Quick Summaries of Each Battleground's Basic Strategies

Strategies by Battleground

This is not a library of all possible WoW bg strategies. These are examples of strategies that some teams have used. I put them here to help show people how to plan their own battles. If you want to win, you have to devise your own plans and adapt them to the strengths and weaknesses of your team.

Tactics by Battleground

Because tactics are specific actions, they tend to apply in specific situations. To make them easier to read I've grouped them as offensive and defensive. If a tactic applies to both offense and defense, I try to mention it in both places.

As above, this is not a library of all possible WoW bg tactics. These are examples of tactics that some teams have used.
