Tol Barad Change

90 Human Warrior
Hasn't been a confirmed hotfix by a blue, but multiple threads and screenshots suggest it went live on EU forums earlier today.
The change being the attacking side only gets 360 honor compared to the 1800 previously awarded.
Not a bad change persay, except now there is no real incentive to lose so servers with unbalanced populations will go back to the "Wintergrasp Style" of only getting it once or twice a week.

Find it funny they hotfix TB but still havent fixed rated bgs.............................
Plus, they closed a thread earlier Lawson made in general where we asked about Rated BGs so they obviously know its a problem but are just choosing to ignore it.

Yep, confirmed by a blue:

As you’re probably aware by now, an update was applied to Tol Barad shortly before the holidays which granted the attacking side 1800 Honor Points for a victory. While the goal with that change was to provide more incentive for the attacking forces to claim victory, it ultimately led to an undermining of the spirit of competition in Tol Barad. We’ve just applied a hotfix which has lowered the attacking faction’s gain to 360 Honor Points for a victory. The defending faction will still earn 180 Honor Points for a victory.

We appreciate all of your feedback regarding this change. We'll continue working to make Tol Barad a fun and engaging PvP environment.

Whats the word on the bridge exploit?
We're working on a fix for this right now.

Looks like the TB Lotto has come to a close... :(

Maybe Blizz will actually balance it now?
