Rated Battlegrounds FAQ

Rated Battlegrounds FAQ - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

The World of Warcraft team has published a new FAQ about the upcoming Rated Battlegrounds that will arrive with the Cataclysm expansion on December 7th. Rated Battlegrounds are only open to level 85 players and will offer a chance to gain enough rating to purchase top-level PvP gear.

Q. What are the normal benefits of winning a Rated Battleground?

A. When you win a Rated Battleground, you will be rewarded Conquest points, up to your weekly cap. Weekly caps are individual for each player and are based on your highest single PvP rating from the previous week (the cap resets on Tuesdays). This rating can be derived from your 2v2, 3v3, or 5v5 Arena rating or your Rated Battleground rating.

Q. What Rated Battleground rating do players start out with?

A. Players start at zero Rated Battleground rating and progress upward from there. If you lose a battle, your Rated Battleground rating will only be reduced if that rating is currently higher than your Match Making Value (MMV). For the most part, a rating only goes up.

Get ready to take those high level 'toons out of mothballs to participate in the Rated Battlegrounds. In the meantime, read more here.
