WoW Op/Ed: Why Alliance loses in Battlegrounds

That's what you get for playing a night elf...

In this weeks editorial WoW community manager Byron "Messiah" Mudry looks at something that annoys many Alliance players and makes Horde players rejoice. As he has been drawn into the Player versus Player (PvP) aspect of World of Warcraft (WoW) lately, he has come to see how the differences between the two factions play out. In this editorial, he takes a look at the differences (as he sees them), and how they translate to Horde winning the vast majority of battlegrounds.

In a battleground, winning and losing all comes down to how well you can work together as a team. The two issues listed above come into direct play in a battleground. In a normal battleground (as in not a pre-made) you take 10 - 40 random players and throw them all together with about 2 minutes to plan and work together.
