    So if you haven't already noticed the state of RBGs atm is pretty much a landslide, I'm finding there's no fun or challenge in winning anymore, even vs geared twinks.
    The average WSG 10 man BG recently has been 5+ druids for Horde or Alliance, with the remainder being composed of Mages and/or Warlock. It's pretty consistent with the majority winning team always being 3/4 Druids.

    For someone who mains a Priest and Rogue, how does the community go about balancing out these battlegrounds now? I can't be the only person bothered by 4 minute battlegrounds either winning or losing, it's very boring!
    Is it just the meta now, will it last?

    Well I don’t think there is anyway to balence a bracket since you will never get full cooperation of the community to not abuse something or stack comps. My opinion is try another bracket out. At higher levels you have more ability’s to avoid classes like that and allow you to hold your ground

    Pugs are always gonna be pugs. You can't change that. 29 is pretty much the same shit with fury warriors at the top as well, and from there on out it's pretty much the same. Druids, fury warriors, rshamans and discs. Just gotta take pugs with a grain of salt, and look for some wargames to satisfy the need for "good games".

    Definitely similar but rogues do gain quite a bit at 29 with blind, riposte, hook and ambush.

    Everyone should just come to 39. We have weekly wargames, games are semi-competitive and fun. Last night there were 5+ twins on each side for 4-5 hours straight in bgs.

    There aren't any stupid op classes, fury is pretty oppressive, but can be played around... Nearly every class/spec is playable, and can do good.

    Oh, you mean my opinion? Not sure how to avoid speaking my mind on an open forum. If you have another suggestion for the op instead of derailing his thread?

    im glad u have these views, can you stop deleting my opinions now


    also if u notice, it's only awful players who shout about higher brackets being better and more balanced because they're too stupid to realise that the skill level of their pool of players is so far below the average 19/29 and to a lesser extent 39 that they're able to compete, so they pass it off as 'balanced bracket'

    you never see a player with 90%+ winrate at 19/29 moving up and claiming it's more balanced.

    it's just people who got sick of losing to better players that move up and see closer games vs non twinks.

    don't get deceived.

    I solo queue at 19 with an 80% win rate. I also claim that the higher level brackets are more balanced.

    Interested in knowing why?
    Because they are more balanced.

    you can hit someone for a good 30% of their health at 19 off of an elemental force tick. Or overkill someone with an ammo proc. Higher levels are distinctively more balanced, and you really cant argue that statement.

    The average 19/29 is complete dogshit. that goes for the average player in general. Not to sound egotistical, but its very, very uncommon where I see someone making impressive plays or full use of their toolkit.
    Am I saying 49 or 59 are any better? no, we have Ramstein's (even so, its still more balanced). But to claim that people who play higher level brackets, play them to compensate for lack of skill, is a completely obnoxious statement. Especially when you're referring to 19/29 as "skill"


    Im just going to assume you main 19/29, or have a heavy bias toward them. P.S. its spelt "realize" dum dum

    Anyways, to contribute to the original conversation.. there is no real way to balance out the bracket unless everybody (I mean, everybody) follows a strict set of rules. Removing all enchants would be a good start
