A New Fast-Paced PvP Game Mode In ESO: Battleground
We have mentioned that the Morrowind will come to The Elder Scrolls Online with a new fast-paced PvP game mode, Battlegrounds. According to the official explaint, Battlegrounds are very different from traditional Alliance War combat, so let's talk about more about this brand-new mode.
First of all, Battlegrounds are small-group PvP matches, a game won't last any longer than 15 minutes; a very different experience from the epic campaigns of Cyrodiil. If you're looking for some quick-and-dirty action, Battlegrounds are the perfect place for an exciting PvP experience.
Battlegrounds are designed to be short, bloody affairs between three teams of four players (4v4v4). Unlike PvP in Cyrodiil, teams in Battlegrounds are not bound by Alliance, but are made up of players from any of the three factions. In Battlegrounds, you're not fighting for Queen Ayrenn, High King Emeric, or Jorunn the Skald-King, but for the Pit Daemons (Green), Fire Drakes (Orange), or Storm Lords (Purple). The glory and spoils are yours for the taking!
How To Join A Battleground
Joining a Battleground is a similar process to queuing for a dungeon. Simply navigate to the Group & Activity Finder menu and select Battlegrounds. You can queue solo or as a member of a party, and you are able to specify a desired level range (10-49 or 10-50) with the game type randomly determined. Like the Alliance War, you are able to join a Battleground as long as your character is at least level 10, but you will also need to own a copy of ESO: Morrowind to play (either via upgrade or the full game). When entering a Battleground your character is battle levelled in the same way they are when entering Cyrodiil.
Three Battleground Game Types
Three unique Battleground game types are available in Morrowind, and each one offers a different kind of action. In each game type, you'll win by either reaching the point limit or by having the highest total by the end of the match.
Team Deathmatch - Team Deathmatch is perfect for those who don't want to worry too much about mundane things like “objectives" or “teamwork." Find and destroy enemy player characters with each kill granting your team points.
Capture the Flag - Capture the Flag mode is a more structured attack-and-defend styled game type that will be most enjoyed by those who thrive as part of a team. Capture your enemies' flags and return them to your base while carefully defending your own.
Domination - Domination will be favored by those who like capture-and-hold gameplay. Seek out, capture, and hold special locations on the map to earn your team points. A captured point will grant your team points for as long you have it.
Three Battleground Arenas You Will Fight
There are three unique arenas you'll fight in at launch and each Battleground has its own unique sense and style:
• Ald Carac: A dilapidated ruin of an ancient Dwemer city
• Ularra: An old overgrown Daedric worshipping site
• Foyada Quarry: A quarry set in the shadow of Red Mountain
You can earn points as you capture, defend, and kill, depending on the game mode when participating in a Battlegrounds match. Moreover, you can earn medals for unique deeds that are related to the game type:
• Dealing damage
• Making killing blows
• Earning kill streaks
• Capturing or defending flags
• Taking damage
• Healing flag carriers or defenders
After the contest ends, your points and medals contribute to end-game rewards, including Alliance Points, Experience Points, and items. On top of this, there will also be a host of new Achievements that are based on and reward Battlegrounds play. For example, you can earn Achievements for defeating enemy players, winning games, or capturing flags.
One of the highlights of Battleground is competing in Battlegrounds places you on the weekly Battleground Leaderboards. These Leaderboards last seven days and are broken into unique game mode categories. The top players are ranked on the Leaderboards, but you will be able to check your current position in the total list if you don't make the cut. Depending on your final position on the Leaderboard when the week is up, you'll earn rewards.
