Future of wPvP, shoud ED get involved?

Many of you are aware of the changes that our friend Charax has pointed out.

Here is a link to his/her post on the General Discussion forum, and a few others of relevance.

The biggest argument the PvE'rs and forum trolls keep stating is that wPvP only consists of ganking or whoever has more people. Anyone on ED worth their mettle can to you otherwise.

I know ED is pretty unique but there are a few other wPvP havens out there (or so I have been told). Regardless, much of the community does not understand what wPvP means to us and what its about. So I would like to ask for wPvP videos from anyone in the community that has any from Cata to present. My goal would be to organize them in a thread to post on the General Discussion forums to show them what wPvP really is.

That is my initial thoughts on the subject at least. However, I also feel like this would either be A) Pointless: Why should the preferences of a few servers get in the way of PvP balance for everyone else. Or B) Promote an influx of non-RP transfers and solve nothing.

Whats your thoughts? Regardless I think if you value wPvP you need to get involved and cause a ruckus to be heard.

TL;DR: Gimme some ED wPvP videos or tell me why that is a pointless/bad idea.

Edit: My grammr R gewd.

Warsong Battalion have some videos dating back to Cata. Some of us against Kingship and others of us fighting Battlehammer

I would forever love anyone who has the video of the Horde base in Howling Fjord being attacked by the AEC. It was WSB and Project Mayhem against AEC. Was such an epic fight with only a little lag

Oh, and I know there are some Wpvp videos with DwD fighting Ally

You should reach out to the other wpvp servers, like Bleeding Hollow and KJ. Even some previous high wpvp activity servers, like Veco, would have a bunch of vids.

It would be great to show the epicness of wpvp to the uninformed.

I've really only played on ED, and I guess I took WPvP for granted.

Is it true that on normal PvP servers the WPvP is lacking? Even with CRZ?

And the 5.3 changes will essentially favor 520+ Raid Gear vs Tyrannical gear?

Sucks man.

If you guys start going on about how wpvp is more about tactics and the like they'll just turn it back on you and say then all your tactics and kill should overcome any pve gear advantage that may exist. There is no way you're going to get any of these people to agree with your position.

Kil Jaeden and Bleeding Hollow both have several guilds that focus on wpvp which are very active. I'm sure there are a few others here and there but decent sized wpvp has faded away over the years, some blame flying mounts but I'm leaning more towards this is an old game and everyone has been there and moved on to other aspects of the game.

World PVP isn't going to die because of this change. Chill out.

Haha true. A kick in the nuts won't kill you either, but I wouldn't recommend one.

Blizz asked for feedback on this change, if you feel you have a stake in it, might as well have your voice heard.

I dont understand why they would have to tweak the gear at all. I primarily PvE, but I have a full set of PvP for when Im roaming around the world and want to protect myself. It just seems like the smart thing to do. Just a strange decision by Blizz really.

What is the absolute worst thing that's going to happen if this change makes it live?

We barely have 1 single guild who just finished Heroic ToE, and you guys are worry about them raiders ganking you in the far future.

Wanting the best PvP gear to be equivalent to the best PvE gear is being a drama queen?

Go troll emeralddrama, I hear you're right popular there.
