World of Warcraft adds 2 new Battlegrounds

Blizzard released a new World of Warcraft patch today, opening two new Battlegrounds. Once you enter the PvP queue for your clan by entering into certain portals in certain areas, you go on about your business until it's your turn. You can battle in Alterac Valley and/or Warsong Gulch.
Both have unique game types and requirements, and both will reward players with unique items.

Alterac Valley is open to players level 51-60 and allows a maximum of 40 and a minimum of 30 players per team. On the mountainous and snow-blanketed map, each army will attempt to destroy a series of enemy towers and an opposing computer-controlled general.

Warsong Gulch is open to levels 21-60 and is divided into battles between levels 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, and 51-60, with a maximum of 10 players on each side. The hilly, forested map is much smaller than Alterac Valley. The battle format for Warsong Gulch is capture the flag, with each base, located on opposite sides of the battlefield, housing a flag.
I don't like PvP yet. Bad memories. One thing that made me hate Diablo over Blizzard's online service was the fact I always got whupped by people who had all of these items I never even heard of. I'd die before I even got within 10 feet of them. That's my whole perception of player vs player, you're going to lost to the more skilled cheater. Now and days, with Blizzard closing accounts left and right, this issue is probably resolved but I'm not paying $15 a month to find out.
