AV *is* unbalanced for Horde. The imbalance doesn't make it impossible to win but it's definitely harder. Here's the problems I see:The bridge. Yes, that one, in Alliance territory. It's an awesome choke point that slows us down a lot (assuming we make it past stormpike, there's no question that GY is a lot harder to take than the Frostwolf GY is.) Our equivalent chokepoint is IB GY...however, that chokepoint more often than not ends up working against us. As soon as IB GY is capped, rezzers are forced to our starting tunnel. When that happens, we now have to ride past the now-Alliance-held IB GY, and more often than not a handful of Alliance players camping there can easily send us right back to the tunnel. (I *HATE* THAT DAMN TUNNEL.)The Alliance base is much better laid out as well. Towers are placed more strategically and Horde invaders are pelted with arrows that hit pretty hard given what they are.I've been on a battlegroup where Horde *ALWAYS* lost AV...hell, before the whole cross-realm battlegrounds thing kicked in, I got to full exalted in AV without seeing a SINGLE win. I've also been on a battlegroup where Horde almost always won. But even on that battlegroup, Horde wins took substantially longer than Alliance wins.
