Zach:You get the Docks. You get the glaives. You park them out of range of the Cannons and take down the side gates, which as somebody pointed out, have 75% of the health of the front gates. The Glaive Throwers can reach from out of cannon range.You defend the docks. You have a few defend your keep. The hangar, and all the other BS in this BG may as well not be there.This BG, I might add, is awful. It's not quite as bad as SotA, but it's pretty low on the terribad list.Really, AV needs a major make-over to encourage fighting in the field of strife and maybe an opt out with your honor each death following being in AV for 15 minutes. Enough with the Zergs and Turtles.For simple BG pleasure, EotS remains the best BG in how simple and elegant it is and how nice the sight lines are.WSG and AB, the progenitors of EotS, are more basic, but just as elegant.Wintergrasp, would be cool, except that there's currently no server technology that can evidently support what the reality of WG is.......You can do a great job defending until there's a minute left on the clock, but since the apparent logic is to devote resources to the Vehicles and prevent them from lagging, you run around unable to act while the last 30 minutes of your life get flushed down to the toilet due to lag immobilizing you. Otherwise, WG is very well layed out. It should have been instanced, though.

I agree about Eye of the Storm. Best battleground for people looking for lots of combat and almost no down time. EoTS and AB could use an honor/xp buff though. Let's be honest, AV is popular because it is the most reliable honor/xp farm in pvp. You rarely finish an AV without at least capping two towers and killing the captain, even if you lose.
