I tried this last tuesday when I was playing on stormreaver with my shaman, me and friend was playing some 2v2 and there alot of traffic that day, people kept DCing etc. So we're facing 2 dreamstate druids, which we lost against.

Then when we joined the next game, and that druid we just played against was on OUR team, an allaince druid playing with 2 hordes in a 2v2. He was able to heal us lol and we won the game 3v2, I just couldn't fucking believe it. Has any of you ever experienced somethign similar? I'll provide screenshot later, still at school :P

I reckon it had somethign to do with all the disconnects and the que system being overloaded on a tuesday, but still pretty fun to play 3v2 :D

How could it be 3v2 if he was one of them? or was it another random?

he's like 200 rating higher than us so it's all pretty strange

He was just an extra player, the other team was 2 horde players.

I don't think he was from that double druid team, just checked his armory, so it didn't have anythign to do with that I guess. Wish I knew how it happend so I could exploit it ^^, but I'm guessing it had something to do with the long ques on a tuesday and the matchup system fucking it up

I've heard of this before, it can happen any time not just on Tuesdays. Basically he DCs from his game (possibly just as it's starting), his game ends, the game ID# gets reused in your game, he reconnects and WoW thinks 'ah that's the game ID# that char was queued for, I'll put him in that game' and hey presto you've got an alliance druid healing your ass.
