The official World of Warcraft site has been updated with news about some new things coming to PvP when Warlords of Draenor goes live later this year. The team has plans to add "skirmish" PvP matches, basically unranked 2v2 or 3v3 events that will reward players with honor, small amount of Conquest points and/or a random item. In addition, spectator invites will be made available to give viewers a chance to check out high-end tournament action.
Our new Spectator Invite system will allow a match organizer to invite two teams to play against each other in a PvP spectacle called a War Game. Then, when the match begins, everyone in the match organizer’s party will be able to watch those two teams duke it out. We’ll also be opening this feature up to add-on developers so they can come up with tools for tournament organizers to customize how the match is presented on the screen. Finally, we’ll be providing Tournament Mode gear—a special set of gear that can only be used in War Games—to help tournament runners ensure that all players are on equal footing.
