Personally I feel it's a bit too easy to win, and conversely a bit too hard to defend. Once your fortress wall has been breached you're pretty much toast as a defending team. Cannons are also quite easily destroyed, and the whole game is typically over rather quickly. I'd love to have longer, more advanced battles where defenders can afford to sally forth into the field more, but the fragile walls just won't allow for that.Also, horde has an inherent advantage when attacking as well as defending, due to the way the graveyards are set up. Alliance players spawn inside the keep and come down the ramp towards the east, while horde reinforcements come riding from the west. When horde defends, ally reinforcements arrive from the east, meeting hordes coming down from the keep graveyard. This should be fixed, so that there are two ramps leading in either direction from the graveyard.

It's a joke on my server. It turns over literally every time.

Unfortunately the map favors the Attacker. So, on my server, it usually changes hands every battle as the "attacker" almost always wins.The map design wasn't well thought out, and the fortress itself is lacking the npcs Zach speaks of. Why are there holes in the inner walls? Why can demolishers squeeze thruough them?Sorry Blizz but I played DAoC before WoW came out and THAT game knows how to do open world siege warfare far better.Wintergrasp is a great idea in theory, but needs some serious reworking as it stands now.

Hi Faar, you wrote "Once your fortress wall has been breached you're pretty much toast as a defending team." That's not the case on every realm! Here on Thrall when it's Horde defending, many times the Alliance breaches the walls but then gets stomped flat by our ground troops in the courtyards. Not every time, of course; sometimes it's terribly short as you say. But I've witnessed a good percentage of defenses where we lost the walls and still won the battle. On our server the Horde is lacking in tactics but true to its image, it makes up for that in pure swarming ability.
