My Cali friend and RL friend were tired of being on a PVP server and so was I. They went to Eitrigg PVE (Vengeance) and started over on new toons becoming horde, but I stayed on Korgath... We were in the same battlegroup, but different factions. I was able to go into an Alterac Valley and told my Cali friend which AV I was in so he queued for it and got in. We met up near SFGY and took some pics. We took turns fearing each other and not attacking. A gnome mage showed up and started attacking my friend but he ignored my cries of "Wait! That's my friend!" My friend pwned him though LOL.
My coworker and his friends later moved to another realm as horde then decided to come back to Korgath later as horde. I'm glad I didn't follow them like last time and waste money on a transfer.
In my experience of being on Korgath, alliance lose a lot of BGs... Level 80 AV was the one BG (and the only BG I enjoyed) that I could count on us winning about 70% of the time. In the last few months alliance is now losing most of those battles. It's very frustrating having so many losses, even if we have a shorter random BG queue time. My friends on Eitrigg horde get a lot of BG wins but they hardly ever win Wintergrasp because of the lower population ratio to alliance.
I've been researching different battlegroups/realms and I'm so set on moving to a PVE server. I work on a lot of alts and hate having to be paranoid when I'm questing/farming in fear of being attacked or ganked. I don't even attack any horde unless they come after me. It's hard to find accurate info on the WOW forums for a battlegroup that wins at least 50% BGs but I'm hearing that Cataclysm will change how battlegroups work and most likely the wins/losses that factions/servers are used to having. Sigh... Plus I have five 80's, two in the 70s bracket, and many banks on two accounts.
My RL best friend on Eitrigg horde plays sporadically since her boyfriend doesn't liker her playing and my Cali friend from Eitrigg transferred his main to Hyjal PVE (Whirlwind). They both like being horde and I've always preferred the alliance. I have a couple close friends on Korgath with me but we all play at different times and don't even play together. We do our own thing but talk in our guild chat. I kind of feel like I'm "alone" in WOW so I should put myself first when it comes to my happiness in WOW. That means me paying for multiple toons to a PVE server... but which server? Which faction? Should I move to Hyjal where my friend is? Or move to a different realm like Bronzebeard where the female guilds are? Decisions, decisions... I'd feel bad too if I convinced my friends to move to a certain server with me and then it turns out I can't play with them at all since I'm trying to get a job right now where the hours aren't set so I'd be playing at random times.
In all of my World of Warcraft life, I have been on a PVP server. I first started playing WOW in 2007 when my coworker at the time told me about the game. He was alliance on Kalecgos PVP (Shadowburn) with friends so he suggested I try out the game and make a toon on his realm so he could help me. After some time, he decided to transfer to Korgath PVP (Vengeance) with his friends. I had made an online friend in California on Kalecgos and had gotten my real life best friend to try out WOW too. I don't really remember why I transferred to Korgath too, but my Cali friend transferred with me and my RL friend decided to make a new toon on Korgath.
