Is this anything like when you send money to those kids in Africa, but it really goes to buying food for Susan Strothers?

Lol this is hilarious. I'm definitely going to do this, though blizzard should make a huge buff to the amount of honor you get from AV if it's going to last three hours. Or at least a huge buff to how much honor you get per kill.

GO TURTLES!

I love AV turtles.

We had one yesterday where a ton of horde went to Galv. About half the alliance players decided it was a bad idea to throw our lives away so we went back to Belinda.

It turned into the most exciting AV I have experienced in months. Pure turtle on both sides with towers and outposts changing sides then switching back within seconds of their destruction.

It was an nail biting, key board pounding, oh my god we just got Tower Point, I can't tell if I should scream or cheer fight. It was fun as hell.

I was disappointed when the next AV was just the same old regular fight. Such a let down.

I remember playing an AV battle all day, going to bed, then logging on to get back into that same battle.

Time to start posting this macro in /bg chat:


/bg Want to revitalize PvP in AV and have it removed from the random queue? Help us get Blizzard's attention by checking out the Adopt-A-Turtle Campaign on the official WoW Forums!


Just once or twice at the start and end of each game. We need to gather support and we need to gather it now.



Go forth, turtle lovers! Fly, my PvP pretties! Join the call to arms, that Blizzard might hear our cries for a better Alterac Valley experience!

Recently enjoyed (thoroughy) a turtle AV. Great fun.

Strongly advocate this effort. Nice idea, good work Foury.

Gah, complimenting an Ally. I need, like, a bath or someone to throw dirt and shout "Blood and Thunder".

There are many times in Warcraft where an NPC tells you and the other faction to "forget your petty squabbles" to deal with a "bigger threat." This happen so often that what I'm about to say really loses its impact, but right now actually is the time to stop fighting...

...Stop fighting each other now so we can fight each other better later! Yes, the Horde are *evil. Yes, they invaded our homes and still haven't left yet. But that's not important right now.

What's important is that we stand together, united on the battlefield, so that Blizzard can see that we actually want our old AV back. There's no way they haven't seen the many threads in support of this - but that hasn't sparked any public action on their part. We need to do something more to show them that we don't care if they think it's a step backwards! We demand satisfaction, and we, the customers, are NOT satisfied right now.



*NB: I am a product of the Second War. I don't care what you say about this being the "new Horde." I'll always hate them and consider them evil. I long for simpler times when traitors all belonged to the same nation, death knights were ranged casters, and gnomes rode around in freaking submarines.

Did the game end with a proper win or did resources abruptly run out and spoil it?
