I find it really hard to believe that they didn't assume an 1800 point victory would encourage win trading.

Did they fix the tons of issues of actually winning an attack on Tol that first lead to the win trading to start in this hotfix as well?lol Didn't think so...

You can't hotfix a change to Tol Barad. A Hotfix is something that only affects the server side. Spawn rates, currency awards, etc. I'm sure a real fix to Tol Barad is coming. The 1800 honor fix was akin to saying "There's a hole in this screen door. That can allow flys in. We have to fix it, but since they can come in the tiny hole anyway, we might as well knock out a wall."

I agree. I usually assume that Blizzard has some reasonably clever people working there, so I don't understand how they couldn't see that the wildly lopsided rewards would produce win-trading. Game theory 101.

@potatoboyActually a "hotfix" means a fix applied while the servers are still up.It doesn't mean "a fix applied so quickly that it has become hot from atmospheric friction" like so many people appear to (ab)use the word.I think Blizzard did know it would produce win trading, what they didn't expect was the hundreds of people not even in the battle getting free honor. You could get most of a PVP set in a single day using the bridge glitch.
