Anyone who played Original AV wants Korrak, minefields, npc patrols - both mounted and on foot. They want heavily fortified towers/bunkers - requiring elite squads of the raid to capture, which vice versa could be defended with significantly less elite players due to the npcs being an actual threat.
We fondly remember logging in and joining an ongoing battle that could last for days, contributing what we could in however long our gaming session was, then vacating for another player to fill in when we needed a break. As it stands with the 1.12 version, the BG is a joke and sad shadow of authenticity.
There’s WSG and AB for the instant gratification crowds and lobby based style players. Many coming back are simply going to expect the proper AV experience, alot are coming back purely for it. We can only hope that this is sorted out, but hope is not enough so keep posting your concerns.
