As far as we know, they are still scheduled for launch. Do you think the game needs them? I'm a guy who had somewhere around 400k HK's in WoW, all post BC, and played about 1000 huttball matches, you would think I would feel like "hell yeah," strangely I'm not.
In fact, I think battle grounds may hurt the game. The Wpvp in this game is organic. It's built around farming nodes, guild carts, scripts and such. Opportunity presents itself often. You get to choose if it's worth it to engage. I think battlegrounds could eventually dry all this up.
Gamers travel the least path of resistence for the most part. Even if there were no rewards, the least path to the engagment fix will be there, in battlegrounds.
What do you guys think?
edit - "Opportunities of engagement," to put it in perspective, during a typical battleground a person may get 20,30 kills. Since December 20th in AoW, I have about 140 pks.
