It’s not a perfect system but at least it lets me play my character. Hoping it becomes permanent.

Glad to see stats on the win ratios and open world deaths, this helps confirm some of the assumptions and quells some perceived concerns that came up prior to testing.

I think the main issue with same-faction BG’s was the sheer number of premade groups, and the lack of matchmaking considerations when accounting for them. Is there any chance that a premade vs premade preference could be included?

I dont know why the devs are fake-pretending to mull this change over.
The decision has pretty much already been made to make the change.

The dev team doesn’t pretend to care what the players think on retail; why are they doing the fan dance over here?

So everything worked out great, Why is there a next test then. Release it and deal with wintraders later. No one cares, people just want to play the game.

Don’t even test again. Just implement this stuff. This is our time and it is valuable. Stop futsing around while we wait one hour for a que and do whats right for Horde faction.

Thank you!

Thank you for understanding Blizz. Its unrealistic to punish all of the horde player base because a handful of alliance players are upset.

Good to hear that the low level ganking is going down. “People who care about playing alliance will keep playing alliance with or without this change” yeah the people on pve server will stay. The alliance on pvp servers I’m not sure about. I had two geared level 60 horde characters in classic and switched to ally because I knew the que were going to be bad for horde.

Because then they don’t need to deal with the backlash of adding it while also getting the benefit of adding it. Its added, it’s just PR BS.

Thank you, as an alliance player I support this change as it makes more casual horde queue up, increasing my win rate >:D. Hehe.

Thanks for the update! This is great news, the initial findings are positive - I look forward to the gathering of more information and hopefully the most polished implementation of this crucial fix.
