RE: AV - What is vengeance? The AV bottlenecks besides the 5 afk players scattered around in stealth mode.Narrow Bottlenecks.1. North Dun Bunker lip of bridge. Flare it. Slow it. Archers will assist2. FWK - lower end of hill just outside Keep Towers. Flare it. Slow it. Archers will assist.At the above a 1v1 battle will usually be won be the defender.Broad Bottle necks.1. Between IW and SHGY2. Between IB and IBGYIt takes 5-10 defenders to make this bottleneck effective.FWGY is not a bottleneck at all. It can easily be passed with the alt tabed gy defenders not even noticing. This is a common Horde flaw thinking they are doing something useful at FWGY when the ally have already rolled by and are at the RH.I think the new AV is fine. Battlegroup distribution queues are the problem. I was ally and every AV was 40 horde and 20 ally. I went to a different battlegroup leveled a horde and guess what every AV was 40 ally and 20 horde. Blizzard doesn't have the queuing working correctly.Also being on D has fewer rewards in AV. Most seasoned AV players know a few people will take and defend 3-4 honor buildings and then the rest of the crew in AV is getting HK's. My personal BG points are much higher if I just stay with the large group and forget about doing anything with a GY or a tower or a bunker. I just need the quickest AV possible and then go into another one. If you are on D you will spend more time in ghost form then the rest of the team.
