Do horde or alliance win more bgs?
But that doesn't mean you'll have over a 50% win ratio. Things such as solo queueing, entering in-progress games, leaving games early, etc will all effect your w/l ratio.
02/02/2013 08:43 AMPosted by Stormspellxaccording to the oq sinx, alliance have like 80% win ratio in av/isle of crap, and horde have a 55-66ish in the other bgs.
I believe MMO Champ had a stat on this a few years ago. Horde won 55% of BGs, but Alliance dominated the 40 man BGs.
55%-45% is still pretty even.
Is there no realm-pop type website that gathers statistics for this purpose?
My personal experience, and the experience of every single horde player I am friends with, is that we can not come close to a 50% win rate.
To test this data, a few months back I created an alliance alt, and hey whadya know, suddenly I am up above 50%
The ratio based on my experiences, and of those who I have conversations with, is that horde win about 35 to 40%, alliance 60 to 65%
That said, these percentages are based on small sample sizes. 50, 100, 500 BGs, etc... AND it spans all levels and brackets, so I would personally like to see some real data based on a larger sample size.
Absent that type of analysis, if you are someone who just wants to run and enjoy BGs casually, my strong advice is to roll Alliance.
All I get are midiot groups, no matter the level bracket, no matter the faction. Makes me almost want to quit PvP all together! Almost!
When I use oQueue, that goes up to about 95%.
I trust the data that says 50%-50%, but that has not been my experience.
Data from OQ
Horde win more BGs overall 57%(horde) to 43%(alliance)
Without AV and IOC which alliance win handily, this number would be far more exaggerated in favor of the horde.
Yeah according to OQ horde wins more, if your statistics are correct i'd say that's very balanced i was expecting something more uneven a 14% difference then again if you have a premade team this should hardly even matter.
If you want to win then have luck and be grouped with geared and skilled players, against ungeared and unskilled baddies.
Fixed that for you.
Doesn't help you much if you're the only one who knows what he's doing in a BG where your whole team is severely outgeared, outskilled, outhealed.
if you get better at objectives and realize where you are best fit to help your team and get there, interrupt/cc/kill healers and prioritze your targets as a dps or learn how to stay alive and heal on your healer. You should win 60%+ of your BGs no matter waht class, spec or faction you are on. Sure you'll have some loong losing streaks but you'll have long winning streaks from time to time as well.
You have to understand that horde have more premades than alliance and 57/43 ratio sounds about right. I'm pretty sure OQueue only tracks BGs where at least one of the teams is an OQueue team (it doesn't track non-OQueue BGs).02/02/2013 03:28 PMPosted by WickedwillYeah according to OQ horde wins more, if your statistics are correct i'd say that's very balanced i was expecting something more uneven a 14% difference then again if you have a premade team this should hardly even matter.
I'd predict that the OQ figure is going to be skewed. Simple reason is horde use it more than alliance. Since it's used to make premades for random battlegrounds, it's not going to have much data on random vs random bgs. Instead it's premade vs premade and premade vs random. If horde are indeed using the addon more, and we assume that a premade vs random heavily favors the premade, then OQ will predict that horde wins more random bgs.Yup
