Where is my alliance consolation prize though?
So they have 20 years of experience and data from retail but they still make same mistakes that caused faction imbalance. Give Horde every advantage, ignore Alliance's problems.People went Undead and Orc for PvP instead of nerfing those racials they are just taking away Alliance's short queue advantage and solving Horde's long queue problem. Blizzard never learn. It makes me glad that I haven't even tried TBC knowing that factions would be imbalanced because of racials as a PvP player, seeing such news makes me happy because they've made it worse than I anticipated somehow.
What consultation the bread rewards and 2g ; woahh big win
Why they don't change av also huh; for 2 years we had like 5%winrate cause horde have advantage
They have absolutely killed TBC classic.
you alliance dogs sound like twitter Karens. it causes zero issues for you, that horde can fight each other yet you talk as if this is the end of the world. stop living in the past, not horde's fault you guys were terrible at pvp in classic even at alliance dominated servers
RIP Alliance. Can't recruit for SSC/TK. Dead server throughout the week. Maybe we'll get people back in WotLK.
We have faction imbalance.What to do... What to do...Lets make it worse.
It's a bit disheartening to have Blizzard say that the retail Horde/Alliance imbalance is a player created problem and not addressing the issue in any manner, while at the same time making this change to the same player created problem. They really need to address the imbalance on retail so that Alliance players have a greater pool of people to play with.
A likely conversation from inside Blizzard HQ:"Sir, people are complaining once again about faction imbalance.""Sigh...of course they are. It's always something. What is it this time?""Players are claiming that they can't find groups for the content they want. They have to wait for hours to get a group. They claim the game is unplayable because of it.""And...? We already told them something incredibly vague at Blizzcon & gave absolutely no follow through to those comments. Isn't that enough for those Alliance jerks?""Sir...it's just...these are Horde players complaining.""Wait, Horde players are unhappy? Why didn't you say so before? Quick, get everyone in the meeting room! We'll stay here all night until we have a fix in place!"Overall, I'm glad this solution is working for the Horde & TBC Classic. I just can't deny how hard it is to see Blizz jump so quickly to find a solution for a Horde-based faction problem while I've had to watch so many Alliance guilds transfer out to the Horde in Retail as they can't find people to play with in the Alliance. Blizz's seeming resistance to doing anything other than watching the numbers drop & hope we all faction transfer is honestly irritating at this point.
Wow, such nochanges, very classic BC experience.If I'll gather enough crybabies, will you give us LFR and automated LFD too?
First off, why do alliance always resort to crying memes when they get stopped from being toxic? 2-3 hour queues for bgs was toxic. Period. I would LOVE to see how alliance handle queues like that. Alliance racials are just as strong if not stronger in pvp. Until someone can quantify how stoneform, escape artist, perception, sword skill, shadowmeld, starshards or chastise (just to name a couple) are better than a small stun resist (resist, not break like alliance racials), a small increase to a class (hunters) that let's face it, WON'T even be the biggest presence in bgs horde side (like they are alliance nelfs) or a single fear break that horde have, then the complaint that horde racials are better is invalid. The faction imbalance IS partly player created because some players don't think for themselves and follow whatever meme they see a streamer say. Dead servers and server imbalances are also because ABK cheaped out and made classic servers too big. That's the main problem. With servers reaching 10k populations, its very easy to feel discouraged when you constantly see groups of toxic players interrupting your gameplay, and to claim imbalance, which then morphs in to a player created problem of imbalance due to transfers to "greener pastures" with better balance, making the old server imbalanced to loss of players and the new one imbalanced to intake of players. Which transitions in to the next point. The players are selfish. Period. You don't have the sense of community you did back in OG. It's all about "me, me, me" and not about the health of the game. And it started in classic. "I want to dispell because it's funny. It's not like dispelling people will cause them to transfer to a pve server so they can't be dispelled and create a faction imbalance on my pvp server." "Why would I pay a tank to play the part of the game I want and they don't. It's not like they have a life too, with time constraints towards playing the game, similar to me. They should be unquestionably willing to do what I want and not want the situation to be mutually beneficial" "wait, so 1/2 the community is getting a game stopping issue fixed? So what do I get then?" Grow up, and realize this game takes more than 1 person to play. That just like the real world it's not all about you. Tldr: alliance and horde racials same until you can show the math of how they impact bgs.Long bg queues bad for all, period.Server sizes too big.Stop being selfish.And the fact I have to do a tldr is validation of my statement
