Its a rarity. Yesterday's epicness proved that.
So on Saturday afternoon I just happened to be flying in Nagrand for ore and the Children's Week quest when the Local Defense channel started screaming that Halaa was being attacked. So instinctively i flew to Halaa to investigate. Sure enough, there were 3 Alliance players attacking guards and a fellow Hordie who later turned out to be a friend of said Alliance players. What followed next was a good hour and a half of back and forth between myself a holy pally named Holylit, and about 7 Alliance players all from Thralls Bane. Eventually they got smart and got a heals for themselves, but I thought it was a good fight. Its been far too long since I had done anything pvp-wise outside TB and random bgs.
Thank you Thralls Bane, holylit and the little wee goblin whose name i forget. I might have sounded tough and angry afterwards, and I apologize for the angry part; but I had fun nonetheless. Oh, and ty for the 22 Halaa battle tokens I got from ya as well.
I hope to see more of this situation pop up in the future and all. We may be a dead server to some, but we all can make it epic when we want too.
I've been noticing a bit more world pvp now.
Some Alliance will get together and attack the gates of Orgrimmar, or after a TB they'll stick around and we'll fight for a bit.
Of course, them being Alliance, they only really attack when they have the advantage and run away when they don't, but that's not the point. The point is that world pvp seems to be coming back and I'll gladly take it b/c it's fun as hell.
I remember way back when crossroads would be under attack and we would rally some Horde to go defend it. It's a little harder to do that now though, so keep it up Alliance. Hopefully, this'll spark a fire under the Horde's butt to get back into pvping.

If anyone knows of a pvp realm that's reasonably balanced alliance/horde populations, and where world PvP like the above is a fairly typical activity, please share the realm name. I'm itcthin to get back on a realm where world-PvP is a common occurrance.
