The priest fear spell is an instant cast spell on a 30 seconds timer(25 w/ talents I think), and it only fears 5 people at its highest rank.
The warlock has a similar ranged aoe spell which fears 5 people in the targeted area to be feared, has a casting time of 2 seconds, and is on a 40 sec timer.
The only AOE fear w/o a limit on the number of people that can be affected(or maybe a much higher limit) is intimidating shout, which a warrior has, and is on a 2-min timer. A lot of the times, this spell can be a life saver in small group PvP or 1vsX PvP. Everyone around the warrior is feared, except for the targeted person, which "cowers in fear", meaning stays in place, but that effect breaks on damage.
The people who usually fear in hillsbrad are the warriors. When people are bunched up, you might have a warrior charge someone, fear everyone, and then everyone else beats up on the one person the warrior charged.
Now the fighting in hillsbrad isn't actually PvP. It's just like you said, 50 alliance on one side, and 50 horde on the other side, and when a straggler gets in the middle, everyone targets him, and he/she dies in 5 seconds.
If you want to have fun PvPing, search for it in small groups. I'm usually in a group of 2 to 5 people, and have the most fun when we stumble upon similar groups or when outnumbered.
This might not be valid for some on their server due to low populations, or due to people not realizing this is more fun than the hillsbrad stupidity.
