    I've got to go with Arathi Basin.

    If AV was not neutered all those years ago I'd probably have picked it.

    AV. Had some really epic ones in there. Love it. Fond of Isle and Mines, as well.

    I love AV because of how varied the battles can be ...you might have 5 fights in a row that end with one side simply downing the towers and killing the boss . Then 3 more fight that are absolute battles and the horde pins the alliance down at the bridge and wins by reenforcements

    Let's be honest nothing and I mean nothing was more cruel and possibly funnier than mind controlling someone off the middle bridge in EOTS.

    Battle for Gilneas! AV and AB were always my favorites. But AV isn't fun unless you go with 5 friends and cause a long, epic turtle (I know people hate when that happens but we find it insanely fun. I'd rather have an insane resource battle in the middle, 30ish vs 30ish, than see who can zerg the fastest and ever even have to kill another player.) AB is still great, but here is why I prefer BfG.....

    There's only 3 nodes. That forces PvP better than 5. In AB you can get yourself landed on D and never get attacked. Rarely happens that way in Gilneas. No matter what you do, you're (usually) guaranteed some fun.

    Or typhoon. Really anything with a good knock-back. I've death-gripped people who have typhooned me as I fell. One time I hit a warrior with it by accident...and it gripped me back to him, saving my life.

    I can't decide between WSG, AB or AV at a push I would say AV it has the potential for so many different strategies unfortunately most groups don't recognise anything other than zerg the towers then boss. But when you have a group that tries something other than zerging or reacts to the other side's tactics I don't think any other battleground can come close to the fun.

    A good AV beats anything, but unfortunately they're extremely rare. Plus, it's horribly imbalanced in favor of Alliance, and I'm Horde. Too little PvP.
    WSG and TP would be my favorites, as I'm a big CTF fan, but the stupid tie rule makes me so mad that I can't stand playing them sometimes.
    SotA and IoC suck hard. Vehicles don't belong in PvP, and IoC is another in favor of Alliance by design. These BGs are what make me love blacklist.
    ToK and SM, I don't think much of. They're pretty much always a blowout where the more healer heavy team gets an edge and doesn't lose it.
    BfG is a good mode, but unfortunately suffers the same one sided snowball effect as the above due to being too small. Three node doesn't work.
    So that leaves AB and EotS as the only ones without a heavy flaw. I voted EotS, since Alliance often get a ten point advantage at the start of AB.

    AB
    AV pre-blizz-fun-destroyer, but still good enough for 2nd place
    WSG > TP
    ToK
    Mines
    EoS
    Gilneas
    REST (+I hate the siege BG's)

    AB for sure. Also partial to WSG and AV.

    Silvershard Mines is my new favorite. I don't know why but I totally love that battleground, maybe because it's different from most of the others (so is temple, and it's also good, just enjoy mines more). Can't believe SO many votes for AB, I got burnt out on that place forever ago and can no longer stand it xD. Second favorite for me is a tie between Twin Peaks and WSG - probably TP taking the lead because it's newer and fresher even if it's been around for awhile now : )

    perhaps because its atmosphere isn't in the open world, but rather in the mines (which i like for a change)
    I think it is the first bg to be 'fully inside'

    Blizz should just remove SotA. No one likes it.

    Battle for Gilneas and AB, I honestly like AV even the current one, I just like the madness in it.
