new era of bloody conflict. The clash between the factions has also never been so hotly contested: Battleground brackets now match up teams more evenly. The new brackets span five levels each, except the final bracket composed of level 85 players:

10-14 30-34 50-54 70-74

15-19 35-39 55-59 75-79

20-24 40-44 60-64 80-84

25-29 45-49 65-69 85

Fighters can also join the battle in Arathi Basin, Eye of the Storm, and Alterac Valley at an earlier level than ever before:

Level 10 - Arathi Basin and Warsong Gulch

Level 35 - Eye of the Storm

Level 45 - Alterac Valley

Level 65 - Strand of the Ancients

Level 75 - Isle of Conquest

Level 85 - Battle for Gilneas and Twin Peaks

These changes should offer players a more consistently competitive experience in the Battlegrounds as their characters level, as well as provide for more exciting PvP conflict than ever before. Are you eager to try 35-39 Eye of the Storm? How about 45-49 Alterac Valley? Perhaps you'd like to cut your teeth on a 10-14 Arathi Basin.
