For example, if crossrealm BGs are not implemented I will probably roll Alliance. I had bad experience with Horde queues on PVP servers... 10, 20, 30 minutes. Not fun if you're looking to PVP. Otherwise, I'm probably going Horde.

On private servers maybe. And that highly depends on which private servers you were on. On Light's Hope I've heard that all the major PvP-ers from Elysium decided to band together on the Alliance side which pretty much killed Horde. On Elysium, it was fairly balanced and alright.

Again, don't base your future retail experience based on what you've had on private servers. There won't be people playing from 3 timezones, 10k realms, no jump skips in AV, lot of proc items will likely be different and so forth. You're far better off just paying attention to where guilds/populations are going, maybe finding a PvP guild to get into.

Onwards, sons of perdition!

I never played on a private server.

Indeed... but hopefully they still give us some BG info ahead of time!

I'm not gonna worry about anything like that. Maybe I'm being overly optimistic but I'm hoping we don't see any big issues like that.

When I played Vanilla, BG ques were absolutely horrible. So I (brother and I) had to find creative ways to gain honor while we waited in line to slay Blargh and Pensixteen on Mal'Ganis. (I was happy to meet one of their crew in line for the BC midnight release back in the day at GameStop!)
