That’s just a real shame. For the Horde that is.

It seems the Alliance have developed a new strategy. That is to farm HK’s on the way to their win. Since when do the Alliance take and hold Stonehearth Graveyard? Since this last weekend. I know. Msaker was among those struggling to take it from them. How is it CONCIEVABLE!?!?! that the Alliance can hold anywhere with 3-5 people? It’s absolutely absurd, and outrageous. Further, why can’t Horde manage to take it? And why is my Warrior always out there, on point, alone? Good grief everyone.

So, good news for Arcarius. He’s getting more HK’s now, i.e. even more Honor than usual, since Alliance seems to be farming them in the push south. I’m just loving it, hanging out at the Iceblood Graveyard flag, picking off Horde travelling north. I’m thinking “There, but for the grace of alts, go I. … Pew, pew, pew. Meet Kitty. ‘Hello, Kitty!’ Ah ha ha!”

They were harder wins, these latest for the Alliance, but wins nonetheless. Again, Alliance defended with half it’s force, and only needed like 1/4 of it to get into FW Keep and eventually take out Drekk. Again, Horde defended, via recall, not a standing defense, with a handful of victims … er, brave souls.

I found out something really cool too. Yes, the queue for Alterac Valley for Arcarius, Alliance, is 30-40 minutes now. (So strange that for my Horde characters it’s just 1 minute. Is that because everyone wants to be on a winning team, and nobody wants to be on a losing team?) But that wait is okay, since he’s level 51, the flight to Searing Gorge from Ironforge is a minute and a half. Yow! 1.5 minutes. You know how long it takes to get there from the Undercity? Forever. This is absolutely ideal for an Alliance character in his 50′s, grinding his way to 60, and doing as many BG’s as he can. Yet another terrain advantage given to the Alliance.

    I think the difference in queue times stems from the total imbalance in Alliance to Horde ratio on PvE servers. On many it’s 2:1. If the same percentage of ally want to PvP as Horde, you’re looking at twice as many Alliance queueing up as Horde. Thus the number of Horde is going to determine the number of BGs and you shouldn’t have to wait at all.

    160 Horde queue up for AV and 320 Alliance queue. All the Horde and the first 160 Ally are going to get into BGs very quickly, the next 160 Ally will have to wait for openeings amongst that first 160.
