The 5.1 WG/TB patch was really great, and participation seems to have increased greatly.
But there are significantly less players in WG compared to TB;
for example in my realm we usually have 40~60 players on each side in TB, but in WG it rarely goes up 20 and 30 seems to be the maximum.
The current ranking system in WG is too de-incentivising for players to attend- you need to hit corporal to get full honor point, sergeants get really little(can't remember how much) and privates get "zero".
I believe that low ranks are bit too much penalized, and I suggest something like this-
Privates - 50% honor
Sergeants - 100% honor
Corporals - 200% honor
In this way new-coming players will be more eager to attend, and it would compensate for less honor from player kills compared to mass zerg style TB which gives more.
