Was just in a random eye of the storm BG as Alliance in I think the Nightfall battlegroup (Kel'Thuzad) and of course we get stomped with people fighting in mid like the idiots they are. This is the 3rd day of BGing where I lose back to back to back. I know every side has its wins and losses, but it seems like we lose way more than we win. Now this isn't another "omg alliance sucks wtfbgs" thread, I have a question I want to ask.
I try to pick time frames in which I think more adults (I'm 25) will be playing more than kids/teens. There really doesn't seem to be a time, it's more luck. But anyway, when I'm in BGs like the one I mentioned above, and I see this epic derping going on, I have say to myself, "I refuse to believe adults are this freaking stupid and bad." Sometimes I make a comment in BG chat like, "Oh, the kids must be home from school." Then ofc people rage and say age has nothing to do with it. So finally, my question is, "Do you think it has to be more kids/teens than adults causing the derping in all the BGs?" I ask because as a normal (if there is such a thing), educated adult, I am very aware and knowledgeable in a BG setting. I read chat, I look at my map, I type incomings and try to organize people, etc. In my experience over the years playing WoW, mostly every adult I've met wants to play the game correctly and wants to win. I would think kids/teens just want to blow up scoreboards and beat the shit out of people rather than play constructively. I know, I know, this isn't true of every adult and not every kid/teen is a bad, but in reality, wouldn't you expect more out of adults? If you're an adult, look at yourself and ask yourself if you like to beat the shit out of things on the road or play constructively and "properly" to win? I really do think age matters at the end of the day and I like to think it shows with the terrible BGs I experience for hours on end. And yes, when the time comes, I will join a pvp guild to avoid such messes, but until then, I like to play in BGs as I level, even though 90% of them make me want to tear my eyes out and eat them.
Please no trollful comments or L2p garbage. I think it's a legitimate and interesting question.
