I don't know, man. I'm doing more WG now than before. And I still think it's the best "battleground" around.I think Blizzard looked this in the wrong way: WG is popular, other BGs are not. So, instead of trying to pump up the older BGs, they tried to mess with the popular one. To remove people from WG you don't nerf quests, you make the other BGs more attractive (How? Not sure, but surely things like the massive turtling in Warsong Gulch is a problem that Blizzard never tried to fix.)

Never tried to fix turtling? Hmm.. and what about the debuff the FC's get after a certain period of time?On topic: I think they should fix the problem and not trying to work around it by discouraging players to go there :-]. But as a hotfix i think it's allright, buys them some time to come with a real solution.

Well, I think they're going to try to get people back into PvP in the next patch. The new "Crystalsong Forest" battleground. The idea that crystalsong forest is going to be turned into a battleground makes sense, considering they are planing an "EPIC" bg like the AV, and AV(based on Alterac Mountains) has a very similar set up to crystal song. No quest hubs, a horde and alliance base camp, with provisions for war. It's the perfect setup. And the new collesium being put together as the new arena. They have lot's of "new" and "exciting" pvp things planned for us I'm sure.

I agree with this, rather than redesign WG to reward people for being at different locations, OR upping the rewards for other battlegrounds so that WG wasn't a MUST GO TO whenever it was actually up.They simply nerfed the quests. So on Tuesday (by and large the WORST lag day) lag server wide will be just as bad as ever come raid time.

How do yo make older BGs more attractive? Simple as giving us rewards. AV in my BG was damn near broken until 3.1 when they started to offer lvl80 epics for honor only (ie hatefull set pieces, deadly off set pieces).Was nerfing WG a good idea? yes and no. Yes because I get get more out of each daily (10 shards) and can focus more on battling. No because last night I suffered horrible lag again. Note I never suffer lag except for WG and I have a new, powerful PC.
