I'm not claiming they are balanced overall, but I am claiming that if they merged them to one battlegroup they would be worse.The disparity between alliance and horde has historically been around 2:1 in favor of alliance. wowcensus.com is down atm so I can't link to the exact numbers.If all the servers merged together, there would be twice as many alliance players queue'ing for BGs vs the horde. 2000 alliance players and 1000 horde players means that half of the alliance players are waiting for horde to finish their games to start the next round.Obviously there are many servers were horde outnumbers alliance despite the overall trend. Blizzard more than likely used these servers to attempt to balance the ratio as much as they could in each battlegroup.Or maybe they didn't, I've never actually seen a blue comment on this, just my 2c :)
