Battlegroups sucking

Battlegrounds
I hate being that guy that is complaining about loosing in bg's but anybody in my battlegroup will say that alliance wins 85% of the time. I don't know what happened, but since the last season of cataclysm the horde win ratio has plummeted. From what i have seen from website and other forums is that some battlegroups are more horde favored. I'm sure you have the stats on battlegroups and you can see the win loss ratios. So why can't you guys switch up the battlegroups a little and make things more even... its going to take me a year to gear up at this rate, and i'll probably stop playing b/c it isn't fun. Please tell me if i'm wrong...
Pretty sure you're in my battlegroup, and I've won more than 50% bgs, still winning more than 50%, so IDK what to tell you.
Im looking at your stats and it looks like you're winning more than 50% too. Maybe you just remember the losses more than the wins?
i won 1 our of 8 today, and that's usually how it goes. Are you playing with a bunch of friends? i'm talking about queing by yourself
1 other guildie at times, maybe 2. Mostly solo que though. Really, we have our bad days, but then we have our really good days :) I find when I solo que, there's a lot more alliance small premades than horde.
Battlegroups don't exist for BGs anymore.
For me it just all depends what bg i get.

If I get isle of conquest, alterac valley and often temple of kogmutu, its always a loss.
Battlegroups are almost meaningless... my mage was on Staghelm (supposedly ally dominated) and I won 45-50% of my BGs (solo queueing). Time of day matters (I win a lot more when the kids are in school, not joking) & running with a COMPETENT 5 man makes a huge difference.

Do you hate being the guy that queues into a BG wearing quest greens/bad dungeon blues then whine about other people sucking?

Fix your gear, please.
I'm not complaining about getting 2 shotted.... i'm saying our battlegroup sucks! we always lose. even in big bg's were a single person doesn't really make a difference. It has been that way for a long time. second of all if i won nearly as much as the alliance, i would be completely decked out in pvp gear right now. Don't make this post be about something its not, Learn to read...

This is what I have heard also and yet I keep seeing posts a out battlegroups. What's the real deal?
You can't seriously say that your BG are unbalanced simply because you had a bad day of teams... is that SERIOUSLY what is going on here?

I'm on an RP server.. 90% of our Battle groups and compost of PVP realms that do this !@#$ in their sleep.. yet i STILL manage to solo win half the games i'm in..

When you get put into a game with 12 ele shammy's being multiboxed to one guy and auto following casting chain lighting at anything that moves, then you can post again, until then, quit your %^-*!ing and spend 15 minutes doing BG's after doing nothing but PVE up until cross realm, and now you can't even do your god damn dailies because some @#$%^-* horde is set pvp while standing on the quest giver so when you click to get the quest you auto attack and get ganked before you even know what the hell just happned.
I thought since cataclysm they got rid of battlegroups but according to websites they still exist. Yes, i would like to know this too.

Battlegroups still exist, but they're not exclusive. When you random queue, it will seek to match you first with people from your own battlegroup. If it cannot, then it will throw you in with other battlegroups or pull people from other battlegroups into yours. So battlegroups still exist, and you'll often get into a BG that is made up of all or mostly your own battlegroup, but that will not always be the case.
I have found that no matter what battlegroup you are in the active PvP servers (i.e. for alliance darkspear, sargeras, tich, etc) will always be well represented. Yes they exist but it honestly doesn't make a whole lot of difference.
seriously, this is ridiculous! how the hell am i supposed to get gear up if i lose every game i'm in. Please for the love of god change something blizzard. I've played 20 battlegrounds and won 3. this is a problem...There is no way other horde don't have this problem
