My previous experience (from playing both a human and orc warrior in Classic) had been negative with the Horde; The players seemed too serious, and many were there for the "I'm the badass wicked-looking badguy" image, which is why I preferred Alliance.When I came back to WoW after Burning Crusade was released, I started a Night Elf druid, and discovered a wonderful guild. I haven't had much of a chance to play my Horde characters, since I'm usually eager to meet up with my friends.That said, when I do play my Horde characters, it seems like the faction has "grown-up" a bit; The players are calmer, and fairly helpful. Trade chat on both factions is pretty rough, though it seems worse on Alliance because there's twice as many people. PvP can be quite rough on either side; Everyone loves healers, except when the healers need a hand. Has anyone else found the HUGE difference in PvP quality during different times of day? I've have my best experiences in BGs and WG around mid-afternoon, with both sides playing smart.PvE-wise, I haven't noticed much of a quality difference; Certainly, there's a bigger number of "L2P's" on Alliance, but there's no shortage of really good players on either side. I think there's more mom's on the Ally-side, too. Interesting, eh?Keep in mind, polls are only valid for the member population; This survey represents the Wow Insider population, rather than the complete WoW community. Still, it's neat to see.

I don't necessarily find that there are specific times where PVPing is of "high quality" I guess. I do however take note where we (Alliance) are doing awesome in one BG and run with it until I start seeing different people start coming into the groups. For example last night we were taking names in SoTA so I just kept queuing for it, as did the same people over and over again...so it was clearly just an awesome group of players. However, once the players started changing and groups started getting separated the quality went back to its usual self.

I learned a long time ago if you hate you battle groups in BG just get of a do it at a different time. If you’re at the highest bracket level and during busy hours, all you have to do is get of for twenty minutes or so to have a totally different experience in BG. There is no real difference Horde and Alliance with regard to PVP skill level, but at certain time of the day the difference can be massive. I play both factions so I should know, but I wish my toons on both sides were on the same Battle Group Server so I could really exploit the difference of player skill levels during different parts of the day
