I like the changes, but they need a few more. Reinforcements from the mines need to go up 1 every 5 seconds. For the most part as-is, you're not going to run out of reinforcements, but I like the ability for them to keep a turtle to a minimum. (in theory, the team that turtles will lose due to the other side being able to capture towers while the defense lingers in their base while the other side can capture mines and still throw themselves pointlessly at the enemy and just pick off a few here and there to whittle down the enemy).I also think that there needs to be approximately %50 more honor per kill while in AV (and other BG's as well) to make up for the fact that they all kinda suck and we were hoping that they'd bump the honor from the non-AV BG's to match AV's honor so we can just play them to have fun in our BG of choice rather than farm AV for honor. A losing match of AV... can be rather disheartening to say the least. I lost a match where I got a grand total of 200 honor over 30 mins of time, all of it from HK's because my team didn't believe in capturing towers, and got stuffed at Balinda and gave up once they saw the allies had taken frostwolf, still believing that it was a zerg rush to the end. However, you can get around 1k from a winning AV if you're on defense and max your HK's. (I get around 100/game now, which combined with bonus honor from the win can bump up to around 1k maybe a bit more). And I've never been in a game that's lasted longer than 30 mins now, and we've never lost due to no more reinforcements, or won a game due to reinforcements being depleted on the other side, so I'm not sure the mechanic is working as anything more than a warning to not turtle the game. (and if so, that's fine I guess). I'd personally bring back the LT's, and put them inside the towers. They're far too easy right now for a single person to stealth zerg them, and with them being worth so much it's not really fair that they can do that. Or at least some elite with a buttload of HP that can't be soloed by 1 or 2 stealthers going and ninja'ing the towers. Something easy enough for a 5-man squad, but impossible to ninja. I know the real answer is "have your people defend" but realistically i don't think that'll ever really happen, since teams tend to defend at Bal/Galv, which is never enough to do more than slow the enemy down and peeling people off to defend towers... yeck. But i like the changes overall, so hooray for the new AV.
