The Basics

Warsong Gulch is a 10v10 capture the flag battleground. As WSG is a mirrored map, neither faction holds a geographical advantage. The objective for WSG is to cap the enemy flag 3 times within 20 minutes. Currently, capture the flag battlegrounds often end in ties or 1-0 wins. In the case of a draw, the team to cap last wins the game.

Welcome Summer to Skill Capped

by Olivia // May 27, 2014

You may have noticed a new writer’s stealth appearance on Skill Capped, with a piece on the changes to flag carrying in RBGs.

We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Summer to the Skill Capped team, where she’ll be focusing mostly on her area of expertise – Rated Battlegrounds.

Summer has been playing World of Warcraft since 2009. Starting in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, she was an avid PvE player, heroic raiding throughout the Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria expansions. Having experienced three expansions of raiding content she has hung up her raiding boots in exchange of the new challenge of PvP content.

Summer is now part of the highest rated RBG guild in the US, with the opportunity to experience rated battlegrounds with some of the best players the US has to offer. Teamed with one of the best RBG groups in the world she is able to bring you up to date information about hotfixes, provide RBG guides and explain the latest content.

In her spare time Summer enjoys playing in team environments, trying to convince her friends to die with her in arena, drinking tea, learning as much as she can about PvP and of course being part of the Skill Capped English female writers team, because England is the best.
