Here is a battle plan someone was posting in AV using a Macro. I copied the text and created a Macro from it for my own use because it was working so well. Of course it only works if everyone follows it. Unfortunately the Alliance has a real problem following even the simplest plans for some reason, at least in my battle group they do, but if most people do it will work. The way I have it, due to size, it is a 2 part Macro but the second part is optional.
This is the first (Main) Macro, I named this one AV-1:
/bg 1. GRP 1-3 GO TO RH, NO STOPPING FOR ANYTHING!
/bg 2. GRP 4 CAP FrostWolf GraveYard and Defend!
/bg 3. GRP 5-6 Cap Tower Point
/bg 4. GRP 7-8 Cap IceBlood Tower and kill Galv if possible for extra honor!
Here is the second (Optional) Macro, I named this one AV-2:
/bg DO NOT DEF Stonehearth GY ...so they CAN NOT rez at RH
/bg Report AFK
If you are going to use both they are meant to be hit one after the other. If you don't know how to put this into a Macro it is easy following the steps below.
1. Type /macro in chat to open the Macro program.
2. Click on "New"
3. Select a icon for and name your Macro
4. Save it
5. Paste the above AV-1 text into the Macro (Everything starting with /bg)
6, Repeat for AV-2
7. It is automatically saved so just drag the icon into your tool bar.

Today was another bad day for the Alliance in all the battlegrounds except, surprisingly, AV. I fought in battles in all battlegrounds on Wranngar. Eye of the Storm was my daily and I won the first one I was in, then went back for 4 losses. I don't know what the Alliances problem was today in a battleground we usually do very well in but we just couldn't get it together it seems. I only fought in 2 WSG battles, both losses but I did get to capture the flag a couple times. I only fought in one AB and it was so bad I decided not to go back. It wasn't a 5 cap on the Horde's part but it was one of the worst I have been in without the Horde 5 capping us. There was no teamwork, everyone was running around doing their own thing, no one was working together towards one goal. AV on the other hand we didn't do too bad in especially considering it was still their holiday weekend. I was in 9 battles, 4 wins and 5 losses. The strat that still seems to be working well is rushing FWGY and then moving back and forward and getting the towers from there. Of course, like any plan, that only works if everyone follows it and the Alliance seems to have a problem following even the simplest plan. Of course we were plagued by AFK in every battle I was in. My TuringTest AFK Reporter is working well and it would be great if at least 5 people in every battle had it installed as it takes 5 people to report someone before they are marked AFK. I think if 5 people in every battle had it, AFK would be a thing of the past. I advertise it once in every battle and hopefully people will catch on.
