Diablo II's Anniversary

Saviors of Uldum! New Hearthstone expansion releases on August 6th!

"Battle for Nazjatar" Changes Made
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
We’ve heard your feedback (and experienced it ourselves) – there can be lopsided faction representation during the “Battle for Nazjatar” event. We’ve seen cases where only one faction is represented.

To address this, we’ve now changed it via hotfix so the “Battle for Nazjatar” will only become active when Nazjatar has a good mix of both Horde and Alliance players in War Mode. When that is not the case, an alternative event will become active called “Azshara’s Elite Commanders.” This is also available to players who are not in War Mode, and it also awards Nazjatar Battle Commendations for slaying Elite commanders during the event.

We’re continuing to monitor and investigate reports of server lag during the event, and we’re acting on feedback about significantly imbalanced areas. We’ll let you know as we make further changes.

Thank you for your patience and continued feedback!

    Thank the lord. OCE has literally been deserted for horde when battle pops.

    Would prefer to have some actual world PVP but not losing rewards is still good.

    Kinda a crap fix as some one who actually wants to PvP, you’d think the shards would be balanced even if they had to pull from even more Servers.

    Another bandaid solution what a joke like the whole expansion. Maybe try to fix the actual problem which is the servers population and terrible sharding system.

    That's actually hilarious.

    Awesome, they are penalizing people because of their poor sharding. Now the people on these servers will have to try our routes to get conquest. Great job blizz.

    Balance this situation:

    15,000 horde with WM on for event.

    3,000 Alliance on for WM on for event.

    Yeah it's not really possible. Especially when whole groups can server hop into a winning server which just makes it snowball even more.

    I don’t understand the issue. “War” mode....war ain’t fair. If you want to win, don’t be alliance.

    Group the 3000 alliance with 3000 horde. Stop any shard hoping and limit the number of horse to the number of alliance.

    The other 12 can suck it.

    The fault is ENTIRELY on the Alliance's end; if they want to win, they need to get the hell on and stop being such utter carebears.

    That IS the issue though. Everyone who wants to win at PvP switched to Horde, so now they have nothing to play against.

    I'm regularly seeing shards without any Horde when playing my Alliance characters. My Horde friends regularly see shards without any Alliance. There's definitely an issue with the sharding here more than faction balance alone.

    It's kinda funny to me to see the PVPers cry about imbalance when they are the ones who actively server transferred to an imbalanced server in their favor. Everyone games the system to get to where they can be on the team that for sure doesn't have less players, but since everyone is doing it there's no PVP because everyone transferred or sharded into their own faction bubble.

    So when all the Horde players transferred or hopped to Horde servers & shards, and all the Alliance players transferred or hopped to Alliance servers & shards, what do you suppose Blizzard can do about that?

    Take their money and then ban them? Everything else hasn't worked. Why not?

    I blame them when they act like they deserve a reward for even entertaining the thought of turning war mode on in addition to whining about imbalanced populations, yes.

    Nice job blizz. Horde was again punished for participation in your game.
