Alliance War scoring makes me laugh

So I took a character who has no PVP skills into Cyro today to get those 25K AP for the crystals. After running through the training for some AP and hitting a delve for the AP bonus, I sneaked into an outside door of a keep my red alliance owned and starting repairing a wall by the door. Then I noticed across the yard a big group of blues attacking the inside keep. So, being sensible, I sneaked out the door and headed for the hills. A few minutes later a big group of blues came riding past and I hid behind a rock. I looked at the map and noticed now the keep was blue. Then I got a message that I had just earned 37K AP. Mission accomplished, I sneaked back to the main camp and took the wayshrine back to Vvanderfell. So I got a bunch of AP for being a sneak and a deserter?

    The system rewards you AP for following things while a keep is being attacked

    killing an enemy near the keep.
    damaging an enemy near the keep (and that enemy is getting killed by someone in your alliance)
    healing friendly players
    repairing keep walls/doors

    You got a defensive AP tick for repairing those walls/doors while an enemy was being killed during that keep siege.

    So yes, system works as intended.

    Remember how people made a fuss about how hard it is to earn AP, when ZOS switched Rapid and Vigor?

    What makes me laugh about the scoring system is that pvp campaings are always won by nitecap=pve.

    You talk like that's past tense.

    PvE players are still hot five (5) months after the Stonethorn change to Rapids.

    What did you expect from a game that has rewarded the zergiest pvdoor faction with the most buffs and making the weak factions weaker? >:)

    Say what? Like 4 months ago maybe. I jump from faction to faction but nice try identifying me with one color. :trollface:
    Played AD the last 3 months. Mainly in Ravenwatch unless we have raid on Gray Host.

    Edit: Nuker got nuked. :trollface:

    All good mate, I jump alliances too. We clashed several times and I remembered your name because I have a screenshot of you stuck in a floor :)
