Not long after I wrote this article, the Horde managed to capture Tol Barad on my server. After what I wrote in this column, I was frankly ready to give it up for lost–as were several Alliance in the team I was playing with at the time. Some even went so far as to say, “Goodbye, stupid Alliance! I’m switching over to my Horde character,” apparently ignorant of the fact that the troubles associated with winning back Tol Barad had much more to do with the design. But the good news? The Alliance won it back in a later battle, and I don’t think I’ve seen the Horde in control since then.
