Every game in AB is the same.
I sign up for the first available. 8 times out of 10 I join something in progress, and always, ALWAYS, Horde control 4 resources and Alliance is struggling to hold on to the stables. I can’t tell you how often I join a game in that state.
It’s amazing that 15 Horde can 1) manage to take and hold four resources, and 2) still mount a MASSIVE assault on the stables. It’s even more amazing that Tauren Warriors and Orc and Forsaken ‘locks and Rogues look so awesome and our Nelfs and Gnomes are … where the hell is everyone? We’re all dead. Looking pretty with our shiney armors and stuff.
It’s massively sad.
And on games where I do start with a locked gate, Alliance will take the stables, head for the mines, a smattering will head for the lumbermill and nobody goes to the blacksmith.
Do I have such an incredible influence on events? I mean when I play my Horde, the Horde are the village idiots and the Alliance the rampaging heroes. Can I, little ol’ me, make such a difference? It certainly seems to be so.
On the plus side I only have 7 more AB’s to go, i.e 7 more AB Marks, and I’m done with the place. That’ll get me the 70 Marks I need for all the armor pieces.
And I guess I’ll keep my level 48 Guttbuster because I’d sooner gouge my eyes out with a spoon than suffer another 40 more losses in AB to get the High Warlord’s gun.
