A warlocks paradise, shame we cant see the opposing faction on the map or we could go SoC them up!

Hmm, the horde usually do better than that when I'm there on an alliance char. They still lose more often than not, but they at least capture SP and trash most of Dun Baldar.

AV finnaly has back old style. And finnaly more pvp which means unfortunetly alliance will be the defeated one in most cases :P

Was in around 20 AV last AV weekend, won 2 of those..

Been in 4 today, won all 4 in 40 mins or below..

Got a sick amount of honor in each, i like the new AV ;)

I didnt even know that horde could actually do something that remotely counts as team work in AV..

Would seem theyre getting bummed in Cyclone too. I'm winning all my AVs. They seem to consitently take 20-30 mins now though.

No no horde are pvping. 75% of the Alliance (kiddies) is moaning about how the new AV sucks...

Well, I've played it 3 times on alliance since the patch landed. First one alliance won; we defended our bunkers and Belinda, and destroyed 3 of the horde towers before running them out of reinforcements.

The other two times horde won, because in the first game almost nobody defended and just died endlessly against Galv with a minimal horde defense force, and in the second nobody attacked -- Belinda was killed early on, and the horde got just enough from that to win.

So I'd say it's a lot better, and needs some coordination to win. Three things left to make it even better, imo -- move the horde starting position further back so the two sides meet in the middle, not next to Belinda; buff Belinda so she's not a complete pushover; and lastly improve the layout of the horde base so the NPCs can't be bypassed(or make it easier for horde to enter DB, either way).

Galvangar has 290,000 health.
Galvangar has mortal strike and intimidating shout which works on the tank and has no cap on number of targets it can effect.

Balinda has 230,000 health and 1/3 the armour of Galvangar.
Balinda has spells that are interruptable. AoE slow which is dispellable. Sheep which never affects the tank, and is dispellable last time I checked. Assuming she doesn't immediately break it with her arcane explosion.

Captain's are game critical.

Doesn't take a genius to work this shit out.

Whilst I'm not saying alliance don't generally God damn suck at the new AV, and I certainly don't miss the crap 'omg zerg' mode of the old, it's hardly even.

I don't like the reinforcements thing, don't even need to kill drek anymore which seems to make the point of getting to the enemy base fairly irrelevant.

There's much more pvp going on in there, which is a "good thing" (tm). But... it just seems like a big AB atm to me >.<

Played a couple of games this weekend as Horde, there's certainly a lot more PvP going on inside now and *gasp* even strategy is important now for the first time since the original AV.

Lost all the games I pugged in AV though :P

AV has never been fair, really. The map layout in the zerg mode of it was daft from a horde point of view, just as this is stupid from an alliance point of view.

What I like most about the new AV is that it has been more balanced between who win. Also, I think the reinforcement thing has made AV much more about pvp and killing people, than just rushing down and killing Drek or Vann. :D
