We overturned a 5-10 man Horde SW City raid on Grobbulus. I honestly could not believe HOW ARROGANT the Alliance acted in victory. They actually acted like they were something hot. Those Horde we defeated a bit later on in IF and at the IF Tram had guts.
This Horde group got so far as to shut down the AH for a bit in SW. They just didn’t bring enough people, though they had a Disc Priest with them.
Given the layout of SW City in the Wrath era, and given that there’s no Azeroth flying, there’s not many positional options to strike. Even so, I couldn’t believe the things I heard in the channels.
I hope Grobb understands that two years ago in Retail, some Horde and I HK’ed some 200 Alliance with a variable 5-10 raid size, having suffered about 50 losses. It’s actually quite that easy when nobody knows it’s happening before it happens. I give some credit for Grobb Alliance for taking the initiative and keeping tabs on the Horde, but little do they know that I myself have a reputation for punishing the Alliance that is coming soon™ to them. There is a PvP resolution to their arrogance.
I only rolled Alliance again as a favor to a couple of Bnet friends of mine, but when Cata hits(and I told them this) it’s going to be a different story. Grobb is not going to like how I intend to REALLY test their true PvP-ness.
That’s not saying the Horde community doesn’t have their faults. They have ways to be caustic, but I appreciated how realistic and sober they are. They’re grounded more in reality. It makes the W’s sweeter and the L’s less bitter.
The Alliance over exaggerate both their wins and their losses not much unlike Terrell Owens.
But yeah, the things we do for friends, or “friends”.
The nice thing is that Grobb has a decently high Alliance margin in pop, so it should be make for a target-rich environment.
I remember it was said that the Alliance leaned more to the newber, younger, and more of the ladies, and the Horde leaned more to the experienced, older, and more of the gentlemen.
Take a 18 year old woman who casually plays MMOs, vs. a 50 year old man who played Ultima and EQ for years back in the day, and chances are they would not be in the same faction. Nothing wrong with that at all, but when it comes to PvP you know who you go up against and who you got on your own team.
And I never made any bones about it: PvPing against the Horde is the suck. It’s hard for anyone. Because middle-aged adults who know what they’re doing longer than some have been alive is tough competition.
Horde is really lazy in Wpvp and that aggravates me to no end. They’ve been lazy for several expacs and it makes Wpvp not worth turning on when you’re 1 out of maybe 8 players in the entire region who’s actually playing and not afking in a main city or sanctuary in the latest zone. Alliance however ARE ALWAYS out and about whether in groups or all solos who happen to be doing the same thing. For horde having “more pop” it seems like most of the pop is just bots.
if you want to be friends, stop harassing people in pvp server. keep it off. just meet them saying hello. no one wants to ruin a perfection. it’s not right to gamble either. give it a rest and come back.
