EU Turalyon is another realm with a huge majority of alliance players. For the last couple of months we only see VoA 2-3 hours a week, or in the wee hours of the morning when there aren't enough horde players online to form a raid.It is not uncommon to enter Wintergrasp and see tenacity 14 or 19.I don't know what has happened with the last large patch, because we used to win 1 Wintergrasp every 3 or 4 in the past, and we have historically always had a majority of allies.But I know that a large number of pvp oriented hordies have paid for a faction change since 3.3, and I can't blame them. Most of us are gradually abandoning Wintergrasp altogether, because there isn't a chance to win even when we play well.Blizzard should have changed the mechanics so that a similar number of players is allowed to enter: if 3 hordies are in, let 3-5 allies only enter. 3 vs 80 is no fun.I guess they are getting good money from paid faction changes, and are not in a hurry to fix it.

I see Yenaled has posted already on the same subject.I just wish to confirm that most of horde top guilds, some of them established since 2005/2006 and very competitive, are having major problems (when they haven't disbanded altogether), and a day doesn't pass without some old school player announcing that he is moving to an alliance guild.If pvp is your game, then getting your starter equipment takes 10 times longer on horde.If pve is your game, you don't have access to Wintergrasp gear, shards, and miss the drops and frost emblems from the WG raid instance.Good we're a pve server, because I really can't think what it could be leveling up on a pvp server with a 9:1 alliance/horde ratio :P
