The Battle for Ratchet

Last night I helped one of Analar's alts make the run to Booty Bay. Then we caught the boat to Ratchet so he could grab that flight path. When we arrived in Ratchet he decided it would be fun to kill one of the Horde NPC's.

Just as soon as he did this I looked around. "Uh oh," I thought. "He's going to get ganked for sure."

Yep. About a minute later a level 70 horde Shaman decided it would be fun to kill a level 20 rogue. I don't know why, because it's out of character for me, but I decided to exact revenge.

So I popped my treants, shifted to Boomkin, rooted the Shaman and moonfire spammed him. About a minute later he was dead. I don't think he was expecting three trees pounding him :)

Of course he came back. By this time a level 42 Nelf hunter had joined me. We pwned the shaman 5 more times before he called a friend.

Then they spent the next 15 minutes pwning us :(

Then we added three friends and we spent the next fifteen minutes pwning them =)

About halfway into it while we were waiting on more friends, I popped my romantic picnic umbrella and all of us sat down and went to sleep. I don't think the hordies liked this very much :)
Then our friends arrived and the battle began again. This went on a LONG time, back and forth. Evenutally we had about fifteen players on each side and we just kept killing each other over and over.

I don't care for PvP, but this was fun.

"Why?" you say.

Because of all the battles we fought, the outcome was pretty much a 50/50 split. No group ever kept the advantage. Neither losing or winning all the time is fun, but if you get a good balance it becomes a challenge, AND it is entertaining.

This was the most fun I have ever had in PvP.

It sure beats the 90% losing percentage that the alliance experience in all the battlegrounds except for Alterac Valley.

Yes. World PvP exists. You just have to start something.
