WoW TBC Classic: When will the Horde have short BG wait times again?

September 16, 2021

At the beginning of July, Blizzard had tried something on the Battlegrounds of WoW: Burning Crusade Classic

: For the first time, Horde players were allowed to face off against Horde players in Warsong Gulch and Co. The result: instead of having to wait an hour for a BG match, invites popped up after a few seconds. Even for arena matches, you had to wait longer in some cases. This makes the honor grind a lot more fun!

But the test (and with it the joy) only lasted a few days. For the ID change, the player search was reset to its normal configuration. The waiting times for a Battleground match rose to the old level again, which caused many players to lose their motivation for PvP.

But how did the test go? That's exactly what Blizzard said in the official WoW forum over the weekend. Here are the most important findings:

  • Before the test, there were many players who joined the queue, but ultimately did not participate in a PvP game, perhaps because they left the queue in the meantime due to the long waiting times of over an hour.
  • During testing, the wait times for a Battleground match decreased significantly, and both factions were able to count on a timely invitation.
  • During the test, Blizzard wanted to find out whether the adjustments to the queues also had an effect on PvP in the open world. The result: pretty much half of the PvP deaths counted in the world during the test went to the Alliance and half to the Horde.
  • Also, the win/loss ratios in battlegrounds were 50/50 when Horde met Alliance.
  • There is to be another test. Further analysis will determine what the adjustments will be for the upcoming test.

From our point of view, the test can come sooner rather than later. What do you think?
