Wranngar AV 4/9/08

I did 8 AV's today on Wranngar, we had 6 losses and 2 wins. The Alliance is still doing pretty bad in AV :(. It is hard to believe that we could go from winning 50%+ after the 2.4 patch to losing 70% of the time now but we did. Axeelina was in 7 of them with me, she needed marks to get her trinket, Battlemaster's Determination, which she ended up getting :). I got my other trinket today too, Battlemaster's Cruelty. Once again the Alliance's biggest problem was lack of coordination and teamwork. Rushing FWGY while getting TP & IBT on the way still works and works well, the problem is people are not working together to do that anymore. Now people want to get Galv first or rush right to FWRH (Actually rushing FWRH works more often than getting Galv first). Then what happens is the raid breaks up into small groups. One small group to Galv, one small group to FWGY, one group tries to go for FWRH, while another stops and tries to get IBGY. Of course you always have a few that stop and try to hold Stonehearth GY which is not a bad thing as long as they don't try too hard. In our 2 wins we rushed FWGY as a group capping towers on the way. We moved up to FWRH and got the Frostwolf towers. We only killed Drek in one of the battles, we won the other on reinforcements when our last tower capped. I think the Alliance is mostly made up of younger kids, in one of the battles a warlock summoned an elemental then turned it loose when the gate opened. It went crazy causing half the people to go into combat so they couldn't mount. Needless to say we got off to a bad start on that one. Another big problem I see in AV is people defending SH too long. I have seen people defend SHGY to the point where the Horde moves into Dun Baldar unchallenged. I really can't figure out what it is about SH but it has cost us more battles. I was battleground leader in a couple of the battles but being leader in AV these days is kind of an embarassment. If the people would actually listen to and follow the leaders plan it would be one thing but there are at least 5 or 6 people shouting out 5 or 6 different sets of directions then everyone goes off and does their own thing anyway. Hopefully some day the Alliance will get it together. I was working towards an Alliance Battle Standard but I am going to get Gladiator's Idol of Resolve or Gladiator's Idol of Tenacity first, I haven't decided which yet, but I only need about 3400 honor. Then I will get the battle standard.
