    did you alt-f4 out of a battleground that froze up? that'll stick you in limbo for a while, i guess that's better than zoning out on a different server though.

    No. But I had just experienced a queue bug where I joined AV and it dropped my queue without joining. 1 hour of waiting wasted. :noid:

    New in 2.0 - 'deserter' now means you can't enter existing queues. Before the patch it only meant you couldn't start new queues.

    New PVP mounts require 150 riding and lvl 60, but the old PVP mounts (like mine I bought at rank 11) are still at 75 riding and lvl 55. The change was not retroactive.

    New graphic for Mark of the Dragon Lord that kicks ass. It's a purple "netherish" ball that swirls around you, shaman style. I have never seen this graphic and neither has anyone else. It appears to be unique. I get lots of queries about it.

    PvP is great for making enemies. I have alienated so many people from other servers. People from Hyjal tend to rally behind me when the crap talking starts, as if they need to defend their server regardless of whether or not I am being a dick. It's like a fractal for modern politics.

    The honor gains were nerfed today:

    per tick
    old AV = 20
    new AV = 14

    old wsg = 54?
    new wsg = 40

    old AB = 28
    new AB = 20

    Honestly I thought it seemed a little easy. GM weapons would be everywhere. The fact that all the noobs (read: Jaden) were back in PvP was a good indication. :p

    On a side note, I am digging arenas even though they don't count yet. Of course I have to hide for a few moments to avoid the "OMG CLOTHIE - KILL IT!!!" reaction from every one of the opponents, but that's no different than most forms of PvP.

    It's still very easy. A 30% reduction isn't much. It took me 3 days for rank 13 shoulders, now it will take 4. It will take about 5-6 days for GM 1h weapon, now it will take 7-8.

    Yeah I'm torn, I'm more of a staff guy, but the GM weapon and offhand are very nice. The GM staff does look very cool, although the sword/offhand is comparable stats with more damage. Plus the staff needs 40 AV marks, and AV makes me want to stab myself in the eyes.
