We all know that the factions are unbalanced, and not just slightly. Many people have offered numerous suggestions, such as to buff Alliance racials, or to nerf Horde racials, or whatever. The time to do that sort of thing was roughly 13 years ago, and maybe Kil'jaeden Mythic. But at this point, that ship has long sailed and it's not worth trying to chase it down.
The Problem is pretty clear. Upwards of 70% of the playerbase who actively plays dungeons and raids are Horde, and the inverse is true on Oceania, this isn't an 'Alliance v Horde' thing, both sides are suffering in certain regions, but for the most part, Horde overwhelms in EU and NA to a huge degree.
This has been like this for a while, but is getting worse tier by tier. We recently saw many guilds on Ravencrest EU transfer to Horde. This isn't because Horde racials are better. It's simply a snowball effect, more people are on Horde, so I go horde. More top end players are on horde - the average player wants to get better, so they go Horde, so then their friends go Horde, and then everyone ends up being Horde except the few diehards who remain loyal to a withering entity. Pugging on Alliance is kind of sad, much less groups and lower quality of groups too.
Looking at Raider.io and filtering by faction (Jan 3rd 2021)
Sire Denathrius Heroic:
Horde: 1577 Guilds (78.2%)
Alliance: 439 Guilds (21.8%)
Sire Denathrius Normal:
Horde: 13425 Guilds (67.8%)
Alliance: 6373 Guilds (32.2%
That's not ideal, Heroic is still pretty difficult for many players so it's not unsurprising that it is Horde dominated, Sire Normal being only 32% Alliance is concerning though. Of course this doesn't take into account PuGs afaik, but ultimately I highly doubt that there are enough PuGs on Alliance to cover this huge guild deficit.
Mythic + "I only do Mythic+, Raiding figures don't apply to me."
Unfortunately, it does, and even worse than for the raiders. Since we're dealing with players, that includes Pick up Groups, not just raid guilds.
I won't bother covering the super top end, players with 1.5k+ score, but as you can imagine it's roughly 85% Horde.
How about the Average Joe, though? He does a few 5s, 6s, 7s and maybe even an 8, he might have completed a 10 or two but he finds it pretty challenging.
Players over 750 RIO:
Horde: 108387 (73.9%)
Alliance: 38282 (26.1%)
Players over 500 RIO:
Horde: 267165 (70.4%)
Alliance: 112520 (29.6%)
Okay -..not great either... keep reading on reddit ➡
My mom had been starving me everytime my dad went out of town for work, and she would withhold food from me as punishment. She would then threaten my to keep quiet about it and hide it from my dad by saying she would kill me, my dad or my dog if I told my dad what was happening. My parents just started the divorce process about 3 weeks ago.
After 2 years I told my dad on Jan 12, 2021. He immediately got me and my dog out of the house and to his sisters, he applied and was granted emergency custody of me, and yesterday he got us moved into a different house that he owns (he used to rent this house out but there’s currently no renters in it)
Dad and I also both start individual therapy and therapy together on Tuesday.
Now that things have calmed a bit and dad and I have a sense of safety finally - it occurred to me that I don’t have a mom anymore. Yes I have a mother, the woman who birthed me but I don’t have a mom.
I don’t have a mom to talk to about boys, or pick prom dresses with, or anything else........(and my dad is the type that he will do those things and try his best for me, but it’s just different)
Will I be ok without a mom?
I hate when drivers stop to let me cross. Unless it's incredibly busy that that's the only way I can cross (its usually not). I'd much rather they just don't stop and let me cross at my leisure. I don't like being rushed. I'm taking mostly about parking lots and streets without the button.
I don't know where else to put this. I never expected we would be here. I have no idea how to even process that amount of death.
Today I found out my husband has been cross-dressing, wearing silicone boobs and lingerie, and taking pictures with sex toys to share online. We’ve been married for nine years and together for fifteen. He says he’s been doing this since before we met, and this is the first time he’s ever talked to me about it.
Many, many years ago I found a photo on his phone of his butt in black lingerie - when I confronted him about it, he laughed it off as a joke. Then several years later I found another photo AS I was clearing his “deleted photos” folder, but it disappeared before I could get a close look. He said it was a screen shot from porn (and I don’t really care if he looks at porn). Then I found a couple of wigs in our bedroom - he said he bought them for me to role-play (I am NOT kink-shaming, but it’s not my thing). Today I found an email address on his phone that said “discreet [woman’s name]” and was able to hack into it and follow some digital breadcrumbs. He had an account with a website that does live cams, but he was one of the performers. I put two and two together and confronted him.
There’s been a backpack in his car trunk that I noticed a long time ago, but he hides presents and surprises for me in his trunk so I thought that’s what it was. An Amazon account in his female-named email address showed that exact backpack...so I opened it up and found lingerie, women’s clothing, silicone boobs, a dildo, and condoms. He told me he’s been posing for photos on these websites, but that no one sees his face.
He says he makes a couple hundred dollars a month doing this, but here’s the thing. He makes really good money, like almost $200k a year. So it’s obviously not about the money, it’s about gratification. And why would he need condoms for these photos or web-cams? I feel like I am NOT getting the full story, especially because he’s been keeping this from me for almost fifteen years.
He’s a wonderful man - kind, caring, and an amazing father to our little kids. I can’t just break up with him or divorce him. We have a family. Also, I am very open-minded and pro-LGBTQ+, and am not the kind of person who would be morally offended by a man cross-dressing. So why couldn’t he be honest with me? How do you deal with it when you find out your partner has been keeping such a big secret for so long? What the hell do I do?!
TLDR: my husband (and father of my kids) has been cross-dressing and hiding it from me for fifteen years, doesn’t need th... keep reading on reddit ➡
