Why is AB so hard for people to understand?

So many times have I seen people use their mobility CDs to get to the starter flag soooo quick, only to just up and leave it empty seconds later. Is the average player really that stupid?

I can't wait for this to not be CTA. I also wish for the ability to opt out of CTA for future ABs =P.

I play Alliance mostly, though I see it on both factions.

Why the hell would you use your fastest player to cap the flag that you're assured to cap? Why not use that player to gain a tactical advantage at one of the contested flags by having them engage the opposing team at a positionally advantageous position for anyone following behind? If I engage the enemy 40 yards past the flag, that's 40 yards that they have to move to be in a position to attack whoever is capping behind me. You attack through the flag and defend on the flag.

Exactly. I've seen Rogues pop Sprint, Warriors Heroic Leap, Mages Blink, you name it. They all do that right to the first flag, cap it, and then go fight on the roads somewhere. It's ridiculous.

I just hate the idiots that will cap LM/GM and then try to push Farm/Stables when we already have 3

Every time that happens we lose..

While I understand and agree with your point, HL and Blink will be back up before they are needed. Probably Sprint too. Anyways, people do this because they are assuming stables/farm will be kept the whole game and they get easy honor for capping it.

The real problem in AB is morons that go for Stables/Farm (opposing side) when they don't have the other 4 capped. If you do that and the opposing has one of the others, they will just spawn there and be able to pick off the others. Take the opposing "starter" node during a 4-cap ONLY..that way you choke them in their base and win with a 5. DURRR

I've come to the conclusion that thinking too much about BGs and what other players are doing is just too stressful. You are never going to change their behavior.

Also, the problem with strategizing in a BG is that the other team isn't AI. For the most part everyone is there to win and I don't think any player is joining just to lose. Might as well get over thinking that players are sabotaging your BG experience.

Isnt there a cheiv for capping basses in AB to get the main master of AB or something? Maybe not, but that would explain it if there was.

Edit:^^..There is> http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=158

Also, random bg's are random. Most people just go in there to let loose and go crazy because it doesnt mean anything. Not much more to it than that.
