so I've seen that a lot of people claim that the mount has hurt roaming a lot. why not have a map dedicated to smaller battles? would this destroy the spirit of roaming or make it better, since fights would be found faster and the quality of those fights would (hopefully) be better? mount disabled ofc, lol.
BIG FAT EDIT
multiple instances, disable squads, only 5 person parties allowed in, teams sorted randomly, best of 5 rounds (or however many), teams locked at beginning of match, maybe winning gives normal wvw server a buff (open to ideas here, could even have normal warscore activities - 3 towers etc)
