Welcome to Bloodlust

I think I should welcome all these new random people who keep popping up in the BLOODLUST Bg’s .Yes you came to us,  not the other way around.

so /wave to the Alliance,  and /mock to the hordies.  I shall  be seeing you all in the BG’s


The Battleground matching systems are changing/having changed and I keep seeing all sorts of weird realms in my Lfg’s and Bg’s. I might get to face off my Horde friends on Jubie’thos after all – Mwhahaha.

What it does mean is  there is  larger variety of  realms represented.  eg there will be one from each realm rather than 2 or three, and considering that I have played/play on 3 realms within the old bloodlust group – it was nice  ( and sometimes not so nice) to run into people from time to time I knew/played with.

Besides doing the cross server premades with QueueQ I have been  doing the odd server based semi premade  WSG’s from our ‘fightclub’ chat channel ( no its not called that,  but it is a fight club of sorts)  and even if we can scrounge up just three or four people  it increases our chances of a win, and it’s good to work with people who know what they are doing.

We went up against a Kaz’garoth  premade last night and won.  There was only 4 of us as a premade group,  but it was enough to keep their better players locked up.  People from our group had been disheartened “Oh noes verses a full premade”   but  we headed them off in the middle and cleaned them up – they didn’t seem to have many healers. We  stopped them from getting to our flag room, and a druid was able to sneak in and grab their flag. As soon as we got the first cap – ” We are winning against a premade  I love Bloodlust!” says one of the guys from the new realms. We won 3/0  It wasn’t easy.  They had organisation,  just that their lack of healers hurt them when we were able to wipe them up quicker.

The one BG we lost last night had , us 4 and had a team of 3 from Nagrand  who decided that they would guard the flag room.  After they had told the BG what to do and we let them lead and they spent the first 5 min bickering amongst themselves  about who of them was supposed to do what.  I suggested that given that we were also a premade, and they couldn’t stop arguing perhaps we could take over.  So they waited for us to work our ‘magic’.  ( while still arguing  with each other)  I got a whisper from one apologising for their behaviour ” the girls are excited  and just want to defend the flag room”  I told him I wished they would stop fighting. 

Well they were nicer to us,  but then they started having a go at the rest of the bg.  We lost, and you would think that it would have been easier to work together.

In general I am finding worse behaviour in the pugs. I am not sure if it’s because you really are part of a bigger group of strangers than before, or even just the general cbf’d attitude in the cata lead up.  There was always the chance of queuing with someone from your realm – now it’s a lot slimmer. You can misbehave even more with no consequences.

    I hope, maybe in a few months, a feature appears, which allows to play with specific player and friends from other realms. Maybe even against and with Americas and Europeans players at the same time.

    See you in Warsong Gulch EU.

      if they become too flexible then realms become irrelevant, and I think they make a bit of money with transfers, and wouldn’t want to make it too easy, the EU/Us thing would probably be too difficult on servers I am not even sure what my ping would be to a EU server from Australia . The best I can get seems to be 180 ms from the US now.

    From the post:

    “In general I am finding worse behaviour in the pugs. I am not sure if it’s because you really are part of a bigger group of strangers than before, or even just the general cbf’d attitude in the cata lead up.”

    This might be part of it, but my suspicion is that varying standards of conduct on the separate servers and battlegroups is also a large factor. Anecdotally, I witnessed a substantial BG/LFD change in cultures when I server changed from Emberstorm (mostly newer, low population, less-progressed servers) to Whirlwind (many original servers, good population size, strong progress). Interestingly, both of these battlegroups were merged for LFD purposes shortly before the big change to all battlegroups and, again, the difference was very much on display. When I looked over people in my groups, usually the weaker players came from familiar server names (groan… Cairne) while the better players tended to be drawn from servers on my new battlegroup.

    The differences in server culture were also on display when LFD was released and we all got to learn that not everybody had the same habits for need vs greed on frozen orbs. My guess is that we will see some homogenization, though I wouldn’t be surprised if — as you suggest — manners are worse because of the increased chance of playing with strangers.

      I hadn’t really considered that yet – some realms are definitly a lot more laid back I guess, and maybe people telling them to follow strats in a bg might come as a shock? I hope though that the quailty gets better though not worse, eg that most of them discover the joys of winning / doing better can be as fun as fracking around.

    Vasburg, The Guild? Challenge feature is in cata. I doubt it would extend to Europe sadly.

    Behaviour seems much the same to me but with such a large amount of games I am sure rng plays its part. Win rates now we are no longer consistently facing bloodlust Horde seem up. I was trying to remember the old channel from tbc a few weeks back, I might have to bug Nota or Gild to see if they know the channel:)
