Like most people in this part of the forums, I'm a PvPer. Maybe a bit more casual than some, but nonetheless, a PvPer.
I've noticed that often in battleground people tend to give up when, in my eyes, there's still hope to snatch a victory. And I wonder: Why are people so negative?
Negativity can effect your gameplay. If you're negative, if you're so sure that you'll lose, you won't try as hard and you won't play as well. This may not effect you, but it seems to be general with not only PvP, but other things as well.
And yet, when the Horde controls half the bases in Arathi Basin, when they have 2 flags captured in Warsong Gulch, when all the bunkers and graveyards are taken in Alterac Valley, what do I hear most?
"just let them 5 cap"
"its over let them win"
"let them cap"
And so on. Why do you always look on this negatively? Why don't you, instead of looking it as a loss, don't try to retake one of the bases, backcap some bases and such?
And if you persist on being negative, why do you stay in the battleground? If it's a loss halfway in and you keep complaining about it, why don't you leave and let someone else take your place, someone who might just help us win instead of letting the Horde win?
I mentionned the Horde because I'm not aware of this happenning Horde-side. It could obviously be happenning on both factions, but as a majorally Alliance player, I don't see the other side of things.
