First of all, you cant get a scoreboard with this bug.

Also, you dont count as a "player" in the bg, meaning if you enter wsg, the battleground will invite 10 other players, not just 9.

Ah yes, and spirit healer wouldn't res me.

You dont count as a player? I see upcoming 100-man AV's.

The big question........... do you get honour?

From kills prolly yes. Well, im not the one who is going to check if you get bonus honor ;P
I guess you could ask on forums I have given link to.

You do get bonus honor yes.

It's useful for if you cannot be bothered with horde pre's in AV, though you can't actually tell if the opposing team is a premade or not until somebody says something in /bg, or if you ask.

I generally just log out for five minutes if I wish to leave a premade AV.

That works too.

It works and you also get full honor from the match also you dont count as a player (in terms of population cap, everything else works fine), which means the bg will 'invite' a full amount of ppl + you (and whoever else uses that trick).

Must admit tho cant really see much point to it tho, I like the laziness of not having to use the mouse to enter a BG tho (guess there is a 'proper' macro for that tho)

There's an addon for it that automatically accepts pop ups (battleground invites, group invites and whatnot).

Would this "extra man" also account for why I saw an Alliance shammy in AV last weekend without being pvp flagged?

I couldn't attack it and it appeared that it couldn't attack either..but was certainly there running about amongst us.

Of course a screenie would have been awsome about now but, yea...I fail.

I dont think so atleast when I tested that macro on my alt I got pvp tagged right when I joined, could ofcos be that it works differently in AV so not totally sure.
