"the battle will go down at a certain time, so everyone knows when to get to work and fight there."That sucks horribly.So now, as in Auchindoun, we'll be able to have a few minutes of world pvp action every couple hours. Wonderful. And, once again, you'll have to schedule your play time around the game designers' decisions, if you want to partake.Auchindoun is probably the worst pattern they could have used for this new zone.

Everyone was expecting some huge free-for-all warzone with siege weapons and constant battle whenever you wanted it--Alterac Valley without the queues. Total, lovely chaos.In reality, it's just a keep guarding a mine that is attacked/defended on a set schedule with NPCs. Blizzard will never "get" what it is people are wanting from world PvP. Warhammer, and to an extent Age of Conan, seem to be the only games that offer it.Blizzard just can't let go...it wants to control PvP as much as possible. That means schedules, scripted events, instanced duels, etc.
