I don't know about Horde side, but here is what I do Alliance side.I use #2 and #3 personnally, since you can turn around before you get to the barrel person (either the one throwing them or the one you throw them to).The trick there is to always get #2 and #3 and try to spot the point where you get the barrel, and turn quickly (mouse very helpful there of course).Once you get the rythm down, it's all good. I usually mess up at least once in there and today I've gotten 24 tickets. I'm sure I can get more tomorrow, my mount got exhausted once today.Hope it helps.

This. This is the way to win. Barrels 1 and 4 are traps. Avoid them. Alliance side, the turnaround points are just past the path up to the building for the pickup and just past the brewfest flag for the dropoff. You have enough time to hit the barrel, get to the pickup point, and then book it back to the same barrel before you get exhausted. You may miss a couple on your first try, but once you get it down you will get 30+ tokens every time. last year was harder, there was no third barrel, so you had to canter a bit, but with the extra barrel you can gallop the whole way.

I use #2 and #3 as well. Extra tip as you are coming close to the drop-off point (or pick-up) point, aim to the NPC, hold you left mouse button, rotate the camera 180 degrees, as soon as you see a barrel in the air, click your right mouse button. This will turn you around instantly, saving you multiple seconds on each turn.

I use #2 and #3 too, out of habit ; I used only #2 last year, timing jumps on accelerations.

I agree - this is the strategy I use, and even though I have a huge problem avoiding the tree after bucket 3, I still end up with at least 20 tickets each time
