Anyway, it's something of a trend that seems to repeat itself. A few months ago when WPvP was on it's dying limb, at least from my perspective, the fun was taken out because we simply didn't have the numbers to compete with the Horde. Now I'm not trying to say the Horde is purposefully roflstomping us with numbers, or that they don't have the skill to take us in an even fight-- maybe its a server population issue. I don't know the exact numbers, but I've heard it said and it seems apparent from what usually happens in WPvP that the Horde is more populated. So I think what ends up happening is that there's just more people Horde side willing to jump on the chance to prove their side's superiority in WPvP then there are alliance side... which typically ends up in a one sided fight.
Again, not saying the Horde's doing this on purpose, or that the Alliance isn't guilty of doing this too. I can't deny there's a certain excitement that comes with representing your faction in a fight, who doesn't want to be a part of that fun? I think in the end that there's just not enough people that give a rat's !@# Alliance side. I mean, we did have a pretty good Wpvp day at Lakeshire last week, it was one of the few times in recent history where there was actually a decent number of Alliance interested in WPvP.
I think what I'm getting at here is that I'd like to see more WPvP going on, but how do we set that up so that it doesn't end up being a one-sided roflstomp? I think the problem, at least Alliance side, is that most of us just don't give a $%^-. 9/10 times we end up overwhelmed by numbers anyway, so why bother? Maybe it wouldn't be a problem if people didn't give up so easily. But I guess I'm curious as to what people Horde side think on the matter. Are you guys more interested in a fair fight, or is it just more fun to stomp us repeatedly?
I think I'm just nostalgic for the large-scale battles we used to have on this server, they would seem to last hours, with both sides claiming victory. These days, with the exception of pvp in Lakeshire last week, Wpvp skirmishes don't seem to last very long before they become a terribly one sided ordeal.
Again, not accusing the Horde of anything. It's not your fault that you typically have more people interested in wpvp. I'm just curious as to what you all may think would be a way to bring back WPvP so that we can have fun wailing on eachother like we used to during Cata and Wrath...
