Why can’t both get 25% ? I understand giving Alliance more of a incentive. But why do horde not also get an incentive to maintain their WarMode. Just seems a little excessive I only do WarMode for the 10% increase in rewards, its very important more now than ever with unlocking minor essences.

Can we seriously address the discrepency between OCE and US, even though we are dumped together? OCE is majority Alliance, and with stuff like this we just get dumpstered even more. Its rare to see horde with warmode on in ALL OCE servers now.

I mean why do you think?r

The point of an incentive is to incentivize. To create movement in the direction that you desire. The goal is to have more alliance participate than are currently participating. That ratio wouldn’t change if both sides had the same incentive.

Because if you’ll come to Mechagon right now as an Alliance player, you’ll be destroyed by the huge number of Horde, if Nazhatar if fine, Mechagon is dominated by the Horde who get all the rares and kill any Alliance players who come close

Clearly you don’t hang around OCE horde flight points enough – you only get to see them for about 10-15 seconds after they land, but they’re there… briefly…

I don’t really care that much but it’s kind of crazy that by just playing Alliance I would be like 15% further into my neck.

There would be a really simple first step to take for balancing the participation with wm on: Stop the bonus at max level. With no incentive besides some achievements, the participation would drop to those that actually WANT to pvp.

so child “a” does his chores and recieves his $10 allowance. Child “B” couldnt care less about the $10, so the solution is to give child “b” $25 while Child “a” still only recieves $10 for the same chores……what a joke!

r
the goal of the parents is for the children to do their chores together (why? because this is a stupid analogy thats why). child B doesnt want to do chores because child A will most likely beat the crap out of child B if he does, so the parents need to give child B more money to incentivize child B to do his chores like child A. maybe child B will use that money to buy protein supplements and get stronger so child B can’t get beat up by child A so badly and they’ll be more physically equal, another goal of the parents (because again this is the dumbest analogy you could possibly come up with)

Just give the Horde 25% extra to play with warmode off….problem solved.

The discrepancy between Horde and Alliance on OCE is only getting worse based on my experience. More and more of the people I used to play with are switching to Alliance, and stuff like this is only going to keep that trend going.

This is beyond messed up, this is no solution at all. In Spanish realms it is impossible to go in warmode ON as a horde player as the population in the warmode phase is based off on 70% or 80% alliance population. What the actual hell is going on in Blizzard’s mind? They stated this would only be applied on those realms in which the unbalance was not good to the alliance side regarding the warmode on, but this hasn’t been the case in our realms. This will just make horde players not go into warmode on as there will be no chance for them to compete against the alliance. They have already introduced a hotfix to adress the problem of Battle of Nazjatar since the unbalance was beyond horrible. r
r
This is NO solution at all to the actual problem. Basically they’re being favoured, not only with an increase in rewards, but also giving them a free heroic-ish ilevel item due to the fact there were more horde players with warmode on. Since this kicked in the live realms, the horde population with warmode on has plummeted, and there’s been an alliance influence since then. And now alliance players are being favoured because horde players are less inclined to activate their warmode so that they might have some kind of a benefit? This is not correct, and this is actually creating more trouble in Spanish realms than what the original problem does.r
r
Does actually Blizzard know about the feeling of being horde and unable to complete quests around the new zones since more than 70% of the population is alliance? Because it sucks to be the whole time in a half grey and white screen due to the fact that there are more than 4 people running and trying to kill you in the spot, but hey, I need that little 10% of the increase on rewards for the reputations, but it’s been a while since most horde people decided to skip it as it was less convenient for them than being dead half of the time.r
r
We’re not even highlighting the issue of favouring alliance players to gain BfA flying almost two days before horde players are able to. Today I’ve seen alliance players already flying around while I’m sitting at 7.5k reputation with both of the new factions, having not skipped a single side quest, world quest or rare than I’ve seen so far.r
r
Great work, Blizzard, keep it that way so that the following week you’ll decide to increase it to 30% since there will even fewer horde players with WM activated in our realms.

so because the alliance like to cry as always they are getting an incentive because they cry for it so now the alliance can all get their rep faster than the rest of the horde because they suck at PVP I think maybe i should just turn my warmode off and keep it off or better yet just let my game time lapse because the current state of this game is trash completely and maybe when the stop catering to the casual cry baby i might actually come back unless i find a better game to play.

You fail to grasp the reason there is a bonus to warmode: the Horde doesn’t need an incentive to maintain warmode, the concept is ludicrous. It’s the Alliance who is unwilling to turn on Warmode because they always lose the Battle for Nazjatar. That, coupled with the fact that there is a PvE-only event in the zone makes Warmode seems like a waste of time for the Alliance, since it doesn’t affect reputation gains. r
r
Without an incentive to the Alliance, the Horde won’t have any more Battles for Nazjatar, as the event won’t activate anymore unless shards are balanced.

Go play alliance right now. Youu2019ll spend longer than a day on world quests running to your body. Still isnu2019t worth the extra harassment as horde can just keep calling their u201cbuddies.u201d

So far, this is only for US realm. If EU realm are more balanced, they won’t get that much of a bonus.

as a horde player I tell everyone who plays in the horde, turn off the war mode.r
We will do this until the same “incentives” are maintained. Allowing them to have superior benefit in order to maintain “equality” is to allow unequal competition.

War mode does not give a reputation bonus.
