WoW’s First Cross-Language Battlegroups Go Live

During World of Warcraft’s server maintenance tomorrow, Blizzard will implement the new cross-language battlegroup feature on European realms.

From that point, selected battlegroups will be made up of players from across Europe instead of just those from the same localisation. Anyone worried that WoW’s battlegrounds will suddenly be filled with more people shouting orders in a foreign language can relax – according to the cross-language battlegroup FAQ, all players on one side will be selected from the same language:

“Each faction will be comprised of players from realms of the same language as yours. You might participate in a Battleground where the Alliance is formed by players from English realms and the Horde is formed by players from realms of another language, or the other way around. You will not find players from different language realms on the same side in the Battlegrounds.”

The affected realms are detailed below:

Nightfall, Crueldad
Realms from English Battlegroup Nightfall and Spanish Battlegroup Crueldad will be united as Cruelty/Crueldad.

Némésis, Hinterhalt
Realms from French Battlegroup Némésis and German Battlegroup Hinterhalt will be united as Embuscade/Hinterhalt (Ambush).
