"The basic idea is that players will be able to use the service to
transform an existing character into a roughly equivalent character of
the opposing faction on the same realm," Blizzard wrote. "There's still
much work to do and many details to iron out." horde leveling guide

Just wanted to remark on the BG argument. The faction that will win in any BG is the one that has less people in it saying they never win because they have too many kids or noobs. I for one play Alliance and will always play Alliance. I have won and loss my share of BG's over the course of time. If you really are bent on winning then gather up some friends and go kill the Horde or take your chances of ending up with a bunch of kids or noobs. Either way the argument that one faction is dominant is stupid. Both factions seem to be balanced on each real that I play on. Most of the people complaing generally are the ones you don't want to run a BG with anyway.

I've played both sides myself, played Alliance for 3+ years and just recently got a Horde to level 80.  I have to tell you that it may SEEM like Alliance is full of a bunch of babies that whine all the time and the Horde wins all the time....but after switching and seeing the other side of things....it aint much different.

I've leveled four toons to 80 now, I've gotten pretty proficient at it(not great though), I still haven't gotten one of them to 80 in one day....more like 7-9 days of /played time. So please share with me how you get a toon to max level in one day.<----sarcasm

It more likely means you cant expect to have the same stuff when you transfer. There are some items/mounts/pets that are only avaliable to either horde or alliance.  Like you wouldn't want a former Blood Elf paladin turned human to be riding around on a Thalassian Charger.

"How do people play this stupid game? "

umm.. maybe because its the staple every other game is molded around?

you may be right right that EQ2 has 24 classes but your forgetting that it is actually 4 classes just repeated, and why would i even want to do a betrayal quest for a game (EQ2) were all you do is mash buttons and zerg?

avatar

Spider-Mom

Wow, what a great idea. At least it was when it was new several years ago when EQ2 did the same but with TWEENTY FOUR classes intead of the paltry sum you get with WoW.

Lord knows WoW needs a feature like this, since spending ONE DAY to get a max level toon on the other side is such a chore rite?

 

How do people play this stupid game?

You seem to be sadly misinformed on the WoW experience. Why don't you get a 10 day trial account and tell us all how fast you got to max level.

 You say "ONE DAY" ... for a max char... ? Quit making comments about things you don't understand.

 The new BG Merges suck btw.

I've played both sides. After 4+ years I finally just left both and moved on to a game without a bazillion 12 year olds telling Chuck Norris jokes. (New game name left out to prevent a flame war!)

haha. I play LOTRO, it is discounted at 9.99$ till today (june 30th). I just began but, at that price, get the trial first then buy the game and you get 40 days of free play, that's a lot for 10$ nowadays. (yes if you buy the game the same day you get the trial you still get to play the 10 free days).

I've been playing Lotro since beta in 2007 and still play almost every day. It is a great game with mature players and beautiful graphics. According the recent news the subscription base is also growing steadily. Price isn't bad either, especially when they offer Lifer subscriptions to avoid monthly fee's completely.

That's the game I'm playing that I left out of my post. I love it. Mature community. Great eye candy. Decent gameplay (so far).

Does this mean the alliance might win a battle ground other than wintergrasp now? Doubtfull... My guess is it will make alliance even worse ;; I'm not sure what it is, something in the mindset perhaps. But inexperienced players, immature players, and extremely casual players seem to gravitate towards alliance. And hardcore 16 hour a day methodical types gravitate towards horde. I dont see this changing things, except maybe the people that chose alliance switching to horde to get away from the stigma. However, all of my friends are alliance, therefore I must suffer away and not enter battlegrounds for fear that I might blow my brains out if I have to watch alliance get crushed while they argue about why they suck one more time.

sometimes it would be nice if you could just get the facts right

everyone knows it is hord that sucks in pvp we have all the young and dumb nubs, couldn't win a match  if alli didn't show up

flaming caps telling each other how they suck

 

glad to hear that alli has the same problems we have

I have both a max level horde and a max level ally on the same server... and both sides complain about the same thing. "Blizz makes it easy for horde.."  "Ally is so overpowered in this Battlegroup"  That type of crap.
