    Mercenary mode and the horde

    I just dont get these peoples, hope horde dont wonder why bgs dont pop or ppls leaving when most horde dont use mercenary mode.Instead they just enjoy fap on lvlers and farming them. So just wait ur 1 hour bg queues if that good for you. https://ibb.co/Vv8x1jQ https://ibb.co/7CJhW8G

    I don't think the long queue times are much to do with mercenary mode (hardly anyone has it enabled any more btw, horde or ally) and more to do with declining numbers since the CTA change. I think warmane really hurt the 79 bracket by changing it from a daily to a weekly cta and there has been a steady decline in participation in the bracket since that time.

    It has caused an excess of wsg games and those who are tired of wsg get disappointed that certain players still play wsg only even on other CTA days and this leads to a general feeling of tediousness.

    I think you need to focus on getting ally twinks to just queue the CTA. They are so much in the habit of just queuing wsg and avoiding whatever the CTA is that the battlegrounds get split. SOTA ends up like the screenshot you showed, but how much of that is because allies left SOTA for a wsg pop or just entered wsg at start and declined to enter SOTA?

    You can talk about merc mode, but most people don't really want to enable it, at least permanently. I enable it on occasion when ally are really struggling (and people have got angry with me for this btw) but I don't want to permanently enable it because then I'd be playing alliance 80% of the time and that's just not what I want to be doing.

    In any case I think it's clear that alliance have plenty of twinks, some of them are not playing right now, but plenty are. But there is a culture of leaving bgs (and this starts a cascade effect), dodging the CTA etc which now that the bracket is solo queue vs solo queue we can really see this difference in mindset between the factions.

    Also, just a final point, given you have stated in the past that you don't want to play to win, but just farm kills, why would anyone want to respond to your plea and help you out? People like playing with people who do teamwork.

My friendy: Many players need to live their lives. Social life influences virtual life. Let's be patient with this argument! Hahahahahaha

    Yes I am sure a certain fat male draenei hunter leaves 1 sec before dying every battleground because of pressing IRL issues. Totally explains it.
