Personally, I found this article pretty biased and misleading. First of all, "The Alliance" is a fictional faction in a computer game. Treating it with an overarching personality is just flat out dumb. Until you can show me a psychological experiment that shows that the alliance are categorically dumber, whinier, etc. please consider that there are, on average, the same people behind both keyboards.Second of all, my battlegroup has the Alliance winning AV. Some battlegroups the Alliance don't queue up (WoWInsider really needs to stop using the word boycott, because if the Alliance were organized enough to do that, they would probably be organized enough to win). Same exact battleground. Same exact factions. Completely different results.Finally, here are a lot of things in this article that are just misleading:-Iceblood Pass is comparable to Stonehearth NOT Dun Baldur. Dun Baldur has a single bridge, just as the horde base has a single tower which dismounts and is within arrow range of two towers (I could actually argue why this is better). -Horde will reach Stonehearth Bunker before the Alliance. "Defending" Stonehearth is actually attacking it.-The quest text is a result of "popular culture." In this case forum WoW culture. It isn't Blizzard admitting anything. -You could argue "Skip Stormpike" to your skip IBAlso, the common argument that the horde should win all of the sudden after a long period of the alliance winning is easily countered by "the alliance should win this one, since the horde dominate them in other battlegrounds."
