Or you get to play against /toggle walk campfire makers at AB's farm and WSG's flag room. And you never get cancer, just giggles and free worthy HKs
On topic though, if you don't want to die of boredom as a rogue in a premade, make sure to lead it so you don't have to anchor a base/def FR every single game vs pugs like it has been described. You have many ways of providing way more than that. That's where you'll enjoy ranking.
For instance, go for solo ninja cap missions in AB which sometimes lets you have funky 1 vs x (if the guys aren't afk/didn't give up already) and turn games around or at least apply pressure/distraction.
Learn how to never let the flag carrier get away from your flag room, regardless of class. If in a 1 vs x situation, get the better end of it (nuke the healer, force the mage to use IB/cold snap, delay the fapped druid as long as possible, etc). Being dedicated to flag room defense is one thing. Being a real nightmare for any enemy FC and excellent at this is another one.
Otherwise, invest in a good coffee machine so you don't fall asleep. Make yourself valuable to the team and relevant at any moment in every BG. Having an impact is very easy as a rogue. The difference is between being proactive + efficient and being passive.
Make sure to yell louder than warriors to get healed/dispelled in tfs. You are at the bottom of the heal/dispel chain (for a reason). So when you do need one, make it happen.
Yell even louder what you're about to sap/blind/gouge, otherwise ppl will always fuck it up, especially when it's a flag capping CC.
Be vocal. You become an asset once you are able to provide the right informations at the right times (that's 80% of your job. 10% is killing/ccing/anchoring/defing/capping. 10% left is (thistle)tea bagging undead clothies like Bofadeez).
Example: instead of randomly saying "inc flagroom", say number + classes, from where they are coming, where they are going (and ideally with raid warning macros + keybinds on them), even the player name if relevant (X druid, always prepop fap, ask for someone namely in your team to come dispel it).
When not grinding honor, grab empty cans of beer and pretend they are nades. Train you aim with it on your little sister/pet/a flee or w.e. You must become master to 360 preshot nade tricks on blinking babyvurtnes#editedbygoth.
Get something to drink/smoke/swallow to waste yourself even further. Play with ppl you enjoy playing with (even if they are a yelling portugese warlock, a strong accent french magus, a crazy spanish tilting for a scratch, a female gnome war with no pigtails, muricans with weirdo play shifts, a shady balkan female dwarf and a drunk male NE with TuF).
Enjoy the ride.
