Battlegrounds 8/2/08

Today was not a great day for the Alliance in the battlegrounds. I fought in all of them on Wranngar. I was in 3 Arathi Basin, 1 win 2 losses, it was my daily today, 5 Alterac Valley, all losses, 7 Eye of the Strom, 5 wins and 2 losses and 7 Warsong Gulch, 2 wins and 5 losses.

In Arathi Basin we just couldn't seem to get it together and work together. It took 3 battles to get my win and that was enough for me. In our 2 losses we couldn't seem to get more than 2 nodes capped at one time. Of course everyone was running around doing their own thing instead of grouping up and working as a team. One person would go after the Farm while another single person would go after the LM and another after the BS. Finally in the last battle we worked together and had a 4 cap to win in not much time at all. I got my 11g99s, 419 extra honor and 3 Arathi Basin Mark of Honor for a total of 5 for the day.

Alterac Valley was a total wash, it is their holiday weekend and I usually try to stay away from battlegrounds on their holiday weekend but decided to go ahead and fight in there anyway. The only good thing I can say about it is I got a lot of kills. The weekend warriors and AFKers were out in full force, it was pretty sad. That is about all I am going to say about AV, we never got into a position to even think about taking down Drek but people were still calling to "go kill Drek, that's what we need to do to win". You can tell those are the weekend warriors that have no clue what they are doing in there because it takes a good group to take down Drek with even 2 towers up and there was no way these groups were going to do it with 4 towers up.

After AV I decided to go into Eye of the Storm to get the foul taste of defeat out of my mouth. We usually do good in EoS and today was no exception. We pretty much worked together as a group and had some good groups. The two we lost were because of bad grouping, possibly weekend warriors that strayed into the wrong battleground lol. We won the 5 battles with a wide margin on most but the last one I was in we won by less than 100. The Flag in EoS is there for the same reason Galv is in AV, to slow down the clueless and it works well. It is a much faster win to have a 4 or even 3 cap then it is to cap 2 and run the flag but people either can't or refuse to understand that.

I actually had a pretty good time in Warsong Gulch even though we did not win a lot of them, I like to run the flag and one battle I capped all 3 for the win. I run back to our flag room with the flag going up the very right hand side of the battleground, I stick right to the edge and get very little interference. I don't really need the marks for anything but I can use the honor to upgrade my gems.
