I'm working on a "real" post for tomorrow. Wanted to get it done this morning, but alas, time continues to be uncooperative. The preview is that it's a response of sorts to Larisa's post on Friday where she basically talked about being "forced out" of her guild for being older. Lot of emotions, and that's probably a poor paraphrase, because no one really forced her out except for herself. In particular, I want to lay down my views on age discrimination in WoW and how I feel like we over-simplify things sometimes. Heavy stuff, I know, but it needs to be said.
Unfortunately, it needs to be said tomorrow since I can't do it properly until tonight (and I don't like putting posts up at night since I think most of us read at work or right after work). As such, I'll leave you with one completely unconnected thought:
Is it just me or has Alliance gotten significantly worse at PvP since I posted that article last week? Seriously, I can't get a win. Period. When I wrote that article, we were still sort of competitive. Sure maybe we only won 1 in 4, but we still won that one. In the last week or so, I can't come up with a win to save my life. Weekends, early nights, late nights... it doesn't seem to matter. TB or BGs. Ugh. Either I've just hit the worst slump of my PvP career, or something is going on that I don't quite understand. How can we be so bad? Why do there seem to be so many afk's and bots? How is it that the Horde seems so well coordinated while we're going the opposite direction?
And don't tell me: "shoulda rolled Horde." I get it, Alliance is notoriously worse at PvP. This goes beyond that though, and I'm not willing to re-roll. I maintain that it isn't fun for ANYONE if there is ZERO competition. It can't be as simple as "Alliance sux," because we've always "sucked" and this is markedly worse.
Anyone else out there notice anything like this?
