As of today's maintenance, all of the BG honor hotfixes should be live! http://t.co/kqpgfKXr1f- Lore (@CM_Lore) March 11, 2014
Periodic honor earned in points-based BGs, namely Arathi Basin, Battle for Gilneas, and Eye of the Storm, will be doubled, so you'll get bonus honor every 130 points as opposed to 260. This is altered for Silvershard, where it's every 200, as opposed to 265. The flag capture battlegrounds, Warsong Gulch and Twin Peaks, will see the Focused Assault debuff applied faster in an effort to make them shorter, and there's a bonus for capture prevention. Strand of the Ancients will give a bonus for destroying gates, or preventing their destruction.
It won't outdo the PvE methods for efficiency, but it's a step in the right direction.
