New Faction Changes to balance PvP Player base.

Good day Developers, Game Masters, Players of the Alliance and Horde.

As you can see, specially on Horde side the battleground queues are very long, frustrating and creating unpleasant experience for the players(not only the Horde players who are ranking but also the leveling alliance players from lvls 48-60 whom Horde players are forced to gank in order to keep the honor requirements every week). This issue is because the Horde PvP player base is huge compared to Alliance. The queue times for Alliance are instant and they can play basically whenever they want to whereas Horde players have to play 18+ hrs a day just to keep up with other players.

The Faction Change would benefit both sides, the Horde would have way better queue times and the Alliance could level without that many ganking against them.

Proof that alliance play way less battlegrounds than horde: https://kronos3.com/
In the website linked above you can see the Honor that every player on the server reached at the last week. It is very interesting that Horde players having long queues had to get way more honor than Alliance to get the same rewards.

P.S. To all the alliance levelers who Horde ganked (including myself): We are very sorry about the bad experience you had but we are forced to do this to you.

Faction Transfer has multiple flaws & risks


Flaw:
Every Quest, Item, Faction, race ability Needs to be categorized and found reverse of otherwise you will find alliance with Defiler's cloak, riding enemy factions mount, equipped with item only available to enemy faction.

People sending auction stuff back and forth selling it to faction they get the most from.

or people doing a quest once more that they already did getting the rep or item a 2nd time.

there are people who only pvp and those who do both pve & pvp atm faction balance is somewhat even at least very close to 50/50, as close as servers can get that it. Open faction swap and its gonna be very uneven.

Risk:
Too many jump ship and the issue reverses. 180 degree but same issue.
Cut off after X transfer then you seperate guildies & friends.


note:
It is a proven fact alliance play less pvp so the only reasonable solution is .join and horde vs horde etc.

i would gladly trade 1-2 wrong items on 1% of the accounts for a healthy pvp environment

apart from faction change
increased xp reward for limited time for alliance could also work

it all comes down if they want to fix pvp (disturbing the "blizzlike" principles) or stay idle and hope for a miracle

combine horde and aliance standings into single bracket. it will force aliance rankers play more if they will need compete with horde rankers

Long term, wouldn't that just further discourage Alli players from PvP'ing? I mean, the few that PvP would have to try twice as hard to rank as they'd be competing with Horde as well. As I understand it, it's not about making the Alli PvP'ers do more PvP, but rather about getting the ones who don't PvP to do it.

That would never work, Horde has no chance to compete in honor vs alliance, if Alliance are having instant queues and Horde having 30min-1hr queues.

I would love to see Horde vs Horde, it would solve many problems we currently have and reduce ganking by a lot.
