Be careful what you wish for,
You may not get what you want
Only a week or so ago, when patch 3.2.2 landed with a thud, it brought a few changes to the battlegrounds.
One of those changes I was uncertain about.
On the positive side I would always be entering numerically equal battlegrounds.
On the negative side, the price I would pay is having to wait longer for the BG queue to pop.
But wait, there’s more
Combined with these other two changes, I was left will time on my hands.
Bad news if both queues filled the moment before I joined… Hello 30 minute wait.
Bad news if I decide to put the kettle on or anything else that takes longer than 40 seconds. Hello re-queue.
But, but something has changed. I think since my wonderful Saturday night (thanks again Blizz!).
I am getting into BGs that aren’t numerically balanced… or even full…
Of Alliance anyway!
This BG scoreboard shot was taken at the height of the Alliance population.
We started at 4 to 10
Long odds even for uber PvPers like myself (cough cough)
- Needless to say the BG was over long before the 25 minute timer.
- Needless to say we lost.
- I probably don’t even need to tell you that we lost 0/3.
Of course when 50% of your potential BG population is waiting to respawn at the GY, and that 50% actually comprises 100% of your forces, there isn’t much to stop the Horde grabbing and capping your flag.
Props to the Alliance (I’ve been throwing them around like sweets lately), we didn’t give up and no one left the BG till it was all over.
Of course the BG finished before we could have hearthed anyway…

These days we all blame Syrana, but I have evidence that she is involved.
Well her and 665 of you…
