You know what I really like about the daily Battleground quest … and bah – no its not the days where you have to PUG grind the BG for an hr to get a win.
It’s how it gets everyone thinking tactics again.
Really Horde used to sleepwalk though this battle ground – take the three main points of Farm, Lumber Mill and BlackSmith. Leave one guy as look out (whichever unlucky sod was closest to the flag and slowest to mount up) and then harry alliance up at stabs until they tapped a horde node and upon which most people would roll back to rescue it.
Up against a premade? Eh go farm honor somewhere.
These days though BG wins matter – alliance are crafty and far more aggressive because winning matters. If horde don’t play the ‘think ahead you fools’ game they will find farm ninja’ed and the game is usually a loss from that point.
Go read Out of Mana’s write up on Farming the Farm in AB (it’s an alliance tactic I’ve been seeing a lot of lately.)
