It also gave your captian/leader guy an extra warmaster. And it was usually a requirement to take them all out before the final fight.
If I remember right, if you took all of the enemy towers down and defended all of yours, there would be 8 total.. Correct me if im wrong. been a long time since it was that way obviously.
They could be single pulled back then.

WTS pen, cheap.
Edit: Instead of purely being a smartass, I'll add something constructive.
Always have and still do support Foury in his charge. I'm for the model that would make (separate queue) AV 2-3 hours-ish. Something that feels akin to raiding in terms of duration and challenge. PvE gets their quick heroics and their longer more epic feeling raids. PvP gets our quick BGs and... quick non-PvP BGs... Even the world BGs, that are basically scheduled instead of queue when you want, don't last more than 20-30 mins at best.
Do all PvE players want to raid?
Not necessarily, but it's a longer and more challenging version of that playstyle, there if they chose to do it.
Do all PvP players want a 3 hour battle?
Not necessarily, but we have no choice. That, to me, is the key problem. While I will never try to say someone's opinion shouldn't count, I don't think the people against this have a real argument. That's the thing with choices, you get one too, and you can chose not to queue. What about me?

It wouldn't take much to make AV epic again.
And it doesn't have to last 17 hours and junk either. 1-2 hours is fine, plenty of time to summon riders, Calvary charge, etc.
Oh, and make a separate queue. Caverns of Time: Alterac Valley Battleground
And if put in random, no penalty if you leave before the game starts.
why would someone report this? Necro, sure, but this is a very well written thread and deserves to be addressed- I know..it won't, and that's fine.
It's really only a necro if it's not a valid thread anymore, such as something about a bug back in 4.1 that has already been fixed.
