Another Sad Day For The Alliance In The Battlegrounds 11/12/09

When I got on Wranngar my daily battelground today was Warsong Gulch so I skipped it. I hate Warsong Gulch, way too much trouble for what you get out of it. I did do 3 Alterac Valley, all losses, and 3 Eye of the Storm, 1 win and 2 losses.

In Eye of the Storm we were just outclassed in one of our losses, although the 3 AFK could have made a difference. There have been more and more AFK in the battlegrounds lately, the problem is far from getting better, it is getting worse. People don't even bother reporting them anymore, they say why bother, nothing gets done. That appears to be the truth as it is the same people you see in there AFK every day. The other battle we lost was Flagtards and AFK. We had one tower and were fighting hard to keep that because most of our team was in the middle fighting for the flag. It is sad. The one we won had a bunch of Flagtards in it too, I don't know how we pulled it off but we did. The Horde seemed to have a lot of Flagtards too in that one so they were not really worried about the 2 towers we had or trying to get them back, that helped a lot.

One of the main problems these days in AV is the fact that it usually starts with a gross unbalance of players in the Hordes favor. We all know Blizzard favors the Horde in AV, they always have, but as if their advantage on reinforcements weren't enough, they are starting the battles out with the Horde outnumbering us 4 to 1. The last battle I was in started 10x40 in the Hordes favor. Needless to say we ended up turtling after being killed without even being able to cap a GY we were so outnumbered. It took 10 minutes into the battle before we had 40 players. Anyone who has fought in AV knows the battle is already decided 10 minutes into it. It is not a matter of people not queueing either, I have waited 4 minutes in queue to get into a battle that was already 5 minutes in progress and the Alliance only had 19 players. I believe this is yet one more thing Blizzard is doing to give the Horde an advantage.
