Some of my thoughts on the recent WvW blog post as I look at things like supply, NPC allies, and server size:

Quote

The supply mechanic also means that a determined server can bleed out a well-defended keep. If the supply trains stop coming to help fortifications, but supply is added to the attacking force to build more siege engines the keep will fall. It appears that skirmishes on secondary objectives will be critical while the siege continues. I like, at least on paper, this “soft” gating as compared to Warhammer Online‘s hard gating using minor objectives.

'WuvWuv' needs to become the official pronounciation for World vs World. Just my 2c.

I say "dub vee dub", but I would gladly change my tune to "WuvWuv" if it catches on.

Wouldn't it be WuvWuh? Since its WvW, not WvWv.

It would be WuvWuvWuh (WvWvW)

But WuvWuv sounds funnier.

When I see 'wuv' I immediately think of the Priest from The Princess Bride and his sermon about True Wuv haha.

On topic, good article Ravious. I'm glad as well to see that groups will have something to do in WvW during off hours for the server.

Heh, I thought you meant WvW as a system or a concept. Never thee mind.

Ah haha sorry. No, WvW as a system sounds even better than "RvR" ™ from DAoC. The name is awful though :D

I feel as if ArenaNet took time to ensure a battleground with constant activity.
As it should be :)

I just call it world versus world when I say it aloud. WvW for text of course.
