Oh jeez not wowinsider too....I don't know how to make it any clearer. THERE IS NO BOYCOTT.THERE IS NO BOYCOTT.THERE.IS.NO.BOYCOTT.People are simply queuing for BGs that net them the best honor for their time. If the horde play with a certain strategy then the chances of an Alliance win go down dramatically. It isn't impossible, but it isn't as easy as L2P either.There is no boycott. Don't be an idiot.

There is no boycott.If Blizzard wants to fix AV increase the honor awarded for losing.Fixed.

lol. My main is alliance and I started leveling a tauren on a server in the same battlegroup. It shocked me to see how many horde really believe there is a boycott on AV.Before: Alliance won all the time, but horde still got honor so they still queued for AVNow: Horde win all the time and alliance get no honor for losing so they go to other bg's for honor. It just doesnt' make sense to join AV.THERE IS NO BOYCOTT, JUST A WORTHLESS BG FOR ALLIANCE.

There is no boycott, but on battlegroups where Horde play defense, Alliance don't want to Q up for games that give them 0 honor.So it's more like going into battlegrounds that give people honor. It might as well be a boycott, it's easier to explain that way.

Of course there isn't a boycott!They're just actively choosing not to queue for AV!How dumb of me!

This is crucial to note, because once the phrase "QQ" is bandied about it carries a strong negative judgement that has to be responded to.Horde participated in imbalanced AV preTBC because they still received honor gains for time spent. The difference in this situation (and yes, I spent 6 months in BG9 where the Scorched Earth tactic is the rule) is that Alliance saw 0-60 honor for time spent in AV.With so little honor to be had, we did the math and made the sensible choice: queue for BGs where we get some honor for our effort.All during the many months where the "we don't agro on horde bug" plagued Van and his WMs I continued to queue for AV losses because I still saw honor for my time spent. This isn't about a boycott or senseless QQ--this is about how you want to spend your time.
