I would be embarrassed how much worse we cut it as alliance if I wasnt aware for years that - proven through everyone of my friends and anyone else I ever met - that basically everyone seems to prefer horde over alliance.And to this day I still cant understand why. Before upright walking orcs got included I wasnt even able to enjoy a horde alt character as I cant seem to enjoy even a single of their races, capitals or leaders. Besides upright walking orcs and the bloodelven heritage armor (pants version) there is nothing I can enjoy in that faction.Guess its 'cause I prefer the basic white-knight-style. (Not trying to say alliance is the "better"/"more moralic" faction; even though I indeed feel that way, its an unjustified opinion for many reasons)
Obviously it’s because the horde have waaay better racials for pve
The following is just what I think:They whole Alliance is crap talk is nonsense. Not every player is pro or plays 24/7 or even raids. That the horde is done with Mythic way before Alliance only has to do with the dedication that players have towards the content they do.
It all comes down to racials, horde have the best ones by a large margin and when you're competing for mythic progression, every point of damage mattersBesides, once you have op racials in one side the population is already skewed, even if you nerf/buff racials to turn the tables, people will have made friendships and ties with guilds and such, thus being much harder to lure them to faction change.
They should close HoF as soon as 100 guilds enter. Removed
Hopefully Blizzard rethinks this "experiment" next expansion. It really should just be the first 100 or 200 guilds on either faction, not the first 100 for each faction.It's extremely frustrating on smaller realms Alliance side having to wait MONTHS for cross-realm in order to be able to make meaningful progress in Mythic especially when your group can clear Heroic within the first few weeks of it being released.
Just 3 and a half months. Not bad :). I have forgot that mythic cross realm existed.
The fact that it took over a month for the Alliance to get to 100 guilds with Mythic Azshara down is actually part of the main reason why I think we could be seeing the faction barrier become a lot more permeable, if not go away completely, in 9.0. Sure the story for that to happen is in place, but the story has been in place before and it's never actually materialized.This time however it's becoming increasing clear that while the overall faction populations are reasonably balanced, when it comes to serious endgame play the Horde has a major advantage. It doesn't matter if we are talking PvP, Mythic+, or Mythic raiding. And the longer the Horde holds this advantage the bigger it's going to get and the harder it will be to break. Initially more lucrative racials attracted the bleeding edge min/maxers, but at this point so many more people interested in serious endgame play are on Horde side that having access to a larger community is all the advantage needed to attract even more people who are interested in such gameplay.However if the faction barrier were to become permeable at least for the purposes of serious endgame content, then this whole problem evaporates.
The requirement should be changed to 150-200 guilds total, not 100 Horde 100 Alliance. It's ridiculous how much longer it takes Alliance to reach 100, and I say this as an Alliance player. A very sad state of affairs that Alliance has this much of a poor showing, but it's just how it is. Cross-realm Mythic really helps out some guild situations, and holding it hostage for this long just because of faction imbalance in endgame raiding is silly. It's not like it would ruin anything - it still takes well over a month for Horde to hit 100. The world first race and world top 50 or whatever metric you want to use is well over by then. But it took another month on top of that for Alliance to also hit 100. It's unnecessary to wait that long.
Of course Alliance slowing down Cross realm mythic as usual.
Just in time for me to start work on the barge -_-
