    Why does Alliance always lose?

    I'm not trying to QQ I love Alliance and I really don't want to switch to horde. I have a PvP character and I recently got back into WoW late season... and I haven't had a loss streak this bad before. I have done twelve BGs and we have been steam rolled each time, except for once which was a really close one, but we still lost.

    Sorry I'm just generally curious, have most players who enjoy PvP moved to horde? I just want to catch up and get better gear so I can hit some arenas before the next expansion comes out and it hasn't been a pleasant experience. :P

    I would switch to horde they are buffing Hordes racials and nerfing alliances while giving alliance crap story compared to the hordes.
    You must be a racist if you don't agree with me.

    I've heard the exact opposite mate.

    See all the horde say that they lose all the BGs it really depends on your luck.

    Originally, alliance lost AB and WSG but destroyed AV (more like a raid than a bg). Most pvp players went horde for the overall feel (and racials). This seemed to carry as far as wrath, which is where I stopped doing pvp with any regularity. I would assume it's still the same. most people interested in pvp are attracted to the horde for the culture.
    Sometimes 'Merica happens, and you just have to deal with that.

    they're balancing the racials to make them less of an impact when choosing which faction you play. Besides, I wouldn't say we always lose. Both sides have had losses from one point of another.
    Normally at Heirloom levels the alliance win the Bgs whereas at higher levels the horde win, at least that's what happens for me, not sure why. We also almost always win Alterac valley and we're pretty good on Call to Arms weekends, except WSG.

    Random BGs are random. At the top end, most are alliance because of the Human racial, for PvP.

    Also, Horde generally lose, especially AV, obv

    They don't. It's your own personally skewed human perception. That's not an insult - we all feel that way. Real ratios are about 50/50, though some specific battlegrounds have a higher ratio than others.

    Your battlegroup might play a big part in that too. I was in a very horde heavy battlegroup so they had a much bigger pool to draw from. That had the side effect of diluting the good players at times tho. You never really remember most wins or losses but you'll always remember wining WSG in less that 3 minutes because nobody on the horde side would leave the middle.

    That's not true of top end. Top end players are still horde, they don't need the human racial as a crutch. Average pvpers tend to be Human.
    If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

    I always thought its funny how people say "Alliance sucks we lose all the time" and then i log on my horde toon and hear "Horde sucks we lose all the time"... Win loss ratios around 50/50 for most BGs. If you are loosing all of your BGs then maybe just MAYBE you responsible for those losses more than you think.

    The Alliance doesn't always lose so the better question is:

    Why do you always lose?

    They do lose more

    PVE Heroes i believe.

    Once someone actually asked me "Maybe its you" Yet when i'm on healer i am double the healing of any other player/damage or holding the orb for 150 points in the corner. 70% speed + HoF geddaway son

    Half the BGS i get people doing 1-2 million damage tops or....

    they don't understand the battleground.
    Why are Dungeons and Scenarios mash-fests that take less time than the actual queue or wait list? What a waste of content design...

    I guess having PvP gear from 5.1 doesn't help. I have done almost 1000 arenas and won a little over half so I have some perception of what I'm doing.
