I am gearing 2 new toons in 522 for this season, and OMG I hate being back in the random battleground scene >< It sucks so much in MoP - I had forgotten how bad it is.
The few times my pvp mains have random'd this expansion has been with groups of other geared/skilled pvpers - and then it's the murderfest it always has been when you bring in real pvpers against the bots and keyboard turners. My warrior has 2x 1-hand 536 pve weapons miraculously (coined both on her first run through downfall LFR, because she's lucky like that) - so I'm trying to fury pvp with pve weapons and no pvp power: not pretty.
She's 1 BG win from her 522 weapon now though, so it's almost overrrr
Not sure what people's issues are. There are nights I win 5 of 8 as Horde and nights I win 3 of 8. Tonight's a 1 of 8 night. Shit happens, BG's solo suck.
the only reason u win Av and IOC is bc i have them blacklisted from my random bg que, if not I would beat u in those too!
Everytime I queue with 2 friends, we can carry any 10-15 man bg. Just... use your head and you'll win. On Alliance Eu we get almost instant qeueus and win most bg's, maybe 60% overall. Besides, most good pvp'ers on Alliance don't bother with bg's, only arena, duels, social stuff.
RNG is RNG but it is very frustrating. I remember hitting 50 on SWTOR and I went on a 35 loss streak yet I'd do top damage almost every time.
Honestly I have been seeing more horde botters than anything lately. This week's CTA has been temple of kotmogu and im gearing up my alt ally priest. I checked his total stats for temple and hes 20-3. Most of those are queing with friends but a few solo. I remember one game there were 9 horde literally sitting in mid then en-mass running toward people 1 at a time, we sat all 4 orbs outside the temple near the spawns and won without horde ever even coming at us. Ridiculously funny to watch.
Alliance seem to have a mental age of about 2 half the time. They seem to struggle to press the keyboard. Full Grievous Warrior with 4 Prideful Pieces (<3 Celestials) and didn't receive one heal from the Resto Druid sat behind me whilst a Spriest/Mage slowly killed me and a Prot Paladin. Also the idiot didn't stop them capping whilst running around like a tard. Remember I used to enjoy BGs. Maybe it's because I'm slightly older and I realize how stupid people are.
Ratio for today so far is 1 Win 6 Losses. Decided to call it quits there and do something else. Only win was a 2000-1990 BfG. Lost AV, BfG (3), SSM, AB.
Small sample size. Horde win all non-AV-IoC BGs slightly more often than Alliance, and a bit more than that in the MoP BGs and SotA, but due to the landslide edge in AV/IoC, it's overall fairly even. The issue with the other BGs, is that most horde that do any sort of volume BGs, will have blacklisted AV/IoC.
did a fair few bgs between the pvp seasons to be met with teams full of bots/morons (horde side) to be put up against full teams of russians... that was fun..
Or it would be a case of "who has the least bots wins"

Happens every single time. At one point me and some guildy's managed to snatch docks from alliance... and we still lost because horde dont know how to use bombs, or cap the two seige dmg increasing bases
I plan on gearing my DK solely through heroics. He got Prideful legs and neck from Celestials this week, but I'm interested to see if I can get full gear this weekend (2 days, 8 hours per).
Alliance only win AV and IoC because they're closer to PvE than PvP. Hell, in most AV matches I don't even encounter any PvP, it's basically a race to see who can cap towers and kill boss NPC first.
When it comes to actually PvP, Horde has it dominated.
