The alliance reach our base before we can reach theirs, it's a very basic issue. So they have a 4 cap before we do it's just the way the terrain is designed. The core issue has nothing to do with back capping or defending, it's the terrain.

Sure you'll win more games if you back cap and defend, but there will always be those games that slip through your fingers by one tower or by a few seconds. Those are the result of alliance having a terrain advantage, not to mention the majority of alliance having EMFH human racial for a free pvp trinket while the horde have to buy theirs (seriously who buys a pvp trinket before hitting level cap).


Beep, wrong.

But keep blaming the map for your refusal to recap any towers. IB GY is the best chokepoint on the map, but most Horde are like you and have no clue how to use it.

All of my AV achievements and the majority of my wins were Horde side.

A little defense goes a long way. Recap IBT/TP and you will probably delay the Alliance long enough to win.

only eots is bugged. it shows 0 you need to look at your eots master achieves for how many wins u have.


Ah, thanks!

For some reason I was under the impression it was more far-reaching than just EotS. The rest I can just chalk up to memory, I guess. :>

All I can say is all the times I've won AV we made sure we had plenty of people defending the bunkers so alliance couldn't backcap....all the times we've lost hardly anyone was defending and zerged to van naturally making it easy for alliance to retake bunker.

I've won ~5-7 EotS games on some alt, but it records 0 victories.


eye of the storm is bugged for me also, it says zero wins. When I know that's un true.

I have zero wins for Av, but i KNOW that one is true.

AVs played: 7
AV towers captured or defended: 0

Me.
AVs played: 22 (lol 2 wins. I wish people knew how to play the damned map)
AV towers captured: 13
Defended: just 1.

So what exactly were you doing in your AVs?

Muffindiver's question: what do you when you're in Alterac Valley?

Does this sound about accurate?

Ride to Balinda with 35 other people
Ride north to Stormpike Graveyard, dismount and then walk across the bridge
Stand at the Stormpike Aid Station or in Vanndar Stormpike's bunker yelling 'GO! ALL IN!' despite no bunkers capped

Alterac Valley battles 104
Alterac Valley victories 86

Alterac Valley towers defended 53
Alterac Valley towers captured 14

53 tower defenses in 104 games, you horde just make it too easy. Also stop "defending" the bunkers by standing next to it with your map open.

just did 3 more, still haven't won.

And it doesn't matter WHAT I do, a single person out of 40 isn't going to make that much of a difference. Whether I'm zerging or going for the objectives, it's not going to cause a loss in every single AV i've ever played (and lost)

With a mentality like this, you're never going to win.

A/V battles: 76
A/V wins: 34

There have been times when the loss streak seems to go on forever. And I can agree to some point with some people that the A/V map is a bit lopsided.
I've been running A/V since 2009, and yeah I do feel Horde looses way more then Alliance. Can't say it's my favorite BG, but since I prefer the bigger maps I'm sort of limited.

There's 14. It's a lot isn't it?

Call me crazy but I want to see how many I can lose in a row. The current record I've seen doing these is someone claiming they lost 21 in a row, 22 after we lost that one.

1 person back capping towers will delay the whole 40 people from pulling and killing the boss... Even if they get it back, you slowed the progress of the other team. At the start ask if anyone is going to play D, and follow them work as a team to re cap towers. And even if you dont get the tower back, your keeping people there defending while hopefully other people are attacking the other towers.
