My name is Riku Shinobu and I am hear to ask for your help in Fort Aspenwood.

Fort Aspenwood is in desperate need of players to defend our lands in WvW during our night hours. If you’re a European or Oceanic guild that is looking for better queue times and a world with a day time force that will defend while you are asleep then Fort Aspenwood is the homeworld for you.

I am the leader of the guild Upper Echelon [Echo]. We are a smaller WvW guild, 152 members total with 70 of which who are devoted to WvW. We work very closely with the Fort Aspenwood Alliance, which is a collection of guilds that are also devoted to WvW.

To make things concise, I will list the benefits of moving to the Fort Aspenwood homeworld.

-There are no queue times during our night hours.

-Our daytime force is very experienced in WvW, but we lack the numbers at night to hold keeps and towers.

-The commanders in our world work hand in hand with other commanders on the map to succeed. There is very little in-fighting between commanders.

-We follow the belief that zerging from tower to tower isn't that great of a thing. When we take towers, we leave forces between 5-10 to defend it and upgrade it. With no night players though, empty towers and keeps are easy to take.

-Communication between guilds in WvW is a priority. Information from each WvW map is constantly shared.

If you’re guild is looking for better queue times in WvW, then send me a message on the forums, or send a whisper to any of the following people in-game:

Riku Shinobu ([Echo] Co-leader)

Lillusionniste D ([Echo] WvW Commander)

Derv The Monkinator ([Gods] Leader and [FAA] Leader)

Fort Aspenwood has many players dedicated to winning in WvW, and we need your help to take us to the top!

Due to the server transfers, FA has had some pretty bad match ups over the past few weeks. Our NA prime time crew is very good but we are lacking off hour players. Logging on in the morning to 30-50 potential points for 3 weeks straight has started to take its toll on the morale of our server; if we could hold things over night we would have more players interested in playing during the day. We still have the numbers and coordination at night (we usually claw our way back into contention) but our lack of overall coverage hurts us in the final score. Asian/Oceanic/EU guilds helping us hold our things over night would really increase the server morale as a whole and would be the most important thing to happen to our WvW community since launch. You will be the saviors of FA and everyone will know of your contribution in the morning. So if you want to be famous on a server come to FA!

The time zones we are lacking coverage in are between GMT 0 and GMT +12

FA is a great server and well worth considering.   They should make the top 6-9 easily with the right coverage.

I'm not sure how much I support this.  It just seems to snowball into s---fests.  Look what Blackgate has devolved into over the last two weeks.  I just got done reading a thread on GW2 forums from players talking about 2 hour queues and having no one to fight when they eventually get in.

Don't get me wrong, I love competitive matches.  I love winning.  But with all the free transfer non-sense and ridiculous outmanned buffs that promote server stacking there doesn't seem to be any acceptable middle ground these days...

Hope that makes sense.

Edit: All that said, if we just got a handful of good overnight crews that can support our prime time crews, then yes, I totally support this.

The LAST thing we ever want to be is another Wagongate. We arent recruiting everyone and anyone who will transfer over, we are just hoping a few good guilds will notice this and come along to help out our EU and Oceanic timezones.

We are being modest our NA crew is real good.  Our server is suffering from demoralization due to a lack of overnight coverage.  If 2-3 guilds were to consider our server it would motivate everyone to push for the best coverage we can.  Then when our defenses stay upgraded over the weekend we will have a much stronger finish going into the end of the week.

No server can control when transfers start and when they stop to a server. If people want to hitch a wagon to your server, they will. And there is nothing you can do to stop it. BG didn't "recruit everyone and anyone" either but it didn't stop guilds following other guilds here.

I like us! Go FA! Lots of kicking in teeth and taking names... but having some off-hours support would be HUGE for our morale! :D

I think a lot of servers need more oceanic players,  Tarnished Coast rarely has coverage on late nights as well.  not as much as we need anyway.

Looks like weekday coverage and queues are instant for servers 1 through 5.  During weekend 1 through 5 have 24/7 queues probably same everywhere where there is NA dedicated PvP'rs.  You are gonna have a tough time making a case...but good luck.

Well you certainly have more than FA as showed by the score in the mornings.

As a leader of a 25-person euro guild, the reason why most of euro ppl won't switch over is 1. we have no queue times in europe anyway and 2. nobody feels switching over to a worse latency area that is basically deserted in our playtime both in pve and wvw is particularly appealing (I wanna do a dungeon? Oh, f* me, right? There isn't anyone around). Playing night watchmen for someone is boring as hell. In fact, why don't you guys consider switching over to our server? We don't have a night crew either, fort aspenwood wvw team would fit in perfectly?

I would love to have some night time coverage on our server. FA can battle with the best of them in our our primetime hours, but once we log off....I'm waiting for that Oceanic guild out there to make the bold move and hop over to our server. Join a server in which you're needed and appreciated :) Fort Aspenwood is not only a good server for WvW, but also PvE. I know a lot of guilds out there are PvX guilds and focus on areas outside of WvW. Fort Aspenwood as a whole, is a very good server to be on. PainTrain is loving it and having tons of fun here!

We did good last night in WvW until about 11pm server time. At that point the outmanned buff turned on and dragonbrands night crew came and capped almost everything we had dragonbrand borderlands.

I defend greenvale with 5 guys against a zerg of about 30-40. It was a good death.

Ya...Im a bit of a loner....Sgt Rock of SHOT...theres only about three of us SHOT memebers on at any given time...not a large guild mind you, hehe.  So I end up runnin around tryin to find groups.  Last night was a wee bit painful for me.  Every turn I made...was the wrong one, hehe.  Normally Im pretty lucky findin a strong group...be it a small group of 5 to 8 members that I tag along with...or a herd of pain.  Not last night tho.....we had a good showing...just wasnt lucky enough to hook up with anyone for long.


Oh....ya was agreein to the good fights last night...my brain went to left field there for a minute, hehe :P

Or... NA guilds on FA transfer over to Sea of Sorrows.  We're absolutely dominating as a server now and steamrolling Tier 2.  You remember how we used to get 100% map during Oceanic hours right? Well now we hold it overnight with our new NA guilds.  If a few more solid NA guilds were to transfer over I highly doubt any server could stand a chance against us including the powerhouses in Tier 1.

I haven't received anymore messages from people. I know that there is an FAA raidcall being made, with the possibility of a mumble server.

Keeping the call for some overnight coverage going.  Our NA primetime crew has been doing their best this week to hold things down late into the night, but everyone has to sleep sometime.  A couple of guilds could make the difference to us waking up to keeping the fully upgraded keeps we worked so hard to take and build up.
