OT: Was to be expected I guess? It's like the holiday events that have PvP achievements, except this time it's Christmas all year!
I couldn't imagine how anyone could go into a BG as a fresh 90. Full-geared, I'm sitting at over 600k hp with my stam buff. I can actually ignore a fresh 90 rogue with 400k hp sitting on my face because of how little damage his ilvl 483 daggers are doing. Even before the Bloody Coin change, I feel like more geared Horde players enter random BGs than geared Alliance players and I really haven't noticed any difference, personally.
Do I agree with the change? Meh, seems cop-outish to what bloody coin farming was on Timeless, but I haven't seen a direct effect to it yet.
And 100% JP farm if you can find yourself carried by a geared group. It's infinitely faster than potential 20 min BGs for what could be as little as 200 honor, even if you're random queuing as Alliance. You can get through some dungeons in 5-7 minutes with a good group.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.-George Bernard Shaw
I am not saying that honor is impossible. I am saying the means to acquire it are awful if you primarily enjoy pvp.
(Which they are addressing in Draenor so this conversation is kind of silly)
Was just stating my opinion on the matter, that is all.
I like people to be informed of their choices to gear up in a timely manner.
I will be glad when the new xpac comes out and a lot of this stuff will be addressed.
There is no point to play bg atm with everyone farming coins. Even your team dont give a s... about other teammates since if they die they get 10 min CD. Bg after bg after bg ...
I think it'll die off in a few months, but yeah, seeing lots of oaths in BGs now
Just ask someone to drag you through arenas to cap. 2v2 can be soloed on low rating. That honor gear is just a waste of time.
I'd advise you to not forget doing TB. About 500 honor per game and mostly bad geared people. Don't forget your team also has those 550 farmers. TBH I am one of those but I didn't really notice any difference in playstyle. But yeah I always premade 5 people so my win % is about 80%

i`m 550 full pvp warr and don`t give a f about no bloody coins. what i like to do however is go into bgs and farm ppl farming bloody coins
So many in full 550 PVP gear players farming coins that even 522 PVP is not going to help you much. That buff itself with so many having it up is causing quite a bit of FPS lag I know my FPS goes in to the toilet when ever I am near a large group of them and I never had that problem prior.
Brightside more people are PVPing now.
Edit; One more thing the Bloody coins in BGs has brought about and that is the art of KB stealing and the KB stealers coming out of the woodworks to practice it.

The only thing which annoys me is how fucking ugly people with the coin look. Oh god, its hideous. Die die die
censor and oath give x2 bloody coin in timeless that requires killing blows is alot faster if u group up a healer with u. IMO fastest way :3
I do feel bad for new players that are trying to collect some honor on their fresh 90's.
That said, I am stomping players non-stop in BG's right now for Bloody Coins
