The few times I've attempted to go in, a winner was usually announced within a few minutes of the event starting. Meaning that usually when I got there, the event was either already over, or over before I really got a chance to participate. The event itself isn't really that interesting in my opinion, either. The height of excitement is when you have people flagged and landing near a node you're also going after. But even then, there are bigger and better ways of instigating World PvP.It also doesn't help that on one of my old realms, both of the victories were monopolized by the same two people nearly every week. I'm not even really sure how they did it--the events are supposed to have a level of RNG to it, but apparently that doesn't matter. A lot of world events can be like this--rare spawns, world bosses, and so on. I don't really tend to enjoy them as a result. They feel less like an actual competition and more like a fixed ring match or lottery.

That sucks. They should make it so you can only win it once per toon. On my server, it usually goes anywhere from 6-10 min. Usually 7 min, in, there is a winner.

I haven't given this a shot since wrath but if I recall correctly it, some times, took somewhere between 2 to 3 minutes for it to be over.That just left me with a feeling that... I just never had a chance to begin with so never bothered again.

Yeah, it's like that. It can sometime take a little longer now because people aren't in Northrend much any more. But back in the day, I think the statistic was that the Tourney was usually done within 8 minutes.

I absolutely quit trying once I found out the same people could win it multiple times. One day i noticed two people already wearing the Salty fishing the same spots as me during the tournament. I whispered them asking them why. They both said they were trying to get the ring. I immediately thought of the hundreds of people those two (and others like them) were potentially screwing out of their Salty titles and promptly banked my fishing pole. It's already hard enough to win. Finding out i was also competing against people who had already won was just too much. What was Blizz thinking when they added that stupid ring as a reward? That's no place for an heirloom if you ask me.
