True, the flag buff is heading in the right direction. However I think it's clear that Blizzard's current philosophy on BGs is that they should all last about 20 minutes, which is why they put the reinforcements system in AV. That's the main reason you don't see use of the PvE bonuses in the game, because the game finishes too early. I've had quite a few teams summon Lok after about 15 minutes, but even so he doesn't really advance for another 5 minutes and the game ends without him doing anything. The assault bonuses are even rarer. AV was originally designed with a different philosophy - to be an immersive experience, lasting hours that you drop in and out of, with a constant drip feed of honor. Until Blizz stop there "everything must fit in the same box" approach, AV is going to remain stifled.
