I haven't seen anyone mention this, but this looks like a clone from the World of Warcraft Battleground map Arathi Basin. I found it lots of fun.

Teams with voicechat will dominate over those who don't. Well coordinated teams who spot enemy positions well to capture the undefended spawn points almost always won.

I think its a copy of Dawn of War 2, but no one is an RTS fan these days -_-

The "territorial control" playstyle hardly originated from WoW. It's just that WoW is a popular example of it. Frankly, Riot's implementation looks to be a lot more fun than AB.

Next time don't look with your eyes closed.

Also this...i don't understand why people think WoW started this type of game mode.

I never said WOW started this game type. I just said it looked like a clone of that map. Many people have played WOW and would agree because it is so popular.

BTW I checked like the top 5 pages for any posts before I made mine, so it's not exactly front page news like you seem to believe.

There is nothing wrong with copying a good idea and making it better. Microsoft has made a killing from doing it.

The only similarity is they both have 5 capture points. Though, even if they were really similar, I wouldn't really mind since AB was by far my favorite BG.
