i was going to say the same thing. i have been talking to my guildies and being a wrath baby who likes a challenge i never got to see the old av and was told even tho it lasted a very long time it was still extreamly fun. the other day i got to see a very small portion of what old av was.
we where fighting the alliance along hill side just befor you get to the bridge then something stranged happened about 15 moonfires go off at once... then again and again. i was confused then i see a npc druid walking through the middle of the horde moonfireing like crazy.
it definally gave the alliance a quick edge where they decimated our numbers fast and pushed us basicly all the way back to the bunker. i would love to see this more but sadly it only happened because it was a surpriseingly long battle and was just about to finish.
from my guildy who was a alliance player back in the day he loved the days when you could summon something ( sorry i forgot what) in the feild of strife and watch it kill horde as they try and run past it.
also i love the ammount of work you have put into this. you are clearly a modern day poet of supirior intelect. this will surely get the mighty gms attention
There are actually a number of things you can summon.
After turning in enough mine supplies, you can have infantry assault the Field of Strife, and with appropriate reputation you can obtain orders to have them strike the enemy base.
After rescuing Wing Commanders and turning in enough flesh/medals, you can have them launch an aerial assault on the Field of Strife or on the enemy base.
After taming enough mounts (rams for Alliance, frostwolves for Horde) and obtaining enough saddles (wolf hides for Alliance, ram hides for Horde), you can initiate a cavalry assault on the Field of Strife and eventually the enemy base.
And, of course, with enough blood/crystals you can have your druids march to the Field of Strife in an attempt to summon Ivus or Lokholar, who will wander around the Field for about 10 minutes, then proceed to obliterate the enemy base.
All of the above are still in AV, though there is almost zero chance of successfully using them with the reinforcement system. There was also, I believe, a goblin (who was removed) who you could rescue. He would then help you build a shredder.
Fight alongside an elite battalion,
Turn in those Frostwolf Soldiers' Medallions!
Bring back the glory days of AV,
Or I'll keep writing awful poetry!
Come, friends, join our cause!
Bring more to the rally,
To save epic fun,
With Old Alterac Valley!
We can't let this die,
It is far too important!
If more people see this
Our crusade will be shortened!
So speak up in /trade chat,
Show Blizzard we want this.
We're depending on you.
I leave for a few hours and here I find our thread languishing on page 8 of the forums?
This simply won't do. How can we expect to show Blizzard how much we want AV fixed if they can't even see our discussion? Keep posting, please, even if only to /sign.
Ask guildies who you know would enjoy Classic AV to come take a look at it and /sign as well.
Another quick turn-in, just one quest more!
I'll call in the cavalry, that'll even the score!
I need only return one more ram to the stable,
Wait! Zero reinforcements? I wasn't even able
To complete the simplest of escort quests.
Well, I'm sure that it's all for the best.
It's too bad they wasted all that time and space
On an escort quest in the midst of a race
If only there were an army of, say,
Elite NPC's to save the day
With great pain they'd make all our enemies /roar!
But there's only the race.
Keep bumping this, Foury put a lot of effort into writing such a great post. Do not let this go in vain. I want the war put back into Warcraft, the killing put back into PvP. Most of my good wow experiences were in AV, when it was epic. We can bring back those epic experiences.
Blizzard bring back old content that we all want, stop rehashing old raids, bring back what alterac valley used to be like!
I remember getting to play AV in the level 60 bracket in BC before changes came. While people didn't make it the end goal, there was still things like the elemental lord being summoned, and upgrades to NPC Gear. I never saw an aerial assault, infantry assault, or cavalry charge though D=
My bet says he is a troll.

Though I'm sure you believe yourself charming or droll,
I'm here celebrating my very first troll.
If you've got more specific feedback in mind,
Please share it; We'll get back to you in due time.
YES! This guy is a genius and Blizz should listen. I miss old AV so much... it is kinda lame now in comparison. I love it when I queue random BGs and get AV but then it ends so quickly and I go aww. :( Please read this, Blizzard.
