THE GOOD OLD DAYS
Looking forward to participating in these marathons of bloodshed when Classic WoW launches.
Couple important parts to note. There used to be a ton of extra elite and non-elite NPCs that made just traversing the battleground obnoxious and impossible. Field of Strife had a mass amount of elite NPCs from Horde and Alliance battling each other, and the roads to Horde and Ally camps were guarded by non-elite and elite named NPCs like Lieutenant Murp. The towers hit like a truck too, and it would generally only take 6 hits or so to kill low armor/hp classes. All of this pretty much made zerging or going in small groups impossible since you'd usually get dazed and killed by NPCs. Alterac Valley was also a 51-60 BG, but was balanced for Level 60 (most of the NPCs were above 60). You could find yourself with a ton of Level 51s in your group, which really didn't contribute much since most of their attacks were missed/resisted, and their damage was so even if it hit.
Never again had I so much fun in a BG. Old Alterac Valley was the best and I wish they'd bring it back as a Brawl. Some of my best and most vivid PvP memories I associate with these battles, the longest I remember lasting for three days on my realm. I joined four times during that time :D
Oh wow yeah, I remember this. It was amazing. Watch Battlestar Galactica, start drinking during, then fire up WoW afterward and do crazy mess in AV. No better Friday night was ever had.
That Drek vs Van artwork is sick.
I am somewhat positive, that the Battlefronts in BfA will be a bit similar to AV. And I am looking forward, I really like the idea of upgrading out support and so on.
My all-time favorite bg. Had so much fun and so many great memories "way back" when I was earning my PVP title. I just squeezed into Knight-Captain before they removed the bg titles. :)I hope Blizz makes an Alterac Valley PVP Brawl :)
