Agreed. I do think there should have been a solution as horde queues will keep getting worse but this solution is so bad. Even though I talk about impatience a lot and mean it I do think some sort of solution to this is a good thing.
The solution that made the most sense to me was free or paid horde to alliance (only) transfers. People were willing to do it. They said so. It wouldn’t have harmed anyone. It wouldn’t have caused issues with balance on PVP servers either but instead helped with that. What they did was the easy fix that doesn’t fit at all with the game and its like even they think it’s a total joke with the Halloween masks. Its in testing phase so there’s hope but I’m not expecting a lot.
