    I am not even complaining about the alliance premades, even if there are constantly 2 ally premades running, I could still get lucky and dodge them some games but almost every single game I was in, alliance simply had more twinks than horde did.

    you know what they say, if you cannot beat them, join them, but i cannot simply abandon my guildies and friends, and i was really hoping that someone could tell me that the pendulum swings both ways and horde will probably dominate soon.

    The pendulum absolutely swings both ways lol. Exclusively an alliance player and I am fucking SICK of queueing into horde teams with 8+ hunters twinking and debuffing. The faction balance depends on the day and time. It's the same as it was in BFA.

    This, it absolutely goes both ways, and half the time one side is queuing a premade to counter another premade and they unfortunately don't get the same games (which sucks). I've noticed horde to mainly be the ones queueing the FOTM specs constantly while ally at least tries to play other less broken stuff. Even pugs on horde side are mostly hunters.

    sucks when you're on the losing end but both sides are at fault. Just depends on the night.

    @glancealot you realize that your post is focused on a small number matches that you have played. I can 100% agree with @ohti that it truly depends on the time of day. Horde has plenty of twinks and premades running, sadly I’m pretty sure not at the same time you are probably playing/queuing. In regards to FOTM hunters vs Other classes I would bet on a premade (alliance or horde) with other classes even vs 4 to 5 hunters. 2 healers in a premade IMO can out play and beat any hunters. Also, I’m a data person so I have plenty of receipts (screenshots) of destroying alliance lol @glancealot you might have to make some new friends on horde LOL because I’ve never seen you on or in a BG. Just saying

    This — my own personal experience as strictly an Alliance player has been my teams having 1-3 hunters total while Horde has had MANY games where 50+% are fucking MM Hunters derping Aimed Shot and keyboard turning.

    I have played about 400-500 games since pre patch and I think I have run into round 20-30 premades across all games. I tend to que into stunsally's group a lot though which is kinda weird, must be a time of day thing. As for the whole horde only plays fotm I have seen a lot of enh shamans on horde. Although it does feel like when I get an invite to a group we are almost always heavy on hunters now that I think about it.

    I play both sides mostly in hopes that we can get wargames going and I can fill slots if either side needs.....

    Here, I aDRESSED it :^)

    Jokes aside, yeah it swings both ways as others have already pointed out. Like 2 days ago or so I faced a horde premade which composition had 5 Warriors debuffing for a quick example.

    I hear horde can be pretty toxic.
    Barely a moment someone isn't helping someone else in my guild.
    Maybe that's the problem.

    Some of the team compositions I’ve run into has made me want to stop playing my beloved Hunter. I do feel sorry at times being in a bg with like 4 or 5 other Huntards on my team. But same goes for Horde who quite often stack Huntards.
    I’ve been in bg’s where u can very easily take an Aimed Shot simultaneously in each orifice........:eek:
    Hunters are prob the biggest culprit. If we want to do something about it, all them Surv Huntards need to put away their big ilvl 44 sticks, or the gf’d ilvl 49 bows them Mark’s Huntards use and turn it down a notch.
    I’m doing my bit for the community, though I know I usually play different times to the majority. My Hunter is likely to be a Garrison hero this XPac.
    A DK will rise up soon and crack some serious Horde skulls.....:p

    Na, I still see him on his 60 a lot. In terms of twinks... his main hasn't done much other than re-level to 20 from what I've seen.

    I really am not sure what the issue is. Do you not have characters on both sides? If your guildies and friends play level 20 bgs with you, do they not have characters on both sides? How come??? I thought this is the basics of twinking.

    Just in case, I am on EU where level 20 bgs are supposedly dominated by the Alliance even harder than on the US. However, even on EU, on a random day, I met two Horde premades. (Yes, the Alliance lost both times. I didn't mind.) But the real solution is simply to have characters on both sides.
