I'VE GOT IT!Turn it into a matter of honor. REALLY. That's what the system is called, right?Neither faction even gets ACCESS to warmode without AT LEAST 30% participation as of the server reset. Now let's talk about those island expeditions...

All I ever hear about this "PvP" is a lot of complaining. Makes me believe everyone would be a lot happier if it wasn't even a thing.
Of course, that is what many of us did. I loathe PVP as do many Alliance players. Being grossly outnumbered and ganked by the horde is just no fun. Sorry, not sorry.
They won't stop with the rewards. The simple reason being statistically very few Alliance people want to PVP. It appears that the Horde draws the PVP crowd and they will have no one to murder if Blizzard takes away the inducement to turn war mode on. They should just let the Horde kill each other.
90+% of the actual raiders/pvp are horde atm. they swapped for the racials back in legion and others chased them to raid/pvp with them. so now when they run with wm on they curb stomp the alliance because they have far better gear then they opposition while having more of them to do it. you want this to be fixed then remove all horde racials from pvp and raids. lets see how long they stay at 90%+ with zero racials to help them like the alliance has to do.
Might be because alliance have been camping the port area, as if they are taking the raid literally lol
Even so ,what did they do once it was done ? They turn back on wm Off . That's why Horde side don't have the quest this week while massively going in wm off. The system right now , isn't working. I don't know but the purpose should be to balance both side so that people can do world pvp Not for farming 25 man for alliance and going wm off to have back the 30% after that, and making horde side out of wm on to give them hope of a bigger bonus at some point. Either they need to make their sharding system actualy work, orr give horde player bonus on wm off, or give horde player free transfer faction to even the faction ( If you remember that's what they were doing and it was working quite well , never did understand why they stoped doing it)
What I really find amazing is everyone in this thread is mad at the wrong people.
Players - "Warmode sucks, it's not worth in, I don't want to play it" Blizzard - "What? people don't play warmode? Let's increase the reward so they have an incentive to do it." Players - "Okay... we'll do warmode and get the reward, then go back to normal."Blizzard -"oh, they are starting to use it more? good, take away the increased reward, they don't need it any more since they are playing it" Players - "... not worth my time" Warmode has never been worth it. I mean you loose more than you gain from the time you waste running back after getting killed and paying the repair bills. If I wanted to PVP I'd go do a battle ground or play on a PVP server (when they were a thing) It's generally unbalanced on most servers, and not fun for people who try to queue for say a world boss or a rare questing group only to find that oops every one else is in WM even though the group finder had no WM tags or even said WM off some times. I will say the good side of warmode is there are fewer people trying to gank players doing world bosses of the opposite faction, and healing a wb you don't have to worry about that one player who is flagged so you can't heal because the game won't let you auto flag any more. I wish they would just take pvp out of the game finally. I mean it has always been a flawed system and we've seen so many class nerfs and balances in the game which broke PVE progression and needed hot fixes badly after that it's just stupid. The last few xpacs having separate talent trees and making changes like warmode have helped, but I think the health of the game would be a lot better if they scrapped it and just focused on actual content and not wasting time and funding on balancing pvp again because oh no, the newest raid gear made x class op in pvp and that's not fair!
want to have a good experience in this game, just go Horde. While that may be a loaded thing to say, you can't blame people for saying it. Horde camped alliance everywhere they could for weeks and nothing was done. For one week the tables were turned with a nice piece of loot to go along with it...and look what happened. When they say "For the Horde" they damn sure aint lying.
Amen to that brother.
