Omg yes! Thank you blizz! You’re even squashing the alliance premades! 6 month sub incoming.
Exactly. We’ve been acting like brats.
GODS YES. This was the change I was looking for. Premades were making BGs horrible when you’re going solo and get thrown into a whole team of premades and get stomped and GY camped 2 mins in.
I wanted a merc mode.
I suppose the theory is with Alliance being the minority faction (esp. on PvP), their economies are already a little wonky to begin with. I see it all the time on OB. Just not enough Hordies gathering mats, prices go every which way. I don’t see why Alliance shouldn’t get a little extra reward for queuing now that the premades are getting broken down to 5.
does not the technology exist to detect and designate premades vs premades groups?
As a Horde player, I can get behind that… give them a bonus amount of honor. They’re the lesser populated faction and doesn’t PVP as much, maybe they’ll see that and play. Hopefully. Can’t force em.
How would alliance getting mats effect horde economy?
how about just grouped BGs and non-grouped BGs
dont hate it
Thanks for the update Kaivax
You facilitated the massive imbalance on the servers. Warmode of free transfers.
imagine being on a server where this is a problem lmao
Love that you are nixing premades. I was forced to queue with a couple of friends because it was VERY obvious that if you were in a group you got true Horde and I never ONCE got a premade group against me. If I queued solo I ALWAYS got a premade group against me and it was impossible to win a game. Made the faster queue times worthless because you wouldn’t get any honor anyway. Don’t like that you are pandering to alliance crybabies though by giving them a loot box for staying in their faction. They really think their racials are so bad that Horde should be that far behind on their honor gear as a result? Just buff their racials then, I don’t want to have to verbally interact with those players. Keep them on alliance.
This is an interesting test.
This is TRASH… you talk about spirit of TBC but allow same side BGS and other bs. GTFO
Great change. Thank you for bringing it back. Sad that I can’t really queue with a large number of people from my guild, but I get it. Should be interesting to see the BG’s be more ‘random’ and 'organic.
Also notice how ABSOLUTELY NONE OF THE HORDE!!! will complain about Alliance getting a bonus… Why is this? Because we don’t give a flying fish about Ally getting Benefits… We just wanna get our honor gear, lol.
It never seems to be enough for Alliance players. Color me shocked.
A Tsunami warning is now in effect for most of the Eastern Kingdoms due to the massive amounts of Alliance tears to be produced over the following week.
Remember to bring an umbrella and keep all sandwiches in plastic baggies.
Why the obsession with disallowing teamwork? Why not work to enable it for more people? Its literally promoting a dumbed down version of the game.
