I don't know how much Zarhym should be smirking. If you removed VOA how many people would be playing it? The test at how good of job you did at making a game or zone in this case would be how many people would do it for fun and not just the rewards.I like wintergrasp but it is far from perfect. We usually get about one full raid group and a few stragelers. My server is pretty low pop though. On our server it would be much better if it was a little smaller.

This. I know my guild will bring 20-30 ppl over to WG just to win so we can run vault. I wouldn't touch the place otherwise, and I bet many raiders are the same. It's good that it has incentives so ppl use it, but the flooding of ppl is not necessarily due to it being awesome (although I do think it's fun).

If that were true, WG would only be populated 1 day a week.I do WG simply because of the dailys, from which I geta) about 40gb)4k bonus honorEven before 3.1 went live and I was honor capped, I still did WG every day for the free gold, and also because it can be fun to hold off a zerg of people with a cannon/demolisher.

Personally I do it just because it's fun, more fun then even SotA. I've only done VoA once, I don't consider it worth my effort. The odds of a gear piece dropping that I can even roll on are slim, and there are better ways to get badges. The dailies are nice, but I'd still do it if dailies weren't there (infact I do, since I'm often in there multiple times a day).Wintergrasp is the only place in the game where you get that feeling of being in a big army of individuals working towards a common goal. The only other game aspect that still approaches that same quantity of people is AV, which fails because people usually break up into little groups to hit different targets. On my realm we usually have at least two raids formed in WG, one last night had 4, all of them usually fighting in only two or three places.Yes, having that many people in one place is lagtastic as all hell, but it's wicked fun!

You should look at warhammer online you might like it a lot. I would still be playing it if my friends hadn't gone back to wow. The whole world is wintergrasp.
