When I ran Alli, it was always depressing to get into a BG, then watch the clearly-better-organized Horde wipe the floor with us, and listen to the "U tardz all SUK" talk from someone who wouldn't be nearly so brave in person.Some RL friends of mine convinced me to faction-change to raid with their guild (which suffered the Cataclysm-death, like so many guilds have). To pass the time as I level a new healer, I go into BGs.And it's depressing to watch the clearly-better-organized Alliance wipe the floor with us. *sigh*

So you're saying it's your fault?

The grass is always greener, my friend.I thought about transferring my pvp character to alliance for the same reason...Luckily, we're winning more often now.

Definitely a "grass is greener" case.I used to get the same thing too: BGs were merely an exercise in how much Honor you could farm before the Alliance wiped the floor with your team, with absolutely awful teams throughout: endless arguing, half the team Jenkinsing themselves against the better-coordinated opponents, and a few sitting at the spawn point complaining about how Horde sucks at PvP. I made an Alliance alt at some point, and the very first BG he got into, the team was organized, cooperative, stuck together, and completely wiped the floors with the Horde. At the time, it seemed like the stigma was accurate.But recently I made a PvP healer to pair up with a friend of mine, and while we still get the occasional fail-squad (mostly in AV matches), we've also gotten highly skilled teams that steamrolled completely unorganized Alliance teams. Both side's got its share of issues.And bspauldin, though your comment was in poor taste, I couldn't help but laugh at how perfect its comedic timing was.

I used to feel the same way.Then I rolled a prot pally and ... win rate over 70%. AND ... I would sometimes enter WSG down 2 flags cuz someone deserted, and run two back for the win (or 3 ...). Learning about pots (Rumseys and swiftness FTW) and strats (where you run makes a difference?) really helps. Not sure where you learn that stuff, though. I learned it from trying to figure out why the Belf paladins were always 1) drunk and 2) unkillable (lol). And the right chants help as well. But then PvP becomes expensive.

After all these years I have only seen half a dozen organized alliance BG's. We've won some, but not due to organization. Is that true horde-side as well?
