    Just talked to a GM about people without BFA not being able to join the Anniversary Alterac Valley

    He didn't know shit about Starter Edition and stuff like that, though we were in a separate queue with normal twinks.

    His advise was to report this as a bug. So please EVERYONE report it so that pures might have a chance to join Alterac. If enough people do it, we might get it fixed asap.

    It's not limited to pure-F2P, just to everyone without BfA it seems :/

    Yea, it's BFA content. Guild members who don't have BFA have been unable to que.

    Which means it's unlikely to get changed for f2p. I mean, we can hope, but it's not a bug. It's currently working as designed (though maybe not working as intended, who knows)

    I don't see why this would be considered BFA content, Its Classic AV

    I don’t see this is blizzard screwing anyone? Why would they not let you do certain things as f2p but then open all new events to those not willing to buy the nex expansions. #bigbrain

    Well, it *may* be intended ... but bring it to the official forums and let the community express themself, they might change it.
    Gonna make a post on EU forums when it gets live here, better try than just complaining on xpoff

    It's got a new name and stuff, BFA content. Kinda like how you need BFA to get void elf and lightforged draenei unlocked even though they were legion content.

    Except it's not classic av. It's "inspired by" classic av. Either way, it's not the av that's in the game. It's a holiday instance.

    Much like we didn't use to have access to holiday events, we don't appear to have access to this

    I still think it's worth to report it as a bug in case it is actually a bug. Both the GMs I talked to did not know about this, so I doubt its intended.

    The pet is bugged. The raids are bugged. Mount is bugged?

    I would not be surprised if the queue is also bugged. It makes sense for the raid to be locked due to ilvl restriction but the BG is obviously meant for other level players.

    It's not that pure f2ps cant queue for it, the problem is its BFA only content. You guys not having BFA is just collateral damage.

    Is considering a 15yr old bg BFA content silly? Sure, but I'm not surprised it's the case, they've been getting more and more strict on what you can and cant do without the current xpac lately.

    It seems to be working as designed

    Maybe but it seems like an oversight imo. Only time will tell yo.
    When you learn it, it seems to unlearn itself. You can't summon it once you logout.

    I also swung by Emeriss to see if we could get loot, seems like nothing new there. Feel free to prove me wrong though!

    I was looking forward to this. Why the heck would they gate it behind BFA?
    Everyone from lvl 10 + was supposed to be able to celebrate the 15 year anniversary.....
    What a bunch of pecker heads, gating it like that.
    Well, back to Classic I guess.....

    It's technically a "re-imagination" of AV, not actually AV. Doesn't even have the same name, hence it being "BFA content"

    I'm not huge on the fact that they made it BFA content either but I don't understand how so many ppl think it makes no sense for it to be considered BFA content

    may be because it is not walled behind 110-120...
    i don't know but what other BFA content could you do below lvl 110?
    yet this event can be done by anyone lvl 10-110 only if you have BFA.
