Neither of these are 'exploits'.The first one mentioned, the /AFK 'trick', simply duplicates the intended functionality of kicking inactive players out of battlegrounds. The "Deserter" debuff that one receives after doing this prevents you from joining another battlegrounds queue for a full 15 minutes - "shortly" is rather misleading.The second instance described betrays the author's infamiliarity with the battlegrounds system. The group leader is not limited to queueing for one battleground at a time - they may "join as group" to both WSG and AB at once ("Join as group" is not enabled for AV, so everyone must queue on their own for that battleground). It isn't required that the BG leader stay out of the battleground to do this - and for the 'scouts' who went ahead to check out their opposition, the leader cannot requeue the group for the same battleground until all members are out of the BG, which means they must either a) play the entire game to a win or loss; or b) /afk out of the BG as per above, which also prevents them from joining another BG queue for fifteen minutes. As you can see, waiting 15 minutes between queues (not between games, between the act of actually getting in line for one) quickly becomes impractical to simply ensure yourself the best odds possible.I understand the submitter's desire to inform the community of the latest and more dire dangers affecting the game and community, but perhaps a little more experience with and understanding of the subject would serve him better in future.
