Average wait time for Alterac Valley is now 47 minutes. For my Horde characters. On Alterac Valley weekend. It used to be 2-3 minutes, tops.
Why? Something about an “Alliance Boycott.”
Why are the alliance boycotting? Because they lose now.
Aw. Sniffles. Cry me a freaking river.
Did we turn the tables? Did the Horde all of a sudden get Stormpike as a base, and the Alliance Frostwolf? No. Everything’s physically the same.
Did Horde all of a sudden get some Overpowered class? No, classes are the same for both sides. (Wasn’t always the case.)
Did the Alliance fourteen year old bully boys that got so used to playing like petulent children, and still winning, are they now getting their arses handed to them over and over because, shockers, skill and ability count for something now?
Don’t forget, I play on both sides. An Alliance group is a lot different from a Horde group. We also come from a long, long period of having things a certain way. Alliance alway won AV. Now they’re always losing. (Exceptions granted.)
Ya know, this is Blizzard’s fault. The Horde “boycott” of the early days was to /afk in the cave. Blizzard took that away. Alliance can’t simply /afk in the cave like the Horde used to. Their solution to the problem? Stop playing in AV altogether.
C’mon, you Alliance. Get into the valley and try and take Frostwolf! I dare ya! “I don’t wanna. I want my mommy,” isn’t good enough.
