Naturally, I am looking for a guild with people who share the same thoughts and who play BGs. It seems, however, that I might not be able to find such a guild or at least that the search might take quite a while. So I am wondering if, as a second option, there is such a class and spec that could be played ironman-like, without relying on support of anyone else. That is, I'd gladly play BGs as part of a team, but in case I won't be able to find one, what class and spec would be best suited for playing alone? Obviously, things like being able to heal yourself and stealth should help, but control seems pretty important too and having large burst might be key (or how I am even going to kill anyone).
I would really appreciate some feedback here. Does anyone play BGs (non-rated, non-twink, any level) specifically trying to be a one-man-army? What was your experience? What class and spec would you suggest for this and what advice you would offer?
Thanks in advance.
P.S.: If you belong to a guild of casual players who regularly do BGs and are accepting new players - or even if you don't belong to such a guild but merely know of one, please leave their name in the comments. Thank you!

Could you both elaborate a bit?
Were you playing as one-man-army lock / rogue in leveling BGs or in max-level BGs? What was your death / kill ratio like? Any advice on tactics?

Sounds to me like you need to roll a rogue.
I'll second that. Even in my crappy gear I can sneak off and be a nuisance anywhere, with or without a team. Sap a healer so he gets left behind when enemies go by, stealth cap a base and so on. Go full attack from stealth on the healer as the rest of your team catches up to the EFC pack.
if you look one man army in this moment is Blood DK
full OP in attack, self heal better then any class, and have tank spec.
Fortunately for us in next patch they will nerf
but still all class can be one man army if you start play this class with mind
rogue - stealth, recover healt - annoying to hell on BG around some flag area
priest - selfheal, fear machine, holy shield
hunter - mobile and deadly
paladin - bouble dmg beast (if they all in CD)
shaman - it is impossible to kill while having totems
warrior - deadly when have some healer behind back
mage - mobile frozen death
warlock - invisible but deadly - invisible because it is not usually first on the list of attack
DK - OP class that should be deleted entirely

You don't have to be invincible - you just have to not care if you die. I'll quite happily jump into a crowd of Rogues and DKs, DoT everything I can reach and die horribly if it gains something for the team.
If you just want to 'win' ie kill everybody else - well, tough.
