I have spent several hours in this zone with every different beta build and it has HUGE key flaws. If one side outnumbers the other side its a hopeless fight that will end with one faction being farmed at there graveyard. Yeah you can sit on the GY and be immune but when its surrounded you cannot get off it without dying because there is no flying mounts. This is not fun!In even up battle the defenders have such an amazingly huge advantage. I have gone entire games watching the seige engines get destroyed on there way to the door without ever doing a point of damage to it.I also love being rezzed at a GY you don't control and having a 3-5 minute run to your corpse to get back into the fight. Why can't we rez at a GY we control so we can mount up and get right back to the fight.Plus the fact that the battles last for 30-40 minutes with a 2+hour downtime is just retarded. I understand the winners get access to the raid instance but if you win it then it takes you 2+ hours to get a raid together to go in there your a retard. If a guild wants to raid that instance then they should get there raid together, go to wintergrasp and try to win it. If you win you get to go in if you don't then to bad. Have a 30 minute reset for the next people to try. Then that same raid can sit there and defend. No big deal..... As of right now I can agree that it is an extremely good idea but the way it is implemented it is just retarded.My server has alliance outnumbering horde 4-1. I (as an alliance player) do not look forward to Lake wintergrasp at all right now.

i am very concerned with horde or alliance dominating this do to just shitty servers(in terms of alliance to horde ratio). My server is about 2.5 to 1 horde, on a good day so im pretty sure horde will be owning lake wintergrasp(horde could dominate leveling areas, but im hoping people are more interested in leveling). blizzard really needs to add incentives for people to roll on the lower populated sides. it took WAR 3 weeks to do this... I do not want to pay $25 dollars to switch servers and and i dont want to leave my guild. might be easier just to play with them in WAR unless bliz can pull their heads outta their asses
2.5 to 1, horde has more*

It's 5:1 on my server in the Alliance's favor. I play Horde, so playing in Lake Wintergrasp will likely require a $25 server transfer first.
