I tried the weekend warfront for Black Garden recently, and found it MUCH more enjoyable than the standard version.

There's more strategy involved, and less chance of simply being locked out.
A lesser geared team can win with good teamwork and strategy, which in the standard version is not really possible as it's just plain boring 'zerg the middle'.

Sure some people didn't seem to know what to do, but they are probably new to it.

It's annoying I can't play my now favourite warfront until it pops up again in maybe 4-5 weeks for only 2 days!
