Good that quest is gone, it really only made alliance gank fp/wq in a raid group, i hope it never comes back.
Open the whine bottle boyz!
The problem wasn't the quest but how it was distributed to become an incetive to only one faction, making one feel privilegied while the other not... I mean, hell, I killed more alliance player in Dazar'alor port this week than in any other capital on other expansion; and you get more or less nothing for doing so. Both faction should have the quest, with only a slight difference of ilvl in the loot depending on the faction who got the upper hand for the "loosing side" as a "catch-up mechanic / incentive". Both faction should feel rewarded to kill the other one.
It’s really funny all the horde players in the comment section crying about alliance ganking and getting free loot, when horde has been doing the exact same type of ganking for 10 years and they got the first war front with no Ilvl requirement, allowing them to gear up while going afk.Horde ganks WM and Ally complains? Horde answers “Turn off WM or git gud”. They give ally some good things for once and they return the favor and start ganking? There goes the horde machine crying because they didn’t get it and are getting ganked. Both factions are equally full of crybabies, but horde are hypocrites if they can’t see they are receiving their just desserts for what we have been doing for 10 years.
It'll be interesting to see how it turns out on EU-servers tomorrow. Is there somewhere one can track this besides the WarMode enlisted buff showing up?I am waiting for heirloom upgrades in 8.1.5 before I'll bother lvling alts tho.Oh and btw a big thanks to all hordies I met in the fields of Stormsong Valley during assault! They all just fell over dead immidiately to give me FREE gear...(!)Jokes aside, it was a waging battle and a fun experience :) I will probably go at it again in the coming weeks, with or without the specific quest.
I'm sorry for everyone that has been camped at flight paths and had their questgivers killed, it's never fun and it's exceedingly annoying. But I am heartily tired of hearing that Horde is the main perpetrator of this. I've been playing on an Alliance dominated server for 12 years and Allies were guilty of ganking far more than the Horde. Now that there's warmode and we have sharded realms or whatever it's called, I understand that things are different. I just want people to realize, before making these sweeping statements, that not every realm is/was Horde dominated and not every one had packs of Horde running around killing people. Alliance were just as guilty of the same thing on realms where they were more prevalent than Horde. Again, I clarify that things are different now that there's warmode but just remember - warmode is a choice. You can always turn it off if you don't like how things are working out. Heirloom gear will be upgradeable soon and that'll make leveling fast again. Yes, I know plenty of people will come back at me with 'unfair, shouldn't have to turn it off, etc etc', but honestly, this is the first expansion it has ever existed in, I'm sorry it hasn't worked out for you, hopefully Blizz will have it all worked out by the next expansion.
Great move. Those alliance players were exploiting this system by turning on their WM for few hours, ganked some flight paths or leveled up some alts then keep the WM off for the rest of the week. Thus giving them WM bonus again on the next week.The correct solution would be: Once you turn on WM, you wont be able to turn it off until next reset. If you enlist for the PVP then you have to engage in PVP. You alliances call for peace when it suits you best, but you're easy enough to kill.
And no more war mode for me.
Alliances LUL RemovedThey gotta have 30% and free 400ilvl (Heroic BoD) gear to even put WM on.Then they're complaining the blizz reduced this significant advantage over the horde even though it is still more than horde has.You will never be as strong as Horde is. Removed
how about europe we drowining here by hordes how about us.wolrd not limited by usa.
Damn, my plan of getting Conquest from Assault WQ might be gone. I don't plan to a lone Alliance in a world of Bloodthirsty Horde.
Nah, it's the other way around. For the first time since the dawn of this game, the Horde got to feel what it is to be outnumbered, and they immediately started crying.THIS^
alliance got a 400ilvl piece at the start of the new raid, horde got a 370 at the start of the last raid. Whats you point?
All the Horde players talking about how Alliance are whiny babies are pathetic. I play both sides but main Horde and we had the 10% bonus for months completely uncontested, and we still do really. I've never had to worry about dying in war mode on my Horde characters. I don't really care if the Alliance gets a piece of gear that will be replaced in a couple months and a little extra gold/resources.
