About BG Defender

BG Defender (Based on AB Defender) gives you a little movable window with buttons to announce the number of incoming enemies at the base you're defending in most battlegrounds. There are also buttons to call for help or announce the base you're defending is safe. BG Defender will automatically pop up when entering a battleground and close after you leave.

/bgd - to show/hide window

/bgd help - to show all commands

AB Defender was created by Riel Kil'Jaeden GER EU, based on FaraFrames by Farang.
