<p>I love playing the capture the flag game in Ganak.  I like how each match is different from the last.  Some go well and some go horribly wrong.  lol    It is so much more fun than rolling through another shard zone for the 100th time which is going to be the exact same battle as the previous 99 times.</p><p>it's FUN, that's why I do it.</p>

I like the challenge of going up against other players, and  seeing how I can better my own play Style in PvP.</p>

<p>I play it because it sates my desire to just run in and spam blues until everything is dead. Much more satisfying on people rather than npc's.</p>

<p>BGs are so fun. I don't play on a PvP server because I hate getting killed when I am questing or harvesting so it is a nice to be able to PvP when I want.</p><p>I really enjoy the strategy for each of the different zones .</p><p>I think the battlegrounds gear is cool looking so I will keep playing til I get at least one of my toons a full set</p><p>I like being able to get xp from playing BG so it is one of my ways of getting to 90</p>

<p>alt way of getting gear. If the gear was BG only I would never go back to them, as many others.</p>

<p>1. BG is different & a lot of fun,</p><p>2. PvE had gotten stale,</p><p>3. Earn xp & items</p><p>In fact, BG may fuel me to get back to the PvE world where I can focus on AAs, masters, and other items that would improve me for BG.</p>

<p>Why am I in BGs? They are fun and if it wasn't for them I would /cancel today.</p><p>SF is a small, sad excuse for an Expansion. I did not rush, I did not grind I went through the natural progression of quests at about 3-4hours a day 3-4 days a week (maybe more than ultra casual but certainly not hard core) And here I am out of quests for the most part (and since I spent most of last expansion grinding out gray quest after gray quest leveling my wife's healers to max level and AA I have very little left to do in lower tiers as well).</p><p>Expansion is over for me, I will raid on occasion but I hated grinding the same dungeons 100's of times last expansion and this expansion is not even a month old and the only content left is grinding the same expansions over and over again... AGAIN.</p><p>BGs are fun refreashing a different beast each time I Queue up. /shrug to each their own I suppose but I suppose even it will get boring after 15 months :p</p>

<p>I did it just to see how it was an actually liked it.. World PVP is always made me mad which is why I'm no on a PVP server (that and my wife plays and she HATES PVP)</p><p>And to the Dude who want PG to be kept on PVP servers, it has it's own server, so technicaly BG is kept on to PVP servers.</p>

<p>I originally started for the PvP merchant jewelry.  But then I noticed that my 88th character was slowly getting some xp.  Though it isn't as fast as power grinding, this kind of slow leveling actually feels fun.</p><p>I've come to really like the Ganak map.  Also Smugglers feels fun.  But I really dislike Klak and it's tiny kill box of a zone.  Unfortunately most of the tokens that I need come from there.  Though I am learning how to flow through that zone, which is starting to make things a bit better.</p>

<p>I am having fun with it.  Typically I am in a mission seconds after I que up.  It is over fairly quickly so no real time invested and I come out with either a little reward or an added bonus for winning.   Having a very close match with less that a minute left when the outcome is unknown is about as exciting as it gets.  Running around gankin players 20 levels lower than myself or mining wiki before running quest 100014 gets old at times.</p><p>I am glad EQ2 put BG into the game.  When I get tired of it I always have the option to do something else.  Thank you and good job Sony!</p>

<p>I jumped in for the first time last night.  What a blast!  I stayed up about an hour past when I should have doing "just one more" each time.  Unlike Dareena above, I found that I really did enjoy Klak.  Of course, I was playing my warlock and with the map being small the other groups are often clustered.  I found that....convenient.  <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> </p><p>In fairness, my teams probably lost as much as they won but I still had a great time. Organization seemed to be the key.  Working as a team. </p>

They're fun, and they're a gear shortcut instead of running instances.

<p><span style="font-size: small; font-family: georgia,palatino; color: #00ff00;">I did not really think that I would like it but I tried it and had a blast, I appreciate the challenge and being forced to look in a new way on how I play my class. I get the feeling of exitement in BGs that I have not felt in EQ2 for a long time. The equipment is a bonus for me as I would never have the chance to get PVE stuff of a similar quality as I do not raid.</span></p>

<p>Why do I play BG?</p><p>I said I would never play it. I said it was the worst idea I have heard of...pitting professional PvP folks up against PvE toons. I mean...come on..who's stupid idea was this. I logged in one time to mock those that played the BG's and to confirm my thoughts that the BG was such a waste of resources.</p><p>I am now that PvE character that want's to vote the AFK'ers out, smash the face's of the enemy with my shield and completely demolish any apposing faction that gets in my way. Tokens....my precious tokens...give them all to me now so I can get my next piece of BG Fabled gear!</p><p>Some times trying new things will change how you think about something...I for one never knew crow could taste so good. There is some irony in that.</p><p>Don't mock it untill you have tried it!</p>

<p>Gear is my primary goal.  And the AA isn't terrible if one can't find an instance group.</p><p>But I do have fun and may still play after I get all the items/XP I want...especially Ganak.  It stirs up fond memories of playing way-too-much Quake CTF in college.</p><p>I find Smugglers kind of dull except for the odd game that your team is actually somewhat organized.  Gears is OK, but I wish it were more competitive and the map more interesting...too much dominance whether you're winning or losing.  I may not play those maps after I get all the tokens I need.</p>

<p>BG's give me a sense of action that PVE just doesn't.  It's interesting, at the moment, and we've got nothing but time to hit 90.  I jump out and quest grind or just aoe butcher for fun in PVE.  I PL people for fun in PVE...  I don't have to do anything so inane as "pull 8 encounters AOE, repeat" in BG's, each encounter is a unique experience.</p>
