We had 5 weeks in vanilla. why even bother releasing this if everything you do is to make people angry.
The terrible launch delays, the reduced pre patch and now a nerf.

Most people aren’t angry.

Prepatch is great so far. :sunglasses:

Original TBC launched on the 16th of January 2007. Prepatch went out like December 5th 2006. That’s 42 days. For this iteration of the prepatch we got 13 days.
For people to get a fair go at getting the pvp gear before tbc launches you should consider multiplying current honor by (42/13=3.23). Just an idea.
Also why is everyone a scout and gives only 1-3 honor?

Because the gear will be pointless in 2 weeks and its not even the best gear in the game if you want to be elitist over gear that people does not shower for weeks to obtain then go play classic there is no changes there this is TBC not vanilla.

Does it matter exactly?
It’s literally making BGs even more popular than normal.
You’ll be replacing the items shortly once BC comes out anyway lmao.

Fun detected must destroy !

So you changed difficulty of obtaining PvP gear from “Hard” to “Impossible” ? GG

And TBC is also not required to hand out a full epic lvl 60 leveling gear for free.

Wrong you could farm rank 14 gear in prepatch just like you could before they changed the honor at level 70 as you can see in the videos they are level 70 battlegrounds and also it was not for free.

For a returning player in green/blue gear was impossible to get into premades it was around a 7-8 hour farm just for the weapon this is a 12 day pre patch people have jobs and wanted to have fun.

Does anyone else agree that the x3.23 multiplier is a good idea or am I being completely silly?

the honor how it was before was fine its just times changed and people now premade and win almost every battleground because they have bis gear if you was still playing battlegrounds solo or in bad gear after boosting a character it would have still been a very hard grind to do in 12 days just for 1 character a full r14 set with weapons it was a 20-30 hour grind depending on how many games you won.

Damn after hotfix i need lose 200AB for the cheapest item honor :smiley:

Please take a look at this again, no way its that low of honor you get out of a BG win on lvl 60 in prepatch

You dont even get 480 like the reference on 2008 in tbc lvl 70.

During vanilla, there was no honor decay by consecutive kills during a 24h window. So now the only meaningful honor you would get from a bg was the bonus. So you double nerfed that. I can show you 70s videos that the honor per win is a 4digit number (cant make it from the poor quality). You need to reevaluate the honor gains. In my server bgs are like 10-60mins queue long. Thats over 100h in QUEUE to get 1 item.

Ppl will just stop doing bgs altogether

Check the video for the 4digits honor gains:"

You either need to revert the honor decay from consecutive kills, or buff the bg bonus honor. Getting 300honor per win is a slap in the face

Just absolutely amazing that if you are going for 1h sword which cost 19k honor and 20 AB marks. in 7 wins you get 21 marks and approx 1700 Honor. Just 69 more wins to go, for ONE 1hand #RIP
