Don't kid yourself. WG is Wow's first and only world PVP success, so players and Blizzard are doing (and should do) a happy dance for that.But it's got major flaws. Honestly I don't think lag is the biggest, as this article suggests. By far the biggest is the balance. Before the patch, lag was terrible, but the balance was perfect, with the offense winning about 60 percent of the time. You want the castle to change hands often, but you still want the defense to have some chance of winning. Since the patch, lag is better (but far from perfect), but balance is terrible, with offense winning 80 percent of the time. I don't even show up to defend any more, there's no point.Fixing the balance is easy, and it should be the highest priority.

I agree that Wintergrasp is Blizzard's first successful world pvp in the game! I love WG, I find it a lot of fun as a healer.There is a real problem with the fights being completely imbalanced. I play alliance, and we usually have WG 3/4 of the day. Not because of skill (though some of our regs are hardcore pvpers who get their stuff done!) but just because we outnumber them. I'm not complaining that we win WG, but I would like to have a more even playing field so that winning is something to achieve for. I'm not sure how this could be done. Maybe working on tenacity is the answer. I'm not sure.The lag is what kills me though. During prime time hours, fighting in the keep, my spells will be queued up to five times behind. My target is often dead before the spell is even cast. I just have to try to keep Prayer of Mending bouncing around. This isn't any every prime-time occurrence by any means. Normal prime hours are fine, just a little bumpy. But when it gets laggy, it gets real laggy. IMO, it's either a little laggy or it's so-bad-you-can't-do-anything laggy. There doesn't seem to be an in-between.
