New Cataclysm Battleground: Twin PeaksAuthor: Frank | Filed under: Cataclysm Battlegrounds, Cataclysm Screenshots, News
Below is a brief guide to Twin Peaks. If you’re looking for a detailed guide on the topic, I can recommend Killer Guides’ Cataclysm Guide. In case you are looking for something with more step-by-step instructions, you can also give Vivi’s Unoffiicial Cataclysm Guide or Uma’s Guide a try.
Blizzard revealed details about the new 10vs10 battleground in Cataclysm: Twin Peaks. The rough summary is a WSG with more interesting terrain. Two graveyards for each faction, an asymmetrical area layout, a single bridge crossing the river (which can be crossed by swimming, albeit slower as well) all add to the tactical opportunities of the map. So while the bases of the faction are exactly the same, the surrounding areas are not.
From Blizzard’s description it makes it nearly sound like some TF2 maps – not a big a surprise considering that since the inception of the first battlegrounds, to the introduction of the Arena and recent PvP developments, Blizzard has added more and more non-MMORPG content. Blizzard thus continues to build multiple games into one (classical MMORPG, skill-based match games, mobile ‘fixes’…). It certainly makes one wonder how far the game has come. Maybe WoW two expansions from now will be as different from the current day as we are now from Vanilla. Who knows how far we really are away from World of Warville.
To get advanced content and recommended strategies about Twin Peaks, check out the Killer Guides Cataclysm Guide. As mentioned above, Vivi’s Unoffiicial Cataclysm Guide and Uma’s Guide aren’t a bad deal either, though their focus is more on detailed step-by-step walkthroughs (which I guess makes them very newbie-friendly).
