And what of the players who thought the exact same thing because they could not EVER win a WG and run VoA? Their sentiment just isn't as valid as yours I guess.
I never said that those in an underpopulated faction didn't have a valid concern. Don't put words in my mouth.
At least under the old system, the majority of players who wanted to participate could. It certainly was not a perfect system, especially for those in the underpopulated faction, but at least people got to play. And on my server, at least, Alliance still won sometimes, so they weren't completely shut out of VOA.
Under this new system, the majority of Horde on my server who want to play will no longer be able to. THIS IS BAD DESIGN. In trying to solve one problem, Blizzard has created a new, probably bigger one.
And as I said, Blizzard better not expect me to spend money to work around a problem that they have created. And further, if they don't do something to solve the problem themselves, they should not be surprised when people like me get fed up and quit the game.
