First of all these are pick up groups designed to give everyone a chance to be in a BG. Second one can't expect a bunch of strangers to work out a plan in the little time given before the BG starts. A sure sign, for me, is when I ask if anyone has a plan and I am told, something like die, who needs a plan...etc. That said, I play both sides and have found, in general, the Horde seem to know how to stick together much better than the Alliance. When with my Alliance group it is not uncommon to try and defend someplace and all of a sudden find myself alone while the other defenders run off to do who knows what. I don't find this happening as often with my Horde groups. I love the Alliance but it is really frustrating to loose as often as we do. But again, we are all PUGers and this is to be expected because you just don't get to play with the same people over and over.For once I will not go into my usual rant about Rogues...ah, well, what the heck .....Kill all Rogues ;-)

Yeah....but really, the plan is the same for every BG. It's not like you need a 10 minute lead time to come up with a plan. Some of these BGs have been around for 6 years. If you are in AB the plan is to call out the three nodes and leave defenders there. Easy Peasy. In SOTA you simply call out the gate you are concentrating on. In AV you shouldn't even need a strategy, it's the same everytime. The main problem with PUG BGs is that people go there to massage their EPeen with PVP. If you want pure pvp, then you really should play arena. BGs are different in that they require planning and strategy and DEFENSE. Running around racking up honor kills is usualy the best way to LOSE a bg. And yet you have that one rogue or hunter that spams "Look at how many I killed! Look at the board! you guys suck! what are you doing?"It's like the people that go around ganking lowbies and saying how hard and badass they are. "it's pvp, it's pvp!". No it's not. It's being a dumbass.

"When with my Alliance group it is not uncommon to try and defend someplace and all of a sudden find myself alone while the other defenders run off to do who knows what."Oh that's my personal favorite. I managed to get a nice set of pvp healing gear - nothing fancy, I fail at arenas, so it's all honor bought - so I actually manage to live for more than two seconds when attacked. I'll pick a person to follow, we'll stay on defense, then some horde will ride by and the other person takes off like that horde said something about his mother. Ok... I'm sure the horde will be so impressed with my ability to heal that they'll just fall over dead! That's how it works, right?
