I don't know how it is on all the other servers. But on Oly (atm), BF has gone completely crazy. I went 3 times yesterday and at one time there were over 300 people battling at the monument. Once inside, there were battles over and over for all the spots to farm. At Wratch, 5 spot exp, 5 at Sloth, and every other spot was packed with at least 1-2 parties farming.
The raids are just sick. 4-5 of the top clans on each side going at it. I have to say the battles are epic all time pk. I have gone to interserver and WC but BF is better, at least for now.
And I am starting to gain back the coins I lost when coin storage accounts were banned. After a year of trying to get mine back, I just gave up and lost hope...glad BF is back.
