I Pee Vee Peed, lol (WoW post)

Last night was supposed to be guild Kara night. But very few people signed up, and several of them didn't show. Hubby was sick, and I didn't really want to go if my GM wasn't going to go, because he's got that place down to a science, and there are very few bumps in the road getting it done. Instead, he asked if anyone wanted to run Eye of the Storm, which is a battleground where players can fight other players. It's one of four types of battlegrounds that are available. But it was the daily, so he wanted to do that first. We got a few people together, and off we went. The first one.. was a mess, lol. I'd never been there before, so I had no idea what I was doing, other than shooting at anyone with a red name that came near me. We lost by a pretty big margin. The second one though, we dominated. I think at one point we had all of the bases tagged, and people were running flags like crazy. So that finished up the daily quest. After that we ran some Arathi Basin, which is my personal favorite. I only stayed for two runs of that, but we won both of 'em.

I don't PvP very often. Why? Because a lot of the people you run into in bg's are jerks. They go in there with a very elitist attitude, we're here to win, if you can't keep up, you're not worth our time. That happened with our first EoTS group. We didn't have a full group, so a few extra people dropped in from other servers. Like I said, we did terribad, and near the end people were making comments like, "so much for THIS premade". Hey, not everyone is super awesome at PvP, ok? I myself only have one actual piece of PvP gear, and it wasn't something I was going to put on, because I didn't think it would do that much good.

I just don't understand that attitude at all. Yelling at someone is not going to make them try harder, it's going to make them frustrated. BG's can be a hectic place, I understand, but assuming that just because someone is level 70 they've been doing PvP the whole time is stupid. The only time I ever PvP is if I'm bored, or if a group of people that I know is going. Every bg run is different, and that makes it interesting. And people I know are likely to be a lot more forgiving of me when I really don't know what I'm doing.

What about you guys? What do you like or not like about PvP?

Well, im a shadow priest, and i also pvp when im bored, in pve gear, so i die a lot, but i almost always top the kill meter(we priests are all evil), i just stay in the back and pwn, and mc ppl off cliffs. What i wanted to say here is that in bgs like wsg, AB and particularly in eots, small "premades", say 2-3 guys can make a big difference(im alliance so i know about losing bgs /cry). try it at home ppl, small premades and vent are your best friends
