Release Week Extra: 12x rates

 How Battlegrounds work in Legion:
- Every player automatically gets stats that are near equal to item level 850!
- Base stats are: 
    - Agility, Intellect, Strength: 11475
    - Mastery, Critical Strike, Haste, Versatility: 4079 (~10%)
    - Stamina: 22000
- Some specializations may receive more/less of these stats (e.g. Frost DK gets +20% Stamina, Fire Mage gets -50% Mastery)
- The base Stats scale with your real item level by 1% for every 10 item level difference from 850 (e.g. for item level 800 you get -5%, for item level 910 you get +6%)
- The minimum item level downscale is -15% (iLvl 710), This means if you have item level 550 you still get a virtual iLvl of 710 during BG.
- Item stats are NOT added to these stats, only item level matters.
- Other stat bonuses (talent/buff/racial passive) are working on BGs!
   - Example:
Fire Mage iLvl 874
       - Intelligence = 11475 * 1.02 (2% bonus for 20 iLvl) * 1.3 (30% extra for Specialization) = 15215
       - Mastery = 4079 * 1.02 (iLvl) * 0.5 (-50% for Specialization) = 2080
       - Stamina = 22000 * 1.02 = 22440


 PVP Rewards:
Upon completion of a Random Battleground, players may receive:
- 150 Honor for winning, 30 Honor for losing
- 27 Gold for winning
- Legion PVP Gear (Rare or Epic) or Champion's Strongbox
- The chance of getting PVP gear increases with honor level.

 Champion's Strongbox can contain:
- Low level (e.g. WoD) PVP gear

 Upon completion of a Skirmish Battle, players may receive:
- 80 Honor for winning, 16 Honor for losing
