If you are a fan of the popular World of Warcraft (like me), this concerns you. According to reports, Blizzard has announced a brand new Mercenary mode to World of Warcraft's unranked PvP matches that will not let fans play as bad guys in the game.

The new Mercenary Mode for the game will be added in an upcoming patch. Apparently, it will allow players, whose factions are experiencing lengthy waiting periods, to fight for the other side as a mercenary just by talking to the agents located in their bases at Ashran.

The company states, "We'll be adding a feature that allows you to act as a mercenary for the opposite faction in PvP."

"Whenever your faction is experiencing a long wait time to get into Ashran or unrated Battlegrounds, agents of the enemy faction will appear in your base in Ashran (Stormshield for the Alliance, Warspear for the Horde).

"These agents will allow you to enter Ashran or Battlegrounds disguised as an enemy player, and actually fight as the opposite faction," the official page adds.

As far as the new Mercenary mode is concerned, when the player competes as a mercenary, they will still earn the same rewards as they would have by winning or losing as their own faction (with the exception of faction-specific achievements).

Apart from that, players will also have their races automatically changed into one appropriate for the opposite faction, while still inside the Battleground or Ashran.

"Perhaps most importantly, however, you'll experience much shorter queue times, as our matchmaking system will be able to fill up groups much quicker," it adds.

"Our goal with Mercenary Mode is to allow players who want to participate in Ashran or unrated Battlegrounds the ability to do so without having to wait through long queues, while still maintaining the spirit of the core Alliance vs Horde fantasy," the company concludes.
