Compared to last week there were 10 commanders, long-ass overflow, and so many people at gates that the classic GW2-rendering kicked in.

War Machine must have broken our spirits somewhat.

I'm in SBI LA on a looooooooong queue talking to great commanders and WvWers I know that could not get it either and are waiting. I can only imagine who got in.

There is always a good and a bad side to everything.

If it makes you feel any better your server is winning by a significant margin already. You have like 3 towers and a keep from us.

Ah, it seems everyone wants to get in there. I hear EB is way worse (as per usual). JQ BL was where I went.

I'm surprised it took the bandwagon this long to show up. We had instant queues all week this past week.

as long as we keep winning with the bandwagon on board I am good with that.  Although its  a pita to get on the server now due to us being full all the time.

Your server and Sea of Sorrows have been full all week. Must have been a patch rush or something.

Yeah... Idk. I have my doubts about the bandwagon. I was talking to a guildie who had to wait all week to get 4 of her friends into the server. Can't imagine the bandwagon would fare any better.

When there's a will, there's a way. And bandwagons have +20 to will for transfer purposes :)

Oh I don't doubt it.  Although luckily I don't feel that even if the bandwagoneers come over that it will destroy the server.  Most of the guilds that are here have been here since beta 2 and we prebuilt a very strong community even before the game launched.

I wish I could actually log in long enough for some WvW this week... I've got tech week for my school's drama club to deal with, and three or four big projects to wrap up. Silly schedules and timing and luck D: But this match should be just as exciting as the last one!! :)

I have a feeling JQ doesnt wanna get first and will settle for second this round.
I've kind of gotten that impression around here, too... I hope that the militia/squad portion of the WvW community starts to shoot for first consistently, since that's what our competition is doing!

Does Lion's Arch have a shorter queue? I'm still really lost when it comes to the queue mechanics...

Yuck, I seriously just want ANet to start charging for server transfers. If groups of friends are still hopping servers two months after the game has launched, they're server hopping for all the wrong reasons. One-week lockouts on transfers can only do so much...

All tier 1 servers should be welcoming of transfers, they're part of the reason why we're doing so well.

Exactly this. If you move to JQ and want to WvW, I welcome you. Sure queues might suck at times, but I'd rather sit through queues than always get instantly in. Queues on all maps = better for the server.

No, im going to assume you havent been in BG for long. Judging by all you posts (which all borderline troll-worthy), you seem to complain endlessly about population imbalances, koreans and outmanned buff.
Much of the native BG population is more concerned about having fun then winning unlike you. And hour long queues are not fun. BGs WvW is fine as is, all thats needed now is to refine tactics.
