The system was fine, as these Marks were simply traded in for honor.


And rep. Please bring back the WSG and AB Marks.





Please.

You are right. I apologize.
May I suggest that people who use their return trinket are Pacified and Immune for some number of seconds, to ensure that they aren't immediately ganked on porting?

It has been suggested (I think its somewhere in Foury's list of suggestions) that the port spot in the base be put on elevated terrain that can not be climbed and is out of line of sight from attackers below. This would allow both for protection from the offense in the base and for the defense to group up on top of the terrain and coordinate the defensive charge.
Yes, this is already in there. It would function similar to the graveyards in Wintergrasp/Tol Barad:

- Move the Insignia/Tabard teleport location away from the front of each General's stronghold (teleport to a raised area behind the stronghold).

Reason: Enemy players gather in front of your General's stronghold before assaulting him. Attempting to zone in at that location generally results in death before your character model loads.



Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Bring back Old AV.
Blizz, I'm talking to you!
Foury, I love old AV. But what if they do bring it back. Will you play your range dps or your melee, cuz i am sure as hell wont be playing my warrior.
Cant believe someone reported the OP...great post I missed the old AV but love the sound of it and want to experience it. Not getting my hopes up but it would be great imo.
Ugh, I was too busy playing low level twinks while the glory of classic AV was ongoing.

Not knowing what I missed, I enjoyed the "newish" version of AV for awhile... knocked off all the achievements, but then I knew how to play AV well, meaning... how to win the game as fast as possible. And it sucks, because there is almost no PvP.

I now cringe when I see AV pop up on my random. It does need to be adjusted. If you're going to extend the length of AV, then you would have to pull it off of the random BG system or possibly not penalize players if they eventually have to leave.
well done foury, this is vital and I hope & desire Blizzard views it. xx


Oh, they see it. They make sure to remind us every now and again that they do, in fact, read the forums.

They're probably reading this right now.

Why hello there, Blue! Why don't you come out and join us?





See? They're just a little shy. Give them time.

I'll look for you during the protest at Blizzard HQ.








@ Blizz: Kidding. Your HQ is safe from Canadian incursion. For now.

I'll be honest tl;dr

But if this post is what I think it is, you have my support.

Though I'd remove it from the Random Queue. (Or maybe random=current AV, and Old AV=separate Queue?)

I could already imagine the whining of some of the player base if there was only 'Old' AV, due to "Damn I got AV. I won't finish this in time to get my random daily bg reward, looks like I need to take my 15min debuff."

Removing it from random queue is, I think, the first thing on the list of changes we have suggested.

EDIT: And it's a darned long list - can't fit it in one post. The fact that taking it off random is first shows how much we care about honor farmers.

The fact that Blizz is still silent shows how much they care about honor farmers, too.

Please, adopt an honor farmer today!

Oh my god, this thread turns me on. I love it so much. I really hope that a blue will actually read this, or something... I mean, this is amazing.

Not trolling or anything, this guy is.. I can't even disagree with anything.

I wonder if we rate it high, everyone; it may get read? Or something? Props to you man for this crusade you're on. I wish the best of luck to ya... Hope something comes outta this one, haha.

Take care.

Edit: Actually, I can't believe someone reported your initial post. Please have this on file somewhere on your machine - hold onto this brilliance!!!!
