Rofl this post of yours is even better than the other one.Gilneas can be considered to counter the AB imbalance. You guys reach WW before us if we have no water walking, just as we reach BS before you if you have no water walking (or a druid with glyphed aquatic form)Mines has a chance at being favoured for horde.AV is favoured to alliance.IoC is favoured to alliance.How is TP favoured to horde? If we happen to have someone with a glider? The map isn't imbalanced, professions are.
To start, i think the alliance advantage in Gilneas is stupid and should be balanced. I have been on the horde starting side for RBG's and there is a distinct ally advantage in that BG.
AB is horde favored b/c of the 'Iron Triangle'. The map layout lets the horde defend BS, farm, and LM by sitting a response team in the crossroads between the 3 nodes. The alliance are unable to use this strategy due to map layout.
AV is horde favored, in both a zerg and a turtle. There is a very in depth thread going on right now that has 3-5 horde posters with screenshots, timestamps, video logs, and lots of proof that show horde actually do have an advantage in zerg'ing. Horde capture SH bunker a good 3-5 secs before alliance can capture IB tower. This means that horde have a ~5 sec advantage in a pure zerg. The reason most horde teams lose AV, is b/c alliance always send 2-4 DK's/Pallies straight to Relief hut and the FW towers. Horde generally send 35 ppl in to kill Balinda. So while alliance are busy rushing to start timers, the horde play follow the leader to attack a boss that can be 3 manned easily.
IoC is in no way alliance favored. Most horde claim the glaives are a huge ally advantage but they can be killed in under 10 secs by any 2 stealth classes. A 5-10 man horde group can kill the glaives even with 25 alliance trying to protect them. There is also nothing stopping the horde from going to Docks instead of their usual zerg BS/LM strat.
TP is very horde favored due to base layout. Horde base has a moat and a very defensible position. Alliance has a huge cliff for horde flag carriers to use while trying to make it back to their teammates.
Posters like you that only care about giving your own faction the biggest advantage possible are one of the major reasons why WoW pvp is considered a joke amongst the gaming community.
