    Time for same faction BGs.

    Waiting 10-15 minutes in random BG queue as Horde is getting extremely old.

    Getting instant queues as Alliance and losing 95% of BGs is getting extremely old too.

    Just allow horde vs alliance, horde vs horde, and alliance vs alliance BGs like rated and be done with it.

    Pvpers don't care about lore anyway. We just want to play and have a fair shot at winning.

    And considering, based on the story, we're currently in an uneasy alliance, 'bonding' with the opposing faction in PvP certainly wouldn't hurt things.

    I feel exactly the same.
    This also could help with the win/lose ratio.

    They do it for RBGS so why not regulars?

    It only makes sense...

    I don't pvp often but are War Games set up to do same faction battles?

    I dont see why not. Then again, I dont see why theres such a wait for horde and insta-queues for ally. It didnt seem that unbalanced before patch.
    Is the horde to ally pvp ratio that unbalanced?

    Well, all I know, is yes, on horde, 10 to 15 min ques. On alliance, less than a minute if that. I win a lot more on horde lately, almost 73% win rate now since I blacklisted the crap ones for horde. Alliance win rate, not so much, closer to 50% to 45%, horde wins a lot more maps now from what I have seen in the bgs.

    Yes, I agree. Horde vs. Horde, etc..

    Only way to make it work is that you see the other players Caverns of Time style. It'll take a few months for the Horde to stop shouting "FOR THE HORDE" while stealing their own flag and taking it to the Night Elf base, but sure.

    If this is part of a greater plan to get rid of the two factions entirely I'm all for it :P
    Are you my mommy?

    Lore-wise, you're playing the wrong game if that's what you want.

    Would like to see this happening to be honest, would do good not for only end-level pvp, but twink brackets too (which I personally care for)

    Here is a hoping it'll happen, don't really see a drawback for it, only benefits...

    For PvP, yes. Favoring the Horde at least in numbers.

    There's either too few or too many Horde queuing for BGs, if these subjective numbers are true for the majority.

    Civil wars sound like a nice change of pace. Sure why not. But they will have to kill the ability to communicate between each other to avoid griefing and such.

    Just do it as RBGs, nothing else. Simply as that.
    Queues for both factions will drop to almost instant ones.

    You can't communicate with the other team in rateds even if you are from the same faction. It would work similar to that.

    Exactly. There's no reason to wait 15 min to play a BG. It's ridiculous right now.

    The only incentive right now to queue as Alliance is for the instant queues, and you want to take that away too?

    You would retain your instant queue, only your win rate would go up. What is your problem here?

    You would fight other alliance teams as alliance too.

    I'm sorry but I think the current system is shit. Either you play horde and wait 15 min to win, or you play ally and lose. This is flawed for both factions. I'm honestly surprised Blizz (a billion dollar company) can't balance this shit when the solution is so simple. Lore be damned. PvPers aren't playing for the fucking lore anyway.

    No thank you.

    If it bothers you that much you are welcome to que rated bgs via Oqueue. You don't speak for the majority, and you certainly don't speak for me.
