    I was excited to gear my mage up for 49s (since he’d been parked at 42 since launch) but was bummed to see the queue times horde side. 30-60 minutes for either BG just about any time I have been on. Found this odd since my Druid was getting 5-10 min queues at 59s.

    Is it just dead alliance side at this bracket or what?

    Most the times it's 10-30 mins or less but it can get longer for whatever reason. Definitely due to lack of alliance.

    Ya it's because almost every game is facerolled by horde. The alliance stop queuing pretty quickly after being farmed. Which sucks for us alliance who want to keep wsging.

    Maybe the wrong place but shout out to the horde today. We lost but it was a fun close game.

    Sounds like any other bracket... 90% horde twinks rolling 20-30% Alliance twink with a bunch of levelers. Clearly the skill cap for them is amazingly high.

    49 qs suck when its not prime time sadly. Usually win as Horde, but the other night the Ally took our supper. Shout out to Kleanse, Kolmin and Holger. Lotta GGs vs them.

    Yeah the queue has really lowered my interest in the bracket. Probably take one of the Ally toons I'm leveling on Thunderfury to 49 to get quick pops in a great bracket.

    You could always start up a budget alliance twink and come enjoy the super short queues but you won't win very much. Hop onto a server with a good twink community and they will usually help you level/gear up. I play pretty often and the longest queues for alliance are usually about 10-15 minutes really early in the morning but everything past noon is almost instant.

    Alliance have definitely moved on to other things because of how awful the games are for us but when you get a couple buddies to group up with you can really change the direction of the game and carry an entire team of levelers. The cool thing is that you see a lot of the same horde so you can get some great duels out of a match when you're team is being farmed at base.

    Ya it's looking like I will take a Gnome Mage to 49s after setting up a 39.

    The ques have picked up a lot on horde side. Prime time in late-afternoon dusk time, into the evening, ques are from 2mins-10 mins.

    Yeah I noticed they have been shorter too. As far as I can tell it's because Ally are stomping the snot out of Horde. I'm fighting three twink Mages every game seems like. We've mustered a few caps here and there, but not much else.

    I began leveling a rogue on Grob alliance, joined Ping Pong Bridage and it seems they have a healthy group of dedicated 49s who have been playing often. Look for us out on the battlefield

    Take your pic, win 90% and wait 45 min each time, or 10% win with 1-2 min queues.
