Alliance, should I just give up?

Battlegrounds
Post Limit:
I just started PVP again after a long break since Pandaria expansion. Before I was batting about .500 but since taking up the sport again, it's been a dismal .100.

My question is, is it because of the matching system is putting me in the game with other poorly-geared alliance players where pvp-oriented horde players are just better geared or have our players behind the keyboard declined in quality?

Should I give up now and go back to pve or stick it out with the knowledge that once I've reached a reasonable gear level, the embarrassment stop?
Thanks, Bitaken. I logged with my PVE gear last. This isn't my PVP set, which as I implied is a work in progress. So long as there's hope, I'll keep grinding.

Cheers
Sorry, not trying to start an argument or complain, I honestly want to know if it's worth the effort of grinding the gear. I used to love PVP and like I said, solo queuing I won half of what I entered.
the embarrassment doesn't stop if you're playing wrong, no matter what side you're on.

Follow Bit's instructions. Don't think iv ever lost a bg with him. Friends are key, spec is important and gear means a lot.

Don't forget to hit timeless isle and just run around opening boxes, not sure you'll want to waste gold on viable enchants (depending on your server economy) or gems...just even sticking green gems and cheapo enchants will make a world of difference in comparison to doing nothing. Be sure to reforge no matter what, 6% hit (anything over is silly) then to your spec's proper itemization.

EDIT: lol nvm, i see you're in gear superior to timeless trash =P
I appreciate the pointers. I've done my research and am building the set (I should have logged in it so I don't look like a complete nub). I was really wondering if it's a gear-dependent matching system that's putting me in losing groups and if that would subside when my gear improves. Again, this is verifiable by my achievement stats, I won about half of the BG's slolo queuing prior to this recent experience. Anyway, I'll stick it out and see where it takes me. Thanks for the input!
"I believe if you do either you have deeper issues than can not be solved by any helpful posters in this forum."

Ouch, lol! My issue is of time. My play time is sporadic making it hard to schedule it with others.
All these losers are saying is que up in premade's the Horde is wrecking bg's non stop and blizzard doesn't give a !@#$ cause they all play horde so gg yeah Im quitting again %^-* this game and the stupid !@#$ in it
won my last 8 battlegrounds on my alliance shaman
I'm getting around a 50-60% win rate at the moment..

only thing I can suggest is improve gear, spam IoC and AV till full tyrannical then get into arenas
i have noticed i lose a lot now on alliance, more than before. i am getting over it too. being fully geared doesnt help without a team that wants to try. most people give up very early on and then its a huge loss after that. i would say i win 1 bg out of 10 now, and thats usually the 40man

Thanks, Bitaken. I'll try that addon and keep grinding tyrannical.

Cheers!
