Remembering the Fourth War in World of Warcraft:

The Fourth War in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth was the largest open world Massive Multiplayer campaign since Wintergrasp in Wrath of the Lich King. Ever three hours the Battle for Nazjatar begin, an unlimited number of Alliance and Horde players fought for control of five battlefield objectives. RUIN organized a powerful Alliance coalition, over seventeen thousand members joined the RUIN Warmode Communities in addition to our thirty two full and active traditional guilds established on all high population realms. Coordination of battles throughout the day required a strong, capable officer corps and active well trained Alliance force.

Hundreds of thousands of individual players took part in the Incursions, open world battles and structured Battle for Nazjatar. With the possible exception of Wintergrasp, a 120 versus 120 battle space in Wrath of the Lich King this period marked the most extensive and sustained fighting in World of Warcraft!

RUIN is proud to announce successful completion of the campaign, having never lost a single battle in which both teams started with a zero to zero score.

BATTLE FOR NAZJATAR

Battle for Nazjatar is a special World PvP event across all of Nazjatar in Patch 8.2 Rise of Azshara. Earn Nazjatar Battle Commendations for rewards like Essences and even mounts!

Each battle lasts 45 minutes, or until one faction reaches 3000 points. Both factions try to control five points in Nazjatar: Tidal Conflux, Alathi Spire, Thoras’tal Spire, Zin-Azshari, Lemor’athra Spire. Points are earned through holding Control Points, killing the enemy faction, or enemy NPCs.
