I actually love the AV we have now. I played the old AV once, and I thought it was probably the least fun I'd had in WoW, short of getting ganked and corpse camped. I'd ever tired. "Hey, everyone, let's get stuck in bottlenecks for the next 2 hours! Yay!"The new one moves at a decent clip, rewards teamwork, gives a good amount of honor for the time it takes, and, and this one is key, almost never bogs down. In WSG, there's the horrible "same 2 people have the flags for 15 minutes" crap, even with the new debuffs. In AB and EotS, it's usually obvious, very quickly, which side is going to win. The rest of the match is just running down the clock, getting HKs (or getting farmed), and getting irritated at your own team for failing to defend/attack appropriately or skillfully. In addition, time spent in a losing non-AV game is time wasted, with almost no honor and one mark for 20-30 minutes of play.AV as it stands now is, hands down, the best bg in the game, both for hardcore players and casuals alike. There's always something potentially useful to do, and turtles, while they do happen, are easily broken. It's possible to come from behind, but getting ahead early is rewarded. And, yes, there's really only one or two good strategies (either everyone zerg, or 30 zerg, 10 hold towers long enough to slow enemies), but that's true of the others as well.
