Damn I play horde and so far have won most of the BGs I've participated in. Today however I experienced the two worst rounds of Arathi I ever saw. No group spirit to speak of, just headless chaos. No directions after the first "Team 1 left, Team 2 right, Team 3 middle" - which worked partially. My team captured the saw right away and held it fast the whole game. Trouble was that all the other players would either run around aimlessly alone or in pairs of 2, just to be slaughtered over and over again by alliance or stay at the saw - as if 8 people defense where needed. We just couldn't get a foot on the ground and the guys running around would always start yelling for help against 5 or 6 alliance when they were - oh wonder - alone *gasp*.We only managed to hold the saw and not much else. Sometimes the 2 others of my team and me managed to chase away the frightful guys into battle - at best in 5er groups directed and concentrated, but they sucked anyway ^__-The only time we got another base was when I was so pissed and bored (at alliance 1600 / horde 350 ressources) that I stealthed into an alliance base that was defended by a 32'er rogue. I nerfed that one pretty quick - being a feral skilled 39'er druid in cat-form. Then I had enough time to take over that base before the alliance reinforcements arrived.When we were done there and I complained about the worst BG I ever played, we could join the next round. That one was even worse. I think they killed us off in under 10 minutes. That time I only deffed and tried to direct that bunch of loosers that were my horde group. Unfortunately they couldn't manage anything even with directions. My directions might not have been the best, but the best I could come up with when no one provided me with any information from the battlefield...Anyhow, that was so frustrating I gave up on becoming pvp-lvl 3 before turning 40. I just couldn't stand those loosers. Afterwards, when I complained again about our poor performance (civil, I didn't even call one player a noob - I just said how terrible we were as a team), they yelled at me "that's normal" and "hey it's a bg, what do you expect? of course we get nerfed all the time!". I think I found the first horde players that I ever remember, who'll probably go around and kill off low-alliance players because they suck so much in actual, fair pvp. To sum up a long post: Sometimes even leadership doesn't help. If the group has no spirit and is chaotic to the bone you sometimes can't help it.
