Tol Barad Honor Change
I think you guys needs to check what realms are more population of each faction and fixed them, like randoms attackers or defense. or getting extra buff like wintergrasp. but seriosly this is not more incentive to play told barad.
so now the exploiters have all their gear, but the rest of us do not. sweet.
However, something really needs to be done about the way TB Works. The mechanics of the place, while not impossible, Place FAR too much pressure on the Offensive Team. Don't get me wrong, TB is awesomely designed: A simple concept that takes a complex strategy to achieve Victory On the Offense. But the Defense isn't nearly as challenging. In Fact, I'll go so far as to say a Defensive group made of people who've never PvP'd before has a better chance of winning that a group of PvP veterans as long as ONE person in that Defensive group knows how to play Ring around the Rosie with the bases.
While offense have to split their attention between Destroying Towers for Extra Time, Capturing Bases, and Defending Captured Territory, Defense simply has to zerg a previously Captured base, then turtle it, then (When the Offense Finally pulls 2/3 of it's group into the Turtled Base) Respawn, Rinse and repeat. The Mechanics of this battleground almost seem to ENCOURAGE them to do this as well: since it's impossible to defeat a Clump of Enemy Players without an Equal Sized or slightly less populated clump of players, the "Base Capture" Squad of our teams always have to consist of the majority of the raid group, leaving our captured Territory to be recaptured by the horde (who will then stream out of their Central Graveyard directly into the next base, and the cycle continues.)
My Suggestion to fix it? Add another way for the Offense to win. Make it so that - in addition to the attacking team being able to capture all 3 bases and win instantly - if the Round Ends with All Three Spires (those Extra-Time Towers that we destroy with the siege machines) Destroyed and the Attacking team controlling 2 out of the 3 bases, the Attacking team wins. This adds an extra challenge to Defense (since they'll have to set aside a few people to actively hunt down Siege Vehicles before they destroy towers) and makes it Easier for the offense.
I know Blizz cares about how their Content is working, they've proven that in the hotfixes they've done so far. I think if we could get some good Suggestions going, perhaps we could get something changed for the better.

Incorrect. You May be, and your friends might be as well, but alot of us got left out simply because the BG was full and ended up not getting much of any Honor for it.
