I am blaming faction change, cos every side had their afkers, and leavers. But, when i was playing on horde before faction change, aliance had much less afkers. So afkers and leavers was balanced for both sides (true, my opinion for 6 months playing both sides pvp). AV -  Ali side, counts afkers on both hands, horde side - leavers, WSG - much horde players switch side to ali, and this bgs is set up for trully pvp, so this bg is rly for equipped and brained ppl, never saw horde win (10v10) this bg after faction change cos on horde side left unequipped players which have hard to get Honor points for S2, especially marks for equip. EOS - balanced in my opinion.


Balanced .. if you have 6 apples, and your brother have only 4, you give him 1 apple, so both have 5 apples. This is balance. Balance, like ExStaff did, was, hey brother, take how much apples you want. So first brother (6 apples) left win 1 apple and other brother (4 apple) left almost with all apples. That how ExStaff did it for that faction change. This is mistake in my eyes.


But, against charts and race distribution, Aliance 7779 : Horde 10000. So it doesn't help that much. How many of them are active? I can't gues. It could be reversed, active players was almost balanced, and now is unbalanced for horde or ali. And other reason, most guilds focusing on PVE than PVP. PVE on this server is in MASSIVELY BRILLIANT CONDITION.


So, I don't want to vote down the server, give him a few weeks. Maybe it will be better.


Would it be too cocky if i wrote "I told you so."?

TP= players on standby

BGmax= maximum BG duration

R(A/H)= Alliance / Horde balance

Nbg= number of BG's runing

Rpc= rating of parachuters (ppl that close the game when killed 2 times or join with 2 accounts etc.)

QTdes= desired queue time


As you can see QTdes is pretty much leveraged, you should be satisfied with what it was. With small numbers of people playing it is unrealistic to expect the balance should be provided serverside, also ofc parachute rating hurts even with high numbers of TP (the higher it is the less it hurts). 


Let's put some numbers in for WSG to see how many people you need on one side to have QTdes guaranteed less than 1 minute:

BGmax.= 45min (i've seen few longer but let's go with this)

R(A/H) = 3/4 (pretty much exca ratio), lets check for horde, we invert the ratio to 4/3

Nbg = 3 (let's assume there will be 3 games runing simultaneously at peak)

Rpc = 0,3 (let's assume 3 out of 10 will drop out prematurely)

QTdes = 1min (we want no more than 1 min queue if we sign up)


 TPalliance=(45*3)/4(3*0,3*1)= 33,75 +30 playing = 64 people

TPhorde= (45*4)/3(3*0,3*1)= 60 + 30 playing = 90 people


So, for running 3 battlegrounds simultaneously and guarantee queue time of 1 minute you need an astonishing 154 people in wsg when it is maxed out on excalibur , however it never is maxed out, thus you get a spot where missing and might end up in a game 5v5 or similar.

Since many of the factors can't be predicted it is best to turn the picture upside down what blizzard did with battlegroups. However on a private server battlegrounds stay in vanilla atmosphere unless all private servers would link with eachother or a special pool of players would be joining just for the balance. 

There is more or less no other way than to go megalomaniac on it like blizzard went with battlegroups and by doing it even too far they had an opportunity to even sort players per their rank and make as much even groups as possible in early battlegroup stage. 


Doesn't help the situation much probably, still... just my 20% of a dime.

:D correct, this is a very sophisticated statement and a correct decision.

Out of topic though, leaving swp with disasterous raid leader to rather play mh with friends got nothing to do with free faction change or does it?
