    Blackrock Progressive Season - A new way to play!



    Greetings Warmane community,

    With the increased interest in playing the PvP bracket on Frostmourne, with its progressive gear meta, we decided to form a new possible way of playing on Blackrock. We are excited to announce, Blackrock Seasonal mode.

    In essence, Blackrock Seasonal mode and all characters who decide to play in the progressive mode will have their gear and interactions limited to the progressive limit of Frostmourne. Blackrock Seasonal will progress alongside Frostmourne's PvP seasons and reasonable gear will be offered to players at each stage.

    In order to join the Blackrock seasonal mode, it is essential to create a new character. The character will be immediately in the seasonal mode. Players will be able to opt-out of the system and return to normal Blackrock mode, any time they desire, however, they will not be able to return to seasonal mode once they do, so be careful with your choices.

    The starting gear selection will be similar to what Frostmourne players will have at their disposal at the very beginning. The starting gear set is Crafted Rare Set (average item level of 180) and gear process is similar (likely identical) to Frostmourne, so no players will have an unfair advantage. Additionally, Blackrock players who posses seasonal characters, will have access to the marketplace similar to the one on Frostmourne. Opted-out players will see no difference in their gameplay.

    Blackrock Seasonal mode is scheduled to go live on May 01, 2021 at 16:00 server time.

    Kind regards,
    Warmane

    So no explanation why faction change now cost coins on blackrock when its been free for years?

    Great news! I like this but I got 1 question:

    1) Will we be able to trasnfer our honor from some old blackrock char to new progressice character like we can trasnfer it from alt to alt right now?

    Cuz when malaco gave up the server he gave up every free to play idea on Blackrock.

    Blackrock started as a super free to play pvp based realm after merge now you need to spend 7 days 24-h farming stupid BG's offset cuz honor rates are same as on Icecrown and starting with rele gear fighting into shadowmournes & full s8 players on 1.4k mmr just tells you how dead the cross arena is even though it's crossrealm lol.


    Blackrock is turning into cash server where things are hard to grind but easy to purchase. Thanks malaco

    We've had the free-to-play model for quite a while. It became stale and needed to be changed. We are not against running it as such again in the future, if it's appropriate. Blackrock does not fund it's hardware, but we do not mind or have any issues with that. Quite contrary to the popular opinion, we're personally fond of the realm. We will run it as long as there's players interested in it. We're just trying out new things.

    This seasonal change has no effect on normal gameplay of the realm. Anyone who is not interested in it, does not have to play it. Same as twinking ability. For your information, the person behind this seasonal idea is the same one you say 'gave up ideas' and also the same person who decided to cease free-for-all-gear model.

    No, this is not possible.

    This was an unintended result of activation of free faction changes on Frostmourne and removing store features for our decommissioned realm Outland. In other words, it was an accident. It has been fixed now.

    "accident" ? It's been like this for a extremely long time, and even before when you had to use in-game commands to change race, factions and such it was free.
    So you are saying that we now actually have to pay coins for something that has pretty much always been free?

    Yes, an accident. When we were removing Outland features from the store, it got caught in the process. It was unintended.

    I get that this has zero effect at lvl 80 but it massively affect your lvl 19 twinks on Blackrock who are forced to swap factions to get certain bis items, we also used it to balance out faction inbalance in battlegrounds. There needs to be some way that the faction specific quests can be available to do for both factions, right now we have tons of players who are stuck on unwanted factions cause of this.

    Free faction change has been only disabled for 2 days. It has been now re-enabled. Perhaps you were not aware that you can faction change for free over the website?

    It shall update. We have re-enabled it just shortly, once we have noticed that it was disabled. We shall sweep this thread of these posts in a short while, as they're no longer necessary. Thank you for your notice!

    @Proterean so what is the point for people to grind frostmourne and play pvp if blackrock can just que with bis gear much faster than the fm players who has to grind for everything? What is the logic behind this? )

    Logic can be found, if you actually try to find it. Blackrock players in seasonal mode have no easy access to BiS gear. They have slightly weaker starting gear than players on Frostmourne do. BiS has to be obtained the same way Frostmourne players do. By playing.

    Please read the original post for more details.
