There. I said it. It’s just utterly absurd how bad Horde is. They don’t even try anymore.
It’s all self-reinforcing. We lose, so why bother, so we’ll AFK, so we lose worse, so we bother less, so we AFK more, and we lose even worse, so we bother even less, and so we AFK even more.
All the while the Alliance, after waiting 40-50 minutes to log on, basically have free reign to do what they want.
I know. My 66 Night Elf Hunter rarely encounters anything one might refer to as “opposition”.
Tonight, I log into AV. On Blackhoof. True, blue, Horde. And you know you’re in a bad position with a game in progress.
Not just in progress, the map is blue.
Wait, it gets worse.
So the maps blue, and Alliance are coming into the cave.
This is the worst I’ve ever seen. Literally everyone who wasn’t on Drek, what 10-15 of them?, the rest where attacking us in our own cave?
We made a few forays outside the cave, but this is what I joined. A total insult to the Horde.
And someone said “This is punishment for AFKers.” WHAT??? They’re mocking us at this point. Out and out dissing us. There’s absolutely no reasons whatsoever to show us a modicum of respect. We’ve lost all of it. We deserve absolutely none.
So, I do what I do. I heal.
I think my heals helped push us outside the cave entrance. Where we fought our last battle, before we lost.
See, this didn’t punish the AFKers. What it did was earn them HK’s! That’s right! Rather than the usual 0,0,0 “I poo on you” score, these wipes actually earned HK’s.
Me, oddly, for joining late, I top the heals chart for Horde.
Alliance earned 501 Honor for this. Horde 82.
You know, I guess the comedy of it is, in the end, Horde probably gets equal honor since they don’t wait nearly as long for queues to pop.
Rampage Battlegroup, Horde, 61-70 Bracket in AV. C’mon. Reroll your Gnome Rogues already. Clear out and let us get some players in here.
