Feb 28th 2009 8:38AM Bossy, I very much hope you're right. I have many fond memories of AV, back when it was a densely-populated BG. I know it's not everyone's favourite and many people simply go there to farm honour, but some of us miss the tense battles of the pre-Wrath days.
All they need to do is add a desirable reward which requires AV tokens, and the players will come flooding back in.
Feb 28th 2009 8:34AM Kemikalkadet and Helloimbob: Yep, things are curiously biased towards Horde in 50-60 AV, but while it used to be the case that we still put up a half-assed attempt in 60+, these days it just seems like they're all giving up entirely and there literally aren't enough players to compete.
Why they can't just add a Tenacity buff to AV is a mystery to me; that'd solve the imbalance problems easily.
DaPwner: We do -- that's what Blackout is, it's a battlegroup that contains my server (Azjol-Nerub) and several others. The problem being that amongst all the servers in the Blackout group, the Horde just don't seem to want to bother with 60+ AV anymore. :(
Feb 28th 2009 8:07AM The main problem is that on some battlegroups (such as mine -- EU Blackout), the population imbalance simply makes getting many of the achievements (or even winning at all) near-impossible, thanks to vastly fewer players bothering with AV after the marks were no longer needed for gear.
To put it in other words? Try playing AV as a Hordie on EU-Blackout, and almost every game will consist of 15-25 Horde vs. 38-40 Alliance.
