It seems like a great idea!
My ideas are probably already posted in the other thread, but i guess it cant hurt to post them so..
After each battle there should be a 10 minute period before the next battle can start. During this time (and any time a battle isn't ongoing) there should be a sanctuary outside of the city (for the faction that doesn't hold gilneas) and one inside for the faction that does. In the outside sanctuary there should be an npc that can be talked to in order to begin the battle, and after it is started, a 5 minute warning will broadcasted to all players on the attacking faction.
The defending team will not get this warning, instead they would have to rely on players in the zone to warn them, or a message that would broadcast only after the attackers had begun attacking the city.
I think it would also be nice to see some good strategic elements included in this, like ambush locations that have a chance to spawn guards (based on the numbers on each team) with these locations being optional but providing shortcuts , the ability to call for NPC reinforcements (again, based on numbers) and also a gradual weakening of defenders after each battle. Something like a 4% decrease to run speed, and 5% decrease to damage and health. This could stack up to 5 times.
Again, great idea. I sincerely hope they implement this at some point. If not during cata, in the next xpac

OP you should relink to the original thread in the original post so people can view the old topic easily:
Yea i had started this one in a hurry so i forgot a couple things lol. It is added now.
But I wanted to add something, remember in old AV you woot loot bodies for supplies to actually bring in a giant summor/reinforcements? Why not have something like that set into this?
1) Like you could loot [useful item] or [useful beam of wood] or hey! maybe even a [useful bag of stone] from slain enemies and after everyone has turned enough in to a zone leader the bridges or buildings (see below) in the zone become reinforced or blockaded.
2) How about destructable buildings in each zone, you could attack them with the seiges or airships? (again see below :) ) If a building is destroyed or damaged you can use the [useful bag of stone/useful beam of wood] and return them to a alliance stonemason/Horde war carpenter to have the buildings repaired. And for each building destroyed, the morale of NPC enemies in the district of the destroyed building decreases, basically meaning they're HP decreases and they damage they do is nerfed just a bit but still enough to be able to kill, but the morale/stats system would not affect players or the district boss.
3) Why not have an airship or two from each faction flying around the city, like 1 from each faction is circling the city well the other 2 are circling the outskirts? Players would be able to become a crew member for either of their factions airships.
inner city crews' job: To shoot down the enemy airship patrolling the city, raining supprision fire on enemy foot soliders, or destroying the buildings of a gilnean district.
outskirts crews' job: To shoot down the enemy airship patrolling the outskirts, and flanking incoming enemy siege machines.
Each time Gilneas switchings controlling hands all buildings and morale and damage is reset.
Edit: Sorry for any spelling mistakes, I'm doing this on my droid pro lol.

The battle for Gilneas (Lore wise) is over. The Forsaken have already won by Crowley's surrender for exchange for his daughter. Just saying.
If that's the case, then awesome, may strife ensue.
can you add mine to the list or are they not good?
