How much did you hate Tol Barad?

TB was and continues to be a poorly-designed and incompletely and/or incompetently play-tested gift to the anti-vehicle PvP crowd. It's ugly and not fun.
01/16/2012 05:28 PMPosted by GoggzI too enjoy it, though I couldent care less about the objectives tbh, I just gank people running between bases..
And that's the motivation of the "Blizzard killed WPvP" people. They don't actually want to have a battle, or fight. They want to grief lowbies.
For as fun and interesting and exciting as Wintergrasp was, TB is not.
Only when a guildie asks me to please come suffer with them.
"kerstel, I can't bear to do this alone bud"........"please"
I hardly ever missed a wintersgrap. But TB is to awful to do.
It is bad.
Brings guildies closer to each other though. I mean anyone willing to go into that suckfest with you is your bud right?
TB just seems a little lazy, as do most things in Cata.
As for the actual gameplay of Tol Barad, it's terrible. The base-capture win mechanic is both unexciting and frustrating at the same time, and the predictable circle zerg each game gets old fast. They took the worst elements of AB and BoG and turned it into a battleground. Then they added some annoying vehicles which you can't afford to send people to kill in a 20v15 game and which make every match go on forever.
Wintergrasp, while not being the greatest either, was worlds better then this TB nonsense.
I want "epic" PvP, and the only thing that ever matched that description was world pvp in Hillsbrad pre battlegrounds, and original AV.
TB is a joke and I'd be happy if they deleted it tomorrow.
