k. Doesn’t change my point, our team has same problems of lack of effort and we overcome it. There are a handful of dedicated AV players like myself who can turn tide with 5-6 people, change layout of a battle, and make a push happen if we need to.
Well, I made it to Warlord without Warsong. I started today and I’ve lost a handful of times, and we still put up a fight.
You can keep raging, spitting, and attacking the person, or, you can admit Alliance sucks at AV. You guys dominated it back in my day after the changes. I know the strats, because I countered them sometimes!
The primary problem is you all still treat it as a PvE rush. The teams that actively engage in PvP are the winners, just like when I rallied Horde to defend against the premades that put trash tier PvPers in top ranks and gear for me to tear down for massive gains over the last few weeks.
Thing is Horde outrage in the past has been justified due to Alliance actually having to cheat to win. I honestly didn’t care because I just like to PvP and prefer when games are more even. The problem is the AV problem isn’t a problem in other regions. Alliance in NA are genuine crybabies who shoot themselves in the foot. They afk, avoid PvP in favor of rushing, or just giving up. Meanwhile in other regions Alliance are winning over 50% of the time in AV. I have zero sympathy but would honestly rather you cry babies just try. Today I actually lost an AV. First time all week. But you know what? It was fun as hell. We played tug of war at SH then IB, then SF, then back to IB then we got pushed back all the way to base. But it was a blast. If we lost half the games but they were all like that? I’d really enjoy AV. Stomping a team that gives up after their failed attempt at avoiding PvP is not fun.
Most alliance in AV now are casual players, alts, and raiders for exalted gear. Alliance has very few pvp spec’d players, because most of them in the que are from pve servers. They did exactly what you wanted in P2, “lul reroll pve.” No serious pvp player who is 60 goes into AV, it’s just a stop gap to solo que when your premade isn’t running.
Don’t try and rank in AV. Its not worth it.
Once I hit exalted I was done with AV but on the request from people who are ranking I do 1 AV a week on Monday night in order to make sure I hit 15 hks and also so I don’t drop below rank 6 so I can continue to access those sweet, sweet Combat Mana Pots. Got lucky this week, lot of T2 geared people and our entire team hit IBGY and horde didn’t know what to do, kept pushing north and didn’t react to the cap in time. 1 for 1 this week.
