I want to give my condolences to a great battleground name Alterac Valley. You have brought me a lot of gear, hatred toward AFK’ers, honor and you were there when I needed PVP. With your passing on December 17, 2008, it will be difficult to PVP without you.
Rest in peace old friend, you’ll be sorely missed.
In all seriousness, Blizzard killed the battleground with out removing it from the game. They simply removed the need for token to purchase he PVP gear and the need for AV tokens when completing the repeatable quest For Great Honor.
In a way I am disappointed that I have a lot of AV tokens that I can’t utilize for honor points.
