WoW Classic's Alterac Valley has been heavily dominated by Horde wins ever since the Alliance was banned from creating premade AV teams. Even then, the map by default favored the Horde so it would take a superior game from the Alliance --combined with poor luck on the Horde side-- to eek out an Alliance victory.
That being said, in all of my AV runs in Classic I'd never seen Ivus the Forest Lord summoned or the Ram Riders charging into the fight.
I got to see both the other night.
I wasn't around to summon Ivus, as I was defending Stormpike Graveyard at the time, but I was around to help get the ram riders ready.

|Back when the commander led|
troops into battle.
|Cardwyn followed along|
as they charged through Dun Baldar...
|...across the bridge...|
|...into the ravine...|
|...and toward the Field of Strife.|
The Horde never knew what hit them.

EtA: And when I meant the theme from Patton, I meant the march:
