You know, after 2 years of having WG for one day a week because Alliance ridiculously outnumbered Horde on Proudmoore, I'm going to say that Tol Barad has given us equal opportunity to gain access to a raid boss and extra dailies.I'm finding that the only ones crying about this issue are the ones who were accustomed to fighting in and maintining control of Wintergrasp.Now all of a sudden the otherside is gaining control of it, disrupting the natural order of your respective server life, and that somehow makes the game mechanics fail.I'm sorry, but from all of us who were respectively screwed for two years: eff. you.I'll agree that TB heavily favors the defense, but just as well, shouldn't it? I mean, you wouldn't expect to just waltz up into another country's/faction's territory and ROFLPWN them into submission without some sort of challenge, right? And that was the problem with Wintergrasp on heavily unbalanced servers. For Proudmoore, Alliance won simply by outnumbering. That's not strategy or beauty in design.I'd say right about now with the current mechanics, control of TB goes back and forth on Proudmoore with Alliance having it for a few days, then Horde. And I really think that's how it should be. No side should have it 95% of the time, which was the case for Wintergrasp on this server.And for servers (like Dark Iron where alts of mine resided), Wintergrasp was shared equally, nothing has changed. Yes attacking is hard, but once you've successfully gained control, you can rest assured knowing that defending it will be a little easier and that you won't lose it after just two hours.
