Quick one this Monday. Cynwise talks briefly (for him) about corpse running in battlegrounds. Since we've put together our own fledgling Rated BG team, I've been on the lookout for the little things that differentiate a PvP player from a PvE player. The majority of our team is PvE players that are trying out PvP (some for the first time). It's something I've done for a long time now, and I'm realizing there are a lot of small things that you just don't learn in PvE.
Off hand, things like when to use CC and how to use terrain to your advantage come to mind. A lot of these are things I do naturally now, that I never really realized I picked up. When one of my guildies doesn't do it, I have a mini-WTF moment before I realize: they just don't know. It's amazing sometimes to step back and reflect how different the two aspects of the same game can really be. They honestly require a whole different skill-set, IMO.
Anyway, Cyn's explanation of corpse running is a good one. It's something I could use to get better at as well. I've only really done it in randoms in order to avoid someone GY camping. It's never really occurred to me in the RBG's, though it should because the rez timer is so much longer there. Also, with the return to GY button, there's really not a downside. Tick off the timer in your head as you run, and return if it looks like you're not going to gain an advantage. I mean, why not?
So check it out. Share it with your team. Go forth, and prosper. (And all that junk.)
