I've been preaching this to Alliance for years, but it falls on deaf ears. Bottom line is that they don't care about the FC, they care about leeching honor while watching Family Guy in their mom's basement.--------------------How to counter THEIR forward movement.--------------------Nets from tailoring. awesome. Also ENG has a version.FearRoot/TrapChill/SlowDispel/Purge (remove stuff like hand of freedom and CD's that grant a buff)etc...-------How to make sure YOU keep moving (your tricks)-------Nets etc (if that warrior is in a net, he can't hamstring you again.)LIVING ACTION POTION - they still work, and they're still better than a trinket (1 min CD)Swiftness potion (run speed, combine with racials/class abilities, and a BG power-up (boots) and you're basically turbocharged for the entire length of a WSG fieldLesser Flask of Resilience (+50 Resil 1 hr, standard flask rules) If you're alive, you can be helpful. If you're dead, you can't be helpful. It really is that simple.-------------------That said, when in doubt KILL THE ENEMY FC. Don't chase the random mage. Chase. If you do nothing but chase the enemy flag carrier, not only will you get oodles of honor (assuming you don't just get your ass handed to you), you'll be helping your team FAR FAR more than being one of the uninformed morons in the middle who are randomly selecting whichever target happens to run close enough to them. (And yes, that's a common Alliance strat. It's called lazy strat. Report these people and they get replaced. If you choose to not report afkers or middle-morons, then it's your own fault when you lose. Blizz gives you the tools, but it's up to you to actually click the damn button.)

Probably good points ruined by your condescending demeanor.What a shame.

I'm pretty sure that's not condescension, but frustration speaking in his post.

"Report AFK Player" is for botters who are actually AFK, off in a corner somewhere. Don't report middle-huggers.

I know it will not make you feel better, but issues exist everywhere. The Horde side has the same player types that you have seen on the Alliance side.Having said that, I agree with @fudge - presentation and language can make a difference, and valid points get lost when not presented right (or are served with a side order of character judging).

I still think downvoting this is too harsh. The points stand, and are very valid. I dislike WG for the precise reason that players always seem to insist on acting the way Fluufykins describes here. And no matter how much you tell them in /bg chat to get out of the middle and either protect our FC or kill the enemy's, it's not happening.Aaaaargh.

Same old WoW insider comments; someone makes a fair point and someone like fudge comes along and snarks at them... sigh...
