Lol Barad (I bet that hasn't been done before)..... it's dog-shit.. don't bother with it in its current state. It'd be great to see some of the changed suggested. Like making it fun, balanced and fair.

I just had the 'pleasure' of visiting Fail Barad for the first time. The criticisms in this article are dead on. (I've been talking to most of the Horde WG veterans and majority hate the white 'failephant' that is TB).This is coming from someone that has read and understood Sun Tzu's Art of War and Machiavelli's Prince.I've played easily 300+ WinterGrasps on various toons and given that Ghostlands US owns it 71.0% that makes 213+ wins.Lol Barad in comparison is a crock of horseshit.Heck simplest modification that Blizzard could make is 2 buildings need to be controlled. Requiring the capture of all 3 with the defender's GY in the middle is utterly ridiculous.In the mean time, servers will need to have teams ready to win just after server reset so that their side can keep the zone owned for a week, even tenacity + the balancing mechanics of WinterGrasp meant that Alliance on Ghostlands managed to capture WG about 1 out of 8.5 battles (or just under once a day). Here all the defending side has to do is zerg between 2 nodes - it is mathematically unlikely that attackers have a chance to win, and if you figure in afker-honor leeches, and the confusion caused by noobs who haven't read up on the battle... yeah whomever thought this 'balancing' act up is an idiot.
