Battlegrounds 6/27/08

The daily battleground today was Alterac Valley. I did it on Wranngar and we won the first one I was in. We rushed FWGY, then backtracked and got TP and IBT while some went forward to get FWRH and the East and West Towers. After we had TP and IBT we went and killed Galv for extra honor. We waited until all the towers had capped along with FWRH then we moved in and killed Drek, a pretty smooth run and having capped everything we got maximum honor. We seemed to be doing ok in AV today so I stayed for 15 more battles, we won 7 more and lost 8 for a total of 8 wins and 8 losses for the day. 50% is not bad for the Alliance in AV in our battlegroup, as a matter of fact it is pretty good. We had a lot of AFK as is to be expected after they released Season 2 for honor. For the most part the strategies that seemed to be working best were rushing FWGY, rushing FWRH and even rushing IBGY and moving on from there. As long as we all worked together we had no problem winning and in one battle the Horde had nothing capped, not even a graveyard, they were rezzing in their cave. We won a few of our battles on reinforcements but for the most part won by killing Drek. The Horde won about half of theirs by killing Vann and the rest on reinforcements. We did have a few turtles, mostly when people went for Galv first which usually causes the offense to get wiped out. Everybody, usually the ones going for Galv at the start, says you only need 5 to take down Galv and that is true but when you look while they are doing it there are no less than 10 in there and usually around 15. There was the usual stupidity of people hanging onto SHGY causing the Horde to rez right in offenses face and keeping them from moving forward. If you can get SHGY AFTER you cap IBGY and FWGY then by all means do so as it will really hold the Horde back from moving forward but you don't hold it from the start, aside from a little resistance to slow the Horde down, because it keeps us from moving forward. All in all I had a good time in there and got a bunch of honor and kills. Axeelina even came in and fought in a couple of them with me. I also ended up with 32 Alterac Valley Mark of Honor most of which I had to delete out of my mail as I am back up to 100 after buying my Merciless Gladiator's Maul the other day.
