Free faction transfers worked during the first Burning Crusade release. No reason to think they wouldn't now. This change is unnecessary.
but why horde should transfer to alliance they are %^&*^^
Blizzard might as well delete the alliance faction. This is utterly !@#$%ic... If you are on a pvp server as alliance, then you either need to xfer or just quit the game.
This change is amazing!
BEST IDEA BLIZZARD HAVE HAD SINCE BRINGING BACK TBC! As a semi-solo PVP dedicated Horde player I was considering quitting wow again following 1-2hour queues to enter a BG which has the potential of being a 2 min loss due to pre-made, this was truly unacceptable. It was next to impossible to compete with Alliance players in arena who had already maxed out PVP gear due to instant queues. This new feature has truly brought my motivation back to continue to play and enjoy the greatest expansion of all. Please make this new feature go live ASAP. It is the only way to balance the unacceptable 1-2hour queue times. Please Blizzard do not ruin this wonderful rejuvenating feature by dropping a teaser and failing to capitalise!
This change is so good. As a Horde player who doesn't have much time outside of work, I can finally get PvP gear. I really hope that this stays. This change alone stopped my friend from quitting TBCC.
cater to them horde bucks... 14 years ago we just changed factions and rolled ally. but then again we where not all a bunch of sniveling children about racials.
When they release the LFD ur dd warrios wont insta have groups there will still be other dd warrios getting the tool.... i know i takes 2 digit iq to understand but yeah its reality lmao
Can we please have faction transfers now? I would love to change to Horde.
And some of you actually had the audacity to suggest that the slippery slope isn't a real thing. Lol. SMH.
UNJUST/SHAMELESS COMPLAINTS FROM ALLIANCE, NO UNFAIR ADVANTAGE FOR HORDE, SEPARATE PREMADE QUEUES!Many complaints from Alliance players, hmm interesting. The funny thing is that this update has no affect on Alliance and changes nothing. If the update was not posted online, Alliance would have no clue! why? because nothing has changed for them - they still have their instant queues, they still have to face the so called "OP" horde racials.... ridiculous comments considering the human racials... and yet they complain that a fix for broken horde queues has been introduced. Besides, honestly who cares about racials, it is barely an advantage, PVP comes down to skill otherwise we would all be playing PVE, raiding and carrying out brain numbing grinds rather than getting stuck in bgs/arena. As a matter of fact, horde now has to face horde, no one is complaining about coming up against these "OP" horde racials from a horde POV - perhaps that is because no one cares, we are here to have fun in PVP without having to queue for 2 hours and then lose in 2mins against an Alliance premade. GREAT SOLUTION. THE NEXT PROBLEM WHICH REQUIRES A SOLUTION SHOULD BE; Separate queues for premades - Lets face it, most of us are lone wolfs and either do not have the time to play with others, or our servers simply do not support PVP guilds/premade groups. This is the true problem now that the 2hours queues have been resolved. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK BLIZZARD
I think ally caused a problem by themselves, so many twinks runing low level brackets to farm honor instead of going lvl 70, its funny, this is by far the most coward way of farming honor lol, what a bunch of #$%s...
All we wanted was faction transfer. My arena partner and I are already level 50 on an alliance re-roll after abandoning our horde 70's. Very glad we'll be on the side that won't notice this immersion-breaking change to CLASSIC.
And when WOTLK classic comes out all the PVPers will reroll human for the racial trinket which should balance it out a bit more but the rest of TBCC is going to be horde-dominated for sure.
