Save Alterac Valley!

I approve. AV was pretty much the only thing I did pre BC.

This isn't a good thing. Trust me on this.

You may be thinking it was a good thing back in the day, but why would one want to waste so much time on a stalemate?


This was prior to BGs being all about getting honor, and back when actually killing enemies was more important for how you gained honor rather than just being able to be there and gain honor for winning or losing. So why would you want to abandon a fun BG from which you could easily gain buckets and buckets of honor?

1. Remove or drastically increase the reinforcement cap (2000+).
2. Remove Alterac Valley from the random battleground queue.
3. Return most of the NPC's to Alterac Valley, such as Lieutenants and elite bunker guards.
4. Buff NPC's so that they are challenging to defeat, even as gear improves with new patches.
5. Update Alterac Valley with modern improvements such as a tabard teleport for defenders (instead of an awkward, outdated trinket) and more streamlined quest turn-ins.

Old AV's were the most fun I've had in WoW (been playing since Beta). 2nd most fun were the Hillsbrad/TM battles. Both were done away with - very sad. Bring back the old AV with modifications. They just felt very epic compared to the sad state of AV today.

Would love to see AV return to its former glory.

However, I think very few want to see 2 day long matches, no matter how epic they might have been.

I think tweaking it so an AV were 45min-1hour would be about right.

Increasing the amount of resources, reducing the amount of quest turn ins for support troops, and restoring elite tower Lieutenants would be awesome.

While two-day matches are certainly quite long, I think 45 minutes is too short. The idea here is that players queueing for AV are planning to stick it out for a while, similar to how a raid lasts several hours.

It's been asked before, but I've gotta ask it again - Is Blizzard happy with the number of players who dread seeing AV pop in the random queue? Are they happy with the fact that the majority of players ignore the enemy faction and ride past the Field of Strife in an attempt to make the battle as short as humanly possible?

Foury,

First off excuse my horrid grammar and lack of thoughtful positioning of scentences.

Second, I do believe I saw a blue post a while back in the battleground fourm of a Dev asking what people thought of Alterac Valley. All they got back were complaints about how bad and upsetting it was. Over the course of the next few weeks a few blue posts popped up on the subject of Alterac Valley saying that the main and only reason why they don't want to re-do AV is do to the fact that they believe that the resources could be better spent on other stuff rather than something older. In which case that left the question of, "Well what would those resources be spent on?" I don't recall the exact answer to the question but I do know that it was not of my liking.

I've been reading alot of your posts of late and the one thing that peevs me most (at Blizzard not you) is the pet battles. Everyone's been saying it and I will say it myself. It's god forsaken Pokemon. Just think that this silly game thats being implemented can be played on an ACTUALL POKEMON GAME, that the resources are being put into something that already existst that people can already play and even at that Pokemon has become dumb and tiring over the years for I've played the games tons. It's silly stuff like that that are using up resources that aren't even releated to Warcraft that tick me off, they could be going into thing's that you've been suggesting, not pet battles.

I do sincecerly hope that your letters work in one shape or form and I wish you the best of luck with whatever plans you have. :)

because its fun and epic? did you even play the old av? rushing all over the place to try and complete the quests for areal support and improved infantry and tons of other stuff all the while trying to prevent the opposing faction from completing theirs. and trying to summon the forest/icelord to insta kill everything in its path...ohhh ya good times.

In Old AV you had a choice between any of these:

- Collect armor scraps to buff NPC defenders
- Collect blood/crystals to summon Lokholar/Ivus
- Rescue Wing Commanders and collect flesh/medals to summon air strikes
- Capture mines and turn in supplies for an infantry assault
- Tame rams and kill wolves to outfit a cavalry charge
- Assault enemy towers/bunkers and graveyards
- Defend your own towers/bunkers and graveyards
- Rescue a goblin and build a shredder to attack your foes

Currently, the options are:

- Follow the zerg to the enemy General
- Stand in an enemy tower "just in case" they try to recap it
- Get slaughtered trying to stop the enemy zerg
- Start working on the turn-in quests, only to have your efforts cut short by an incoming zerg or even the reinforcement timer
