Lol I won on both of my first attempts in LFR PvE gear. Horde-World Problems, right? I feel for you though, took me like 3 years to get those children's week bg achievements.
What's the highest expectation of OP's probability to win a given BG you're willing to accept then? I'll use that to calculate the odds of losing 60 in a row and doubtless still come up with a number that makes his story unbelievable. Bonus points if you strain yourself and actually come up with a reason for your number. Or do you even have one?

Thanks, I think I spend my time quite wisely. Nothing wrong being on a forum talking about a game especially when an upcoming expansion that could be bringing huge changes is coming.
Perhaps you should evaluate your thinking process. It seems a bit off.
A legendary item is supposed to be an exceptional achievement, I think you should be grateful enough to be able to get it on your own. It's also supposed to be a reward for a prolonged effort, so why complaining if it takes a lot?
PvP sucks; it is completely not my thing. PvP is tolerable in a completely preformed group in voice chat - preferably all guilded with me. As a healer, this is the only way to make PvP remotely enjoyable because it is the only way that I can get anyone to employ a "peel".
Armory - Nzete of Korgath-US
Temple of K - 33 of 53
SSMines - 7 of 18
The SSMines victories are all either rated or in a 5 man premade for guild legendary cloak progress.
As I see it, the PvP requirement is to make people cry and quit doing any organized PvP. We used to do guild rated in the first season. Since we have been running into forced bgs for the legendary line, we quit.
Its pretty funny to watch the failtrain. They grind with organised 10man groups weekly the same raid instance for those shitty marks but can't think of making 5man groups to win a battleground. 2 healers and it wouldnt even matter if they played like noobs. Its not that hard to win a bg with 5 people and voice chat. And lets not forget the time they have to waste on the reputation grind yet bgs are the thing so many bitch about.

Crap luck OP, it only took me 10 or so losses for silvershard and only about 5 for the other.
I haven't PvP'd since BC and getting forced into a BG really sucked not because i'm no good at PvP but just because i stopped enjoying that aspect of the game a long time ago.
I remember losing every single EotS and WSG back for a good 2 months back in burning crusade when trying to farm pvp weapons, i feel your pain.

But look at what you wrote: "very few have massively imbalanced win %s". For the sake of this discussion, all it would require would be that they be massively imbalanced for just ONE BG -- SSM. So even your wibbling there doesn't actually support your case.
US and EU stats for a given week. I'd imagine 41k BG's is enough to give a statistical sample. I'm sure if you pull any other stats you'll find similar stuff.
The simple fact that you can even contemplate that ratios could be as uneven as 90/10 just shows how dim-witted some people can be. It's like the last thread where we disagreed on a GC tweet, you are stubborn to the point where it passes common sense even though its plain you are wrong. Here you are wrong, again.
Anyway, the burden of proof is on you to prove anything other than 50/50 since that's the logical assumption. If you don't understand what logical means (and from your posts I'm guessing the word isn't in your vocabulary) then I suggest you look it up.
The cloak is a bitch to get.. still waiting for my valor cap to go away
I'm good at PVP and I'm Horde. I'm most advanced on this quest chain on a toon I do very little PVP on, but now I want to PVP on to get the damn Mushan blood coins mount (my main PVP toon is healer, so....). My problem is the RNGness of the drops. It took months and months to get the sigils. Took little over a week for the 3K valor (didn't know it tallied past the cap) and then the secrets... I'm 16/20, week 1 I got 8, week 2 I got 0 (17 bosses, no lei shen kill) and then got another 8 this week. I'm just happy we can do it in LFR.
I've had several friends ask me to join them for the PVP battles, you might want to try their bonus weekends and/or OQueue/OpenRaid to get a premade.
