Raiding the Crossroads should really be a non-issue for Horde players. The Barrens is a Horde territory, so there is no forcing players to PvP, even on a PvP server. Southshore, on the other hand, on my server (Smolderthorn) at least, is constantly under attack from the Horde. Since the territory is contested, everyone is fair game. It gets crazy, but it is fun so long as there are adequate Alliance forces to put up a resistance. Nesingwary's, though not technically a raid target, because of its convenience to Grom'Gol is nearly unplayable PvE on my server except during mid-day when server traffic is light. Again, contested territory, so no way to opt out of PvP. When I played Horde, I found the raids on Crossroads amusing, sometimes frustrating when the quest NPC I needed had just been killed, but never more than very mildly inconvenient. Though to answer one of your question. Would constantly raiding Crossroads get boring? Most definitely. Few lowbie players are dumb enough to flag PvP against a lvl ?? on an epic ride, so where's the fun in it? I would imagine the fun of constantly assailing Southshore is the fact that you get to battle with actual players and not just guards. And unfortunately, the Allaince faction on my server is too disorganized to make any attempts at, say, Grom'Gol, though I have tried to get a party or two together to do that.
